With a new year on the way, it’s time to concentrate on resolutions and ways to make sure the coming year goes well. What better time to turn your attention to your home? The start of a new year seems like the perfect time to update your home, doesn’t it? Self-improvement is all well and good, but you can’t do it unless you have your home right. The space you live in has a major effect on how you feel. We’re going to look at a few ways you can give your home the makeover it needs to start your new year right.
STEP AWAY FROM WHAT YOU KNOW
As a new year is all about stepping into the unknown, why not install this into your makeover? If you want your home to be new and exciting, stepping away from the familiar can be just the trick. They do say that change is as good as a holiday, so why not give it a go? If you generally choose mellow or neutral colours, why not go for something a little more extreme? Bright colours can be an excellent way to breathe life into a room. Or, if you’re used to bright colours on your walls, why not choose something that’s calmer. Bright colours may breathe life, but calm colours can take the edge off a space. It may be just what you need after a busy day.
Getting creative with your decorating can be a lot of fun. It can also look great if you do it right.
Getting a little painting walls advice can help you ensure you’re doing things the way you should. Once you know a few basics, you can have a little fun. You can get as creative with this as you like. Think of your walls as your canvas. Do you fancy a striped room? Or maybe you would like to do a little wall art? If you want to get really arty, why not do some paint flicking? Any of these techniques is sure to get people talking about your home. Adding artistic flourishes is an excellent way to inject personality into your rooms!
No home makeover is complete without some new furniture. Choose this after you’ve done your decorating so everything goes together well. Not to mention that it’ll avoid any paint getting on your new pieces! As well as thinking about your major furnitures, like sofas and tables, you should focus on small additions. Accessories make a room, and getting them right will finish your makeover off nicely. The additions you choose are up to you. Do you want art hanging from your walls? Maybe you would like some subtle decorative flourishes such as vases and ornaments. All of this will depend, too, upon your colour choice. If you’ve gone for a loud colour, loud accessories and lots of them can look great. If you’ve gone for a calmer colour, it might be best to keep things minimal.
