There are plenty of good reasons to redecorate your home, and you may be hit with the inspiration to do so at any time. Maybe you’ve recently moved into a new place, and you’ve decided to really make it “yours”. Maybe you want a fresh look for a home you’ve lived in for a while. Maybe you’ve taken an interest in visual designs and want to “wow” your guests.
Whatever your reason, a tasteful redecoration breathes new life into your home, and it’s beneficial if you’re planning to sell later: an updated style increases the resale value of a home. While you can always go all out on an expensive reimagining of your home, there are easier and cheaper versions that can make just as big of a difference if executed well. What follows are some tasteful ways to redecorate that won’t break the bank.
You’d be surprised what a difference improved lighting can make throughout your home. It’s a simple addition that complements any other improvements, especially when paired with natural decorations like floral arrangements or other plants.
In general, you want multiple light sources in each room, and many decorators recommend three. You’ll always need overhead lighting, but it’s worth considering some other sources to show off specific areas or decorations. Lamps for table lighting or wall lighting to show off certain fixtures are a good start. Installing dimmers is always a good idea for total control of a room’s atmosphere.
Considering bulb type and color is also important, as this can make a huge difference in ambient effect. Planning your desired function of each room should help with these decisions.
Speaking of fixtures to show off with wall lights, investing in some museum-quality Simple Canvas Prints is a great idea. These high-quality prints can drastically improve a room for as cheap as a fast food meal (in some cases). Options range from framed photos to rolled canvas or wall art. A highly detailed family photo could hang in the living room. Original artwork could be shown off in a personal studio. Color schemes of rooms could be altered with abstract pieces or anything else the imagination can conjure.
Even if you don’t feel confident in this area yourself, you could always select one of the expertly crafted canvas collections available. All canvases are guaranteed, so combining that with expert help essentially eliminates any risk involved.
It goes without saying that your furniture and display items have a huge impact on the
overall look of your home. While you could always take the expensive route and buy all new furniture and display items, this isn’t necessary. Natural decorations, such as the previously mentioned plant arrangements, can make a big difference without a big budget. Rock or shell collections can also go a long way to altering your home’s vibe.
Of course, there’s also the possibility of improving the things you already have. For example, you could add paneling to cabinets to bring them up to date. Giving fixtures a fresh coat of paint is any easy way to give your home a new color scheme as well. Even something as simple as decorative wallpaper lining a bookshelf can be a big improvement.
Anyone can have a beautiful home if they really want to. Keep in mind, however, that it’s often just as important to decide what to remove from your home as it is to decide what to add to it. Items that don’t match your new vision or that you deem unseemly should be removed immediately. They will put a damper on your new design for as long as they remain.
