Refurbishing your home doesn’t have to be a very complex process. There are simple things you can do to give your old home a brand new look. Here are some ideas to get you inspired:
Paint the Front Door
If you are under budget, a bit lazy, but still want to make your home look different, consider painting the front door. Choose a bold and perhaps garish colour to make it really stand out. There are commercial benefits to having an eye-catching front door too. You may be able to up the resale value of your home if you plan on moving out soon. Even though it’s simple, potential home buyers often judge homes by how the front areas looks!
Get a New Look with New Flooring
If you cannot bear to look at old rooms like the kitchen and the bathroom anymore, consider changing the flooring. This is a bit of a complicated process, but it’s more affordable than making other types of structural changes. Changing the kitchen tiles, for example, is more affordable than you think. You can replace the old tiles with a slick and modern ceramic designs that will make the kitchen area look quite posh. You can try the same with the bathroom or the living room as well.
Change the Curtains
Want to almost instantly change the way your living room looks? Then change the curtains. Try a new colour or a new type of material that will add flare to your home. Or you can give up curtains entirely and choose something radical like bamboo blinds. They are much easier to control to let in just the right amount of light.
Design an Outdoor Area
When the summer season arrives, having an outdoor dining or a picnic area can be very useful. You don’t have to hire interior designers to create a charming outdoor area. If you have spare tables and chairs in the house, you can easily do it yourself. If you are willing to spend money, you can buy chic outdoor lounging couches and swinging chairs to create a real haven right in your backyard.
Buy Round Beds
Make your bedroom look like a palace bedroom but giving up the square beds and buying round ones. You will need a spacious bedroom for this of course. It can definitely give an elegant and quirky aura to any bedroom in the house. You may be able to find round beds for a discount at old vintage stores. You can also buy new round beds, but you may have to spend some time shopping.
Convert the Space below Staircases to Bookshelves
Have a mini library at home by converting the space below the staircases into shelves that can hold books and little ornaments. This can be a cute, at-home DIY project, if you are good with tools. Otherwise, it won’t cost much to have a carpenter over to do the job. Add a desk and a lamp nearby, or attached to the shelves, for a library in your living room.
