Every person strives to maintain a decent and comfortable home. You buy home decors, new furniture, and many other things that can give a unique look to our cherished homes. However, some houses look like the same old house you have known since you were born. Other houses look plain and too simple.
Retouching and revamping your house to look extra special may sound overwhelming for some people, but there are many simple steps you can take to make it possible. With proper planning, the right amount of money, and creativity, anything is possible for your lovely home.
For those who have longed to change the look of their homes, here are some of the simple tips to achieve the house you wanted to be.
Blending the Old and New
Yanic Simard, a contributor of Houzz, emphasizes that interior design of homes should not be entirely focused on eliminating the old and changing it with the new. Especially for houses with the vintage charm, the time-earned character of the structure may be maintained while you try to make it look fresh and current. Simard simply advises homeowners to preserve the past, notwithstanding great efforts to modernize the home.
If your home has well-maintained stained glass windows, you do not need to remove them as they give your house a distinctive look. You may just simply paint the walls in white to highlight the beauty of the windows.
Homeowners may also add interesting vintage decors in their homes to add a different vibe. You may also consider covering the walls with pretty wallpapers with a classic look while placing modern-looking art pieces in your living room.
Hiding Imperfections, Highlighting Details
The usual problem of older houses is when the color of the walls and ceilings starts to look faded. It may also be that the interiors and exteriors of the house look old with the passage of time.
Simard recommends painting the walls, trim, and ceiling with one color. The trim, however, should have a slightly higher gloss to subtly call attention to it. A trim work in good condition only requires you to paint a neutral contrasting shade.
Employing bolder shades like dark gray on the doors can make them look even more classy. For old homes built in a different era, they mostly have beautiful moldings, trim, and door details. To preserve and highlight these wonderful details of your home, a coat of paint is sufficient to do the magic.
Before you repaint your home, you should do proper research and choose the right colors that fit your house. Otherwise, you may regret repainting your home. If you choose to retain the same colors, a new coat of paint is enough to make your walls and ceiling look fresher.
Rearranging Existing Items, Furniture
One of the good house-revamp tips you can follow is to move around existing items and furniture to give a new look to your house. It does not require heavy work and expense.
With the help of the household members, you can switch different objects in different places at home. It is better to plan it out first before you execute it to save more time and effort.
By rearranging household furniture and other items, you may gain additional space you need. To avoid becoming stressed in the process of rearranging house items and furniture, you should make the changes one room at a time.
Placing Interesting Objects at Home
If you really lack the time to clean your room, repaint the walls, and rearrange furniture, you may revamp the confines of your home by simply adding and highlighting unique items that can give your home a better look.
Placing nautical decors bring a fun vibe inside your home. You may also make your home nature-friendly with a small cactus plant or real flowers inside a transparent vase. A sparkling chandelier can also give your home a luxurious look.
Throwing Away Useless Stuff
When your home looks too cluttered, there is one definite solution: eliminate all the unnecessary things. While keeping objects with sentimental value makes sense, some homeowners have the tendency to keep even useless things that reduce space at home.
You must assess which objects and items you may let go because they serve no use or they consume a significant amount of space without any purpose. If they remain useful but you need to make a new purchase, you may give the used items to charity or friends who may make good use of them.
