You do not have to be a design professional in order to bring a room within your home to a whole new level throughout the process of a makeover. There are plenty of shows on television today that will give you all kinds of little tips and tricks on the best ways to tweak your décor with a new end table here or a new paint color there. Once you start to feel the itch and you want to begin the makeover process within one of the rooms of your home or apartment, you will find that the process could be easier and much less expensive than you think.
After you make the choice of the room that will be undergoing the change, you need to take the time to find out if there is anything that you are able to get rid of. By knocking out clutter, you will have more space whenever you decide to add in some new furniture. A common mistake homeowners make is cramming too much furniture into one room. Open concepts and visual space are important in making a home livable and giving the illusion of more space.
Let’s start with the living room. If it is not a neutral color it needs to be painted. Often a soft brown or even yellow will brighten the room and make it feel larger than a darker color. Next, slowly put your old furniture or the new if you replaced everything, back in the room piece by piece. You want to arrange a cozy conversation area with your sofa and a pair of chairs. And of course you must not forget to add an end table or two.
Don’t be traditional. Opt for unique end tables that are almost sculptural. You can find wooden ones that look drums or ceramic ones that look like a stool in a Japanese garden. The possibilities are endless with end tables once you start looking around. And once you have chosen the ones you love you can have great fun topping them with a lamp, a favorite photo or even some greenery in a vase. The choice is yours
Then you can accent with bright graphic patterned pillows, a plush ottoman coffee table and a stunning piece of art on the wall. For some a piece of art is the inspiration for their whole re-do. Whatever gives you the creative bug whether it is a home show on TV or the colors of your favorite shirt, there is nothing, more exciting than bringing a room together. From start to finish it is a very rewarding process to transform your home into your favorite place. A place you will love returning to every day and relaxing.
So stick to your budget, use your imagination and keep your happiness and design style in mind as you create and you should end up with incredible results that you can be proud of and a home you will want to show off and enjoy as much as possible.
