Have you ever come home from work
one evening and looked around your abode, only to feel that there is something
decidedly missing in terms of style or appearance? We’ve all been there, and
the resulting, all-consuming, wish to redecorate can be rather invigorating an
experience as all manner of dreams, ideas and wants fly around your head.
Sometimes though coming up with ideas can be rather difficult, so if you’re
wanting to redecorate your home, but aren’t particularly sure on which
direction to take, here are some great ideas to get your creative juices flowing!
One of the best, and indeed
cheapest, ways of outfitting your home in a more pleasing manner is the usage
of second hand furniture. Although large charity shops and second hand stores
will indeed have a rather large number of rather choice items, however there
are often some amazing, one-of-a-kind pieces that you can take home. Also, you
can always sand, re-varnish and re-upholster any tired looking furnishings,
making them look brand new!
If your spare room is in need of a
makeover, there’s no better piece of furniture to get than a sumptuous day bed, which can hugely improve the amount of floor space in a room, and many have pull-out
sections hidden beneath the main bed section, ready for when you have guests
come to stay. A tip here is to get bedroom furniture from the internet at sites
such as Bedstar; they’re often far, far cheaper here than in showrooms, plus
you can get them delivered.
High-Gloss White Paint
Dark paints can make a room look
dingy, so if you want to make your chosen room more breezy and larger-looking,
high-gloss white paint is the covering you should prescribe to. Light will
bounce around your room and you’ll likely feel a lot happier as a result!
Far better than boring old
curtains, shutter shades or Venetian blinds, Roman shades are understated, effective and very
stylish right now. The best aspect of Roman blinds is that, due to being
crafted out of fabric, you can pick and choose from all manner of amazing,
colourful and patterned designs, making these a great choice for any room in
Often, if a room is grinding on
you or if you’re getting a rather awful feeling every time you approach your
home after a day out and about, a door is the culprit. Fresh new doors really
freshen up a home, and if you combine second-hand purchases with a little elbow
grease, you can get some wonderful doors for a lovely price.
