Creating a Fresh and Stylish Home

Do you want to give your home a new look? Perhaps you’ve grown tired of seeing the same interior every day for years; perhaps you’ve gone through a difficult period in life, and you want a fresh start, or maybe your style has simply changed. Whatever the reason, giving your house a fresh look doesn’t have to be complicated. Here are some simple tips that will help when freshening up your home.

Refresh your living room

To give your living room a fresh new look, start by giving it a new color. You don’t have to paint your walls to do this; you can hang some smart wallpaper instead. Putting down some colorful new rugs on the floor is also a quick way to give a room a different look.

Buy a new sofa, likewise some chairs, and a coffee table. If you don’t want to spend money on new furniture, no worries! Just buying some pieces of second-hand furniture in good condition and then rearranging your living room setup will make a big difference.

You could also decorate your living room with some different art prints or paintings. Why not frame some photographs of loved ones and put them on the walls? Put out a few decorative glass vases and add some brightly colored flowers to give your living room a homey look.

Another way to brighten up your living room is by installing new lighting. Add new light fixtures and use brighter bulbs. Install new curtains and window shades, or even some shutters that will allow you greater control over the light coming into the room.

Give your kitchen a new look

Painting your kitchen’s ceiling and walls a new color is a great way to give your kitchen a new face; it won’t cost a lot of money. Besides painting your walls and ceiling, redo your cabinets. Cabinet resurfacing and repainting is a lot cheaper than buying new ones.

If you have old appliances that are reaching the end of their lives it is likely they are heavy on energy use so it would be worth considering replacing them with models that are more energy efficient. If funds allow, a modern refrigerator, freezer, and dishwasher would considerably reduce your electricity bills.

Finally, treat yourself to some new cutlery. Buy something unlike what you have presently. Stainless steel cutlery is best, and is available with ceramic, china, porcelain, or glass handles. The handle color should match your kitchen’s new theme.

The bedroom

To redecorate your bedroom, paint your walls and ceiling or apply new wallpaper. Refurbish or replace old furniture with new or second-hand items.

Buy some new bedding that matches your decorative theme. Replacing a mattress after a few years’ use is always worthwhile because you will sleep much more soundly and wake up feeling more refreshed. New night tables and reading lamps will also enhance the room’s appearance.

New curtains and window shades are a major element and they boost an interior design. Repositioning your bed so that you’re facing a different window when lying down can make it feel as if you’re in a new room. Have a radio in the room and play relaxing music around bedtime.

Give your bathroom a makeover

Doing a bathroom renovation doesn’t have to be costly, either. Start by changing the color theme. Get a new shower curtain and new towels. If possible, paint your walls and ceiling as well. You could also put down some new flooring which would greatly improve the overall look.

Little things go a long way in a small bathroom. Simply installing a new sleek faucet will make a big difference, as will installing a new mirror. Give your bathroom a thorough clean and de-clutter as much as you can.

Growing live plants in your bathroom is another way to give it a new look. It will not only calm you while bathing, it is also said to have health benefits. Some plants flourish in the moist and humid environment of a bathroom. Plants that flourish in bathrooms include lucky bamboo, spider plant, and aloe vera. Lucky bamboo doesn’t even require soil; just place it in water.

Remodeling your living spaces doesn’t have to be expensive. Nor does it have to be nerve-racking or complicated. By applying the above tips, you’ll soon feel you’re in an entirely new home.
