Your house is a space where you come to relax after a long day at work, take the time to spend with your family, and host dinner parties with your friends. When you move into a new home, there will always be elements which you’d like to change and improve- which is why getting down to the nitty gritty and starting a DIY project on your home is so exciting. It enables you to change small features in the home and make it your own perfect palace.
The first thing you can do to vamp up a tired looking home is to add a splash of colour on the walls. If you have wallpaper already on, you will want to steam it off to make room for the perfect pastel or a bold feature wall in your living space. You’ll be able to pick from a huge host of hues and shades, or even mix your own colour instead.
Chances are, you’ll end up having to change your flooring at some point in the lifespan of your home. There are several different types of flooring which will give you a different feel to the home. Firstly you could opt for carpet. Comfortable and insulated, it is a classic choice for living rooms and bedrooms. In the kitchen, you may prefer hardwood, vinyl or tile flooring, But before you lay any of these kinds of flooring, you will need to make sure your surface is completely flat and clean. A flat foundation and concrete polishing will make it much easier to lay down the perfect floor for your style. You could even leave the polished concrete uncovered to make your room feel big.
There are many different types of lighting you can invest in to create the atmosphere you want in your home. Energy-saving light bulbs will help you cut down your electrical bills, and you could opt for a statement chandelier if you have high ceilings to give an edge of glamour. If you want to keep it simple, LED spotlights don’t take up any space and can be placed in multiple spots around your home. And lastly, fairy lights. They aren’t just for the festive season, in fact, fairy lights are used by many houses to evoke a feeling of comfort and cosiness. Make your home feel like a paradise with some colour changing fairy lights in our main room.
Your home is your palace, and you want to create a personal space which shows off your unique personality with fun finishing touches which make your house a home. Soft furnishings are an excellent way to hide ugly furniture and add some creative flourish to your home. Some brightly colored cushions and a plush throw can turn a dull sofa into a lovely feature in your living room. Candles are a good way to create a cozy atmosphere in the evenings and also make your home smell amazing during the day when you have visitors.
