When you want to redecorate your home, it doesn’t have to be a long, drawn-out task. It doesn’t have to be difficult at all. The key thing to do is plan ahead and ensure you know just how to redecorate in the best way to maximize your time and budget. If you can do this, your home will look fantastic, and you will love how it feels to live there, whether you intend to change just a few small items or re-install an entire room (or perhaps even add a new one through an extension). Read on for some valuable tips for redecorating your home that will make the process a much simpler one to go through.
Start From The Floor
If you start looking at everything all at once, your home decoration can certainly be daunting, and you might not even want to make a start. Yet if you take things piece by piece, it becomes a much easier task to deal with, and you can use your money in the most cost-effective way too, only spending what you need to for the part of the project you are working on.
This is why it’s best to start with your floor and get that right before working upwards and fixing the walls and then the ceiling, and after that, it’s time to look at furnishings. Work on every room in this order, and you’ll find that you can keep track of everything and work productively.
Work With The Space You Have
When it comes to how you want your home to look, the space you have to play with will factor heavily into your plans. This is particularly important when you are thinking of the colors you might want to use and the specific pieces of furniture that will look good. A smaller room will need to be kept bright and airy, with smaller pieces of furniture that don’t take up too much space. Conversely, a larger room can be a darker color with more oversized furniture, and this will help make the room feel more comfortable and less clinical, which is a danger with big spaces.
Although you might fall in love with a small coffee table or a deep green wall covering, will it work in the space you have available? You are sure to find something else you love just as much, so keep your room’s size in mind at all times to get the right balance.
Don’t Forget The Little Things
When you’re redecorating your home, it’s the big things that will come to mind first. You’ll think of the flooring, the color, the large pieces of furniture, and so on. But don’t forget the more minor things too, as when these are considered and changed to match the new style of the room, it can turn a good look into a great one.
Things to think about that you can so easily forget include the curtain poles and rails, the light switches, and the skirting boards. By changing your curtain poles from wood to metal, installing light switches from the Clipsal Saturn Zen range, and painting the skirting boards a complimentary colour to the walls and floor, you will finish the room flawlessly.
