Budget is always the overriding factor when you’re looking to shake up your home.
In a perfect world, we would have an unlimited budget so we could completely change the house from top to bottom. Of course, we’ve all got to work within our means. So, when it comes to changing up your home so that it gives out a different feel, but you can only do one room at a time, what are the best rooms, to begin with?
The Dining Room
And if you’re lucky enough to have a dining room. This is going to be one of the spaces that have the biggest impact, not just on the home, but on every guest that comes for a dinner party. So, the best way to change this up is to go for the centerpieces. The dining room table is the first place to start, but consider small elements to show off the tone of the room, especially when you have people round for dinner. A chandelier is very simple, but effective, talking piece, but also use different curtains and drapes, to add a different sense of color.
The kitchen can be a considerable task in terms of renovating, so if you have the finances, you could spring for a renovation company to do the job. The kitchen is such a vast space, that remodeling your kitchen is one of the best options. But, for those who don’t have the money, giving it a deep clean, adding lighting, or just freshening the paint will help for the time being.
The Living Room
Because the living room can fulfil many different functions, it is ripe for redecorating. You can do almost anything you want with it, but much like the kitchen, the focal points are the best place to start. Your furniture is going to be the big draw, so consider rearranging your furniture if you can’t afford to purchase new sofas. Handy additions on top of that include the typical changes in lighting, but also, go for rugs that add a swathe of color but also consider art and accessories, like paintings, to provide a suitable counterpoint to your focal point.
People make judgements on the owner depending on their bathroom. A very contemporary option is to turn your bathroom into something that resembles a spa. However, it doesn’t have to be this sophisticated, you can make little changes to add a sense of space, especially if there’s not much of it! Some simple ideas to make the room appear larger is to add mirrors so the light can reflect back into the room. But color is the biggest change if you want to add space and vibrancy. If you have carpets, get rid of them, and go for lighter colored tiles to add more brightness.
It can be done with a limited budget, but it’s always best to save up as much as you can so you can make a considerable change to your house. If you’re looking to get the ball rolling, start off by changing one of these rooms, and it will completely reinvigorate your house.
