You’ve been living in the same house for a very long time and you are just dying to make a change, right? You have probably already dealt with major improvements, like hardwood floors, attic, garage, front and back yard. These are all things that needed to be done, yet you still feel like making some changes.
No need to call an architect or a decorator, we are here to help. You can make some changes yourself, in order to make your home more welcoming and better looking. Since we are not talking about major changes, you can breathe again, there’s really no need to hire a construction crew. The only thing you need is a little bit of imagination and some spare time.
1.The first thing you could do to improve the aspect of your home is to change some accessories and small decorative objects. If your living room is so dull that it has no decorative objects, no paintings, no vase and no pillows, then you have discovered your problem. You definitely need to bring some in. If you are afraid the room will look too crowded, then take it slow and try introducing one thing at a time, until the room seems to be complete. For instance, your safest bet would be with a couple of pillows on the living room couch. This is the perfect way to bring your room together, but you can also go for some contrasting effects. For instance, if you living room is monochromatic and the furniture is also dull and doesn’t help brighten it up at all, you could try buying some colorful pillows and see how well they work with the rest of the room.
2.Clean up the mess and empty out old items, boxes cloth and dust your darkest corners. Yes.. this means you might find some pests that are not welcome in the house, but you can follow good advice on how to eliminate those pests. Cleaning up will help give you home a large improvement and changes in mood.
3. You should keep in mind that colorful does not mean that the poor pillows need to have all the colors of the rainbow on them. They just need to be more cheerful than the rest of the room, that’s it. If your living room walls are painted white and your furniture is all black or some other dark color, you might want to try getting some pillows that have shades of yellow or red. Even pink might work. But if you are afraid of seeming too girly, yellow is your safest bet. You could even make the pillow cases yourself. That’s really not hard to do, and this way you can really put your imagination to the test. You can even try making the pillow cases even more cheerful by writing something on them. Not whole novels, just a couple of meaningful words for you.
4. You can do the same thing with curtains or other decorative objects. Just make sure not to overdo it. Moderation is the key in this case. Otherwise, you living room will end up looking too crowded or will even give people the feeling that it’s messy.
