Have you ever grown bored of how your home interior looks? If the answer to that question is yes, then it’s time to revamp your home interior. An aesthetically appealing home interior reduces your stress and anxiety. This is enough reason for you to update your home interiors into the aesthetics that you’ve always wanted. In this post, you’ll learn various tips so you can have an idea where to start with this project:
Get Rid of All the Clutter
You don’t want to start your revamp with a cluttered space. Throw away all things that no longer serve a purpose in your life and your house. They can take up space, and you could use that space when you have new additions. Moreover, it’s difficult to find what you’re looking for if everything is messy. A clutter-free space is also easier to clean. Ask for help in getting rid of all the house clutter.
In addition, if you don’t live alone, you should ask the people living inside your home about what needs disposing and what needs to stay. That way, you’ll avoid fights and misunderstandings. Consult with them first before you start getting rid of all the clutter.
Less Is More
Minimalism has become the new trend today wherein the concept is to reduce the possessions in your space. Not only is it good for the environment, but it’s good for your mental health, gives you ample space to move around, and you’ll have fewer distractions too. You can try selling the stuff that you don’t need. Moreover, living less can also be extended to your lifestyle—you can shift your focus to consuming healthy food and get rid of junk.
Add a Personal Touch to the Interior
Picture frames, personal artwork, and other elements that show your hobbies and interests are things that you should display in your space. They show who you are and provide warmth to the space. Without your personal touches, your home won’t feel like a home. Your guests would also not be comfortable if your interior is too formal.
Mind the Walls
There are many ways to decorate your wall—wall frames, paintings, changing the wall color, and adding accent wall panels. Designers would recommend not applying the same pattern or design to every wall in your house but alternating it to create a sense of style. A well-decorated wall makes the entire room look polished. When you decide to purchase wall decorations or change the paint color, stick to your theme. You can look for decoration ideas online that will stick with your theme.
Decorate Your Ceiling
When people enter a room, eyes typically dart toward the ceiling, which is usually painted white. Paint your ceiling a different color than your wall. Dark colors are perfect when you have low ceilings. Low ceilings, painted with dark colors, can make the entire room cozy. Moreover, if your ceiling has an architectural design on the ceiling, you can use paint to accentuate it. All you need is to choose the right colors.
Reposition Your Furniture
Repositioning furniture can add a fresh, new look to the space. Before moving things around, measure your furniture and the area where you intend to move them to ensure that they fit. The position should not interfere with foot traffic. Furthermore, suppose you believe in Feng Shui. In that case, you can arrange your furniture in a way that establishes harmony between you and the environment.
DIY vs. Interior Designer
Of course, you can hire an interior designer if you have allocated a large budget for it, but nothing beats you revamping the interior. It brings you immense pride and happiness when you know you revamped the interior yourself because, to be honest, interior design is not an easy job. You have to consider how things complement each other and how to find the symmetry of these things.
It’s always good to envision and put those visions first on paper before you actually demonstrate them. It gives you plenty of space to make mistakes and add changes. That way, you won’t have to regret anything once you proceed with the actual redesigning. What good redesigning needs is an instinct, an eye for art, and patience. Once you have these, then your space is as good as being designed by an interior designer.
Your current interiors might no longer invigorate you as much as they did before, but there are a lot of ways to change that. The tips on this post should help you get on the right track. Keep in mind, less is more, mind your walls and ceiling, don’t be afraid to add a personal touch, and when the going gets tough, you won’t be wrong to hire an interior designer (if your budget calls for it).
