How to beautify your home
It’s been a while since you’ve spruced up your home, and it’s time to give it a makeover, but you don’t want to throw away the old furniture, or you don’t have enough budget.
Based on the budget and the importance of the modernization intervention, you can opt to purchase new furnishing accessories, decorative elements, and art or put your hands to good use to save money. We prefer the latter.
The first things to do are:
- Clean and organize the rooms to have a clear view of the spaces available and occupied by furniture and décor pieces already present.
- Evaluate which areas of the house you want to facelift and set your spending budget
- Modify the lighting elements and the illuminated areas to change the usual vision of the home environment.
- Choose plants for the different environments.
- Change the arrangement of the furniture or try to make details with DIY
- Eliminate unnecessary things
- Enjoy your brand-spanking-new home
Spending budget and environments to be embellished
If the budget is limited, do-it-yourself and creative recycling comes in handy. DIY will allow you to embellish the house with a world of ideas and compositions at a low cost. First, evaluate which areas of the house you want to renovate and set your spending budget.
You must understand how much of the budget you want to allocate to each area, prioritizing the areas that have the greatest impact on your daily life.
Beautify the walls
The walls are the first characterizing element of the house. If you have focused on repainting them within the budget, you can totally change the face of the rooms by choosing new colors or aiming at the appeal of wallpapers.
You can also embellish the walls of the house with objects, decorations, and compositions. You can make your own wallpaper or create compositions with paintings or photos if you want originality and cost savings.
If you have beautiful plates lying around, you can use them to fill and embellish the walls of the house’s different rooms. Then again, you can use mirrors strategically placed to increase light and spatiality and create magical and beguiling reflections. Alternatively, you can use stickers or wall stickers to decorate the walls with particular subjects or original phrases.
Beautify your home with curtains
Another element that characterizes the rooms is certainly the curtains on balconies and windows. There is an infinite number of proposals that can satisfy different budget needs. You can make DIY curtains from sheets, beads, or yarn. You can introduce wooden curtain rods with leather straps or put that idle dish towel to good use—it must be large and pretty!
Beautify your home with lighting
By simply changing the orientation of the light points, lamps, spotlights towards new decorations, a new format can be given to the house’s rooms. If your budget has been earmarked for lighting beautification, you can decide to replace lamps and chandeliers.
Change the lamps with new decorative LED versions and with different light intensities. The whole environment near the lighting will take on a new life and character. You may also want to think of creating new DIY chandeliers to save money or maintaining style and taste.
Beautify your home with plants
What can make a home more alive and safe if not the presence of green plants? Choosing the right plant or composition of flowers for the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, or living room allows you to give an easily perceptible touch of novelty while giving a sense of well-being.
Beautify your home with furniture and accessories
If the need or desire to change furniture is strong, but the budget is not strong, do not lose heart. Building furniture yourself is not that difficult.
Even beginners and inexperienced craftsmen can quickly create something beautiful and unique from already finished items such as pallets, old wine boxes, ropes, sticks, or (drift) wood.
Beautify your home by eliminating unnecessary things
Over time we accumulate more and more objects and furnishing elements at home, both because we buy impulse objects, receive gifts, or get caught up in the fast-changing fashion trends. Still, then we punctually create chaos and move away from the style that characterizes every environment. And here is one of the simplest pieces of advice that is difficult to apply due to our desire to keep objects: eliminate clutter.
