Whether you’re moving into a new home, or you’ve decided it’s time to revamp your current one, it doesn’t have to be a hugely stressful and challenging task. There’s no pressure to buy the most expensive paint, wall art, and furniture to keep up with the Instagram appeal. There are plenty of other options available to you and who knows, you may even have fun along the way!
1. Focus on One Room at a Time
It can be an overwhelming task to redecorate your home if you think about doing it all at once. The trick here is to take on the challenge room by room, so you don’t get your head in a spin about what goes where and confuse the different themes. Pick a room and stick to it until it is complete, working your way around the house and before you know, it will all be finished! If you focus on revamping your home this way, chances are you’ll be saving a lot of time and money, and you won’t be kept awake at night by the chaos of unfinished rooms and mess everywhere! It’s also good to consider the numerous options available for renovating the rooms in your house, from Home Lighting Controls to upcycled furniture, you can really transform a room with just a few simple touches.
2. Consider Colour Schemes
Another important decision you’ll have to make when it comes to redecorating your home is the colour scheme you want to achieve. This can vary from room to room, but it’s no good picking a paint colour at random and getting to work; you’ll only be left disappointed and out of pocket. Take some time out first and have a big think about what colours you see in that room and visualise how you want it to look. Go to the local paint store and ask for palette sample so you can place it on the wall you’re thinking of painting, leave it there for a few days so you can see it in different lights and then decide. Browse the internet for redecoration ideas, apps like Pinterest and Instagram are full of inspiration for different styles and themes. You can save copies of the furniture and colours that stand out to you and put it all together in your room. Creativity is key here. It’s your home so you can decorate it as minimally or significantly as you wish.
3. Keeping to a Budget
Redecorating doesn’t have to be expensive. This is one of the factors that put people off getting out the paintbrush and dabbling in some décor. But it doesn’t have to be this way. There are several ways you can save money while redecorating, from getting free advice from designers to upcycling furniture instead of buying it brand new. That way, you can make it your own and have fun while doing it. Consider each feature of a room, from the lights to the wall art, and think of ways to lower the cost. We’re not saying you have to paint the wall art yourself (although if that’s your thing, go for it!), we mean you don’t have to spend lots of money to make a room look like new. Why not change it up and move some items around into new places? You’ll be surprised by what you can achieve!
