Top Five Makeover Ideas For Your Home

posted by Chris Valentine

Are you looking for new interior ideas for your home? If so then read on for our top five picks that will give rooms in your home a new lease of life. The very term ‘makeover’ conjures up ideas of mass redecoration and upheaval, but the reality is that you can give your home a new look and feel, without undergoing major change. No matter what your budget may be, there are plenty of ways in which you can change the appearance of your home, and here are some tips on doing exactly that. 

Focus on The Basics

First we have to stress the importance of focusing on the basic details in your home, in order to give it a brand new look. Items such as plug sockets and light switches can easily be replaced, doors can be painted, so too can skirting boards and all of this will drastically change the look and feel of the rooms in the home. Additionally for those with a tight budget, spending time on deep cleaning the home and rearranging the furniture will contribute greatly to changing your home’s appearance. 

Reimagine Bare Walls

When decorating a space most people will focus on a smart color scheme, furnishings which look and feel great and some additional touches to bring it all together. Many of us however are guilty of not utilizing the space which we have, and leaving some walls bare. This however should be considered as a real opportunity, a blank canvas to which we can bring some style to the home. Hanging mirrors and artwork will significantly alter the appearance of each space in your house. 

Upgrade The Lighting 

The power of lighting really shouldn’t be underestimated, getting it right can bring a sense of space to a small area, create moods in the rooms of the home and highlight certain details to bring stylish features front and center. Many of us settle on basic lighting which serves a purpose, but there is much more to it than that. Light fittings for example, can themselves bring an extra layer of style to the room. Additionally changing the focal point of illumination using lamps and dimmers serves to drastically change the ambience depending on what you are doing. 

Introducing Natural Freshness

Don’t be afraid to bring the outdoors in when it comes to giving your home a new look. Introducing brightly colored plants, freshly cut flowers or even natural materials to the home can completely change its appearance. Twigs, branches, leaves, linens, as well as living, breathing plants, work perfectly in each room in the home. This could be a herb garden in the kitchen or bathroom details made with driftwood, they all contribute to give your home the new look which you are after. 

Revolutionize Your Outdoors Living 

It is completely understandable why so many people would prefer to spend money on the interior of their home first, but at some point a little investment outside could do the world of good. Investing in a small area of your garden or yard to create a living area could be just what you need to really unlock that space. High quality outdoor furniture and a small pagoda under which to enjoy some al fresco dining will elevate the space outdoors and give you somewhere beyond the home where you can relax and take in some fresh air. 

Makeovers can be grand, expensive and drastic, but they don’t always have to be, as these examples prove.
