If you imagine all the colours of the rainbow, and then times that by a billion – that’s how many different colour palettes and shades you have to choose from! So go to decorating shops and take booklets and test strips; anything you can do to help imagine what it’ll look like on the wall. Another one of my favourite tips is to look online at rooms, for example, if you the idea of doing a green living room but have no idea what shade will be best, Google ‘green living rooms’ and look at the images. There will be tons of shades to look at and it gives you a realistic idea of how it will be.
Changing your floor space can make a whole lot of difference to a room, it can give the illusion the room is bigger or smaller and even brighter or darker!
If you prefer more of the royal style, then carpet works wonders. (I bought my carpet online at Online Carpet Sale.) Not only will it look beautiful, it feels lovely beneath your feet too!
If you’re looking for a more modern vibe, then wood is just the thing, and it doesn’t have to be real either! There are so many different types of laminate wood on the market you will be spoilt for choice.
So have a look at everything, and see what style you would like to give your room.
A lot of people forget about lighting, but it can make or break a house. Think about how your house is lit up at night, what kind of glow does it give off, are the lights too bright or not dark enough? Would a lamp look better at night in your home by giving the sense of warmth and cosiness, especially as winter is here?
These are all things to ask yourself before buying anything.
Why not buy a new piece of furniture? I change out my old, dark green faux suede sofa for a new, light chocolate cream coloured leather one! Just by changing a piece of furniture can give the impression of a whole makeover. So go shopping and see if anything catches your eye.
Last but not least, accessories. If you don’t feel like going too crazy, then a couple of accessories are just what you need. These can be anything that gives you the special touch you’re looking for. It could be just a plant, or a rug, or a few candles, you could even just get something really bright if your house is quite plain, or vice versa. It will give you a nice contrast without being too over the top.
Now you’ve seen some ideas, think about what you really want to change within your house, and then go for it! Not only will you be changing the scenery a little, but it’s also like your own personal therapy session. Sometimes change is really, really good!
