Ever look around you at home and think to yourself, “I need to redecorate this room,”? It happens. We all feel the desire to make some sort of change to our surroundings from time to time, and usually we do that by redecorating. If you’re in the mood to redecorate a room in your house or even several rooms in your house, you might want to consider doing it on a budget. The reason for this is that putting too much money into a room can cause you to over improve and not see a return on your investment when you sell. Additionally, you don’t want to spend too much on trendy changes you’ll want to change again in a year or so.
It sounds simple because it is simple. A coat of paint is the best way to redecorate any room in your house. In fact, it’s so simple and so effective it might be all you need to do to change the entire look and feel of any room. Whether it’s your bedroom, bathroom or living room, a fresh coat of paint in a color different from what you already have can make a huge difference; and it’s cost-effective, too.
New Window Coverings
Here’s something you might or might not know; the look of your window can make or break your rooms. For example, old curtains in boring design and color aren’t interesting. However, when you make the decision to move your curtain rod as close to the ceiling as you can and hang long curtains in a lush fabric or bold design, you will not only improve the look of your room, you’ll make it look larger than it is.
Too many knick-knacks and odds and ends can make a room look cluttered and cramped. It’s time to get rid of them. Instead of dozens of frames on your tables commemorating your past vacations, choose to display your favorite photos on canvas prints on the wall. It’s space-saving and much more appealing.
