The year 2020 has not been a kind year to many of us, but after spending most of our time at home, it got us thinking what should we do next to create a more positive and enjoyable home. After all, trends change with time and people need to update their home in order to guarantee that it moves with the times and doesn’t become dull and boring.
Are looking for ways to improve your home? If so, here are some suggestions you won’t want to miss.
Add a Splash of Colour
It has become extremely popular to change the colour or pattern of just one wall in particular in a bedroom or living room. By creating a feature wall using a splash of vibrant colour, it will re-energise the room! It can be any colour as long as it goes well with your furniture. Bright colours often relate to happiness and they instantly cheer people up. Why not consider adding a red luxury chair in the corner of the room too?
Are you sick of your plain white wall, but too lazy to paint it as suggested above? Then one simple way to completely change the entire appearance and feel of a room is to add museum-quality wall art to the wall! It can be paintings, photographs, and illustrations and Fine Art America has it all!
Add sentimental items and pictures that remind you of your childhood. How about baby first shoes, or put out family photos in collage, certificates or even hang up your first tennis racket!
If you are feeling artistic enough, why not create some art yourself? Due to Covid-19, instead of attending art class, you can try to find online workshops or watch YouTube videos to learn the basics if you are not an expert. Otherwise, you can try paint by numbers using kits or customise with your own photo, which I have recently reviewed! Something more personal will more character and sentimental value. Find frames at local charity shops, painting them to match if you like!
Mirrors are good for capturing and reflecting light and can be a cost-effective alternative to works of art. They can help light up the room more uniformly which helps in eliminating shadows. Big mirrors can be suitable for spacious walls. If your room is small, you might want to invest in a narrow mirror which helps in tricking the eyes that the walls are longer than they are. You can tone up the mirror by adding some backlight.
With the current situation in my mind, upcycling is the new way to go! Get creative by refurbishing with used fabrics. Choose your favourite designs to spruce up your wall. Instead of painting the wall, I have painted my bathroom furniture to re-energise the room! Simply by upcycling the furniture, it has made the room look much more modern and stylish!
Creating a space that’s just for you and your family isn’t just about the physical, but it’s about the emotional as well. Hopefully, the ideas above will help you or even inspire you to go about it.
