Making a transition from drab to fab with a few simple changes is easy and great fun. Getting in some stunning new lamp shades, and being creative in choosing affordable home decors and furniture, can really lift your spirits, and give your home an exciting new ambiance. Like millions of other people you will have been inspired by work on the BBC home make over series, and if you would like to do it yourself, it does not mean you have to remodel your entire home or get in an interior designer. You also do not have to spend a fortune, you just need a few tips to send you in the right direction.
TIP ONE: COLOR
Your home should reflect your personality, and radiate the colors you love. In the BBC series ‘Design Rules’, the popular interior home designer, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, urges everyone to ‘be brave’ in their choices of wall color paint as home designing and colors are intertwined in such a way that the latter can certainly affect the total impact of the house. Many people just stick to magnolia, because it is a safe bet; but if you actually look at a paint color chart in the store, and see the vast spectrum of lovely colors on offer, you will probably be inspired to go for something a bit more racy. So remember to ask for one!
There is nothing quite like eye-catching lamp shades, and what could be easier than changing your old ones? Fantastic lamp shades are often the central focal point of the room, and different lighting options, such as dimmer switches can set the mood. The number of unique designs is stupendous, so put this important feature on your do-to list.
TIP THREE: CHOOSING FURNITURE
Updating your home with attractive comfortable modern furniture on a budget is not very difficult, simply because there is so much competition. One important aspect to keep in mind is to choose pieces that will not over crowd the room, and leave enough free space. Another point to consider is comfort, so be sure to buy items that you can relax on.
So make plans to bring your home to life and give it an awesome new feel by doing something different. By choosing wonderful lamp shades, home decors and furniture, you have made yourself an amateur interior designer! There is nothing better than a change in scenery and living space, and giving your home a brilliant new look is something that your entire family can enjoy.
