5 Tips to Give your Home that Wow Factor
By: Susie O’Dell
Decorating can be overwhelming and difficult. Many people want to redecorate their home but don’t know where to start. If you are one of those people, here are some tips that will help you get started.
1. Make a Plan
Make a plan of what you want to do in your home and when you want to do it. Planning will help you stay on track and avoid procrastination. This is especially important if you have a tight budget for your redecorating project.
2. Choose Colors Carefully
You don’t have to paint the entire room, but if you choose an accent wall or use some new accessories, this will give your room a whole new look without the hassle of repainting the entire room.
Try different colors and see which ones look best with your furniture, appliances, and floors before deciding on what color to use for your entire room.
You may be surprised at how much a small change can make a big difference in the overall appearance of your home.
3. Change One Thing at a Time
When decorating, changing too many things at once can cause confusion about what is old and what is new. This can make it difficult to get a cohesive look throughout your home. Instead, change one thing at a time.
For example, if you are redecorating your living room, choose one thing to change in the room first. Then move on to the next thing. If you are adding new accessories or changing out accessories, you may want to replace them all at once so that they match and have a consistent look throughout the room.
4. Choose Quality Over Quantity
It is better to choose one quality item over two inexpensive items that don’t look as good as the quality item would have looked in your home.
Choose items that will last and will hold up over time instead of items that you will have to replace again in a few months or years when they break or fall apart.
5. Create Moods
Different rooms should have different moods based on what purpose they serve in your home and how you use them on a regular basis.
A dining room should be calm and peaceful with muted colors and soft lighting while an office should be bright and energizing with sharp colors and bright lighting to keep you alert during long hours of work.
Decorating each room for its intended purpose will help you get the most out of your home.
There are many ways to redecorate your home, but these tips will help you get started and make it easier for you to get the look that you want.
