Redecorating For Change: Simple Steps For A New Home Interior

By Abbie Osborne-Wilson

You’ve gotten bored with your decor – it’s a perennial and inevitable problem for every homeowner in the world. Even if you thought that your home’s look was perfect when you redecorated several years ago, you’re not likely to have the same opinion after five to ten years of looking at the exact same spaces. This, however, is a fairly easy problem to remedy. With some of the right touches, you can have all-new, interesting spaces without having to break the bank.

When you feel the boredom creeping in, you can already start rearranging the furniture. Immediately, you will see the difference this simple method can do. It’s like going to a new room but with the same furniture. You can even switch furnishings between rooms for a new look.

If your new arrangement for the furniture pieces doesn’t give the room that new life you wanted, then maybe it’s time to put in something new. Color is the next factor you should try changing in the room because it’s so visible, and any changes should have immediate visual impact on the overall look of the room. Slipcovers let you create that sort of change without too much of an investment; they’re an easy and very inexpensive way of quickly changing the colors in your room.

You could also change the the cushions and the upholstery on your furniture; it’s a little pricier but no less effective a method. Also, consider repainting the frames of furniture pieces like tables and chairs yourself. You’ll be surprised at how much a fresh coat of a new color can alter the appearance of the room.

Decorating with an area rug has been around since the early times for something. Area rugs can enhance a space’s mood and style. Opting for an area rug with a contrasting color with the room’s motif is an eye-catcher. An area rug in the same color scheme as the rest of the room enhances the room’s design and creates a smooth-flowing look around the living space. You don’t have to worry about spending because rugs come in different prices that you’ll surely find one that meets your budget.

Contrast is good especially if it gives an attractive outcome. Just like with motif, contrast can be added in smaller items and not just in the wall paint. Accents will do. Contrast is not about the colors alone. It can also be in textures.

Redecorating need not be a major production work. Simple things can make a difference. A touch of a new color, a polished furniture, an additional decor or accessory can instantly transform your home…without any trouble and major spending.

Keep up to date with Home Decorating trends and enhance your home with floral area rugs.
