It is so easy to feel “blah” about the decor in your home right now. The COVID-19 pandemic has left all of us cooped up and it’s no wonder you’re itching to try something new when you’re surrounded by the same four walls every day. From big renovations to simply rearranging your furniture, there are plenty of options to spruce up your space and turn chez vous into a more exciting place to be. Get started with your home makeover with the following ideas:
If you’re looking to change up your space, how about starting from the top? Ceiling tiles are an amazing way to add visual interest to a room without cluttering your walls with artwork and pictures. From plain and simple tiling to gorgeous baroque style patterns, your options are truly limitless. Unique ceiling tiles are something that begs to be shown off so your living room or entryway would be a great place to start.
New To You Furniture:
Do you have any furniture that has seen better days? Wobbly tables, stuffing coming out of couches, and stains tend to be main culprits! New furniture can be expensive so how about new to you furniture, instead? My apartment is completely furnished with secondhand pieces from Goodwill, Abbey Anne’s, and friends. Take some time to browse one of your local secondhand shops and see what you can find. You know what they say about one man’s trash, right?
Perhaps you want to go all out and do a complete renovation of your bathroom. We’re talking new tiles, fresh paint, and updated appliances – the works. There is no better time like the present! Especially considering that most of us are home all of the time now. How would you design your dream bathroom? Write it or sketch it out and enlist the best professionals to help.
If you are not interested in a full on bathroom overhaul, then try a bit of redecorating. Consider what theme you would like for the room and do some online shopping for all of the little trinkets that will make the space yours. Most bathrooms are small in comparison to the rest of the home so this is a project that can be knocked out quickly.
A lot of the artwork that I have at my place was made during crafting nights with my best friend and I smile whenever I see them and think of the fun we had. If your walls are looking bare, how about a Zoom paint night with your friends? Get inspired on Pinterest and decide what you would like to try your hand at. Art isn’t about right or wrong but having a good time with those you are creating with. No worries if your masterpiece didn’t turn out as you wanted – you can always hit up your local Goodwill. I am quite fond of their wall decor section, myself.
We started at the tippy top of the house with ceiling tiles and now we are going to examine what’s underneath your feet! If your carpets are matted down and stained, try replacing it with some new flooring. Vinyl, hardwood the choice is yours but I promise your place will look infinitely better once that old carpet is gone. Sleek flooring really opens a space as well as looking much cleaner than a tatty carpet. Warm up the room with plush rugs and runners for the final touch.
Use the tips above to create a new space for yourself in 2021. Let’s kiss 2020 goodbye – your old home decor included!
