The uncertainty of the ongoing lockdown has pushed so many of us to stay at home. However, many have optimized this at-home time to upgrade their homes in order to keep themselves occupied and lift their spirits, at the same time change the look and feel of their homes, now that they’re spending so much time there.
There’s nothing like a quick and easy home makeover, especially one that does not cost anything and brightens your living space doubly.
Change the focal point of a room
A few space and layout adjustments can breathe new life to a particular room. Changing the focal point of your room can completely change the way you look at it. For instance, try to change the arrangement of your sofas, coffee table or dining table. You can also move your artwork from one wall to another, or create a cozy, seating space near your window or balcony.
Change the colour palette or mix and match
The easiest way to change the look of your house is by changing its visual appeal. Try to club decor accessories like cushions, show pieces, rugs, books of the same colour tone together and make a cohesive section of the room. Or, you can mix and match contrasting colours to create visual interest.
Declutter and minimize
Another great revamp strategy is edit and declutter. The less you see, the more spacious your house starts appearing. Throw out things you no longer use or find an alternative way of using it. For example, old glasses or jars can be used to plant herbs, a quilt can turn into a bed headboard, or old wicker baskets can be repurposed. There is a lot of potential in things you already own, you just need to look around.
DIY and reinvent
This free time at home is also great for getting together with your family to do DIY projects. Paint a shelf or chair legs, deconstruct your bookcase, add a pop of colour to your nightstand or lampshade, the possibilities are endless. There is a lot of scope for reinventing a small corner, a room or the entire house, you just need to draw the right kind of creative inspiration.
The smallest of change can instantly brighten up your living space, and it can all be done at no cost, especially useful when you can’t step out during the COVID-19 lockdown.
