Does your home really need a makeover? Do not worry about your budget at the moment. Upgrading your house does not have to cost an arm and a leg; in fact, if you have the right tools and the right ideas, you can reconfigure your home for yourself. Why hire expensive contractors when you can have your way and save money at the same time? Here is a piece by piece guide to design your home DIY way.
First, decide if you need to change your furniture. Doing it is a dramatic change, so you will probably have to adjust the rest of your decor around it. If you keep your furniture, create a new look by buying a new upholstery or a nice cover. Carry the pattern throughout the room by repeating it on your carpets, rugs, curtains and other fabrics.
Kitchen design is based on the combination of style and functionality. Start by putting your key items in place: the sink, the refrigerator and the stove. Make sure they are all easily accessible from each other. After that, you can simply change your colors or update your lighting. The work lighting and hanging lamps give the room a modern and modern touch.
Over the years, bathrooms have evolved from basic public services to luxurious places for rest and relaxation. The best way to design your bathroom is to add luxury items, such as dramatic lights, rich tiles or a new sink. Look into new building materials – most of them are extremely durable and specially designed for wet bathroom environments.
Your personal style should be your guide when it comes to designing your room. The easiest way to do this is to use your favorite color as the dominant hue. If it's a much stronger shade, consider painting two walls with it and using a lighter and softer color for the other two. Fill a shelf (or an entire wall if you are able to) with your favorite pictures, art objects, souvenirs, everything you are doing.
Often your first decision will be what to do with your foundation. Do you want a home theater, library or game room? Fill it with things that contribute to the purpose of the piece. It is also useful to have a theme for easy decoration. Be sure to leave some ventilation because the basements tend to be narrower and moist.
