It is generally believed that room makeover is an expensive task, but there are some hacks and tricks that can help you remodel your room in your budget. In today’s time, we are living in the time of “don’t move, simply improve” without breaking the bank. There are several ideas that you can use to give your room the required oomph and synergy, by staying well in your budget.
By simply changing the colour of the existing walls is one of the easiest ways to give the room a fresh look. A soft colour paint and an accent wall in intense colour ensure an instant facelift as it immediately establishes a visual pop. If you are ready to experiment go for wall murals on the accent wall. Other option that you can consider is using the wallpapers or going for the wall with a stencil. You can easily find the stencils in varied designs to choose from keeping your taste in mind. Some of the popular stencil designs to choose from are geometric, nature-inspired, mix and match and all over. The possibilities of adding oomph with retouching the walls are endless!
In today’s time, all the interior designers are going by one simple rule, “less is more.” Reassess what your room looks like and declutter the furniture, furnishings, and decorative that you feel are unnecessary cluttering the space. Don’t just throw away those pieces, put up a garage sale and make some extra money that can further be used to remodel your dream room. It is recommended to take either the Vastu or Feng Shui approach to set up the room to ensure a positive flow of energy. The mantra to success is to eliminate the business in the room which can easily be achieved by removing the largest pieces like rugs, window treatments and wallpapers to set the tone of the place. When replacing these things remember to choose calm and solid colours rather than patterns and prints.
Also, by simply changing the perspective of the room by moving the sofa to a different place or adding a corner table can give a newness to your room. Keep playing around with the furniture till you find an attractive arrangement that suits your needs and budget.
Experts say that lighting can actually make or break any home remodelling project. If you are looking for bedroom makeover go for accent light or soft yellow light as it helps in creating a romantic mood and also calms you down. For living room and drawing room go for a few ceiling fixtures or recessed lights or floor or table lamps as it assures overall illumination which is necessary for a comfortable level of brightness without glare. If you want to highlight some architectural features or objects or paintings you must add some accent lighting. The rule is to ensure that it is three times the general illumination level but should not be the focal point as it is meant to work without actually being seen. Be careful about the task lighting as its purpose is to add brightness to the busy rooms where most of the daily activities happen. To ensure visual clarity and avoid eyestrain the task lighting should be free of shadows and distracting glare. This can be achieved by using pendant lighting and vanity lights and specialty lighting.
If changing the sofa or reupholstering is not in your budget you can just throw some pillows in different sizes, shapes, and colours and it will instantly give the room an instant facelift. The trick is to pick the pieces that complement your curtains, walls, and floors. If you want to give the room a bold look, use the contrasting colours on the colour wheel while for the subtle look follow the colour style and theme of the existing décor.
One of the best ways to instantly add freshness and colour to your room décor is to bring some outdoor indoor. Add some flowers and plants to the room décor to instantly brighten up the room. Potted plants are a great addition to the empty corners, just ensure that the plant is tall enough to be seen over the furniture. You can even add small greens to the otherwise grab mantel space. If you are not confident about handling the real plants, you can even choose the artificial options to remodel your home.
