A fresh start often gets us looking at things from a new perspective. This might mean reassessing your home’s interior design, and deciding you want to make some upgrades. New surroundings call for new mindsets after all, right? But a full-blown home makeover is not in the stars (or the budget) for most people. And, as it turns out, even minor adjustments can have you singing a new tune.
Here are a few minor tweaks you can make to your furniture and interior design to get your home feeling like-new.
Change the Position of Your Sofa
The living room is the heart of the home. Even some minor rearrangements to this area, such as changing the direction of the sofa and armchairs, can make a huge difference. Try creating a more intimate conversation area by rearranging these accordingly around your coffee table. You’ll be amazed how changing the way your couch faces can change the entire vibe of the room.
New Throws & Pillows
Over time, throw pillows get beaten, worn, and lose their luster. Invest in some new accent pillows to brighten up the place, and maybe some new throw blankets to toss over the armchairs as well. These items are inexpensive and can make a big difference in the grand scheme of things.
We love curtains for the privacy they give us, but forget they should be stylish as well as practical. Furthermore, we forget to care for them the way we do other items in the home. Touch up the place by purchasing new curtains in new shades. When paired with new throw pillows and cushions, they can launch your home into a whole new color theme.
Consider painting one of your walls a different color from the rest. This will give an otherwise plain room a pop of color, and draw your guests’ eyes to that wall. This makes it a perfect place to put captivating artwork, family photos, or mirrors. Painting an accent wall can take just a day or two, and have a lasting emotional affect.
Even accent furniture or accessories can go a long way toward giving your home a much-needed refresh. In 2019, take risks with, and spruce up, your interior design.
