3 fresh decorating tips to update your home in your new style

Living room

If your house doesn’t make you feel ‘at home’ anymore, your interior décor might be a little out of synch with the person you have become.

You needn’t redecorate the whole place, though. Who has the time or the budget? Just a few well-chosen home décor touches can make all the difference. Try these tips to help you create a welcoming up-to-date space that speaks to you.

Consider Starting With Your Living Room

Maybe you don’t feel at home in any of the rooms in your house anymore. That said, embarking on a top-to-bottom renovation project is beyond most budgets. But you must start somewhere. In many homes, the living area is the feature room, as the center of the home, and also the largest space in square footage, so investing time and money in this room is likely to get you the most bang for your buck in terms of revolutionizing the space. A fresh, cozy effect needn’t break the bank. Creative lighting solutions, indoor plants, and a new rug or two can transform the space without draining your home renovation budget. 

Replace Your Sofa

When restrictions on money and time mean you can’t totally revamp your living space completely, start by choosing one or two areas that are central to your experience in the room and catch the eye when you walk in. When you enter a living room, the sofa is one of the first features that you see. As a relatively large piece of furniture, the sofa is often the focal point of the room, both visually and in your mind. The sofa is the place where you spend your leisure time, either appreciating a little peace and quiet by yourself or spending quality time with your family.

Replacing or reupholstering your sofa can completely transform a room, despite the fact that you’ve literally changed one thing. The sofa you select will reflect your new sense of what you want your home to say about you. If you’re feeling modern vibes, a leather sofa could be perfect. If you’d prefer a retro or vintage look, take a stroll to your nearest antique dealer or vintage treasure trove.

Not Hating A Room Doesn’t Mean You Like it

Once you’re done in the living room and are ready to move on to the next renovation project, it’s worth asking yourself which room is last on your list. Why? Because that’s the one you should do. For example, you might be thinking: I don’t really mind my bedroom – I hardly even notice it. It’s possible that you spend so much of your time in your bedroom that you no longer even notice the décor. If so, this is a good sign that redecorating your bedroom is the perfect next project.

Not only will a little spruce make a strong impression on you, but a small change here and there will help you look at the space differently. You may start to appreciate your home again when you’re forced to look at it with new eyes. Sometimes redecorating a space that we’ve grown completely accustomed to is all it takes.

If you haven’t redecorated your place in years, it’s easy to feel like you’ve outgrown the décor in your home. These tips will help you solve the problem gradually.
