With 4 quick ways to improve your home, you can better your space in no time.
We share some tips that will help you renovate your home without spending too much. Even if you’re moving into a putra heights brand new terrace house or moving across town to a brand new apartment, renovations can improve the look.
Focus on three colors that you love and use them in six shades, two for each color. Better if they have the same color temperature, that is, hot, cold or neutral. Call a good painter if you don’t like DIY. Darker rooms to the north and lighter rooms to the south (yes, the opposite of what is usually done) to bring in the best lighting. For time and budget reasons, do not paint the wooden elements, just focus on walls and ceilings.
Take the most beautiful bowls you have, in addition to the books (if they are ugly, cover them with a paper gift), add some black and white photos mounted on Plexiglas and complete with groups of monochrome vases. Alternate objects and books and avoid symmetries: you will see that your bookstore will give you great satisfaction.
An old piece of furniture can be given new life with new paint or a change of handles. A good alternative is to use chalk paint, a very easy to apply chalk paint, suitable for the inexperienced. Another option is to change the varnish of a piece for an aged patina to achieve a vintage effect that can turn an old piece of furniture into one with a lot of waves.
What to take into account to get down to work? First, make sure the part is clean. Then, if necessary, sand the surface to smooth it out, remove the dust, and allow the paint to adhere. If chalk paint is used, it can be painted directly with the chosen color and then protected with a wax or lacquer, depending on the use that is going to be given to the furniture.
Renovating a boys’ room can be very simple and inexpensive at the same time. The vinyls of the most varied sizes and designs can be placed very easily on the wall and will provide a very fun design touch. You can opt for small details, stamping a wall with polka dots, arrows or stars. Or, choose a mural that gives prominence to a specific corner of the room. Vinyl rugs with children’s designs and games are an ideal alternative to create a beautiful environment while providing a possibility of play and enjoyment. In addition, they are easily removable. An excellent alternative.
