Ten tips to renovate your home
The layout and design of the interior spaces are of the utmost importance, as they are places in which we spend the majority of our time. Therefore, having a comfortable space that makes us feel good, particularly at home, can increase our productivity, improve character, encouragement and peace and even encourage us to meet our goals.
Our home is the most important place, so we are sharing ten tips to renew your home with the best possible style.
1. Move or change something
A good idea to start is to move your furniture place, in this way, you can not only have new perspectives of space, but also, you can see more clearly which are still useful and which need to change to unify the same concept. Remember that the needs of spaces are constantly changing and this may be the time replace some furniture, for a more functional one that goes to the forefront.
2. Change color
It is not necessary to paint the whole house again, there are details of color and textures that can modify the perceptions of the spaces. You can try an oil blue wall and contrast with furniture in white, camel or gray tones to give a combination of strong and neutral tones. If you do not want to paint the walls, you can use tapestries or natural stones in them, or opt for accessories that give a touch, for example, new cushions, decorative paintings, lamps, trays can help unify the palette and range of colors of your house.
3. Add new lighting
Light is a decisive element in this composition because it can attenuate some colors and sectors, as well as enhance others. A spot light revalues an area. In addition, you can play with indirect lights on the floor and bookshelves, in this way you can highlight a small piece of art or make a place colder or warmer. One option that we love is candles, they provide a feeling of comfort when turning them on, they are ideal to warm a formal dinner, avoid odors and give a warm home feeling to any area of your home.
4. Accessories are important
Sometimes we forget that less is more and we confuse the concept of “style” with “tendency” and end up buying everything. The key to choosing the right accessories is to identify what identity you like and go more with your home, for example you can decorate style: minimalist, ecological, industrial, pop art, or mix two styles if you wish. Once you have identified it will be much easier to choose accessories, and even furniture, that give that special touch to any room. When you go to buy them, also think about combining them with some main elements that you already have at home, for example the table runner, with the colors of the room, contrast rugs with curtains, and so on.
5. Tone over tones
If you want to create a greater visual impact, choose the same color for your furniture and walls. In addition to giving more depth and height you can paint the moldings and why not, give life to the ceiling. Another tendency of tone on tone, is to include furniture that goes in the same palette, for example if your wall is gray, a furniture in that tonality can be interesting.
6. Invest without fear
In your house you will always need a piece of furniture that is the focal point of each area, for example: a bookseller with a lot of style, a striking picture, an armchair with personality, in short, look for an item, that is the statement of each room and invest at. Remember that “investing” does not mean spending millions, but buying something functional, that lasts over time and survives the fashion.
7. The floors are important
Identify what style of furniture and decoration you have at home and choose the right floor. You can use from mats, wood sheets, marble and a host of materials to give it life.
8. Local Location
The outdoor environment is also a factor to consider, since combining a beach style in a city and a healthy lifestyle can be very complicated. No doubt, it would not make you feel good at all. Although it is not a determining factor, if you find a layout between the exterior and the interior environment that fits your favorite style, it will always be a much simpler formula.
9. Reusable objects
To make a change it is not necessary to get rid of everything. You can keep the objects that have great sentimental value for you and find an appropriate place during the remodeling. In the same way, with a bit of luck and style, you can adapt it or find the perfect place.
10. Reinvented tiles
Lose the fear of experimenting with tiles of different sizes and colors, even from other materials such as porcelain and even dare to combine them! This is a new trend that can reinvent a boring room or spaces few thought for this material as kitchens or rooms.
Additional tip: Remember that renewing an interior space takes time, patience and a load of creativity. Start with the simplest or the room in which you spend more time, so you will feel motivated to keep moving forward and little by little you will have new interiors with a lot of style
