Tips for redecorating your home
During this quarantine you have probably become an exquisite cook, daily athlete, committed reader, excellent table player and film critic for Netflix, but you have forgotten your interior designer side. Maybe this is the time to take a closer look around you, see what things you would like to change about your home and make them happen.
You can do a lot of things without leaving your home… Here are a few ideas you can use to change your home now that the good weather is approaching.
Paint the walls: Without modifying the general structure, you can totally change a room by painting the walls. Make use of white, beige or creamy colors as they work very well with sunlight. Now that days are getting longer, they will help you to enhance the amplitude of the spaces and to avoid the use of artificial light as much as possible.
If you have a play area or children’s room, you can try yellow or mint green.
Textile accessories: It’s no longer time for carpets, so pack them up and put them in a closet. Change the winter blankets for the thin, colored ones to have a more suitable atmosphere for the arrival of summer. The curtains can be replaced by screens, much more appropriate!
If you want to give a new image to your bedroom, you can also change the bed linen with a floral pattern or a touch of mustard (this year’s trend). It will look new.
The bathroom will convey a totally different feeling just by putting in new towels with bright colors.
Move furniture: Without the need to throw away partitions or incorporate new ones, you can change the distribution of a room. How? By moving the furniture. For example, if you have an armchair in the bedroom, you can put it in the living room next to the window and a side table to create a reading corner.
Another option is to paint that old chest of drawers you had in your room or the sideboard in the hall (to give some examples). Sometimes, a change of color is enough to make it look new. We recommend that you choose light colors such as white or nude to give a feeling of lightness.
On the other hand, we advise you to change the standing shelves for some wall ones in search of a more open space.
Plants: We have already explained the benefits of having plants in the house so, on top of that, now they are also perfect for decoration. This good weather makes the flowers more beautiful than ever. If you have a terrace, you can’t miss them.
Re-use of accessories: Sometimes it only takes a little time and imagination to completely change a space. Time to let your imagination run wild.
For example, you can decorate the kitchen with transparent jars filled with colored pasta or spices. If you have handwritten recipes and saved them, you can assemble your own book and use it as a decoration on the counter.
A mug turned into a pen holder for your new telecommuting office or a simple wooden slat as a shelf. Take out all those books you have already read from the drawer and display them to have your own library.
Sentimental objects: Retrieve travel memories and dust off those photographs you had in your drawer. You can make a picture collage on the living room wall or in the bedroom. There is the option to do it with picture frames or simply with a rope and tweezers that hold the pictures.
In these complicated moments it will be a good dose of energy. You can also hang that picture you had pending and had not yet done.
Sort: Although this task is not always appealing, we have already mentioned the importance of tidiness as it can affect your mood. Marie Kondo has the keys to how to do it.
Of course, there will be some things that you would have liked to do and that you couldn’t so make a list and start defining your project. Don’t forget that you can do a lot of work: Measure the rooms, the furniture, and write it all down. Look for inspiration to make this idea come true. Discover our proposals in our Pinterest profile.
