Love it? Pls Share it!

Sometimes the reason you get fed up with your house isn’t that you don’t like its location or size, but because it’s looking a little dull around the edges. We’re always told to revamp our wardrobe and hair every couple of years, so why not our house too?

Refreshing and renewing the parts that are looking a little lackluster can make your house look like a completely new property. Especially if you are smart with color, brave with design and happy to keep up with the times. This is practical magic at its best. Read on to discover some tips and tricks that will transform your home.


Step Outside And Take A Look

We get so used to coming home to the same place every night that will probably fail to take a look around the exterior of our property before we step inside. Take time to step outside and see what needs to be refreshed.

Renovating the exterior of your property can give it a whole new lease of life. From fresh paintwork to contemporary siding, there are plenty of ways to make your house look super plush and new again.

You may also want to consider getting a new style of roof. For example, a beautiful gable roof will provide extra space for an attic and also sheds snow and rain efficiently. And a butterfly roof will give you more space to add larger windows, which will let in more natural light.

Precision contracting companies will be able to provide you with plenty of ideas and services that can completely transform the exterior of your home.

Add Drama Inside with Bold Color

An affordable way to update the interior of your home is with new colors and wallpaper. Many people are scared of using anything other than whites or magnolia, but it pays to go bold. And bold doesn’t have to mean bright pink or red. Think stylish, elegant, industrial and period styles.

Use Pinterest for inspiration and start collecting images of all the colors that make you feel good. Large blue and white striped wallpaper never dates and looks super stylish in hallways, dining rooms, and bedrooms.

If you have a large living room, navy looks elegant against white paintwork. A feature wall with a nature motif also makes a great statement wall.

Bedrooms painted in muted shades of gray will rival the best luxury boutique hotels. And kids playrooms in bright pops of orange and yellow look cheerful and high energy.

Aubergine is a beautiful rich color that exudes luxury and looks very regal. And light blues will give a coastal feel to your property.

Warm grays and pewter will look timeless in the kitchen and also add a touch of elegance to the bathroom too.


Tricks To Create the Illusion of More Space

If budget and design allow you may want to consider knocking down a wall to create the illusion of more space. Formal dining rooms are going out of fashion and open plan kitchen/living spaces are on point. Knocking out a wall can add value to your house and also give you a better living/kitchen space.

Investing in ornate freestanding floor-to -ceiling mirrors also creates the illusion of more space. These look great in lobbies, bedrooms, and living areas.

New lighting can also instantly update your property.  Get rid of old-fashioned ceiling lights. Replace them with iconic masterpieces or contemporary floor lamps and table lights. Integrated spotlights look great for ceilings. And they work well with dimmer switches to create different ambiance at certain times of the day/evening.

Window treatments are also an easy way to refresh the interior of your property. Think plantation shutters, bamboo blinds or curtains with sheer panels that match the color of your walls.

It’s time to give your home a makeover and create a space that you just love coming home to every day!
