Transforming your home, no matter your budget, can be a difficult task. Regardless of how much you’re looking to spend, it can be a tough task putting a mental image together of what you want your room to look like and following through. For some of us, design comes more naturally than others. Below I’ll share with you a few of my favorite quick and easy home transformations.
Many homeowners are quick to throw up any window treatment, just so long as it can block out light when it needs too. Many homeowners are quick to overlook how the right window treatment can set the tone for the entire room. This is why adding a stylish window treatment is always the first thing on my to-do list when revamping a room.
Depending on what look you’re going for, there are many options for you to choose from. Even switching from boring old aluminum blinds to elegant wood blinds can make a world of difference in the way your home looks. However, if you’re really looking for a new style, there are many different types of shades and blinds for you to choose from. My favorite place to grab high-quality window treatments is at a local shop here in Richmond, Mann Kidwell. They have a great selection and beautiful pieces that will look great in any home.
I always say that a beautiful piece of artwork can make the difference between a good room and a great room as far as style goes. One style that you can never go wrong with is having a large piece of artwork to serve as the focal piece for a room. When adding a piece like this, it’s always good to keep in mind that the more negative space the better – meaning that you don’t want to clutter your walls with other pieces or needless decorations.
A Paint Job
Repainting a room is one of the best and most inexpensive ways to change the way a room looks. Whether you’re just touching up a fading color or going with a new color altogether, a fresh paint job is sure to make your room feel new.
I aim to repaint my walls ever two years, but that’s just me. I’m a fan of change and I’m always switching up how my home looks. This is a little extreme for most people, but if you’re like me and love freshness, I definitely recommend giving it a try!
