If you’re feeling bored and you’re ready to try something new in this latest lockdown, why not look at decorating your home? It makes sense, seeing as you’re already spending so much (potentially frustrating!) time in there…
Decorating your home is the ideal way to keep your mind and body busy in an otherwise trying and stressful time. It doesn’t have to be complicated, either. Here we’ve put together 5 simple yet stunning ideas for redecorating your own home.
Have a plan in place
Let’s start with the most obvious, shall we? Before you make any sort of move on your room or your home, make sure that you have a plan in place! It might be tempting to hop onto Amazon or B&Q and order this wallpaper and that paint, this wardrobe and that lighting – but you could end up regretting it. Instead, look at the bigger picture and make sure that you’ve strategised properly so that, by the end of it, your home looks exactly like you want it to.
Pick a signature colour
The colour of your space is everything and more, so choose carefully in the planning stage. If you like the idea of using color to create an emotionally healthy home, color consultants say you should first consider the primary function of each room.
Think about what colours you’re drawn to, and which evoke the right emotions. Perhaps a yellow kitchen would make you feel happy, and a blue bedroom would mellow you out? Find the colour that works for you and start the decorating process on the right foot.
Include a focal feature in each room
Add a distinctive ‘conversation piece’ to each room in your house to really inject some pizazz and style! Think of a unique chandelier in your dining area, or a funky piece of framed print alongside your stairs. It’s true that your home will never feel like your home until you’ve left your individual mark on it, and a focal feature is key.
What makes this aspect even better is that there are loads of treasures you can find in charity shops or at the local market, so it doesn’t have to break the bank. Yes, add that to your long list of ‘places to go’ when lockdown restrictions are lifted.
