Should all rooms in the house be the same color? The answer is a big no. It’s time to do a reality check. How much of your life do you spend in your home? What would you trade it for if money were no object? You should have a very good idea of what your ideal “fashions” are.
I think most people realize that there is only so much stuff in a house that it’s impossible to collect everything. You’ll never have all the great fashion magazines in the world, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add them up. You don’t want the TV, computer, music system and all the rest in every room. You have to make compromises.
But, you can add just one or two pieces to each room that will make a big impact. Take the family room, for example. Many families don’t even decorate this area! But, adding a family tree of old movies with remotes and such will instantly add to the “oomph” factor.
The dining room has an entirely different purpose. Here, you’ll want to be more fashionable and less formal. You want to make it a place where you can enjoy conversation with friends and family. You don’t need a huge table, but you should have enough seating for at least two people. A nice China collection and candles will add to the relaxed atmosphere.
One big thing that we’re not too careful about is the kitchen. This is one of the places in the home where we can go wild. You can use bold colors and accessories, or you can play it safe. The point here is to create a relaxed atmosphere that’s both trendy fashion forward and elegant.
Keep in mind that the refrigerator is one area that many people forget when redecorating. This is one room where you can spend a lot of money without spending much. So, if you’re looking to save money, don’t forget to include this in your menu.
Painting the walls in one shade is usually a good idea. For most rooms, you should paint one color, then continue to the next until each wall is the same shade as the others. Then, you can finish by adding one accent color here and one accent color there. Or, you can simply use various colors to create some interesting effects in your room.
You can easily keep your home updated without remodeling by using modern decors. Changing out old furniture is a relatively simple task. Modern furniture has a clean look that makes it easy to change out. And since it’s modern, you don’t have to worry about breaking the bank doing it. Just get contemporary decorating accessories and your job is done. The rest of the house will follow your design ideas.
Another way to save money is by eliminating any items in your home that are no longer being used. You can put items in storage cabinets and unused corners. Then you just need to remove the cabinet and replace it with new furniture that still looks nice. You can also remove items from the laundry room and bathroom.
Don’t forget to do up the floors in all rooms in your home. In particular, you need to consider how nice your hardwood flooring is. Different colors of wood stain are available so you can create the look you want for your house. You should also think about changing out window coverings like blinds and curtains. When you update the look of your house, you also update the feel of it.
Walls are one of the main areas to focus on when you decide what colors to paint in each room in your home. Make sure the walls are as neutral as possible. You should keep in mind that your paint will touch the wall above or below it. If you have a lot of windows, then you should consider using different color paints for each window. This will give them an overall different color to compliment the overall theme you have chosen. If you don’t have many windows, then stick to one paint color for all of the rooms in your home.
When you have made the decisions as to what rooms should be painted the same, then you should make a final decision. You should look at all the pictures in magazines and online to get a feel for the type of color you want your house to have. If you must change the decor entirely, then choose colors that are the most similar to your vision. The key is to stay within your price range and choose a color scheme that you like best.
