Ways to Give Your Home a Quick Makeover

1. Use textured wall paints

Gone are the days when you had no choice but to paint the walls of your house with a solid color. Today, colors are available in textured options too. Get rid of tacky wallpapers or boring solid colored walls and give them a dash of life with a textured paint. You can choose from natural effects of stone, grass, water or charcoal along with artificial options of mosaics, checks, lines and plaid designs if you opt for textured paints. You can even use textured paint on one wall and accentuate its effect by contrasting it with solid colored paints on other walls.

2.Change your upholstery

Sometimes, the only thing your house needs to look uplifted and cheery is a change in upholstery. Sofa covers and cushions can look worn out after they are used for a few years. Getting upholstery in a totally new color scheme will give your interiors a breath of fresh air. Use plain, sequined and textured upholstery to make your home look new instantly.

3.Stick to a theme and color palette

You can give your home a quick makeover if you stick to a color scheme and a theme before you head out shopping. This will also help you to focus on what you should buy. For example, a royal theme would include a color palette with hues of blue and maximum use of antiques

4.Make more use of indoor plants

Would you like to have a lot of greenery outside your house? If you are fond of greenery, use indoor plants to change the look of your home. Check out specific low maintenance indoor plants at your local nursery and spruce up your interiors by giving them nature’s touch. A large plant in between two couches or a small potted plant in the corridor to fill empty space will give your house a fresh touch and will make it look new.

5.Change the lighting of your interiors

If your house is only filled with yellow or white lights, you could get bored with them very soon. Give your interiors a refreshing touch by changing the lighting scheme of your house. Use special drop down lights over paintings and use low lighting for vases, book shelves and accessories. You can also use mood lighting to create ambiance in the dining room, bedroom and living room. You will realize the significance of lighting in interior design when you see how different your own house looks with a new set of lights.

6.Use quirky and sophisticated storage pieces and accessories

Add glamour to your house by scouting for quirky or sophisticated accessories to adorn your decor. Select high design bookshelves, chic coffee tables and quirky wall pieces to decorate your house. Your house will look like it has been renovated by a professional interior designer if you pick eye catage pieces and accessories.
