Welcome back boo,
Improvements in decors are often subjectively based. While two interior decorators may agree on universal themes in general, the exact taste of the features they implement in a room may change. Room decorations are subjectively based, but they should have guidelines. For this reason, it’s refreshing to know that even our most niche tastes can often stay accommodated if we keep in mind certain decorative rules. For example, hosting too many colors in one room, or too many variant and non-conforming shapes, or outdated textured wallpaper can feel like decors no-nos, but personal ornaments you care about are likely completely fine and will not detract from a room in any way.
Still, sometimes paying attention to the universal matters of a room can help you make more macro changes for less money. If you hope to completely revivify a room, consider these tips:
It’s amazing to see that the last consideration that many make when decorating their homes is to replace the flooring. In some ways, it’s not hard to see why this is. Replacing flooring can often see expensive, or very inconvenient, as it depends on lifting all the furniture in a room out of it, and renders that room useless until the flooring is completed. However, for such an improvement, a day or two of inconvenience can be more than worth it. A carpet or set of clean floorboards can really tie the room together. It provides the visual color palette base of your room, and as such should most likely stay a neutral color. You can also opt for wonderfully bespoke carpets, which have the added effect of ornamentation, and lend your room a sense of color.
It would be an incomplete list if we didn’t pay heed to the renewed wonder a paint job can lend a room. However, perhaps repainting the entire space is not quite enough. Sometimes, muted efforts such as painting one wall a bright color and the others neutral, painting a mural in an open space to act as a space-free use of ornamentation and decoration, or simply replacing texture paint efforts with a simple, clean and stylish paint job can all work wonders. Try to think out of the ‘repaint in one color’ box, and see just how extra efforts sprucing up your place with unpredictable designs could help a room shine.
It might not be that your room actually needs redecorating. It might just be it’s a victim of little light. Implementing better light fixtures such as cleaner, stronger bulbs, placing a new mirror or perhaps simply changing the positions of your lamps in the room can all have a strong effect on how light plays in the area. The orientation of the room matters, as does the placement of the furniture. For example, if you have a wardrobe covering one-quarter of the window in a bedroom space, it’s not hard to see how the room might begin to feel oppressive. Switching items round, purchasing new light sources or simply reflecting them in smart ways can all have an effect, helping your room glow with a comforting luminosity.
Remember to keep on slaying,
See you next time xoxo
