Take a look around your room, are your surroundings dull or decor uninspiring? Perhaps the paint is yellowing, the wallpaper is peeling, and the flooring has seen better days. Maybe new things have been added over the years, and the end result lacks cohesion and feels disjointed and odd. Your home is the place where you should feel at your most comfortable and relaxed, and having the right surroundings really can make a world of difference. Here are some of the ways you can update your home decor with as little hassle as possible.
Start With a Blank Slate
When you choose neutral wall and floor coverings, it gives you a blank slate. It means you don’t have to worry about using three coats of paint on the walls every time you want to update how the room looks, and instead just give it a quick freshen up every few years. Instead, bring in color and interest with your furnishings and accessories. Plain white walls, for example, will work with any accent shade, so whether you’re into monochrome or want to go all out with a bright color, it’s always going to work. It means that in future if you want to completely change your decor theme or color scheme, all you need to do is replace your rugs, cushions, curtains and accessories instead of having to start right from scratch. If painting walls feels like too much of a chore, you could consider making life easier by using a paint sprayer. You could read some reviews on an electric paint sprayers website to find one that’s best for your needs. A hard wearing, neutral carpet will last for years and go with any decor changes, or you could opt for wood, marble or stone. Again these will always match, and you can quickly make the room feel warmer and cozier with some large rugs.
Switch It Up By Season
To keep things interesting in the home, you could have two sets of home accessories and switch them up by season. During the spring and summer for example you could display pretty pastel flowers in vases, and pop some ditsy floral cushion covers on your cushions. You could even switch out your curtains for a pair of light, floaty voiles which will dress the windows while still allowing the room to flood with natural light. In the autumn-winter, you could change it up for deeper and darker shades, tartans, big bowls of scented potpourri. A thicker pair of curtains will block out harsh winter light as well as drafts. Did you know All About Interiors has a workroom that can make any type of custom window treatment? Simply put the off-season decor into a big sealed box and store it in the attic until you’re ready to use it again. It helps to keep the room looking new and exciting without having to constantly shop for and buy new things.
Call In The Professionals
If you don’t enjoy spending your weekends covered in wallpaper paste or balancing at the top of stepladders, call in the professionals to do the job for you. It may or may not be more expensive than doing it yourself, but if you want the job done quickly, efficiently and properly, this is the way to go about it. Even if you’ve always thought you could do your own decor or if you simply don’t have the time or energy then you could pay someone to do it for you instead. In Connecticut, a professional interior designer at All About Interiors can schedule an in-home consultation and get you well on your way to having that impressive decor you desire.
