Redecorating a Home With Furniture Edits
It’s not always possible to go out and replace furniture, especially costly items like sofas and armchairs. However, there are many of ways to upgrade the furniture you have already.
The first method is the simplest. Just move your furniture around. Look at your room carefully. Would it benefit from changing the position of furniture? Or the angles? Is there an area of the room that is bathed in sunlight in the morning? Would it benefit from moving your sofa or chairs into this area? Moving the position of a few key items will give the room a whole new look and feel.
Another option is to upgrade the furniture you have. There are lots of furniture restorations and re-upholstery tips online. If this is not something you can do yourself, make sure you find an experienced craftsman to do it for you.
Repair any damaged furniture to give it a new lease of life. If items are feeling a little old or faded, it might benefit from new upholstery. This is a great way to add new furniture, without having to pay the full price for it. You can also coordinate colors with your decor themes. Another way to update furniture is to paint it. Chalk paints are very popular and will transform old or dull furniture into contemporary and vibrant pieces. Smaller, subtle redecorating enhancements can be made by lining shelves and drawers with wrapping paper.
Redecorate a Home With Decor Edits
Redecorating will instantly transform your home. However, if this isn’t an option, there are simpler changes you can make. Rather than painting or wallpapering the whole room, what about creating a feature wall? This can be achieved in many different ways.
- Repaint one wall in a different color
- Wallpaper one wall only and leave the remaining walls plain
Use stencils to add accents to one or several of your walls
- Apply removable wall stickers to add accents
- Add a selection of photos, pictures, or plates to one wall.
All of the above will create a focus or feature wall.

Don’t forget the floor when you’re updating rooms. If carpets are looking a little old and tired, hire a professional carpet cleaner. The results might surprise you. Colors and patterns are revitalized and the room is instantly fresher. Small stains can be tackled at home but make sure you refer to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Another way to update your flooring is to introduce rugs. These range from large floor coverings to smaller carpets. They add instant color and texture to a room and can hide a multitude of imperfections. If placed strategically, rugs can also give the illusion of a larger space.
