Easy Home Makeovers

When a person thinks of making over their home, they usually imagine that renovations will cost thousands and thousands of dollars.  Obviously the average person doesn’t have a lot of extra dough lying around.  Therefore, many don’t explore the idea any further.

The truth is that there are many different ways to give the rooms in your home a new look.  There are different accents that you can add to change up the atmosphere of an entire room.  One of the best ways to do this is to put up some art work.  A stunning work of art placed in your bedroom or living room can truly transform the space.  Art work can also help to induce relaxation and provide creative inspiration.

Obviously, painting a room a different color can completely change the feel of the entire house.  It’s not a very expensive process, especially if you do it yourself, however, it can be time consuming.  Before choosing a color, it’s a good idea to research what colors correlate with specific emotions.  The color of the room can literally “color” your mood and energy level.  For example, blues tend to be very calming which makes them a great choice for the bedroom and bathroom.  On the other hand, bright colors like red, orange, and yellow can be very energizing which means they may not be the best choice for the bedroom.  Bright colors can work well in the living room and the kitchen.

One of the most overlooked options is to install decorative medallions in the various rooms of your home.  Believe it or not, medallions are not only reserved for mansions in Beverly Hills.  The average home looks great and more refined with the addition of a medallion.  Medallions can become an interesting focal point in a boring area of the home.  For example, a backsplash medallion inserted in the kitchen, above the stove, can bring some artistic flair to the area that you spend cooking and creating.

Don’t forget to add some live plants!  Potted plants and flowers can bring some color into your home and can actually help you to breathe easier due to the added oxygen in the environment.  Plants can also help you to relax and unwind after a long day.

By far, the easiest and cheapest way to renovate a room is to simply rearrange the furniture.  You can look up some Feng Shui tips on how to bring more positive and welcoming energy into your home.

Home makeovers don’t have to be incredibly expensive or time consuming.  There are many options to making your home stunning and inviting.
