Giving Your Home A Make Over

If you have lives in your home for a very long time and you have not looked in to redesigning or giving your home a makeover in quite a while, you must be quite bored with the look of your house. You will be surprised to see how easy it is to give your home a brand new look without having to invest too much money at all and without having to make too much effort.

Change the colours of your home

One of the best ways to give your home a brand new look is to change the colour of your home completely. If your home is fairly small, it is advisable for you to opt for a very light colour or even white. White walls have the ability to make your home look a lot bigger than it actually is and if you choose to incorporate mirrors in to your design, you will be able to achieve this in an even greater way. If you have some money to invest in your home, you can add to the already elegant new look of your home by adding in some tapestries in to the mix. They have a way of making your home look amazing and elegant without you even having to try too hard and with your gorgeous new white or light coloured walls, you will be able to make your home look extremely beautiful.

It would not cost you a lot of money to purchase a beautiful tapestry if you look for them in antique shops, antique auctions or second hand stores. In fact, you should be able to get a very good deal on one at a local flea market or a second hand market.

Cleaning your home of clutter

The one thing that makes your home look small and dingy is the amount of clutter that is lying around all over your house and getting rid of all this clutter will make your home instantly bigger. By clutter, we mean extra chairs, extra furniture, extra cupboards and everything in between. You can even consider getting rid of all your current furniture at an auction and replacing it all with modern furniture that has storage inside it to help you with your clutter clearing project. If you do not have a lot of money to buy new furniture, you can even look on the internet for tutorials about how to make your own furniture with storage inside it. In fact, if you master the art, you might even be able to sell a few of them to friends and family who have the same problem.
