3 Rooms in Your Home That Could Use a Makeover
Your home deserves some attention to keep it as comfortable, bright, and fresh as the people in it want to feel. Changing up the interior design of a few rooms can keep the home looking modern and well-kept, while also giving you a little change of scenery to be excited about.
Your Guest Bathroom
The guest bathroom is small enough to make changes easy, but it’s trafficked enough that you want to make those changes effective. Take the opportunity to address issues that have come up since the last renovation.
Is the room spaced well? Are things easily accessible? Does there need to be storage added or taken out? How does it look and feel overall? According to Dwell, bathrooms should be well lit, functional, and pleasant (not so busy or cluttered that the room feels overwhelming to be in).
Consider any bigger changes, like spacing and hardware, before deciding on design elements like colors, décor, and materials.
The Master Bedroom
According to Pierce Design + Build, the bedroom is the most personal room in a home and should reflect your unique personality.
In addition, it is also the room you are most likely to go to for any rest or relaxation—so make it a room you can do both easily in! Use subtle colors that create calm, pleasant moods for you. Keep decorations simple, and relevant to what makes you happy!
Keep spacing in mind to allow enough room in your room to not feel cluttered or claustrophobic. Don’t forget to give yourself some storage options; bonus points if they can double as a furniture piece that is as decorative as it is useful!
Test out different lighting, curtains, pictures or posters, or whatever wall hangings you feel contribute best to your space.
The Living Room
The living room is sometimes underappreciated aesthetically, even though it serves an important purpose in the home as a gathering and welcoming and unwinding place.
Like bedrooms, living rooms should invite calm and pleasant feelings through the colors, spacing, and any additional visible features. Light colors, for example, make rooms feel larger than they are.
According to The Spruce, statement or accent pieces like rugs or wall and ceiling hangings draw attention to singular parts of the room, expanding all the area around it.
Each room of your home should be as enjoyable to simply be in as it is to use for whatever purpose it’s intended for.
Giving a room or two a new coat of paint and moving some furniture around can be the simplest way to make the biggest difference in how you see or feel in your own home.
