Tired of looking at the same décor everyday? Follow these simple and useful home improvement ideas to bring about a visual change in style and impact. There is no need to splurge on expensive items to give your home a new look. Look around you and decide how you can re-arrange the furniture and introduce a few pieces from another room to create a new seating area. Browse EBay for any unusual objects or pieces of furniture which may suit your home. They generally sell used and sometimes antique furniture for a throw away price.
Spruce up your living room
Introduce the colors of spring into your living room. Give a cheery décor to the dining area and all areas that have public access. The kitchen is also a place where friends drop in to have a chat and a quick cup of tea. A fresh coat of paint makes a world of a difference to a dull drab home.
A useful home improvement idea would be to highlight one wall with a bright color. Run the same color on the cornice of your ceiling keeping the rest of the ceiling a pale color. You will be amazed to see how this brightens the room. Change the lighting and use highlighters to focus on any particular object that you would have stand out like for instance, pieces of art or architectural details. Use mood-elevating task lighting or a couple of hanging pendants over your sink or island in the kitchen. If you are using track lighting suspended from a single point on the ceiling, manipulate the direction of the curve.
Make your bedroom a haven in your home
Use these useful home improvement suggestions to make a transformation in your bedroom.
Remove all the heavy curtains and drapes and go in for a mix and match of color. Create a stunning room by using a single design with large floral prints or a theme. Cut out one of the flowers and make a frame to hang over the headboard. Use two or three of the colors on the design to sow full length curtains. The color scheme could be placed horizontally and need not be proportionate. This means that the top and bottom layer could be more than the one used in the centre or you could make the bottom layer larger than the second and use a smaller layer for the top. Use your eye to decide which would look nice. Use all of the design when making your coverlet so that it drapes all around and overhangs on the bed. Use the smaller prints on the cushion so that the whole room has a theme. Throw in a few bed side rugs, make sure the lampshade matches any one colour and voila! You have a new bedroom!
