How to Fall in Love with Your Home Again

So, you are bored with how things currently are in your home? Maybe you feel the house needs a complete makeover, or certain pieces of furniture have outlived their relevance. Whatever the case, you can find your first joy about your home back. No one is saying that the journey to fulfilling your fantasy about your home will be easy, but it certainly would be an effort worth it. After all, it is where you lay your head after the day’s toils. By following the few tips in this piece, you can get the inspiration you need.

Begin With the Furniture

Your first disgust about your house is probably the furniture there. And funny enough, one of the first things guests do in a new home is to take a look at the first furniture in your living room and from there, they quickly gauge your economic standing. Of course, you don’t have to impress anyone, but for your enjoyment, you have to tidy things up. Items of furniture have their expiry dates, although they may not be written on it. As such, if you have one that has lasted a decade, begin by changing them.

Which Furniture Should You Change First?

The choice of which furniture to change first depends on who you are. If people visit your home frequently, you will have to begin with those items in your living room. Make sure the center table is welcoming and nice-looking. Typically, it is among the attractive pieces of furniture that no home can ignore. Once the living room is set, proceed to your bedroom (s) and replace all old furniture with new ones.

What about the Curtains?

Falling in love with your home can hardly happen without the aid of beautiful and original curtains. While you fix the furniture, never forget about them. But how do you select the right ones? The first thing to consider is the color of the building. The curtains should complement and not be at variance to the building’s color. You may want to invite an interior decorator expert to help you decide what type and color of curtains will best fit your home.

Should You Repaint?

Of course, you may have to repaint if it’s been up to two years you painted last. But repainting is not just about the number of years; it is also about how well the house has been used. With proper maintenance, you can repaint once every 3-4 years. That said, if you feel like giving the entire home a new look, painting is not a bad option, although you would have to do that before changing the furniture and curtains.

What about Your Budget?

The magnitude of the makeover you can do to your home will depend on how much you have to spend. That is why the first step to take maybe an analysis of your budget. If you don’t plan your budget accordingly, you might start the renovation and not complete it. Where your income cannot match your desired renovation, begin with the most important things first. You can come to others later.
