Taking Advantage Of Lockdown To Give Your Home A Makeover
For many people, their home is their most valuable and important possession. During the pre-pandemic era, we often took our homes for granted. However, today our homes serve as a protective refuge and shelter which is protecting us from the pandemic. Still, as we spend more time at home during lockdown, we begin to get tired of our home’s appearance and want to change things up a bit.
With that in mind, we are going to take a look at some easy DIY home makeover tips that can give your home a ‘New Year, New Me’ look of its own:
Paint Walls- when painting your home’s interior walls, you should wait for dry weather. Before you start painting, do a thorough inspection to find any peels, flakes, and cracks. Prep the surface before painting and make sure to use high-quality painter’s tape, roller covers, and brushes to get the best results. A poorly planned DIY painting project could ruin your furniture, carpet, floors, or appliances. Make sure to cover or remove them before you begin painting. It’s a good idea to install new LED lighting fixtures before painting so you can get a feel for the true colour of your finished project. As an additional expert tip, if you want to mix paint colours, do it in large batch to get more consistent results.
Lighting- adding new interior lighting to your home is an easy DIY project for just about any homeowner. If you want to make your home office space larger, make sure to add accent lighting which will bounce light onto walls and the ceiling. Make sure that all of the corners and one side of wall is illuminated by your room’s ceiling light fixture. Lower hung pendant lights and vertical light beams can make a room look taller. As an additional expert tip, be sure to avoid glare which can be distracting in bedrooms, living rooms, and home offices.
Window Treatments- when improving the look of your windows, consider removing excess elements and make things look more minimalistic. Pleated shades allow plenty of natural light in, while maintaining a good level of privacy. If direct sunlight is too harsh and hot, use woven wood shades or retractable wood blinds with interior lighting accents. Choose table lamps or floor lamps that compliments your new window treatments to create a natural flow.
