If you are thinking about making improvements to your home’s design, you are not alone.
Home design is an exciting venture, particularly in modern times – as there are limitless options for you to choose from. Any design feature you want is possible – even if you are working on a budget.
So, if you want to breath fresh life into your home through renovation, here are some pro tips for you to follow in 2021. They will make you an expert in DIY in no time.
Use the best tools
When you are giving your home new design features through DIY – be it inside or outside – it is essential to use the best tools. For example, if you are working with wood, you will have to use a high-quality handsaw; or if you have accidently broken a new table in the design process, you will need to use some gorilla glue to stick the pieces back together. All the tools you need, and more, are available at Tradefix Direct.
Remember, though, use all of your tools and accessories carefully – the last thing you need is to end up on the news like the gorilla glue girl did!
Make use of new technology
Many modern homes now feature new technology that not only looks great but comes with a host of benefits.
Now, you can get Bluetooth thermostats, multicolored LED lights, and home speakers – all capable of connecting to your phone and being controlled at the touch of a button.
Get the core of your aesthetic right through wall paint
At the core of every home’s design is the wall paint. It sets the mood and aesthetic whilst helping to draw attention to the other design features within your home.
After a long 2020 and first quarter of 2021, the chances are you have grown tired – or become too familiar – with your home’s wall paint. The world is slowly returning to normality and so giving your walls a fresh lick of paint is a great way to signify the start of a new era.
You do not have to paint every wall in the house a new color – at least not all at once. Start with your main rooms first, such as the dining room and kitchen.
Rearrange your furniture
Here is a low-cost pro tip: Rearrange your furniture. You will be surprised how much this can make your home’s design feel new without actually adding any new features to it. You can rearrange the couches in your living room, or the desk and lamps in your home office. Also, rearranging furniture can often unveil new spaces for you to get even more creative with your DIY.
Customize your wall art
Wall art is a wonderful way to express yourself and take your home’s interior design to another level – it should not just exist to fill the gaps.
There are numerous ways you can really make your wall art stand out. Here are a handful of useful, creative ideas:
- Go green by adding some shelves to your walls which can then be a home for plants
- Make an incense shrine
- Add mirrors
- Create a ‘timeline wall’ – which will include (from left to right) photos of you through different eras of your life until the present moment
Or, if you are more of a minimalistic, ‘less is more’ type of DIY person, you could save singular pieces of art for each of your wall.
Hopefully, you found these home design tips useful. Make sure to use them and do not hesitate to experiment along the way.
