Moving into your new home can be a wonderful time. Living in a family home for the past few years could have been the best years of your life. However, there’s no shame in admitting you’d like the place at least a little redecorated. Updating the space as your tastes develop can help you own the space, and stamp your personal or your family’s personal identity upon it. Maybe you have something that is spurring this decision on, such as the arrival of a new child, or the fact that your children have flown the nest.
It can feel difficult to decorate in a smart way that works for you, because where are you supposed to start? It often seems like a great idea, and then when you realize how much creative freedom you have, you can become overwhelmed.
Luckily, you’re in the right place. Smart decoration is already at your fingertips, in that you already know what you want, you just need to unlock your ability to enact it. With our smart tidbits of advice, you’ll be headed in the right direction.
Upgrade Your Sofa
This is a smart solution because often, the sofa is the place where you unwind with your family after a long day. It’s the place where you can truly relax, untuck your shirt, and zone into entertainment or having fun with your family. It’s the place you may sleep for a few hours after a glass of wine on a weekend evening. It’s the place you most likely have trouble getting up from when your responsibility calls once more.
For that reason, this is a good place to start. Why not upgrade to a beautiful L shape sofa from Think Lounges, one that will support a growing list of family members? Redecorating the sofa with throws, tasteful use of cushions and maybe a footrest can really help bring the aesthetic of the room together, in that it will look supremely cozy. Sometimes, that’s all you need.
Upgrade Your Oven
Following the same logic as before, you need to find the areas of your house where you spend the most time and upgrade that. Your oven could be the next step. The kitchen is the heart of the home, and it’s likely that you spend a good portion each evening preparing sumptuous meals for the time-honored tradition of family dinnertime.
Upgrading your oven to a combi grill or beautiful Aga could help you indulge in a kitchen appliance that significantly makes a difference. You’ll be able to heat your house more effectively, cook more daring and sizeable meals (especially around festive periods,) and generally keep a more enjoyable experience cooking for your loved ones. This is the focal point of a kitchen, and of course can tie the room together beautifully.
Upgrade Your Entrance
First impressions matter. When someone first enters your home, you want to give a good impression. Not only that, but you want to feel welcomed home after a long, hard day of work. Giving your front door another lick of paint, tidying your front porch and placing decorated photo’s of your family in the hall allows for a simple stamp of personality. Having a custom sign made for your front door can already help show the personality and persuasion of those who reside there. Consider all possibilities. The entrance is where you can have the most fun, so really think about what makes your family tick, and express that in this area.
With these tips, you’re sure to have a wonderful time in your pursuit of redecoration.
