1.Give it a dash of paint
One of the easiest and fastest techniques is to change the paint on a wall or a section of wall. Do not hesitate to add a touch of color, it will bring warmth to your space. If you want to use white, avoid « true » white because it will make the room look colder. Instead, choose off-white and its variations, which are warmer and brighter.
2.Do not neglect the toilets and hallways
We go there several times a day, which is an excellent reason to give them some attention. You can afford to be a little crazy and do something fun, daring, unexpected that will capture the attention of your visitors.
3.Multiply the lighting spots
Light, both natural and artificial, makes your home more welcoming. Do not deprive your property of it! In addition to the central light of the room, add desk lamps, table lamps, reading lights, etc. You can also place some ambient lighting, string lights or other light sources with low intensity but great aesthetic. For the most courageous, you can replace your windows or doors with large bay windows that let daylight in more easily.
If you have a bit of a creative mind and like small handicrafts, you can decide to customize some furniture, change the flooring or wallpaper yourself. Besides, the latter is a great way for amateurs to change the image of a room without too much effort. In addition, there is plenty of DIY (Do It Yourself) content online to allow you to change the look of your home at a lower cost and with original results.
5.Vary the styles, colors (but not too much)
If you decide to go with a vintage, bohemian, modern, etc. style, try to incorporate furniture or colors that contrast with that style. For example, a coffee table that is a little rustic in a modern decor is much better highlighted and attracts more attention. The same goes for colors, limit yourself to three (03) colors per room if possible to keep the harmony and coherence of your decoration.
6.Collaborate with local craftsmen for atypical pieces
