This year may not be turning out exactly how you want it to, but there’s still a lot to look forward to this year. With all the events and issues happening across the globe, you have the choice to look at the brighter side and try to make the most of what you have at the moment. Aside from your family, what else do you have that you know you can take care of? Doing some home transformation projects will undoubtedly help you feel more productive this year.
And although the year is almost nearing its end, that’s no reason to ignore your desire to transform your home. It’s not too late to give your humble abode the makeover it deserves. You might be surprised to realize that it’s not too hard to achieve an award winning design through the home transformation ideas below:
1. Declutter And Rearrange
You’re not alone if you think all the rooms in your house have stayed the same for years. Perhaps that could be the reason why you feel the space desperately needs a transformation. Sometimes, all it takes is a bit of elbow grease in terms of decluttering. When the area is finally clutter-free, you can start with a clean slate and see a clearer vision of how you want to transform the space into something fresh and stylish.
Suppose your furniture and appliances are fairly new and you don’t fancy the idea of replacing them yet. In that case, one quick way to give any room a makeover is by simply rearranging and reorganizing everything. Maybe the couch will look better in a different spot. Spruce up the décor by moving things around without having to dispose of anything.
2. Lift The Mood Through Mood Lighting
It’s not an exaggeration when people say lighting can make any space dramatic and instantly eye-catching. You won’t even need to completely upgrade everything in the room. Swapping out a few of your existing lighting fixtures will already make a difference, especially if you know which lights and areas to enhance.
Instead of old-fashioned chandeliers, why not consider adding pendants and sconces instead? These fixtures are great for illuminating your home and highlighting certain areas where you want to draw attention. For instance, the sides of your sofa or couches can use reading lights and nightstands. Staircases and hallways will also look brighter if you’ll take some time to incorporate flush mount lights that are perfect for creating a transition effect.
Additionally, you can also enhance your outdoor space through mood and functional lighting. Pathways and porches are some of the areas that could greatly benefit from spotlights, layered lighting, and hanging lanterns. Moreover, your pool area would look warmer and more inviting if you add hardscape lights around water features. To finish it off, install floodlights in the patio and other high-traffic areas in your outdoor space.
3. Give Your Walls A Brand-New Personality
Giving your walls an instant makeover is another quick way to transform your home this 2021. If your walls have had the same color or pattern for a long time, it might be time to upgrade them. Consider installing mobile wallpapers that you can easily peel and stick to the walls without damaging them. Mobile wallpapers come in a plethora of colors and patterns, and you won’t run out of options regardless of your décor or home theme.
If you’re up for some do-it-yourself projects, you can also shop for paints and brushes and take on the repainting job yourself. If your kids are old enough to help out, you can use this as an opportunity to bond with them. Be sure to protect the floor and other furniture before working on your little transformation project.
4. Bring In The Outdoors
In case you’re not up-to-date with the latest trends, adding indoor plants is a popular way to beautify living spaces. Even when you don’t have a green thumb, there are different houseplants you can get for your home that won’t require extensive care. Aside from improving indoor air quality, plants can instantly beautify any given space.
There are flowering shrubs and plants like peace lily, bromeliad, geranium, and Christmas cactus. To make the space greener and more relaxing, you can add aloe vera, monstera deliciosa, pothos, spider plants, and philodendron green. All it takes is knowing where to place the plants to turn your home into a peaceful sanctuary.
Your home is where you spend most of your time—a space where you can bond with family and friends. In this regard, it’s only logical to think of ways to transform it every once in a while. If it’s been quite some time since you last had a home makeover or remodel, 2021 could be the year to think about finally doing it. With the help of the tips above, transforming your home isn’t too far-fetched of an idea to consider.
