Your home has every right to wear an improvised look. Through elegant furniture, good furnishings and smart decorations, that promise is somewhat kept. For complete turn-about, you also need to give your home an eclectic coloring.
Faux painting allows depth and shade to your home. Texture painting makes one side of the house brighter than the other and so lends a unique touch. Some go for minimal and rugged coloring. It is almost like a faded jeans effect.
Always paint the living room light. This is where the guests occupy places and it becomes urgent to give them an illusion that the hall is bigger than it is. This is possible through light and stripped painting. Also keep your furniture almost touching the walls and allow good walking space.
Bedrooms should have a non-minimal non-stuffy look. This is arranged through a careful assortment of wood and metal. Make the bed huge and keep certain antique fixtures in your bedroom.
Bathroom is a place you occupy alone. You will feel better if there are things to gaze at while taking a dip in the bathtub. So a Veronese or Picasso painting at the facing tiled wall is intelligent stuff. Keep the shower stalls and mats assorted at an angle so that the general bathroom area is kept empty.
Remodel your kitchen and stuff all your kitchen belongings in the cabinet. Arrange for a counter-top sink. Paint the kitchen in a bright color. Then even if the lights go, you may not be completely in the dark.
Priming is an essential feature of painting. Invest a whole day in it. You can also go for the smoothening plasterwork before giving it paint. Keep a sander handy. Check the floors. Mosaic flooring may go well with dark colors but concrete floors won’t. Give the dining room a chiaroscuro look (light and shade).
If your house is replenished with several valuable paintings and good architecture, give a thought to the style of painting. For one, you won’t need much lighting. Just the painting lighters will be enough to keep the rooms glowing. So in this case mauve or maroon color will satisfy the conditions. Check if the ceiling is flaking off. Then get the ceiling off in sections and get it textured or put again.
Keep the bookcase and mantelpieces in plain show. Living room is the place for them to show their stuff. Use all your ingenuity in the kid’s room. Make it a splash with a tentacle of colors thrown for absurd effect. Let them paint it with their own imagination. Just lend them a helping and advisory hand.
These tactics will get your home an improvised look without spilling much sweat. Just make sure you keep good care.
