Revamping Furniture

If you have outdated furniture, you may be looking for ways to give it new life. If you would like to stay on trend, it is best to keep the rooms of your house up to date. This is not to say that you need to redecorate your rooms fully by purchasing all new furniture every year. You can just update a few items in each room by finding cheap and stylish furniture. Redecorating can be simple and fun. Your clothing style changes throughout the years, so your décor needs its own spring cleaning every now and then, as well.

 

When it comes to revamping a space, something as simple decorating a lamp shade can give your living room a more modern look, especially since lighting is such an important part of a room. If you decide to revive your lamp shade, there are a few ideas that can assist you.

A crafty way to revamp your lamp shade involves yards of fabric and a hot glue gun.

  1. To begin this this project, measure out 3 to 5 years of a fabric you like. Make small cuts in the fabric that are about one inch apart.
  2. Make sure the fabric is separated. Hold the larger portion of the fabric with one hand and begin to tear the fabric that you cut with the other hand. Since you cut the fabric lengthwise, it will naturally tear in a straight line along the seams.
  3. Begin to tear the fabric into long strings.
  4. Create a ball with a one of the strings and begin to roll the remaining string around it to create a roll that resembles a rose. While rolling the string, be sure to add glue to ensure the fabric stays in place.
  5. Glue the roses onto the lamp shade.

Redoing a lamp in this manner will make it a focal point in your living room. You can even add a few different colors to the lamp in the spring time to make it more appropriate. This easy DIY project can completely change the way you feel about your living room.

In addition to this, if you are looking to redecorate your home based on the seasons changing, another small DIY that will make your living space pop with color can be done using plain white linen napkins and vibrant fabric paint.

  1. First, you will need to soak the cotton napkins with water.
  2. Wring the napkins out and lay them on a covered surface.
  3. Start painting at the bottom of the napkins.
  4. As you go up, dilute the paint with more water so it appears lighter as it reaches the top, creating an ombre affect.
  5. Hang and dry overnight.

This napkin DIY is a simple project that can add more personality to your kitchen. They look best with all white or other bright colored dish sets.

Adding Pom-Poms to Décor

Pom-poms are a new trend that more and more designers are adding to décor. They provide a chic aesthetic that gives your home a fresh look. Pom-pom décor is usually inexpensive, but it can add up if you overdo it. You can customize any bland or outdated furniture by simply adding pom-poms to it.

A few household items that could benefit from pom-poms are your pillows and curtains. You can purchase these soft accents from your local home store or online. Once you have the pom-poms, sew them to your pieces to give the items new life.

Redecorating Your Bedroom

As one of the most used rooms in your home, it is important to feel good about your bedroom’s décor. Your bedroom is where you should be able to relax and unwind. Relaxing is more fulfilling when you feel at home in your space. Even if you are not in the financial place to spend hundreds of dollars on new bedroom accessories, you can still give your room a makeover.

A cost-efficient way to personalize your room is to use leftover paint. If you have paint left over from the first time that you painted your room, use it to go back over the walls. A few new coats of paint can liven up your living space. The walls in your home typically need a fresh coat of paint every one to two years.

Accessorizing Your Room

When it comes to room accessories, a little can go a long way. One way to redecorate your bedroom is actually by eliminating some of the accessories in it. Over-accessorizing can make a room look crowded. To combat this, choose your favorite accessory be it a lamp, a long mirror or a trunk at the end of your bed. This piece will act as the focal point of your bedroom. Ask yourself if other materials in your room are competing with your focal point and decide how the other pieces could benefit another room. You should change your focal point and statement pieces every two to three years if you want to keep your decorations exciting.

Mattresses and Bedding

Mattresses are typically good for eight years. Before your mattress is worn out, do some research so that you can invest in a new mattress that will fit your needs.

The changing of seasons affects moods and actions. Many people have a winter wardrobe, as well as a spring and summer wardrobe. Your bedding should be no different. Seasonal bedding is simple, and it will save you money in the long run by allowing your bedding to stay in good condition for a longer period of time. To keep it simple, stick to rotating your bedding to fit the color scheme of the months. Summer bedding should consist of white and fresh linens. Your winter months are the time to try bedding tones that are warm and rich.
