Every so often, it can just feel like it’s time for a change, especially if the interior of your living space has looked the same for a long time. It’s easy to have a vague picture of a newly designed room in your head that will make your decorating itch go away, but it’s an entirely different challenge to make that dream part of your home. There are many different challenges that people face when deciding how to restyle a room, but there’s no need to worry about any of them. Each can be met with ease if you approach them with thoughtful decisions. The key is to take your time. If you want your room to be perfect, you can’t rush it!
1. Rearrange Your Furniture This is the easiest and cheapest way to solve your problem. Don’t spend a bunch of money on getting new interior decorations and paint cans before rearranging your furniture. This can help reframe your mindset on your living space and might make you feel like you can relax without heading to the store. Try restructuring the layout of your room by placing your furniture around a focal point. This can be a TV, a fireplace, a dresser, anything you think will stand out or be the center of attention. Even if you think it may look terrible, get out some sliders and move your furniture to places you wouldn’t normally put them. You may find that this simple act gives your room a facelift and more time to save money for the next big re-decorating session.
2. Find Your Style Interior design isn’t just something that happens without a theme. You might want to place very little in your room to keep it open and warm, but even that falls under the decorating style of minimalistic. If you try rearranging and get assured that you need to start a room from scratch, first you need to find out what style fits your personality the most. You’ll also have to consider if the room theme you choose will work best for what purpose the room serves. For example, you might like the look of decorative antiques that add texture and history, but if an office space is cluttered with thrift store treasures, it may not conduct a good environment for you to produce your best work. Know yourself and know your theme, then go with what works best for the room.
3. Invest Your Money The idea behind a good restyling is that you’ll be thrilled with the results and won’t want to spend the same amount of money or more in the near future. Furniture is a huge factor in this. A couch or bed frame might look great with what you want your room to become, but will the material last long? Ideally, you should know what makes furniture a good investment because you go spending your money. That couch should last you five to ten years, and that bed frame even longer.
4. Get the Right Paint Choosing a new paint color for your room can be the most exciting and terrifying part about decorating. It gives the look of your room new life, but there are about a million shades of your favorite color to choose from. Thankfully, there are some easy ways to help pick out the right color for your room, and none of them involve trial and error.
5. When in Doubt, DIY Sometimes even with the best decorating, rooms can feel like they’re missing something. If you find yourself in this situation, fix your uneasiness with a Do It Yourself project! These can be as little as homemade picture frames or as big as house renovations, and there are some basic rules to follow to stay safe and create something perfect. Don’t have a history in crafts? You can still do a DIY project, just choose one that you’re confident in!
Whether you’re restyling one room or multiple, starting out can make you feel like you’re constantly hitting roadblocks if you don’t know where to go. No matter what the purpose of your room is, following steps like these will help you figure out exactly what you want and how to get it without draining your wallet. All it takes is an idea of what you’d like and you’re ready to go.
