Sometimes, because of financial, time or other constraints, a massive remodel project may not be the best option. If you have guests coming over for the weekend and you want to rejuvenate your home, but do not have the luxury of time to call an interior design company to get to work on your home – what can you do? Here are some great ideas to help you get started to give your home a new look just in time for your weekend gatherings!
Cover it up!
Covering your furniture with slipcovers is an awesome way to give your old furniture, a brand-new look. Even if your furniture is still in great shape, a slipcover can bring a whole new feel to the room. Look for slipcovers that are reversible, which will give you the option to switch it out later. Be sure to be mindful of the measurements of your furniture before you purchase slipcovers. They are not all one size fits all. If you have a particularly unique piece of furniture, you may require a seamstress to create one for you.
Accents are one of the easiest ways to add a new flair to a “blah” room. Bright, but relevant, colored pillows or throws can be the perfect accessory to the room. Don’t go too wild here, though. Too many accessories can flood the eye and cause sensory overload. Be sure to choose colors that fit within the color scheme of the room to keep the items from looking like an afterthought.
We see it all the time - that wonderful, perhaps even antique, lamp with the out of date, falling apart lampshade. You don’t have to buy a whole new lamp to update the look. Simply find a new lampshade that matches the lamp to bring new life to the room.
Adding a new rug to a room is a fun and easy way to change the entire look! It will also help hide any unseemly stains or flaws in the flooring and work to protect the flooring from further damage.
