Rooms in your home can look and feel bland, and ready for change, especially if they have been left untouched for many years. Giving a room a complete makeover can be costly, and it can be time-consuming too. So, instead of focusing on making over a whole room, why not focus on adding some new touches to reinvigorate the space, and potentially save yourself some money in the process too?
Rearrange What You Already Have
You may already love the furniture and furnishings that you have, but you may be bored with their positions. So, why not try to rearrange what you already have? Move the sofas, or move the ornaments around. When you rearrange what you have already, you keep the room feeling just as you want it to, and this is important. Change can be good for you and your home, but you will find when reinvigorating rooms that big change is not always needed. If you don’t like the idea of rearranging a whole room, then focus on moving one or two items at a time. Live with them for a few days and see if you are happy and content.
Add a New Rug
Floors can quickly look tired in any room, especially those rooms that are heavily used. To reinvigorate a room, you could add a new rug that will add depth and luxury to even the most tired flooring. Persian Rugs can add a luxury and classic feel, and they can also inject new color into a space. Handmade rugs that are made from recycled materials can give your room a more relaxed and laid-back feel. Faux fur rugs can add a sumptuous touch to any room and create a feeling of warmth.
Incorporate Statement Pieces
Statement pieces in a room can draw your eye and attract your attention. Statement pieces, such as a new mirror, a new vase, or even a collection of photo frames can liven up any space. Adding statement pieces gives a room a new focal point and feature to discuss. Statement pieces do not always have to be grand or large. They can sometimes be small things, such as a new clock on the mantelpiece or a new floral arrangement in the window.
Create a Feature or Accent Wall
Paintwork can let down any room, and sometimes, the thought of painting a whole room can give you nightmares. So, instead of taking on a large project, why not focus your attention on creating a feature wall? A feature wall or accent wall that may be a different color (or even finished in wallpaper) can create a new point of focus, and it can help elevate how a room looks and feels. When creating a feature wall, you could look at adding texture, perhaps by adding raised wallpaper, or by mixing brushstrokes and techniques.
Remember that to reinvigorate a room you must see the full potential it has to offer. You must look past what it looks like now and see what it can be soon. When you can see the potential of a room, you have won half of your battle.
