There comes a day in most people’s lives when it’s time for a home makeover, or rather adding changes in the interior décor. Nowadays, you don’t have to be a professional, or have years of experience with makeovers, to be able to carry on with such a project, DIY style, thanks to the variety of sources that can be found in magazines, and the internet.
However, there are certain aspects one has to consider before carrying on with the project in the first place, and no, it’s not to do with the furniture pieces – the very step most take as the primary one. One of the things you’d definitely want to consider, and rightfully so, is the home lighting for instance, the very thing that turns the house into a home, and provides easy interior transformation.
Along with the wide range of lighting fixtures you can choose from, such as a variety of pendants, floor and table lamps, that can dazzle with their designs, and complement the interior décor, there’s also a variety of light bulb choices, from cold to warm hues, and the fact light can be used as ambient, task, and accent means lighting can define the space, set the mood, and serve functionality. Yes, home lighting is a scope of decisions.
Though it’s not always part of the makeover plans, the dominating interior colour should be among your priorities. Now that the world has been mesmerised by the Scandinavian minimalist styles, the soft neutrals have gotten plenty of attention, and it’s no surprise why.
A home interior filled with bright colours can become visually bigger, and more welcoming at the same time, improving the quality of living altogether. Having this in mind, it’s needless to say you have to think of the colour of the walls, floors, as much as the one of furniture, to come up with a harmonious outcome that would be pleasing to the eye.
It shouldn’t come as a reminder you have to really think of defining the style you prefer to surround yourself with, as it has its role in every choice that has to do with the makeover, but that’s not all. It’s rarely that people take some time to actually think on how much care and attention they’re willing to give to certain things of the interior décor.
This refers to cleaning, dusting, refurbishing, repainting, and re-upholstering, and it has a say in the type of furniture you get to buy, as well as the flooring, and the textures (e.g. rugs, curtains), so you can’t leave it out prior to taking up the makeover project.
