Now with the current global pandemic, staying at home almost 24/7 is the new normal. Looking for ways of changing how things look inside can be therapeutic and good for our minds. But you may be trying to avoid this, because it may cost a lot of money. The good answer is that you can actually accomplish this without having to spend a single penny.
Spending so much time at home has made us aware of the things that we like and dislike the most of our decoration. This is a good way to start. Re-Evaluate Your Current Layout, think about that dining room where you have only eaten 5 times or change of place that table that you don't like in your balcony, maybe in it will look better on the living room. Observing things from a different perspective is totally free and it can change everything!
Joseph Marini, an interior decorator, and owner of At Home With Joseph, says that rearranging a room with the same furniture can make a big difference:
“Say you have a sofa and two easy chairs that are kitty corner to the sofa. Try taking them and facing them across from the sofa, or putting them beside each other at a right angle to the sofa. Just changing the angles of furniture can give a room a whole new look.”
According to interior design experts, another smart way of redecorating your home is to buy things that you already have. Yes, this means that your best shop is your home itself. You can redesign different rooms of your house by using items that you already have and by keeping original pieces that you may keep hidden in your attic.
Here are 10 suggestions from Marini on how to refresh the look of your home:
Create an inviting outdoor area.
Try a different way of making your bed.
Break out the paint and brushes.
Tend to window treatments.
Bring the outside in.
Redo your bookshelves.
Highlight collections by gathering pieces in one place.
Reorganize a room by switching out a piece of furniture.
Re-cover a chair to give it a new look
