Getting a whole new look for a room does.t always have to mean repainting the walls, replacing the flooring, or buying a brand new set of furniture. It 's much easier to transform the interior look of a room by changing out a few essential items to give it a fresh new look without draining your bank account. Changing your decor seasonally can provide a place an instant lift without spending too much money or exerting too much effort. Try matching the home to the season by using floral patterns in the spring, pastels in the summer, plaids in the fall, or blues and whites in the winter.
Tired of looking at that same old sofa and chair year after year? Instead of getting new furniture, why not invest in one or two slipcovers to give your room an instant makeover? You will be amazed how different a place will look with new slipcovers. You can choose one or two solid colors as a base to add patterned throw pillows to or you can select a specifically patterned slipcover that will go well with yours.
You will probably need to change out your drapes or curtains to match the slipcovers, so consider purchasing them together, so the patterns. However, slipcovers and drapes don 't always have to match, so get creative by mixing complementary colors and patterns for a fresh new look. In the warmer months, you can hang lighter sheers or a simple valance and in the colder months thicker, heavier drapes.
Adding some new pillows, a comfortable throw, framed artwork, and a few accessories will pull the whole look together. You probably have some knick-knacks stored away that you haven 't used in a while, so consider bringing these out and using them when changing out your looks. This way you won 't get bored with the same old accessories, and you can enjoy some of your old favorites throughout different times of the year.
If you want a new fresh, seasonal look for your bedroom, invest in a couple of duvet covers of different colors or styles. Duvet covers are inexpensive and can be used over your existing comforter or blanket. They are also much easier to clean, a good selling point if you have pets or small children. You should also have a variety of sheets to go with the seasons. In the warmer months, you can use light cotton fabrics in bright colors and the colder months cozy up in some warm flannel sheets. You can also change out the bedroom curtains, throw rugs, and artwork to unify the whole look for the season.
Your bathroom can undergo a seasonal makeover too. Consider changing out the towels, floor mats, wall art, and even your toothbrush holder, soap dish, and cup. These simple little changes can have a surprisingly dramatic effect and give your eyes (and your home visitors) something new to look at and keep you from getting bored with your usual decorating scheme.
