Even if you aren’t a materialistic person, you want your home to put its best foot forward when entertaining guests. You want to relax and unwind in a space that speaks to who you are and invites you in. Whether you live in a mansion, an apartment, a double-wide, or a tiny bungalow, there are many things that you can do to add a wow factor to your residence.
Shine a Light On It
Unless you are recluse, it’s probably safe to assume you don’t like sitting around in the dark. Perhaps your home is not naturally lit with skylights or big picture windows. From high-end residential lighting to well-placed accent lamps, giving your lighting purpose can really show your space well. Directing your light to highlight or acknowledge key features in a room or classic pieces of furniture can bring attention to the more iconic features of your home.
Position Your Furniture Efficiently
If you are a minimalist, you might not have spare pieces of furniture cluttering up your room or invading your design. However, you may some family heirlooms that you just can’t get rid of but yet they seem to have no purpose. Why not turn them into a statement piece that is both functional and yet eye-catching? By restoring furniture pieces, you add new life while keeping the memories or sentiment that they hold.
Don’t be Afraid of Color
Even if the above ideas seem out of reach, adding a pop of color can really change the look of a home. It might be in the form of accent pillow or accessories, but you can even choose a bold design for artwork, flooring, furniture or wall coverings. Adding color is a budget-friendly way to make a statement.
Your home should reflect your lifestyle. Whatever you decide to do, make it a place where you are refreshed, invigorated, and motivated to enjoy life.
