Congratulations! You’ve finally made it, the next milestone in your life. You’ve bought your new home in the best place in Colorado! An epic adventure awaits. You’re about to start a family and you have the perfect place to watch your kids grow. However, now that you’ve purchased your new home – nowhere does it really speak volumes about you. You feel the immense urge to somewhat personalize the place. A familiar notion, as many new homeowners experience this urge. How to address it? There are a few DIY home redecoration things you could do to make this place ‘smell like’ you.
Since you’ve already spent a fortune to get the place, you really don’t feel like spending another fortune out of the bag. Which is understandable. This article will cover some budget DIY home redecoration tips you could do in order to turn your new home into your home.
Oh, and don’t forget to have fun while doing this. You could even turn it into a family project, so everyone can have fun putting some initial stamps in the place!
DIY Home Redecoration – Pain
Even painting can somewhat prove to be expensive. Now, this depends on the budget you have set for yourself. If your budget allows for two cans of 30 bucks worth of paint, then this will be the way to go.
This is both cheap and fun. You can get the entire family involved, and you even might get freaky with some fun colors. Grab some paint brushes, grab your favorite color and go crazy! One afternoon later, your home will be far more personalized than it was when you first got it.
On the other side, if your budget is so limited you can always move to painting an accent wall. It will be as impactful as the previously mentioned paint, but it will cost far less. The only limitation is that you need to paint over walls that have previously been painted, so you won’t be able to make an impact on a plain drywall.
Dump the Things You Don’t Like
Before you get into redecorating the place, make one solid round of the new home. Try to spot everything that ‘doesn’t fit’. You will be amazed at how many items that are currently in there just don’t fit your vision of the place. Remember, this is now your home, and you get to decide what goes in and what stays.
There could be some warn or damaged items that entirely destroy the vibe of the place. If they are non-essential items, you should feel completely free to toss them out. This will give your home a fresh, clean slate and a fresh start. Doing something as simple as taking off the old blinders might give your home an entirely different look.
Talk With your Family and Friends
Three heads are always better than one. You are trying to personalize your home, and this stands. However, your friends and family know a lot about you. Invite them over for lunch or dinner, and pick their brain. Maybe they will have ideas about something you can change, on your own, that you wouldn’t normally think of.
Additionally, they might have some furniture or decorations that they are willing to get rid off. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure! This is an absolutely free way for you to bring something new into your home. If this is not DIY home redecoration, I don’t know what is!
Visit Second Hand, Thrift and Consignment Stores
You will be amazed at what you may find, for almost no money at all. This is how I bought my reading sofa years ago, for 20 dollars. I still use it, and its perfect. It is warm. And it most certainly is cozy. But most importantly, it is me. It screams me. And this makes it perfect.
So there you have it, a very simple, cheap change that makes all the difference.
Indulge in Frames and Wall Art
There is one cool way you can personalize your place during DIY home redecoration. If you have a friend or an acquaintance that can draw, all you need is a few pieces of canvas or a few spray paint cans. And, if you choose to sell your home in the future, expenses of the renovation will be less, as you will have unique painted walls.
Graffiti is art that I highly enjoy, but if it is a bit too extreme for you, a canvas is always an answer as well. Be it graffiti, or a new painting, it can entirely depict your personality. And this can all cost you no more than 15 bucks. However, the impact it will make is going to be drastic!
Chose your Lightning Wisely
The lightning can make an absolute transformation of your home. You will be amazed at how big of a difference this makes. It can affect the mod and the scheme, and it could fully complement the theme you wanted your home to have.
DIY home redecoration can be bolstered by several levels with the appropriate lighting. You can take a look at any mismatched table lamps, and you could simply replace the head of it with something stylish. Such parts can be also found in second-hand shops, and you might get them for less than 10 bucks.
Find a Student Designer
If you wish to redecorate, and you feel like the place could be different – but you don’t know what to do – find a student designer. This will be a creative young soul that is very affordable. This young individual is probably full of amazing ideas, and for some pocket money, you will have someone knowledgeable to help you. If you are having a problem finding one, you can always ask good Colorado realtors to give you some contacts.
You would communicate your desires to this individual, and he or she will give you some cool ideas in return. Based on these ideas, you might end up creating your perfect home without spending too much money!
