Here are our favourite 3 ways to give a fresh new look to your home for 2018.
Well, it’s been a huge year of renovation projects for Allscale Brushworx this year and lately I have been asked time and time again about how to give a fresh new look to the home without too much expense, so here are our favourites that are not only inexpensive but fun DIY projects you can do in the weekend.
1. Adding Contrasting Colours
There are many ways to add contrasting colours to a room, here are a few great ideas!
Paint one feature wall in a light grey tone and add contrast with a bright floor rug, colourful cushions on the couch, bright green living plants or exciting bright art work with well-placed lighting. Another simple in-expensive way to add a pop of colour is with a colourful throw.
Just these small changes can make such a huge difference and won’t break the bank!
See how the lighting gives a beautiful sense of warmth!
Strategically placed lights, above artwork can throw off a beautiful warming colour around the room. Choose one or two areas to highlight; it could be above artwork or above a flower arrangement. Here’s a great example of how lighting can make the room feel warm!
Another easy peasy idea! Here’s a classic example of adding colour with a throw!
2. How’s your kitchen looking? Give it the WOW factor!
Is it time to modernise the kitchen but still keep in budget? Well, here is probably one of the easiest ways to change the whole look of your cabinets.
It’s as simple as a new fresh paint job on the cupboards and new handles. Take a look at how this kitchen has been transformed with just some white paint. It really has WOW factor now doesn’t it?
3. Spruce up your exterior!
Now that we have the interior under control and looking amazing, let’s take a look at outdoors!
Being the first thing that people see, you don’t want to forget to update and refresh the exterior of your home too.
Simple ways to add that ‘new look’ to your exterior is simply to freshen up the paintwork, trim back the hedges and tidy up the gardens and edges. Yes, it’s a few weekends work but it makes such an enormous difference to the look and feel of your home.
If you aren’t comfortable attempting the painting or simply don’t have the time, you can always contact your local Brisbane painting company to help you with it. Contact us for a free estimate, you’ll be delighted with the results.
