If you’re stuck at home at the beginning of 2031 due to lockdown or furlough, you may have more time on your hands than you expected. It can be boring at first until you realize it’s the perfect opportunity to revise your home interior – the way you’ve meant to for years. It’s time to get creative with your living space and make the most of winter 2021.
Update the Stairs
The year 2021 is all about updating the existing furniture and spaces in your home to give them new character and style. It’s easy to forget about the stair in your home, but a little innovation can go a long way.
First consider the overall idea of your home renovation project. Are you going for that natural look, or something more stand-out creative. Consider carpets, flooring, or paint to freshen up the look and feel of your staircase and blend with the home’s theme.
Update Your Furniture
With the world still in lockdown and social distancing an issue, it’s become more difficult to find new pieces of furniture to liven up your home. Still, it doesn’t mean we can’t use other means and get creative. Updating your furniture and finding replacement windows and sliding doors is currently trending.
Do you have an IKEA piece or a tired looking unit you wonder what to do with? You can find some nice color template ideas online and give it a link of color and style instead. Cupboards, units, chairs, and wardrobes can all benefit from this creative solution.
Stencil Floor Tiles
If you have plain floor tiles in the bathroom or kitchen you have an opportunity to express your creativity with them and bring them to life. A myriad of patterns and colors can be used to give the room a new energy without any significant investment.
Choose your stencil pattern from an online template or make your own. Clean the tiles and allow them to dry, then paint them with a base color – usually white. Place your stencil on the tiles and fix it with masking tape. Use a roller to apply new paint and fix with varnish.
Create a Table Feature
A seasonal centerpiece might still appeal to you since you can go for a nature walk and collect bits and pieces that can bring something of the season and the natural world into your home. Still, it’s a bit of a dated idea and you might be better channeling that creativity into a new idea.
Instead of a centerpiece why not create a table feature that overhangs your table. It could be a branch you’ve found on your lockdown nature walk that is the perfect complement to the season. Decorate it with other nature items like berries and leaves.
Paint a Mural
With lockdown in full swing once again there is plenty of time and opportunity to re-envision a room in your home and turn your creative talents to an exciting new project. Why not choose a room you think has potential and give it a theme.
Even if you have a great idea for the project don’t dive in right away. Take some time to research online the various techniques needed to make it a success. You will find many useful techniques online for painting murals that will guarantee the success of your project.
