Make It Your Space!
Buying a new space or remodeling the old to new can be a difficult task. Many are overwhelmed by the fact that you can create so many different things in just one space, so where to start? Well for beginners, you need to decide what you would like to get out of the space. Some would prefer to get the most use out of an area while others would just like an artistic mural.
No matter which you are, this is the place for you. Say you have a basement that you would like to remodel but don’t know what to do with it. If you have children who have been bugging you for a space of their own then I recommend constructing this in your space. You can take a simple unused room and create a space for your children to play with their friends while still being able to keep an eye on them. A great idea is to make bunk beds with their own little space like the picture below. The kids will love that they get their own bed rather than having to sleep on the ground and it may even make them want to go to bed earlier than usual so you can have your night quit and worry free because you know your kids are safe and having an amazing time.
If you are expecting but don’t want to go with the traditional blue and pink colors, try going with a very neutral palette such as browns and grays. These colors create a warm and comforting feeling. If you are daring enough, you could also incorporate a bright color such as turquoise or orange to stimulate the room and put a new modern twist on the traditional.
Looking for some art to put in your home but doesn’t want to spend an arm and a leg? One word, painters tape. There are so many different ways to create a piece of art that looks expensive but really took no time at all. One way is to paint a canvas whatever color you like (in this case, gray white and brown). Choose your lightest color first and paint the whole canvas that color. Then place the painters tape whatever design you choose, paint over that with the darker color (remember that where the tape is, is where your light color will show up). If you would like to add a rustic feeling, take a medium color and paint the edges with a dry brush. Make sure to wait every step until the paint is completely dry.
Another amazing idea if you don’t want to spend the money on a canvas is to simply paint your wall. An accent wall can do a lot to your room but have you ever thought to paint it with two different finishes. First start out by painting the wall a matte color and then paint the design in the same color but make sure it is a glossy version. The results are stunning.
There are so many ways to make a home something that makes you happy every time you see it. Wither it is a functional room or a simple room with an amazing piece of art, you will be happy with the space you created and if you aren’t, simply start over!
