Gone are the days when home makeovers most often mean spending big bucks, hiring interior designers and contracting carpenters head on. With the deluge of DIY supplies stores and a gazillion of design websites, one can always have a spruced up home that is picture-ready for any gathering, and you can even do it on your own!
We’ve rounded up several ideas that will sure to put a stylish stamp on your condo home no matter what your budget:
Make Your Walls Talk
Purchase shelves that you can simply hang on a blank wall to display your coin collection, pristine white vases or even your stuffed toys from days old. You can even stagger the shelves diagonally for a unique look, or paint them a different color to stand out.
Have a Statement Piece
You may have a room full of ho-hum furniture and “for giveaway” items, but if you place a statement piece right front and center, the rest will seem to fade away. In every room, choose a “wow” piece to become the focal point. Whether it be that bright pink lounge sofa you’ve been eyeing on, an intricate mirror display you found online, or a simply perfect flower arrangement, your guests will be sure to zero in on that.
Be A Colorist
Neutral walls can be frustrating for some people who need a home makeover. But don’t fret. Here’s an opportunity to add a punch of color to a key area of your space. You can stick to a two-color scheme if you’re feeling adventurous (yellow-blue, pink and white)
Buy pieces that can be converted as storage to maximize your space. Many stores nowadays offer ottmans with lift-top cushion, stackable drawers or even pile-on hangers. All you need is just a boost of creativity.
Carpets, rugs, layers – they always tend to give a touch of sophistication to any space. Choose colors that complement your walls and your furniture and you’ll never go wrong.
