Project #1 Create a Spa-Like Bathroom
Most homeowners view their main bathroom as their haven, and as people spend more time at home, this has become even more crucial. In order to establish a tranquil hideaway, home buyers are increasingly expressing a desire for luxurious bathrooms that mimic hotels.
What you may try: Upgrade the space with old rugs, art, and furnishings to give it an opulent, spa-like feel.
Project #2 Bring the Outside in
One trend is to add elements from nature throughout the home.
What you can try: Incorporate natural wood tones, and use plants as accessories. Plants are being used more as decor in bathrooms, too. They’re a beautiful connection with nature inside your home, as they help to purify the air.
Project #3 Organize the Everyday
Customers have been more interested in storage for certain needs, probably as a result of the numerous TV programs with home organization as a theme.
Try placing common household items like snacks and supplies in designated pantry containers. Additionally, make storage a visual element by using containers with eye-catching colors and patterns that go with the overall design.
Project #4 Paint to Brighten
When determining how to brighten up a home, painting is always the first thing that springs to mind, and it is a straightforward DIY project.
What you can try: Painting the ceiling, sometimes known as the fifth wall, is a creative and entertaining idea. Although frequently overlooked, the ceiling can actually add intrigue to a space. Shay suggests Tricorn Black or Peppercorn from Sherwin Williams for the ceiling.
Project #5 Accessorize Your Space
Makeover a room that is a chilly, empty canvas with your particular touches. A home can be made more individualized, cozy, and focus-grabbing with the addition of accessories.
Must Try: Through decorative accents like pillows, vases, or plants, you may add color to a space. These may be readily changed out throughout the seasons to make a significant visual impact and are available at almost any home or discount store. Another option to use strong colors that have a significant impact on the room's appearance is through draperies. They add color and texture and can influence the room's ambiance. Another imaginative approach to bring color to a space is through art, whether it be made or bought. For instance, you could make a wall out of framed images you've taken over the years or pieces of art you've amassed. This will help your home get character and interest.
5 Additional PRO TIP:
TIP #1: Painted Accent Wall
An accent wall is a great way to add some color and personality to a room without breaking the bank. You can either paint an entire wall or just create a design with painters tape. This project is simple and easy to do, but it will make a big impact in any room!
TIP #2: Wallpaper
Wallpaper is another great way to add some personality to your home. You can find wallpaper for any room in your house, and it's a relatively easy project to install. Just be sure to measure your walls before you purchase the wallpaper so you know how much you need!
TIP #3: New Hardware
One easy way to update your home is by changing out the hardware on cabinets and doors. This is a quick and easy project that will make a big impact in any room! Just be sure to choose hardware that compliments the style of your home.
TIP #4: Curtains
Curtains are a great way to add some color and personality to a room. They are also great for hiding any imperfections in your walls! Just be sure to measure your windows before you purchase the curtains so you know how much you need.
TIP #5: Area Rug
An area rug is a great way to add some color and personality to a room. It's also a great way to protect your floors from wear and tear! Just be sure to measure your room before you purchase the rug so you know how much you need.
