Happy New Year! Let us start the New Year right by thinking right … Think Positive!
Do-it-yourself interior designing projects seem complicated, especially for people who believe that they are not creative. It’s tough to decide where to begin. But since we must start the New Year right, let’s think positive. We can succeed in our do-it-yourself interior designing project.
If you are just starting a do-it-yourself interior designing project, the easiest and simplest project will be re-painting. Paint gives a fresh look and it can completely change the mood in your environment. Color plays an important part in creating the mood of a room. White ceilings create a spacious feel, light colors create freshness, warm accent colors can create a cozy look.
Paint also brings out your individual style in the space and it is an inexpensive way to begin redesigning your home. If you want to make a big impact in a room, try adding a bold color to just one wall for maximum impact. If you do not want something dramatic, you can choose basic colors and accentuate with dark colors. If you are a late riser who enjoys darkness in the bedroom during the day, consider painting your walls a semi-dark shade and complementing them with drapes that are one shade lighter. This provides a well-coordinated contrast in color as opposed to the clashing look of light walls with dark curtains.
Start small by painting a room until you get comfortable with your project and build confidence to re-paint your whole house. To help you decide on what colors to use for your re-painting project, browse through the internet and home magazines for inspiration. Now that you have an idea of the colors to use, paint your wall with different color swatches. The swatches should be large enough to be able to compare with one another. Let the paint dry before making a choice because a wet paint will have a different color shade than a dried paint.
Before applying the paint, make sure you are aware of how to do it. This may sound like common sense, but if you are not aware of the quality of your paint, how to apply it properly, and how much you need, you could make a mess or lose a lot of money. Make sure you are aware of the surface preparation (http://builderschoice.ph/products/premium-latex-paints) or what you must do to the substrate or surface or basically your wall prior to painting.
Do-it-yourself interior designing is not as complicated as it sounds. You just need to have the desire to create and make a change, make a plan and stick to it, and above all else think positive. Enjoy the New Year, enjoy planning your home’s new look and all the best in your project.
