Ideas for a total home makeover

Giving the house a makeover is a highly recommended task as it allows you to freshen up the rooms and use your personal taste to become creative. Constantly falling in love with one's own house is not difficult or impossible, nor does it take a major change or a large budget. Even the smallest details can give the home a new look, with positive energies that reverberate in personal harmony.

All aspects must be taken into account: the colour of the walls, the upholstery of a headboard and the final appearance of the furniture, which can range from patina techniques to the very lustrous wood. It is then possible to find ways of achieving these small great changes from one's own work, with which it is possible to improve and renew the appearance of the home.

There was a time when wooden furniture, especially the old ones, were not given importance and had to be painted. With the creation of synthetic materials, the use of natural wood became more scarce and, therefore, more valuable. Restoring these materials, which often respond to true artisan pieces, is a possibility. Using a paint remover, sanding the surfaces and enhancing the natural colours with varnish, can, within a few days, increase the value of a piece of furniture.

Mirrors are elements to keep in mind. They make the spaces look bigger and lighter. Renewing the mirrors' wooden frames by following the procedures of the previous recommendation, replacing them, or changing the glass itself (which is often oval and deformed), helps to make the environment look different. The compositions of mirrors will also make the rooms look brighter. Nowadays, LEDs are mainly used as a source of lighting. It is always important to be aware of the sun, because if it directly reflects the light, it can have a very intense effect. The mirrors inside the cabinets are very useful to experiment with and see how they look in any occasion.

The importance of the bedroom should not be underestimated. This is the room where we take a rest and, therefore, should not be left out. A breath of fresh air in the bedroom means the best energy at bedtime. Renovating the headboard can be very important and it is something that is available to anyone. The possibility of making sheath with linen or cotton (the most recommended for sleeping), we can play with different designs and colours.
