Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could bring furniture back to life? Well, I have great news for you! There are so many ways to change the look of your furniture to give it a fresh, new, and vibrant look. Here are some helpful tips that you can utilize to transform your furniture into whatever your heart desires:
Tip 1: Determine what aspect of your furniture needs to freshen up
Before changing up your furniture, you have to get a good sense of what exactly needs to be altered. Ask yourself the following questions: “Do I like the colour? Does the furniture have any scratches or visible cracks? Does the furniture fit well with the room? Do I like the style? Are there any stains?” Once you have a clear sense of what needs to be fixed, you can now solely focus your attention on that.
Tip 2: Paint the furniture a new colour
Oftentimes, all an old piece of furniture needs is a fresh new coat of paint. The colour of something can completely alter its appearance. Don’t be shy to experiment! I recommend going to the store in person and observing the different colours available to see which one really resonates with you. Remember when to wear proper safety equipment, including chemical-resistant gloves, when painting.
Tip 3: Improve your hardware
A great affordable way to improve your furniture is to upgrade the hardware. For instance, for your doors, you can install new stainless-steel knobs or door handles. Even such a slight change will make the world of a difference.
Tip 4: Add or change the cushions of your chairs
An excellent way to elevate the chairs in your home is to add cushions to them. This not only adds style, but it makes the chairs a lot more comfortable and fun. Moreover, if you already have cushions on your chairs, consider changing them as that will give the chairs a completely different look.
Tip 5: Add plants to your home
If you feel like your furniture gives the room a dark and dull appearance, consider adding some plants to your home. Plants give life to the room and make the house more vibrant and pretty. I recommend buying artificial plants as they give the same appearance as regular plants, but they don’t require any care and will last a very long time.
Tip 6: Add mirrors
Like with the plants, adding mirrors to a room can fill up the empty spots on the walls and make the room feel less empty. Nowadays, mirrors come in countless shapes and sizes, so pick something unique that will make the guests stop and look at themselves in the mirror.
Tip 7: Add a tablecloth to your tables
If your table is scratched and has a poor overall appearance, consider adding a tablecloth. A new cloth will give the table a completely different appearance and will hide all the imperfections.
These are just some tips and suggestions of what you can do to your room and furniture to give it a new look. However, don’t be afraid to try something else and experiment to see what best suits your needs and your home!
