If you’re looking for easy home improvements, the best way to start over is with a clean canvas and the simplicity of a pure design. These can include modern designs, shabby chic designs, southern and even rustic. Keeping redecorating simple will save you cash and will be the least invasive way to restore the beauty of your home, which after being enhanced, will escalate the property’s worth. Washing everything down and stepping away with a fresh eye will be the very first step in decorating and improving your house yourself.

To get started, toss every Knick knack, random piece of art and supplies into a corner. Make sure that your living room is empty of clutter and reexamine the room as if you are a new tenant. As a new tenant, you are able to envision the internal structure as well as assess the best geometry in the furniture design. Because you’ve already seen how your current linkup looks, removing the clutter will ultimately help you see the empty house as it was when you first purchased it, allowing for easy improvement. You may see a whole new setup, a new way to arrange your current belongings into a larger and more efficient living space. Doing it yourself just involves a clean perspective and the will to put aside all of the decorations and clutter.

Simple designs can be purchased for cheap, and can make a house feel and look bigger. The only downside to simple designs is that they are more prone to show wear, dirt and blemishes as a result of color being uniform. Offsetting throw-pillows, drapery and textured appearing rugs can add detail while covering areas that appear unsavory to the eye. Improving by being minimalistic is perhaps the simplest way to redecorate. Many modern homes are simple, and they are easy to clean and maintain, an advantage if one ever wants to decorate more or start all over, If going for a simple or minimalistic design, make sure that you have furniture that is clean and void of heavy or tacky patterns. To fix this yourself, head to a store like Bloomingdales or a consignment shop to find a couch cover.

Minimalistic improvements can include simple taper candles, a vase with fresh flowers or a stack of old books. Getting rid (or hiding) cords and unnecessary clutter will instantly brighten, lighten and enlarge your home’s living spaces. Shabby chic is a perfect example of this type of design, and it is often regarded as clean and timeless. Many shabby chic decorators stick to colors like white, beige and neutral colors. Some opt for cool or warm colors, while vibrant colors are seldom used for this design. For modern simplicity, bright accents and colors are used often, but these rooms are almost always minimalistic down to the walls, with many flats being barren of art or composed of brick for an urban look. DIY involves research, and checking out magazines and websites like Pinterest are fantastic for a little inspiration for home improvement.

Rustic designing can also be minimalistic, and is another way of rejuvenating a home with little effort. To do it yourself, go with dark and neural colors. Warm colors work too, but for vibrant colors, they should always be subdued. Most rustic designs center on old western styles, and bright colors and modern furniture clashes. Improvements can be made by touching up dirty wall spots, cleaning and oiling woodwork and replacing tacky decorations. Rustic rejuvenation requires an eye for style, as this type of DIY is slightly more complex. No stressing though, the design is still easy to create and minimalistic. If doing it yourself seems hopeless, use resources like magazines and the internet to your advantage, Improvements are a part of life and the resources are endless.

While many don’t want to put away their fun Knick knacks, tissue paper holders and junk drawers, improvements can be made by simply cleaning and switching dirty and unfashionable furniture out. There are an endless amount of stores that cater to all designs, and for DIY shoppers who are low on funds, there are always garage sales, estate sales and thrift stores. Improving your home and its living space can all be done by you, and best of all, the benefits will only continue to affect your family’s prosperity.
