2020 was actually a good year. Was it? You may ask. On the one hand, the world faced an unprecedented modern pandemic with lockdowns and restrictions. On the other hand, a lot of people had free time to think about things that they usually didn’t have time to remember. Being locked in one space for a longer period than you were used to could have made you notice that your apartment or home required some improvements. Even the appliances like refrigerators need to be at r22 pressure for better utilization. That’s right, as humanity slowly steps out of the pandemic, many think about ways to refresh their surroundings and leave old things in the old year. Hence, below are some trendy ideas that you can use to improve your living space without having to renovate it every other year.

Play the Window Game

Windows give you a window of opportunity to experiment and exercise your creativity. Why? The reason is that there are so many options for playing the window game. You can redesign the frames by changing their material or color. Be aware, we are not talking about the ac moore poster frames. As for the latter, what about coloring it yourself? It can be a family-building activity involving your partner or kids. Also, what about adding some shades of light and dark by placing window shutters? They can help you adjust the room lighting and ensure regulated privacy. The best thing about shutters is that you can easily install them yourself and choose between external or internal locations.

Remember Your Paints

Once a painter, always a painter. You may think that painting requires the talent of a prodigy and the eye of a jeweller. For professional painters, it does, but for wall-painting it doesn’t. Refreshing the coat of paint can reshape your reality as each color tells its story. Pastel colors, like beige, white or gray, can help your small rooms look bigger, while dark colors, like deep blue or purple, add more drama and intensity to your living spaces. Don’t forget that you also have the option to paint your brick walls or even install a faux brick wall! These two options are up to the minute now and can enhance the appearance of your living room or bedrooms.

Add Some Flowers

Try to remember movies about fashion, luxury lifestyle, or design. The chances are high that you will recall flowers in the homes or hotels where the leading actors lived or stayed. That is because there is something unique, magical, and simple about flowers; they just boost up the feel of every space.  Moreover, stunning flower bouquets effortlessly enhance the ambiance of any space.​​​​​​​ Choosing the right flowers should be based on several factors. First, opt for the species you prefer. Second, try to think of the variety of that species that fits the coloring and atmosphere of your home. For example, you may choose roses, but red ones wouldn’t go with beige as much as white or yellow roses.

Install Synthetic Turf

The pandemic made people realize that they were missing out on one crucial thing – quality time with their family. Working 24/7, sometimes even at home, many had a chance to finally sit around a dining table after a long period of eating out or dining alone. For this reason, one thing you should consider is installing a putting green or synthetic turf in your backyard. This can serve both recreational and professional purposes. You can organize family gatherings here or design it as a small playground for children. On the other hand, your children may want to learn to golf, or if someone in your family is already into golf, this would be an excellent way to practice. The advantage of choosing synthetic options is that they require almost no maintenance, cost you no water bills, and serve you for years to come.

The Last Piece of Advice

The list above is just a guide that you can adjust to your situation. Each home and family is different, and you know much better what would suit and compliment the atmosphere you want to create. For example, some homes may benefit from a stand out new sofa from Sofa Club, while others could do with a few ornaments to make all of the difference.

The last piece of advice is always to try to find something truly yours, without trying to copy what others do. The best thing you can surround yourself with is your creativity and the craftsmanship built on that skill. Just make sure you give your ideas a chance to reshape your reality and add colours to it.
