Did you think lately about getting a house makeover? Does the idea excite or frustrate you? I personally know some people who are always changing their house decoration and always bringing new ideas while I also know others that don’t change a thing and the idea of changing their house decoration makes them want to skip town.
Sometimes you get mixed feelings about redecorating your home, let’s face it not everybody is skilled and creative and the process can be so tedious, especially if the daily schedules are busy or sometimes is just the fear of others opinions. Then there are others who get excited to roll up the sleeves and get dirty with paint and plaster.
In this article and before talking about what should be done, I want to share with you a pretty cool service, which is Mapiful, it’s a service that lets you design your hometown map print, isn’t that the coolest thing ever, it’s a great way to celebrate places, preserve memories, I can think of a lot of things I can do, I can make a poster for the places I love, and write the memory using their tools to have a little note about the memory or the thing that happened in that place, and have it as a poster, it will be a great way to have that memory hanging in the living room and make people talk about it every time new ones come.
Mapiful’s website has many choices when it comes to customizing the design and fitting it into the style of the room, there’s the Classic Mapiful, which is a simple Map of the location you want, there’s the which lets you see the alignment of the stars and constellations from any location any time, and then there’s the Zodiac Mapiful, which is the star sign personalized and there’s the Text Art Mapiful to turn your photos into a piece of art.
Things have changed a lot when it comes to finding inspiration, nowadays many resources are available, Pinterest is one of my favorite places to find inspiration, the platform helps you organize your ideas in boards and suggest new ideas based on your choices and there are Vimeo and YoutTube where you can find DIY ideas in video and people are sharing all the process of how to make things so you can make your own DIY accessories and projects.
Now if you want to take things a little bit further, especially if you have a big house makeover project and you want to have the tools to do it yourself, you can always think of previewing before execution, there are some 3D conception and previewing tools that can be really helpful, like SketchUp and Ravit, the tools will help you test match the colors, check the flooring, furniture, accessories, and even the lighting.
Well then if you want the makeover without getting yourself dirty there’s always the option to hire an interior designer to decorate the house for you while you’re supervising everything. This is a good option when it comes to planning and controlling your budget since professionals can help you stay on budget since they know prices and tricks to get the look without spending too much.
One last piece of advice, When you’re ready and you decide to start decorating the interior of your house, start by picking a theme, choosing one will help you make some good decisions about the color, furniture, accessories, the moods for your rooms, the lighting and so on. You can pick one or multiple themes for different rooms and floors, there’s the Scandinavian, English Country, Medieval, Moroccan, Southwestern, Minimaliste, French Country, Victorian, etc.
