Redecorating different parts of your home can add energy and revitalise its appearance. Painting is one of the best ways to improve the look of your home. Painting your front door a fun, glossy colour can really set a great first impression for any future house guests! You should also consider having your interior walls painted with light and neutral colours. This will give a fresh, pleasant look to your home. This job can be done DIY and it would save you on labour costs but hiring a professional can guarantee accuracy and a high-quality finish.
New floorboards, whether carpet, timber, laminate, vinyl or otherwise can add flare to your home’s rooms. This can be a complicated job so unless you are confident and sure of what is involved, it’s best to hire a professional joiner to fit new flooring. Plastering and skimming is another great way to improve the aesthetic of your home. Plastering work by a professional tends to cost several hundred pounds. The exact cost will vary depending on the nature of the work, ranging from small patch repairs to 2 whole rooms being replastered. Wall skimming costs on the other hand will land about £150 to £200 for a single wall. You can perform this job by yourself if you wish but a professional can achieve a high quality finish that is very difficult for a DIY enthusiast to achieve.
Hanging a minimum of one mirror in every room can add character to your property. Since they bounce light around the room, they can brighten up each space in your home. They should be installed perpendicular to windows to prevent light simply bouncing off them and reflecting straight outside. This is the sort of job that can be performed DIY. Hiring a professional for this type of work would likely just be a waste of money unless you have mobility issues. Even then, you should consider asking a friend, family member or neighbour to help out. The same applies to hanging scale artwork to your walls. If you choose to redecorate your home in this way, they should be hung such that the middle of the piece is at eye level.
The redecorating ideas mentioned in this article are just a few possibilities of many. Others include decluttering, adding rugs, rearranging furniture and adding decorative items to different rooms throughout your house, especially your home’s entryway.
