Can't afford all the remodels you want? Do you really want to change your interior style, but you don't have the budget for all the new furniture, flooring, cabinets, and decorations you would like? Even if you don't have the budget to make all of your dream remodels right now, there are still some smart and fun ways that you can effectively upgrade your interior.
A New Paint Job Changes A Lot
Simply painting your walls is always going to be one of the most affordable and rewarding interior upgrades. The color on your walls can greatly inform the style of any room. When you change the color, you are also changing the contrast. Painting a new color on your walls can bring out existing colors in the room. For instance, a splash of blue on the wall could bring out some of the blue detail on a random area rug. Basically, if you choose a nice new wall color, you might fall back in love with some of that old furniture and decor around your room.
Find a Complementary Color
There are no set rules for choosing a paint color, but it is always helpful if you find something that coordinates well with your existing color schemes. For example, if you have all true white furniture with a very modern styling, you wouldn't want to paint your walls beige. It is a warm color that would look out of place next to all the white. A bold primary color or even just a new coat of white could really make the room pop.
Also, you should avoid painting your walls the same exact color as your furniture, rugs, and fabrics throughout the room. For example, if you have a Persian rug that has red as the base color, you probably don't want that same red as your wall color. But, if you look at some of the detail colors, it could be fun to pick one out and paint it on your wall. If you have that color in your wall, it'll make that color on the rug really pop.
Smart homeowners will consider their existing style and color schemes before they simply walk in to paint store and choose a color. You should always get some sample paint for any colors you are considering. Once the paint is applied in the room, under your lighting, and next to your furniture, your opinion might change (for better or worse).
