Whether you live in a house, apartment, trailer, motor home, or otherwise, it is the one place that is all your own. So, it is only natural that you want it to not just look great, but also feel great. Sometimes, looking and feeling great requires some changes from time to time. But we do not always have the luxury of a big budget to make those changes required to achieve the new desired look and feel. Here are some simple tricks to change up your living space to enjoy something new.

How to Get Started with Your Home Makeover

Getting started with your home makeover can often be the toughest part. It can be a challenge deciding where to start. Therefore, you may find it helpful to take a survey of your home and decide which elements you like best and would never get rid of or replace. With your favorite elements established, you can then start planning your living space changes around those favorite elements.

For example, if you have a favorite piece of furniture, such as your classic easy chair or sectional couch that you would never part with, looking for accessories and design elements that you can implement that would provide a nice complement to those favorite pieces.

As an example, let us say you have a richly leathered couch or easy chair. Or, perhaps you have a wood stained finished bookshelf in your living room. If that is the case, then you may like the way stained glass window film complements those darker, more luxurious looking pieces in your home.

Alternatively, if your home features lighter colors, or more playful pieces of furniture and décor, then you might want to consider etched glass decals. These will successfully help maintain your current theme, helping to emphasize a lighter, almost playful, but still classical look and feel.

Cost Effective Method to Replace Furniture without Replacing It

Does any of your furniture have holes, rips, or unsightly fading? If so, you might not have the budget to completely replace them. And even if you have the room in your budget for replacements, we all know how nice it feels to settle down in your favorite chair or couch, molded to your form from years of comfortable lounging, causing you to not want to replace it. If this scenario sounds familiar, then you may consider looking into slip covers.

These covers provide a very cost effective alternative to complete furniture replacements. And since there is such a variety of slip covers available, it is very easy to find cover that will either match your current interior décor, or allow you to try something completely new such as fun and totally new accent pieces to set off the other pieces in your home. With any style of slip cover to choose from, you will find it easy to find a complementary window film. For example, you might like the way textured window film looks with your new slip cover.
