What do you do when the Christmas decorations have been tucked away and you know that you are headed for the cold of winter? Considering that winter lasts roughly about three months, you need to find ways how to make your home brighter, warmer, and cozier. Here are some tips you can try.

Fresh Blooms

You know what can almost instantaneously brighten an entire room? Fresh blooms, yes, these immediately add color to any room and give it a feeling of polish and refinement. Most common choices would have to be paper white bulbs and amaryllis, buy try tulips, hyacinths, and spring bulbs are great choices as well.

Winter Decoration

Arctic Animals

If you love decorating your lawn with various animals during the summer season, there is no reason why you shouldn’t do it during winter time. However, instead of using animals like pink flamingos for example, rely on arctic animals to keep with the theme of the winter season. This means moose, penguins, snow owls, and other cold climate animals that you can think about. You do not have to stress yourself out with exact replicas, faux white fur, dark feathers, or antlers would be equally amazing. The important thing is that you have fun doing it.

Use Wool

People have a penchant for throwing away old things like sweaters once they feel they have no use for it anymore. But, did you know that these old wool clothes can be used as a great winter decoration tool? Yes, instead of throwing away, use it to decorate various items like glass votive and vases. Simply cut the sleeves off of the old wool sweaters and slip it over these items to create your own wrapped in wool winter decors.

Aromatics

When attempting to decorate a room, it would be best to try and get all the elements together. This means not only going for the look, but also the feel and smell. Aromatherapy is a great way to enhance winter decorations in your home. With the help of essential oils in a diffuser or scented candles, achieving that summertime aroma would be quite easy. Some scents to consider include orange, lemon, grapefruit, and other citrusy smell that have been known to uplift and energize people. If you want to create a more relaxed atmosphere, jasmine, clary sage, and bergamot are best to deal with stress and anxiety.

Lighting

As far as achieving the look is concerned, lighting is something you should not overlook. Changing lightbulbs to compensate for the lack of sunlight is a must. Blue or white light would be your best and closest choices in achieving false sunlight. You can also invest in dawn simulator lights, which can be used not only during winter, but essentially any time of the year. These can be put to good use during dark and cold winter mornings. The nice thing about these bulbs is that they gradually increase intensity so that in roughly 20 minutes you would think that you are waking up to the rising sun.

Winter Decoration

Mirrors

When you deal with lighting, it is always best to put in some mirrors. These would obviously add to the lighting effect that you would want to achieve for your decoration. You can target dark spaces in your home by strategically placing mirrors in the right place. Mirrors are excellent in reflexing light. Using different mirror sizes would also add to the esthetics.

Mixing Colors

Planters and Tulips

Winter planters do not mean boring and colorless, there are colorful ones as well. This is to accompany the many beautiful plants and flowers that thrive during the winter season. These planters come in various textures as well. Green, red, and white flowers would be a nice touch even when looking for a centerpiece.

Posted on: May 14th, 2018 by plumbingcorona No Comments

Are you ready to embark on the world of Do-it-Yourself (DIY) projects? Everything can look so easy when we watch experts do it, but, is it really as easy as we see it on TV? The key to becoming successful in DIY home renovations is to plan and research everything so that you can apply that knowledge to the specific project you want to do. What can you do to transform the look of your home using DIY renovations?

Home Renovations: Bigger and Brighter

Most of the time we hear people suggest painting as the way to dramatically change and improve the appearance of your home. However, if your goal is to create a bigger and brighter home, doing painting in home renovations can hardly achieve this goal. So how do you do it?

Painting can be part of the strategy, but it cannot be your entire solution. After all, painting with the right choice of color can help create the appearance of a bigger and brighter room. But the easiest way to do it would be to replace old floor coverings. This small step will dramatically improve the overall appearance of any room in your home.

The great thing about this solution is that it is considered quite affordable. You also have a huge choice of laminates, floorboards, and linoleums to replace your old floor coverings. Another benefit that comes with these is that they are all easy to install.

Once you successfully do it in one room, simply repeat the process in the other rooms in your home. So go through your entire home and remove not only the old, but also thin skirting boards. While you’re at it, make sure that you replace it with wider ones to modernize the look of your home.

Curtains and Drapes

When doing home renovations, one of the most common things that people look at is their budget. So when replacing long vertical drapes or older style curtains choose slim-line Venetians. It would also be better to invest in quality internal doors while updating your installed fittings and fixtures.

Keep in mind that if you would want to hire help, a handyman is comparatively cheaper than hiring a carpenter. Why should you consider this? Because if you are going to tackle a major DIY project and your skill level is not up to par, you will need all the help that you can get from professionals.

So if you are at this point skill-wise, make sure that you attend workshops, download brochures, or watch online videos to improve your DIY capabilities. This will help you create more savings as you get better with every project that you tackle. New DIY products being released in the market are also designed to make life easier for those who want to do home renovations on their own.

Since part of the goal is to save on your budget, when painting using gloss is better compared to satin or matte. Keeping within your available finances is one way of gauging how successful your DIY home renovations are.

Using Colors

When it comes to DIY painting projects, ample planning is needed to ensure that everything would be under consideration from the start until you finish. To help you come up with the best DIY painting job possible, here are some tips you can follow.

Modern design will also include an island as well.

Galley kitchen

Some models also put two countertops in parallel setting so there is a walkway in the middle of them. The galley kitchen is a great option if you want to make the most of every inch in your kitchen. You do not even need to figure out the corner cabinets, which mean that you can allocate your budget to other things.

L-shaped kitchen

If you want to maximize the corner space in your kitchen then the L-shaped layout will be the ultimate answer. Other than that, this is a smart decision to make a kitchen design in a kitchen with small or medium size.

By applying the L-shaped kitchen layout, you are already eliminating the traffic issue. You can even put a dining table by having this kitchen layout in your home. But if your kitchen space is larger and wider then you better not choosing this layout. Instead, you can install an island to use the emptiness of the large space for kitchen.

Horseshoe or U-shaped kitchen

This configuration has three walls for the cabinets as well as the appliances. After the development, it could also two walls with an island that will serve as the third wall. It will ease up the workflow of the island. If you like to cook a lot then it will allow you to have more about it.

Even though this feature is very functional and amazing, many homeowners do not have enough space to add this thing in their kitchen. If the space is right, it gives good look and functionality. But when you force it to present in your kitchen, your workflow will be interrupted.
