I didn’t want to beleive it when i read it in an article that psychologists claim this:
“Changing your surroundings ( colors, objects, positions ) changes the way you look at life. For example, painting your walls green will give you a sense of security.”
So in this article, we are going to see some ways in which you can improve the overall look in your home. Remember that doing these changes will give a feeling of overall improvement and freshness both to your family and your lovely guests which will notice and praise you for the changes you have done this autumn.
So here are the ways you can improve:
1. Paint your front door. It will sound unnecesarry and unnoticable to you but this is the first thing that people see when they are the front of your house. “Do not be affraid to go nuts with the colors” might be the motto here, my favourite door colour is currently cerise pink. Strong, bright colours in full gloss are popular at the moment but if you are the guy that does not like attracting much attention you can go with minimalistic but stylish colors. Another idea here is to have your front door painted in a painting or a cool color splatter.
2. Invest in good quality door furniture. “Cash out an extra £100 to get the good things,” Beeny says. “Cheap generally will look cheap to others.” Try to select furniture in keeping around your property; big Victoriana knockers and letter boxes will look tasteless unless your home is Victorian itself. What we are trying to say is that always try to match your house type wit hthe furniture of the door. Now we know that you wont attach a victoriana knocker to your apartment house ( that would be hilarious ) but read some furniture articles to get an idea of what will look good.
3. Proper Lighting is important, placed either on the side of the front door to add symmetry, or a lantern in a portico entrance, says Alex Michelin, of swanky London developers Finchatton. Don’t be afraid to try out lights in situ before you commit; if they’re too big or too ornate they can look brash. If your property is approached via a garden, light it sensitively. “Good garden lighting is unseen,” Beeny says. Hide lights in the trees or conceal them in the garden location or drive.
6. Windows look ugly when they are unclean, so make sure yours are cleaned regularly. Rotten window frames are also unacceptable and if you’re putting in new ones, make sure they are appropriate with the design of the rest of the house. “The position of the glazing bars is massively important,” Beeny says. “And don’t feel you have to paint them white. They look great in lots of different colours from stone to dark green to black.” Bear in mind the colour of the brick/stone work before choosing a colour though. Finally, all curtain linings and blinds should match when seen from the street or driveway.
Thanks for the read and keep being awesome!
