Swallowing Sawdust – Tips for Making Your Renovations Feel Finished


Having renovation work done in your house can be stressful and you’ll be happy when the work is finally coming to an end. It is impossible to live normally while work is going on at home as people are coming and going all the time, disrupting your daily routine. However, now the work is finally over, you can start deciding how to decorate it and make everything feel truly finished.

You may choose to add new curtains or roller blinds to your windows to give them a new lease of life. Or maybe you’ll change the tiling in your kitchen or bathroom or add a new splash of colour to your newly renovated home with some bright, vibrant paint colours. There are plenty of ways in which you can make your home look smart and elegant no matter what your budget is.

Let’s take a look at some simple ways that you can decorate your newly renovated home to make it look stylish and homely.

Choosing New Paint Colours

Choosing what colour to paint your walls can be a big decision and is often one of the  most difficult that most homeowners face when it comes to decorating. There are so many shades of so many different colours that it can often be an overwhelming choice to make. You need to be sure that the colour you choose will complement everything else in the room. If you are using your old furniture, it will be a little easier, but if you plan to buy new furniture, you will need to decide on a colour scheme before you start doing anything. Take some time to decide on a colour scheme you like and begin by buying a few key pieces of furniture, from there the room will begin to take shape and you add artwork and other flourishes to add to the overall look.

Curtains And Blinds

Without any sort of dressing at your windows, a room will look unfinished. There are many different options to choose from, different ways to hang your curtains, styles of blinds to choose from and a range of fabrics and colours from which to select the perfect addition to your windows.

When making your decision, be sure to consider the room, how much natural light there is and how much of an impact you want your window dressings to have on the overall look. For example. blinds look great in kitchens and bathrooms as they are slick and don’t look cluttered around the window. Curtains, on the other hand, look great in bedrooms and living rooms and can really add to the overall appearance of the room, depending on the style you go for.

Utilise Lighting

Lighting can add a lot of elegance and atmosphere to a room. However, more than setting a mood, the right lighting can also be highly-functional and help you create areas of separation, especially in larger rooms. Different types of lighting work well in different rooms and you can make lighting a real feature using bold lampshades and lighting fixtures. Remember to mix it up, don’t only have a ceiling light, utilise table and floor lamps as well. Let your imagination run wild.

Kitchen And Bathroom Tiles

Tiles look clean and cool, but choosing which ones to buy can be daunting. The selection is simply staggering nowadays but rather than being overwhelmed you should try and relish in the options available to you. Keep your bathroom fixtures in mind as you consider the options. Be bold and creative, look at both patterned and plain and be open to the idea of choosing something unique and different. Your tiles can be a real talking point in a kitchen and since people don’t spend as much time in bathrooms, this is one room in your home that you can really afford to let your creative juices flow.  

Finish Your New-Look Home With Style

Now that the renovations are over and the hard work is done, you can let your creative side loose and put your stamp on your newly renovated home. Be bold and daring in your colour choices for paint and tiles and choose lighting that will bring a sense of atmosphere to the new look of your home. With the right touches, your home will be a place you will enjoy spending time in and feel comfortable for many years to come.
