After a gruelling and cold winter months, springs and summers in Connecticut usually mean cleaning and redecorations at home. While some opt for subtle touches by adding new furniture or decor, most usually choose to go for a totally new look through living room or kitchen renovations. You can also choose to repaint your walls for different ambience in the interiors of your home.
To achieve a fresh new look in your home, courant.com offers some tips to help homeowners redecorate their homes – not just for springs and summers, but throughout the year:
Some people like spring to spring inside their house, as well as outside. And why not accommodate summer, fall and winter? According to Washington designer Annie Elliott, the changing seasons allow homeowners to “shake things up, to take a fresh look at your house, move pieces from room to room and maybe add something new you’ve picked up.”
We tapped Elliott to demonstrate these possibilities in a Chevy Chase, Md., family room that she decorated for lawyers Ada Fernandez Johnson and Mike Johnson and their three children. The designer’s company, Bossy Color, specializes in helping homeowners overcome their fear of bright and bold.
“I encourage people to buy what they love — a funky lamp, a quirky sculpture — and use that as the starting point for personalizing a room,” she says.
As for the exteriors, curb appeal is what matters the most. If you are looking to enhance your home’s attractiveness, you can start by cleaning your front lawn and start growing colorful plants in your garden. Installing new house address numbers, new entry door, and erecting new mailbox also makes your home more inviting and great looking.
And because your roofing can account for up to 40% of your home’s curb appeal, you should also consider restoring or installing new roofs to attain that fresh new look you’re aiming for. Your roofing in Norwalk CT, for instance can be replaced with a stylishly versatile roof that would be able to complement however you decide to decorate your home.
