With hardly any works, you can give a new look to your home. They are not big reforms nor do they cost very expensive, but you will earn a lot. Which one do you prefer?
1. INTEGRATE THE DINING ROOM INTO THE LIVING ROOM
You’ve been thinking about it for several months and you’ve finally made up your mind! Eliminate the partition that separates the living room from the dining room and integrates both in the same space. And if you don’t want to get involved in construction work, take advantage of the generous dimensions of your living room to make it more compact and place the dining room in the opposite corner. This is how interior designer Lucía Mariñas conceived this dining room: the back sofa, a couple of armchairs, and a side table close to the living room while at the other end she has installed the dining room with a rectangular table, six chairs, and a cupboard.
2. REPLACE THE PROFILES WITH LIGHTER ONES
Since you bought the apartment you have not changed anything. In the living room, for example, you would like to have more light, that it seems larger and that the cold or heat does not leak through the windows. It may be time to replace the profiles. They are no longer worn so wide. With increasingly thin profiles and oversized blades, aesthetic appeal is assured.
3. UPDATE BEDROOM LAMPS
You are already tired of the lampshade lamps that illuminate your nightly readings in bed. You want to change them for more modern ones now that you have given your bedroom a certain Nordic air. Try some flexo type, some wall sconces, some metal tubular ceiling, fiber, or round, like this one in the image.
4. CHANGE THE COUNTERTOP WITHOUT WORK
You have a laminate countertop and you want to change it for a wooden one that adds more warmth to the kitchen. Sounds perfect to us! You will need a wooden board, jigsaw, sandpaper, varnish for food-grade countertops, a rolling pin, and special anti-mold silicone for kitchens. On YouTube, you have a lot of tutorials that will help you disassemble the old one and assemble the new one. Just remember before working to close the stopcock in the sink and disconnect the hob. You can also change the fronts of the cabinets, the floor, or the appliances.
5. GLAZE THE KITCHEN
Another of the express reforms that you can do in your house to renew its appearance is to replace the partitions of the kitchen with a glass enclosure that allows you to interconnect with the dining room and the living room. A great idea to be aware of what is happening in these spaces and watch the children, while you cook.
6. NEW BEDDING
Take advantage of the white week offered in February to renew your bedding: linen or cotton sheets, printed duvet covers, light, and tasty blankets … Choose models in neutral tones that match any style, play with different colors of the same range and you will see how elegant your bedroom is!
