Makeover 101: New Year, New Living Room

So your Bangkok condo is gorgeous, but not as magnificent and envious as the one you’ve seen, the one your friend owned down the street. You want to revamp yours, but you just can’t find the time and is clueless on what to do. Well, you can just hire someone to do the job for you. But it can be a little expensive, with the service fee and all. And, your personal touch can be disregarded.

But how can you do the task yourself with all your busy schedule and tight budget? Take a moment to savor the following simple suggestions:

  • Turn your own hands into a magic wand. Few of us have that special skill to turn anything into a piece of art. Show off your creativeness. If you are one of these lucky people, use that ability to turn your living room into a personal artwork. Well, not the whole room of course. You can start with your cushions, or you can add patterns to your fabrics. Doing this will give your living room a more personal look, and, not surprisingly, a unique style.
  • Out with the old, in with the new. Your decors have a significant effect on how your living room looks. Change it if you want to. Paint your walls with neutral colors such as beige, ivory or taupe. With simple colors as these, the fabrics and cushions you have experimented on will never be out of place. You can give your living room a whole new modern look by changing your traditional curtains to neutral vertical blinds. You can also add up other decors, such as lampshades and rugs. Such can be bought at a cheap rate, but with the right choices, they can have fantastic effects on the overall look of your Bangkok condo. Just don’t overdo it.
  • Look for bargain stuff. Yes, this can be a little time-consuming and of course, expensive. But if you know the right places to hunt and the right time to do it, you just might hit the jackpot. At times you can find exquisite furniture, which you usually drool on but walk away when you see the outrageous expensiveness, at a very considerable price.  Quality and affordable price, a combination you would rarely find at department stores but extremely available at bargain stores and seasons.
  • You can also invest in some sculptures and paintings which can give your condo a luxurious effect. It can be a little pricey, but an invested like these will be worth it. Instant transformation is guaranteed in no time.

Revamping your own home may not be as extravagant as those you see in magazines and lifestyle shows. But put in mind that doing makeover can also be a time-out for your busy life. Moreover, you are in control of the situation. You can do whatever you want, and your creativity can be exercised. There’s nothing more fulfilling than seeing the new look in your living room and thinking, “I did this on my own.”
