Are you dreading being indoors this winter?
We’re here to tell you why you don’t have to fret the cold and snow this season, using more time inside to your advantage. In completing an interior home improvement project, you can lift your spirits by adding new life to your interior design. From applying new paint colors to adding materials that will provide warmth and comfort, here are projects you can focus on to create defining change.
Naturally, the fireplace is the focal point of your home in the winter. Not only does it function as a much-needed heat source, it also establishes a warm and welcoming atmosphere for all to enjoy.
The look of your fireplace can really highlight your living space, setting the room’s tone.
If you want a product that provides timeless charm and long-lasting durability, choosing natural stone is your best option. It can be paired with any style and has a rich and elaborate feel. For a quick fix with traditional brick, you can alter color by painting the fireplace surround, establishing bold contrast with a contemporary design. Today, neutral tones like whites, grays and blacks are trendy favorites in homes.
To establish a rustic effect, using an exposed wood beam for your mantel achieves natural character.
Whether in living rooms, kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms or basements, accent walls have found their place in homes, providing distinct looks that draw attention to materials, textures and colors.
Like the above kitchen shows, these features can be mixed to create a stylish space.
In this instance, soft green cabinetry combines with shiny stainless-steel appliances, glossy wood and dull red brick to form a truly unique look. Where the kitchen cabinets provide a vibrant pop of color, the red brick accentuates the remaining pieces by providing an attractive balance.
There’s a lot you can do to bring together a room and showcase all of its individual parts.
Raise it, display it and enjoy bringing the outside in.
By introducing fresh greenery to your home during the winter months, not only do you get the health benefits of purer air quality but also natural décor that can be featured around the house.
The use of indoor plants is a mood booster as much as anything. Show your foliage care with periodic watering and constant light, and you’ll experience beautiful growth as well as an uplifting feeling.
Take it from us…with a little effort at home, there’s a lot to look forward to this winter.
