A home office might be a great place for kids to get their online schoolwork done.
When considering style choices, homeowners and renters alike are options for themes. Whether it’s a room designed around a travel destination or one that hosts a focal wall with an inspiring quote, a quick scroll through Pinterest is bound to set you brainstorming new ideas.
3. Outdoor Spaces and Repurposing
Backyards have become the new public parks. People have spent shutdown time working to build decks and patios. If you’ve laid down the basics, it might be time to bring your backyard oasis up a notch. From outdoor furniture to fire pits and extra chairs for outdoor gatherings, 2021 will be another year for outdoor fun. This year, a stylish trend is outdoor lighting. From twinkling fairy lights in trees to solar lighting around picnic tables and outdoor grills, lighting is one way to set your yard apart. Even just a few accessories could make your backyard feel more like a luxury vacation spot with a little creative thinking and music to set the mood.
With an uncertain economy and a lack of supplies, many people are turning to the idea of repurposing as a way to give their house a new touch of style. Whether it’s turning old appliances into quirky bookshelves for the new office or winterizing indoor furniture for use outdoors, one stylish way to give your house a makeover is a few yards of fabric and a can of spray paint. After you’re done repainting the walls, consider some decoupage or other art on old furniture. Even a little dab of fresh color will go a long way in brightening your home.
How you style, your home is entirely up to you. From surrounding yourself in things that make you happy or items that represent goals, you can’t go wrong if you take the time to design a plan that suits you. Happy renovating, decorating, and designing to you!
