I love decorating and learning about easy and innovative ideas to keep our homes looking always fresh and beautiful.
I am quite picky with how I want my own home to look like but I also appreciate keeping the costs low, so in this post we will share some ideas that you can use when you decide to make a few changes around the house while working on a budget.
Since moving to the UK I have changed houses a few times, and soon I will move again. Amongst other things, I love painting the walls and how much a simple coat of paint can completely change how the room looks and feels.
One of the first things I do whenever I move to a new house is to decide if the walls need painting and what colours I can use based on what theme I am going for on that particular room.
I believe that the colour scheme can have a huge impact and you have to decide which room will go well with that colour to make the best of it.
If you are not sure about a specific colour always test on a small part of the wall before committing to it. And even if after deciding you are not 100% sure about how it is going to look in the entire room, you can go for a feature wall. After that you can decide if you will paint the whole room or the feature wall will be enough.
If you are looking to use a different decorative technique, you should look into venetian plaster. This ancient and versatile finish will make any room look high end and luxurious. This technique can be used on walls, ceilings and floors. Talk about versatile!
The venetian plaster finish resembles marble and comes in a variety of colours to suit your preferences. It is also durable and very low maintenance.
I love the idea of having venetian plaster on bathroom walls as the absence of tiles makes the atmosphere more calming and less busy. If you are into minimalism you will appreciate these aspects of this product.
After researching a bit more about this product I realise how classy and elegant it looks in any room. This product also uses natural materials to give that very exclusive and sophisticated texture. And it is so versatile it can be also used outdoors.
If you are thinking about giving venetian plaster a try, make sure to do your research to find the right professionals to apply it for you. This sophisticated option is cost effective and will make any room look very luxurious and inviting.
