One of the most often asked questions is how often should you paint or redesign your home’s interior. While you may think that you should perform an overhaul every decade or so, you may be surprised to find that it should be done more often. In fact, let’s go over some recommendations for your home’s redesign.
The makeover process is one that includes a lot of involvement from you. In fact, this process usually involves removing everything from a room and then completely refurnishing and redesigning it in full.
Since this is a huge process, you should only do it once every five years, but no more than ten years. While five years is the recommendation, some people grow out of their old style quickly and makeover their home every three or four years. The choice is yours to make.
Typical steps involved in this process include replacing flooring, repainting, replacing furniture, and changing window treatments.
Restyling your home is not as involved as the makeover process and it typically involves adding a new piece of décor and getting rid of other décor. If you do not restyle your home often, you will find that you quickly have a pile of items that you no longer have a use for.
Typically, restyling takes place all of the time. For instance, if you go shopping and find a new piece of artwork, you may purchase it and bring it home to hang on the wall. Once it is on the wall, you have restyled your home.
If you are not too keen on restyling, we recommend that you try to do it at least once every six months to a year, as it is common to get tired of items that you see every day on the shelf.
Lastly, refreshing the interior of your home is even less involved than the other two. In fact, this is something that you probably do each and every time you head to the store. For instance, you pick up an air freshener or you buy a new pillow for your bed. Something as simple as changing the color of the candle in your bedroom is considered refreshing your home. This process should be done regularly and usually is without you even thinking about it.
Redecorating your home does not have to be done on a regular basis, but you should make sure that you keep your home refreshed, this way, you do not become bored with your decorations.
