Refurbishing the home – more than just spring cleaning
Spring is not only about to come – it has already arrived. The first days with warm temperatures accompanied by bright sunshine have started to effect big changes in our bodies and souls. We feel a very certain power that we thought to have lost during the long and cold winter – and this makes us move and long for anything which is new, fresh and beautiful.
This season works wonders: It pushes the reset-button and starts our inner motors. It sparks off interest not only in dusting the wardrobes to get space for new garments but also generate the urge to refurbish house or appartment.
We want to repaint the walls and ceilings, look for a new floor coating and nice pieces of furniture.
If we could, we would start immediately with renovation or redecoration. However, most people are experienced enough to hang on and make up their mind first: What do I actually intend to change, how much money and time can I afford to spend?
You should really plan how to proceed – it´s the only way to co-ordinate the individual steps and to guarantee that the colours and styles of wallpaper, floor covering and furniture finally match. Do not renovate several rooms at one go – just pick one, start work and finish it before you set about the next one.
No matter if you redecorate the salon or your bedroom, the hall or the kitchen – first of all decide on how to design the walls, ceiling and floor of a room. Then move on with purchasing the material you need or look out for craftsmen who will carry out the work. After that you can buy the new pieces of furniture.
Take your time for all the steps – and don´t push yourself to hurry up. Even though spring fever seems to make people speed up with anything they do, you shouldn´t rush things when you redesign your residential environment.
