If you are thinking to improve or renovate your room, the first thought that has to cross your mind is “Keep calm and watch”. There are a lot of resources and actions to do, before going wildly shopping furniture or art wall. And the Barcelona Collection may help you.
It’s important to notice from the start what is the extent of your work: do you want just to improve, or you want to make a total shakeup? Depending of the case you can allocate your resources better. Let’s see
Case 1: Decluttering and Organize
It’s amazing how can a room improve, just by a good, deep cleaning and decluttering. And it can be very obvious to you. Accumulation and hoarding may really get out of control very fast, and the results of prolonged hoarding are disastrous, not only damaging the aesthetics of your room but with the hazards associated with grime, junk and insects, among others.
So, apart from a nice habit, decluttering and organizing may be good for your room. Rediscovering your place and seeing it clean and organized it will always be pleasant to your eye. And it will only require your individual work and low budget for cleaning articles and maybe some file boxes (hopefully).
Case 2: low impact redo.
There are specific, single actions that may have a significant effect in your room. The classic example is to paint it. Once painted, every room is born again, like a blank canvas. you can take the opportunity to introduce some accents with the help of painting to create particular effects. For example, you can get an accent wall just painting a very well delimited wall, with a strong color. This creates tension and remarks on the limits of the room. If your ceiling is too high, you can paint it with a solid color, too, and you’ll create a more intimate place.
But painting your walls is not the only low impact thing you can do. Getting getting rid of furniture you don’t use and bringing in furniture from other spaces in your house, is an alternative, for sure. Don’t be afraid of go hunting in your own space. Maybe that nightstand in the bedroom is exactly what you need in your living room.
You may consider bringing home some minor furniture items, or some decore article. Once your bedroom is clean and painted of immaculate white, you realize that the only thing missing is a Barcelona Ottoman at the right side of the bed.` This strategy has a low budget impact a requires some personal effort, too.
Case 3: Renovation
But if you consider that a simple rearrangement is not enough, and your room requires a total renovation, go for it. You should assign a budget, and keep in mind that buying furniture and replacement will be your first priority. Take it with calm and do it with love. Look over the style you want, and figure out your trend before buying that desired Barcelona Sofa you always wanted, for example. Measure, go step by step, and you will have the room that you deserve. Here are some basic tips:
Discover your style.
Look on the internet for the styles you like to go to specialized blogs, architecture, and furniture stores. They all have information for you to get inspo. What is your style? Mid Century Modern? Coastal Living? There are lots of styles and combinations. You will find for sure something to turn you on.
Measure your space properly.
Keep always in mind that the worst mistake in decor is to overcrowd your space. You need to be free to move and enjoy your space and furniture. Wide, long, deep, and height of your space is something you really need to be clear. You’ll need to contrast your measures with your chosen furniture, to see if they’re right for your space.
Kids, Cats, Dogs, Alligators?
It sounds a little intimidating, but it really has to do with your conditions. Your choice of furniture can be affected by your personal situation: How many people live with you? Do you have any kids? Do you have any pets?. There is a big risk of spills and scratches, for example. Materials as glass are not safe with children. Microfiber sofas will suffer a lot with the daily spill of sodas and food.
Ask for a sample of the fabric you chose
Every time is more frequent to buy in online stores. Even in items we never in the past thought, like furniture. Online stores are very aware of the limits of online trading, so they work really hard to sell quality and provide a good post-sale service. So, many of them provide you little samples of fabrics for you to taste and feel directly. If your store offers the service, ask for it. It will allow you to make a better decision.
Once you have all the information required, go on ! buy in the best store you find, the furniture that makes you dream. The Barcelona Collection is one of your better choices for an integral, beautiful, and coherent renovation to set an elegant Mid Century Modern living room.
