When it comes to remodeling a house or redesigning it, the answer might not be as complicated or expensive as changing all the old furniture or pulling up the floors you have. There may be ways to give your home a fresh look, while still keeping all the basic elements of the home. One of the ways that you can make your home design seem like you redid the whole place but with a minimal amount of change is by switching out all the old fabrics on your homes furniture, beds and window coverings.
The fabrics in your home take a beating. Every day use, food stains, dirt and even the weather all put a hurt on your fabrics, leaving them faded and torn. Just because the fabric needs to be changed, does not mean that what is beneath it does. The first candidate for fabric replacement is your bedding. The average person spends one third of their lives in their beds and that means that they get a lot of use. Not to mention the fact that many of us eat and work in our bed, the sheets and covers are washed constantly and they start to come undone. There are few things as disruptive to the eye in a room as a beaten up bed and there are few things which are as easy to fix. Custom bedding can be whatever you want it to be, warm, modern, playful or just plain comfortable. The cost of ordering custom bedding is far less than the cost of getting a new bed and the worst part about putting up all that cash for a new bed is that once it arrives and you put the old bedding on it, you notice that not much has changed.
The next thing on the list is to get some new fabric for your draperies. The draperies in your house are another item that takes a serious beating over time and they need to be switched out more often than other items. The good thing about draperies is that like other types of window coverings, (with exception to window covering such as blinds which can be far more easily changed out for a whole new set) you can just replace the fabric instead of buying a whole new window covering. Most window coverinsg work on an expensive system of runners and shifts and these can be a real pain to replace but they typically last for a lot longer than the fabrics that they support. Just measure out the area and get the right amount of fabric from the shop. If you know your way around a thread and needle, the whole process can be done at home but if you are not to handy with this type of craftwork, a seamstress can attach your new draperies to the old mount and it shouldn’t cost you more than a few dollars. If you like the old fabric that you already have, just buy a new fabric with a similar look. Changing out the fabrics in your home will go a long way to making the place seem fresh and revitalized.
