Renovation is scary for all of us, but good planning and organization can make it stress-free and quick. Experts suggest investing in the right, light, ergonomic, efficient tools if you decided to redesign your home. When you redesign your interior, keep your belongings in designated storage spaces outside of the room. Built-in storage is excellent for hiding things. Also, storage boxes, closets, attic spaces, plastic containers, and baskets can keep your belongings until you finish your room re-design project.

Here are design experts’ suggestions to ease the renovation process and help achieve beautiful results in decorating. Bringing more light and using vibrant interior colors are a great idea for modern renovation. De-cluttering and the minimalist style, combined with glass elements and houseplants, turn rooms into stylish and comfortable.

1. Glass

Consider adding a window or change existing windows for larger ones. Bring light into your rooms, visually increasing their sizes and adding a contemporary vibe to interior design. Think about glass room dividers, open shelving systems, or glass furniture. Wall mirrors and glass decor items help stretch living spaces visually.

Experts suggest avoiding grayish-beige wall paint colors, especially in bedrooms and northern rooms. Beige walls may look gloomy in fall and winter. Also, grayish tones add a depressive feel to the spaces at night. Warm beige shades are better options as they create neutral but warm and welcoming rooms.
