We all grew up with that vision of our dream home. You might have had that image of either a self-sufficient smart home, farmhouse, a gigantic mansion, or palace while growing up. However, we grow up to the realities of life, and that dream seems to be further than we expect. First, you go from living in a hostel dormitory to sharing an apartment with a college roommate or whatever the case may be. You may even have your apartment but not with the elements you have always imagined. The good news is that you can still make what you want from what you have, and we are willing to show you how.
If you are not satisfied with your new house's look and cannot figure out what is not right, you may want to pay attention to the painting. Because this does not look as tangible as other solid features like wall structure or furniture, you will most likely ignore how much effect it has on your home's feel and texture. The painting of a house plays a huge role in his appearance. Old and worn-out paintings must go; dull colors should give way to more exciting ones.
You can personalize your painting to reflect your taste and style. Pick colors that speak to you and clearly define comfort; you do not need anyone making that decision for you. It is your house and your dream home; own your paintings.

Restructuring and making little changes to the fixtures of your home can make a huge difference. A complete renovation can start with small efforts in changing furniture, doors and knobs, kitchen facilities, bath outlook, and many more. You may not necessarily have to replace fixtures to change the look of your home. A simple rearrangement of your bedroom or living room setting to create more space could be the answer you have been looking for all this while.
A touch of art in your house will add to the beauty, style and class of your home. You could get creative with crafts in redesigning or touching up your apartment. You do not have to make this the last step on the list of to-dos in your home transformation plans; it is what should be done straight away. There are various art forms to employ, from paintings to ceramic works, sculpture, there is undoubtedly something for you.
You can also get creative by improvising to cut costs. You do not have to purchase every art piece in your apartment, there are several art pieces you can create yourself. You can also touch up old parts or fixtures to give an artistic look. Some people employ the services of fine artists for a complete re-designing of their apartment. While using art, make sure that trends do not drive your choice instead you prioritize your personal preference; vogue is never a true concept in art. If you live in a dark house, find plants that thrive under minimal lighting such as dracaena, pothos, and prayer-plants. Another option would be to mimic the sun’s rays with grow lights. For overly-lit homes, there are plants that won’t mind excess light e.g. jade, yucca, and ponytail palm. And if you just can’t be a plant person, bring in artificial plants- they will add greenery to the home yet they come with zero maintenance needs.
Your current house does not have the necessary features you want, and maybe you wish for more rooms or extra space; who says you cannot create some? Home additions can help you turn your house into what you want it to be. Either you want a bigger living room or some toy space for your kid, you may even want to create a mini cinema in your house or install an above ground pool in your backyard, you can achieve this by creating extra space. Whatever addition you need to make to your house to create the perfect home feel can be done with little re-designing and construction efforts. Some companies can help you go over what expansion ideas you have, look at your house's architecture, and develop excellent plans to achieve your dream home. All these may cost you less than you imagined.
In conclusion, you should know a home is never finished. No matter how perfect the outcome you have now looks, you may want something different with time. Do not rush the transformation; take your time and work with your budget. It is your house, and you have all the time to make it your dream home. If it is a dream home, it sure will require a lot.
