In general, psychologically, people begin to feel bored because of the lack of activity, or in other words, the lack of change, a lack of new things, thus a lack of growth. As Confucius said thousands of years ago, “They must often change, who would be constant in happiness or wisdom.” With this wisdom in mind, we could say that a home whose interiors do not change, will probably lose happiness as time passes by, eventually leading to boredom, then to anxiety, and then to depression. However, it is not necessarily important to renovate the interiors of your home every month. Actually, a change in your home at least once a year is actually very good if you can afford to do so, which is better if you can do it without spending much money. You may have the desire to renovate the interiors of your home, but the only problem you have is that you do not know how you should do it. So, to help you out with that, and to live up to what Confucius has said (if you happen to agree with him), then here are some interior design ideas that you can have, mostly, for the renovation of your home.
For most of the time, the part of the house that requires renovation is the kitchen. It is used for cooking things. It is a place where food is made and food is consumed. This is the place where heat is most often circulating. It is the place where chemical transformations of the paint, or any other substances that are very reactive to heat, are most often happening. As for the kitchen, some interior design ideas could be the changing of the paints. This may include a shift from white to dirty white with slight touches of brown, or perhaps a certain lighter shade of carnation pink. The changing of the handles of the cabinets would also give your kitchen a new “feel” at low costs. As for the lighting of any place around your house, simply try to find cheaper incandescent bulbs for non-working places such as the living room, the dining room (not the dirty kitchen), and the bedroom. For the working places, it is of course important to use fluorescent bulbs for the enhancement of vision. These working places include the study room, play room (if there is any), the dirty kitchen, the garden, and of course the outside of the house to lessen the probability of burglary.
If you happen to want more out of renovating the interiors of your home, then you might also want to extend the perimeters of your house. When you come to that point of your renovation, a good interior design idea is that you should keep in mind that your extensions should look like as if it was part of the original design. You should remain as faithful as possible to the original designs of the area such as the exact shade of the paint, the original designs and edges of the wall.
