Having an inborn love for art, I cannot agree more with Whoever said that appearance counts .Have you ever walked into homes of friends or relatives and get astounded as to how attractive they look? You get to see the neat arrangement of pebbles or beautiful stones along the paths or drive ways with very nice decorations and blend of colours that light up the house. You only end up wishing, if not jealous that your home looked the same.
Nobody wakes up one morning to find that his home has a complete makeover and attained an appearance similar to the dream homes in magazines. You can only attribute this to a well-planned exercise. Complete steps are put in play and gradually the appearance changes to a better look.
The process of improving your home takes place in steps .Getting a complete makeover at once will tend to be cumbersome as you will most likely have to move away with your family and leave interior designers to do their job .However you can improve your home slowly over a calculated period of time.
A very simple way of improving your homes appearance is by using the wood corbels .They are a very easy way to decorate the house .They can be used to hold up the fireplace, shelves and counter tops .They make the house more attractive by giving it the elegant, royal and classic look .This makes the house interior look like the inside of a palace.
Carvings on the wood come in different designs and colours you therefore have a wide range of variety to choose from .The colour of the wood used varies too from red, mahogany black l,mapple ,oak and many more. As much as I would propose the mahogany black colour to give the classy, look the choice of colour will entirely depend on the home owners taste in color and the wall colour of the house.
The house will have an overall more attractive appearance if the wood used blends with the wall colour or the wallpaper in use. Larger pieces can also be used to make the appearance look more classic and stylish. Once fixed on to the walls the shelves can then be placed and nailed just so to make they are strong. The colour of the shelf has to however be similar to that of the wood used to avoid contrast.
Magnificently curved pieces should be used at the fireplace since it is mostly located at the front of the living room and it attracts great attention .Also when the fire s lit it glows and completes the whole look with the vanished wood giving the impression of a classic set up.
For you who is interested in Improving the appearance of your home, you will need to put extra effort to have and maintain a beautiful home ,one that you enjoy living in and also have something to show off .Since almost all of us want to live in a home that we are proud of let’s get back to the drawing board and restyle our homes.
