Interior Renovations For Your Fairy Tale Home

 

A modern-day fairy tale is not one that is limited to the traditional format of prince-saves-princess, and neither is the modern fairy tale home. Updating your home's interior to make it embody something fit for a fairy tale isn't about turning your home into some sort of mythical castle; it is about making the changes that make you feel the best and most comfortable. Focus on sustainable renovations that your whole family can continue to enjoy for years to come. Considering that the home is an investment, these suggestions will positively impact the wider resale value of your home.

 

Update Your Flooring

 

Is your flooring looking a little tired and scuffed? Is it laden and burdened by marks caused by plates dropping or your child deciding to test their art skills in inappropriate places? Flooring is often said to be one of the most important elements of any interior design – unlike elements like curtains, pain, or wallpaper, and it cannot be easily or quickly changed. New flooring can also be quite expensive, so when you feel it's time to update your flooring, you should choose something that will last.

 

If you are looking to update your flooring, you should consider installing a hardwood floor. These floors not only look gorgeous but last a lot longer than tiles, lino, or carpet. They give off a timeless natural beauty that no other material can match, bringing some of that fairy tale charm into your house. Wood flooring is also a good investment, and it's been found to add value to your home when you come to sell it. Choosing bespoke artisan wood flooring gives you the biggest range of choice for sustainable and natural flooring.

 

Think About Lighting

 

Lighting has a big impact on the look and feel of any home. Not only does lighting affect how your home looks, but how you feel in it. Low levels of light can impact mental health and your wellbeing as it is linked to stress hormones and even endorphins.

 

One of the easiest things you can do if you want to renovate your fairy tale home is to get more light into dark rooms. This can be done quite simply by adding more lighting features. If you feel inspired by classic fairy tales, why not try adding a second-hand chandelier, which brings in light and refracts it in the glass for a magical effect. You can also add mirrors in locations that reflect natural light in from the window.

 

Add Soft Furnishings

 

A simple trick for you to get that cozy and romantic fairy tale cottage esthetic in your home is by adding more soft furnishings. Soft furnishings like rugs, throws, and cushions can reduce any room's harshness, making it look softer and more appealing for you and your guests. If you are worried about spending money on furnishings when you have young children, why not cover your furniture with throws? Not only does this make your home feel homely, cozy, and inviting it helps to protect your furniture too!

 

Shop Vintage

 

If you love the unique artifacts that you can see in the background of fairy tale films, a great way to find classic and magical pieces that don't also have extortionate price tags is to look for some of your home décor in vintage and second-hand shops. You can get your furniture sorted by visiting many vintage shops, or you can look for decorations that give your home that magical charm. It's also a sustainable way of shopping that will help you find one-of-a-kind pieces to define your home to guests and family members alike. To avoid collecting too many mismatched pieces, you must ensure your shopping stays cohesive. A great way to do that is by creating a mood board for your home. This could be a folder of screenshot photos on your phone or a Pinterest board that you can refer to as you go about your shopping.

 

Add More Plants

 

Whether or not you have a garden adding more plants to the home is a great way to improve your interior look. The plants that you choose might depend on your interior style, but you are sure to find plants that enhance the esthetic that you have decided upon. For example, you might want to choose flowers with color palettes that complement your home or, if you don't have a good record with house plants, you might want to choose more resilient plants.
