Decorating Your Home like a Professional

There is a lot more to decorating a home than you might think. That is why there is an actual profession for people who have a knack for decorating homes. If you are not an interior decorator, though, do not stress that you cannot ever achieve the look of a professionally decorated home. Hiring an interior decorator to design your home can be expensive, but that is not your only option if you want a beautifully decorated home. If you are decorating on a budget, trust your creativity to turn décor that you already have into modernized pieces that bring your home décor style together. Here are some helpful tips and tricks to remember when decorating your home.

Cleaning and organizing

First and foremost it is important to clean and organize your home so you know what space you are working with. Interior Design Info suggests that you work from room to room getting rid of unnecessary clutter and freeing up space. Clutter is never appealing, and you cannot achieve the look of a professionally decorated home with clutter looming everywhere. Getting rid of clutter makes a home feel more relaxing and stress free, and allows you to enjoy the décor style rather than be distracted by the mess. Once you are free of unnecessary clutter, use stylish baskets, bins and drawer organizers to keep items organized and easy to find. Deep clean your home and dust the shelving so your new home décor is not covered in dirt and grime. Cleaning and organizing your home will help you easily determine where new décor is needed.

Quality home décor

If you want your home to stand out, avoid purchasing the cheap and mass produced home décor that you can find at major retailers. Shop antique stores and other small shops for unique items that can bring character to your home. Purchasing quality décor typically means that it will last both in structure and in style. You will probably spend a little more, but it is definitely worth it. If you cannot afford the expensive pieces, get ideas from these types of stores and then shop around thrift stores to find similar décor that you can spruce up and make it look like you paid top dollar for it.

How To Refinish Your Mirrored Closet Doors?

Are you thinking of getting your outdated mirrored closet doors refurbished? You are probably deciding right. If your closet doors (whether these are bi-fold doors or any other) no longer interest you or keep up their appearance in line with the overall decor of your room, then it’s time to have them replaced. You can opt for more modern choices while preparing a closet-door project.

While reworking on your closet doors, you will require these following materials and tools before proceeding with the renovation.

Medium density fiberboard strips (preferably three inches in size)Brackets for dowelsHeavy-duty panel adhesiveScrews and drillsOne eighth-inches thick plywoodPaintbrushesOil-based stainWater-based polyurethaneA standard paint rollerNeedle and thread (or a sewing machine)Skil sawWooden dowels and nail gun (five eighth inches in size)

Once you have collected these implements, follow the below given steps carefully to refurbish your closet doors.

First and foremost, remove the mirrored doors from their tracks and turn them over so that their back sides become the new front sides.Attach the fiberboard strips to these new front sides using the heavy-duty panel adhesive. Make sure you leave enough gap between the bottom strip and the frame so as to easily fit the dowel dabbed in fabric.Take the drill and fix the brackets towards the top portion of your newly mounted inner frame.Next, with the skil saw, cut out a mid portion of the plywood. Ensure that this portion is an inch wider in size as compared to the fiberboard frame.With the paintbrush, proceed to apply the oil-based stain to your newly made door skin. To provide it a perfect finesse, apply two coats of water-based polyurethane with the help of a standard paint roller.Now either with a sewing machine or a needle and thread, design curtain panels with finished edges on every side. Complete the task by adding rod pockets both at the top and the bottom. Make sure the panels are at least two to three times wider than the inside of your doors. By doing this, you will achieve a soft pleated look and these panels will no longer be transparent.As the next step, insert the dowel inside the top as well as the bottom rod pockets and fan out the panels uniformly. The dowels should be fitted into the bracket at the top and into the gap at the bottom. Secure the dowels in place using a nail gun.Lastly, firmly secure the plywood door skins to the fiberboard frame with the panel adhesive and the nail gun. Drill the nails at such an angle that they don’t puncture the door skins. Once this is done, you are ready to place back the doors into their tracks.

Redoing your mirrored closet doors is an easy do-it-yourself project. Just in case you think seeking professional help will be a better decision, then definitely choose to do so. All that matters is the task to be executed correctly and efficiently so that you can enjoy a brand new closet door look without much expense.
