How To Redecorate A Room In A Weekend

Redecorating is a big job that should take around a week to complete but there are ways to redecorate a room in a weekend. If you’ve only got 48 hours this weekend to give your home a bit of lift, it’s best to focus your efforts on just one room! This way you can break the work up into steps over a month or two and really hone in on your makeovers. And to help ensure you’re able to pull off a satisfying redec plan, here’s what you need to know about using these hours wisely.

Make a Plan

The first thing to do is make a plan. What result do you want here? And how do you ultimately want to redecorate? What will really make a difference in your home? Maybe a bit of paint on the wall, maybe a new sofa or desk to use, or maybe string lights, plants, and panelling will add the most impact? Remember, if you don’t have an image in your head of the finished project, you won’t be able to get things done within the weeknd! 

Wait Until All Your Supplies Have Arrived

It’s no good starting your redec project until all your supplies have turned up at the door. After all, you need to get things done within 48 hours, and can’t afford to get one half of the room finished while the other half sticks out like a sore thumb. So head out and buy from Upholstery Suppliers to redo your chairs, get paint from the DIY store, and make sure you’ve got some good tools to use your materials with. Once you’re sure your list has been ticked off, it’s time to get to work. 

Declutter the Space

Now it’s time to get cleaning. You’ll need as many things as possible out of the way so you can get in and out of the room without bumping into traffic. This’ll save you more time than you think! So push all furniture to one side of the room and cover it up and make sure any clutter is thrown into a bag or box and store that elsewhere. Make sure the floor is clear so you don’t trip and then get to work.

Use More Than One Colour

This is the most important part of the redec plan. If you’re going for impact here, and want to make a real difference to the space, you’ll need to add dimension through block colouring and highlights. A dark colour, a midtone, and a lighter colour will always look the best thanks to that ombre look that’s all the rage, and transitioning through the colour wheel really helps to settle the eye. When you’re shopping for new wall paints or wallpaper, try to keep this rule in mind. Light at the top, dark at the bottom, and use that fade in the middle. 

Redecorating a room can be challenging, but it’s not a hard task you need ages for. Make a plan and execute it efficiently with these tips!
