Enhancing Your Downstairs Living Space: A Guide For Families Who’ve Just Moved Into A New House

Collaborative post by another author. Moving house can be a stressful time for all members of your family. Children often get attached to homes where they have lived for years and grown up in, and it can be even tougher for them if you’re packing up and moving to an entirely different location, and they then must make new friends and change schools. You will undoubtedly feel a great sense of relief once it’s completed, and you’ve finally got the keys and got through the threshold into your new place. Then it will be time for you to think about how you can spruce the place up a little and about the possible home renovation improvements you can make around the place. Carry on reading to find out more in our guide to enhancing the downstairs living space for families who’ve just moved into a new house.

Decorate The Downstairs Walls Of Your New Home

You can do many things to make your downstairs walls appear more attractive. New wallpaper, painting using vibrant colours that go well together, and applying a lick of paint to skirting boards and anywhere else that needs it are some ways to make the downstairs walls look much better. After the walls have been decorated, the downstairs of your home will look a lot better, and it will generally be much nicer to spend a large chunk of your time relaxing in the kitchen or lounge areas, for instance.

If you’re a dab hand at DIY and trust in your painting and decorating capabilities, you can go down to your local shop or go online to buy some paint to decorate the downstairs of your new home. However, if you’re not so talented at DIY, hiring the services of a painter and decorator may be a better option for you.  

Choose Compelling Colour Schemes

Colours can make us feel different ways emotionally as humans. But colours that don’t go well together and clash can confuse our brains and look terrible in home décor situations. So, when trying to improve your downstairs space, keep in mind which colours will go well together and complement one another. For instance, red and green are examples of colours that complement each other. On the other hand, blue and yellow ‘clash’ and don’t go well together. So, be sensible with the colours you use in the downstairs of your house. Try and go for colours that help create a friendly, welcoming feeling for your family and guests.

Look Into Splendid Vertical Blinds For Your Windows

Vertical blinds look pleasant, are easy to operate and adjust as you wish, and come at an affordable price. Letting in as much light as possible will brighten up the place, and there are additional benefits for your mental wellbeing that come with getting a higher amount of vitamin D daily. Getting plenty of light into your downstairs will be simple through adjusting vertical blinds.

Get A Quality HD Television And Surround Sound

Are you a big fan of watching TV series and films as you chill out in your lounge at home? In that case, getting a high-definition flat-screen television with an immaculate picture and an epic surround sound system could be perfect in helping you create your own home cinema experience in your new place. The bass from the surround sound system will make it feel almost as if you’re living in the film or television show you’re watching. Streaming platforms have exploded in popularity in recent years. Get yourself a smart TV so you can watch whatever you like by downloading streaming platform applications on your television that connects rapidly to your home internet.  

Don’t Rush Things

Try to do your best not to rush any home renovation plans you have for the downstairs of your new home. Sometimes it can take a little while for you to settle in and get a real feel for what you’d like to do with your new home. It may take a few months for you to get a much clearer idea of things that would look good and help lift the place. You might even want to ask ask for a cheeky housewarming gift to help.

Moving into a new family home that needs to have quite a bit of work done to it can be a real challenge, but why not embrace this and work hard to get your downstairs space looking as lovely as possible?
