Home Renovation Ideas-Leafy Souls Vegan Blog Post

Homeowners could be starting a new venture or fixing an old one. Many people encounter the challenge of renovating their apartment or house - and it is an exciting one! There are a lot of things to take into account: for example, finding a contractor, staying within budget, brainstorming designs and finding the products such as furniture, ornaments,tapestries, paintings, and other decoration. But once you have all of the basics in place, the whole process is extremely fun and will give your home a brand, new and different feel.


Look for Inspiration

In the beginning stages of discussing renovation projects, it is important to understand which style you will go for and which design elements you want to incorporate. Start with an inspiration board. Pinterest is a great app for creating your own board and looking through other boards from different profiles with similar taste. Houzz is another platform that is filled with images of finished rooms and bathrooms.


Home Layout

What do you, or your family need? Perhaps you need an office, a place to meditate, a big open living room with kitchen, more light, a gym or an extra bedroom for guests. Watch a few documentaries or shows that demonstrate the layout process before the renovation takes place. Different homeowners have different needs which could be similar to your needs.

An Organized Home

Renovation projects are a great place to start going through your belongings and finding a home for them. You can take this opportunity to filter out everything that is unnecessary and get rid of them by giving items to a friend, reselling them or donating them to a charity. Whatever you have left can be assigned to a particular space when preparing the layout of your new home.

Toys can have an allocated box which will fit perfectly in the corner of a living room or a bigger desk with extra drawers can now be a place for all the stationary and files that are found lying around the house. Adequate storage can make every room feel more peaceful, clean and beautiful simply by removing the clutter. It is also a great way of knowing where everything is at all times.

If you don’t have room for a piece of furniture, use unique baskets, bins, and crates that help organize the mess. Look for practical pieces that tell a story and fit your style. These may take longer to find, but they’ll be worth the wait.

Easy Fixes

Dedicate a weekend to give your home a fresh new feel with minimal effort. Remove the grit and grim between bathtubs, sinks, and tiles and give your bathrooms and kitchen that brand new look. See if a new light fixture adds that extra bit of your personality without having to change much in your room. A fresh coat of paint can also go a long way and should be done every 5-8 years. Fill in any cracks that you can find with pieces of wood or plaster - depending on the material that is used.


Tie the Room Together

Avoid buying objects that have no meaning to you. If your room is empty and you don’t know what to add to it - then wait. You might find that perfect piece during a weekend away in the country, a market stall on the other side of the world, or even a gift from a friend or family member. Your home is a representation of you and what you love to be surrounded by. Make sure it is something that is a perfect fit and a life investment - otherwise there is no point. Focus on your home’s story- you and your family’s story and take time during the process. Rushing will only lead to purchasing objects that are thrown away as soon as they are set in the room.


Remove a Wall

Removing a wall that is not needed in keeping your home supported can make a world of change. Open space can bring in more light, make more room for arranging furniture and can help make a home breathe. Now you can fit in that gigantic plant that you have been keeping in a corner for months. Or now you can hang that massive tapestry that you bought during a trip and brought home with you but never had a place for it.

Renovating your home is a thrilling experience. There is so much choice of software choice that you can use when making up the plans for your home. There are also many home decor and renovations articles in magazines and blogs. When in doubt, hire a designer - it can be worth it if you find the right one!

Veganism is not just about food. Vegans think about how they consume products in general including clothing, home goods and accessories. Vegans want to know how everything is made and produced so that they can buy in the most ethical way they can. But it is not always easy to find out the processes or to ensure that companies are being honest and transparent.
