Transform Your Home With These 3 Colour Tips

transform your home with colour

Whether you are moving out of your old home, moving into a new one, or both, you will need to take a long hard look at the shades on the walls. You’ll find it’s easy to transform your home with the right colour tips.

When moving out you need to consider what the person who may be purchasing your home likes and when you are moving in you need to consider what will make you feel comfortable and at home. Both are important and they can be wildly different than one another.

Here are some tips that you can use in both situations:

Follow colour trends

The paint industry announces colour trends each year. These pretty color trend reports are generally filled with photos of the colors, both swatches and in homes. Unless you are starting from scratch you are not going to want to use all of them each year, that would be an awful lot of work.

It is a good idea, however, to pick one and incorporate it to transform your home with colour. You don’t have to limit yourself to paint either, you might want to incorporate the shades through embellishments and accessories.

Be brave with colour tips

Don’t let yourself get scared off of the vibrant colors if you are choosing them for your own home. You might want to steer clear of them if you are trying to sell your home though. In that case, you will want to stick to easier to swallow colors, they tend to help homes sell better.

Again, you don’t have to work in brave colour tips through paint alone, you can also put up some vibrant artwork to bring a little life into any room.

Fall in love with monochromatic colour schemes

These are fantastic when you are selling your home as most people will find it easy to imagine their own items filling up the space because there isn’t really anything to clash with.

This type of colour scheme lends itself to many styles in terms of decor and artwork.

Keep these top three colour tips in mind and you will sell your old home quickly and find it easy to move into your new one for the long haul.

If you haven’t yet found a professional moving company and you live in the Greater Toronto Area, give Valet Storage a call. We can help and we offer highly competitive rates and unique services.

Moving Tips: Don’t Pack Junk!

moving tips Toronto movers
Planning a move? One of the best moving tips you are going to come across is to not pack a bunch of junk to take with you to your new home. Think about it, this is important for a couple of different reasons.

I like to think of moving as the ultimate opportunity to declutter. You have to go through everything anyway, so why not weed out the junk? Plus, why would you want to go through all the trouble of packing up things you don’t need? It’s a lot of wasted effort, and then you have to pay the Toronto movers to come in and load it all up and then unload it at your new home? No thank you!

The following article has several fantastic moving tips that will save you plenty of your own time and money and make things easier for your Toronto movers.

Have you moved recently? Are you planning a move? If you have put your home on the market or are thinking about moving to a new home, be forewarned. There are some stressful days and busy hours coming your way. Moving to a new home is considered by some to be one of the hardest things you will do. It takes planning, time and lots of work. There are definitely some things you can do to make the move a little easier. Here are 7 Tips for a Smooth Move. I don’t claim that these tips will take out all the work, but it will help your transition go smoother…READ MORE HERE…

Home Organization: Lies You Tell Yourself

home organizationEver wonder why you are always looking at a cluttered home and how you can declutter better? There are some lies that most of us tell ourselves that are doing us a disservice.

It’s important when you are trying to change anything in your life that you closely examine your thoughts and feelings, you might not realize it but this is especially true when it comes to home organization.

Common lies that do us harm in terms of home storage:

LIE 1: If I pare down my wardrobe I will have nothing interesting to wear.

TRUTH: By having fewer clothes you can afford to buy better items that you can use to coordinate more exciting outfits.

 

LIE 2: If I put off my home organization and decluttering I will be more motivated to get it all done at once.

TRUTH: If you leave things to the last minute when guests are coming or you just procrastinate in general you are more likely to feel overwhelmed and never get what you want accomplished.

 

LIE 3: If I throw that item out or give it away I will be sorry I did down the road.

TRUTH: The majority of the items you keep around for a rainy day are the ones you don’t really need at all. On top of that fact, if you keep everything, when you need one specific thing chances are good you won’t be able to find it.

 

LIE 4: If I throw those papers out I will lose something important.

TRUTH: These days, with the internet and many records being kept online, bank records for example, most of the papers you have laying around aren’t necessary to keep. The one exception is if you own a business. If that’s the case, talk to your accountant and/or lawyer to find out what you need and what you don’t. It’s almost certain that at least 80 percent of what you have been keeping is unnecessary.

 

LIE 5: I can’t work on home organization until I get special shelves and organization tools and I can’t afford them right now.

TRUTH: You don’t need anything like that to stay organized. Are they nice to have? Sure, but they are far from necessary. You can browse around our blog and find hundreds, no, thousands, of home organization tips you can use to keep your home decluttered and very few of them need anything special.

HOW TO UNPACK A HOUSE IN TWO DAYS

In the 14 years my ex-husband was home, we moved over 30 times. You most likely don’t know anyone else that can pack a Uhaul as good as me (if it didn’t fit, I didn’t get to keep it!) nor do you know someone who can put up a home as quick (because I’ve literally done it SO many times!)
