Creating areas in your home that reflect the tranquility and naturalness of the outdoors is a wonderful way to transform your space. Here are several organic home improvement ideas – from accessorizing to painting – and larger renovations, as well, that can help give your home an organic, earthy overhaul.
Plants: One of the easiest DIY ways to bring the outdoors in is to smartly decorate using plants. For a bolder look, have a professional construction team build permanent indoor planters to frame hallways or add a greenhouse / Florida room to your home.
Flow and Views: Don’t starkly divide your home’s interior and exterior. Install large glass doors, expansive windows or wall panels that open to the outdoors. Lay outdoor appropriate flooring in a kitchen or living room – such as stone or bamboo – and continue the theme as the room leads outside. Outdoor kitchens are another great way to connect the interior and exterior of your home.
Natural Elements: There are many ways homeowners can literally bring pieces of nature inside. Revamp your
fireplace with stone accents or a refurbished wood mantle. Have skylights installed to bring in natural light. Switch out your laminate countertops for ones made of granite or natural stone tiles. Be daring and opt for a custom built, indoor water feature.
Steal Colors: Painting is an economical home improvement and another great way to make your home feel more open and natural. Provide your painters with colors from the palette you see outside. Greens and yellows in smaller rooms – for a spring – like, upbeat atmosphere, sunset reds and oranges for larger rooms and sky grays and blues for bedrooms, to create a calming effect.
Organic Shapes: There are no straight lines found in nature. Instead of rectangular end tables and dining room sets, choose ovular ones. Have a professional renovation crew build out some archways in addition to your squared – off doorways. Soft – lined, rounded furniture, remodeled arched windows and even a circular setup of tabletop decorations can help you avoid sharp lines in your home.
