Furniture

  • Check for any damaged furniture in your house.
  • Preserve those that can be reused.
  • Try to bring in sofas, tables or even antique cabinets that fit the vintage style.
  • When installing light fixtures, go for old lamp shades, an Aladdin lamp or headboards that match the home’s old-world charm. 
  • Repaint white or faded cabinets to restore their appearance.
  • Try doing up your rooms with open bookshelves and old books, antique iron beds and wicker furniture.
  • You can always mix and match old and modern furniture to bring a historic-yet-upgraded look to the interiors of the house.

Flooring

  • Thoroughly check the flooring of the house for any damage or cracks, to save whatever you can.
  • Remove old hardwood flooring and refinish. This can help bring a shine to the floors.
  • Change the flooring of the bathroom.
  • Placing carpets on the floor can sometimes help cover up small damages.

 Walls and windows

  • Replace damaged walls with dry walls as they are less prone to crumbling and cracking when compared to plaster walls.
  • You can paint your walls with vibrant colors for a modern look. You can also paint the cabinets and walls in shades of yellow, red or green for a real farmhouse vibe.
  • The exteriors of the house can be painted a combination of white and black, for a traditional look.
  • Enlarge the windows while renovating the house. Larger windows will let you experience the garden’s ambience from the inside.
