For many of us, it seems that designers are almost like magicians who can transform any living space beyond recognition. Look at the 20 home makeovers below, and you’ll see what we mean! The great thing about these ideas is that you can try them yourself in your own home — they’re so straightforward that there’s no need to call a professional!
We at Architecture & Design have already picked some of these for our office. We’re sure that you’ll find something to your taste as well!
A Small And Functional Kitchen
In this case, painting the walls and adding a few decorative elements wouldn’t be enough to make the kitchen more stylish. This kitchen was, in fact, fully renovated. The combination of white and navy blue always works well—the large indoor plant is a bright spot in this room. The floor is now covered with tiles of imitation marble. The furniture wasn’t even moved, but the kitchen looked utterly different.
You may also tie the entire look together by using a concrete floor, beautifully emulating the look of luxurious marble, too. The concrete floors not only bring a sense of elegance and durability to the kitchen but also make maintenance a breeze, ensuring that this revamped space remains both stylish and practical.

A Place Where Creativity Can Flourish
This attic was changed drastically. The turquoise walls and white ceiling refresh the room. After its renovation, this has become an ideal workplace where creativity can flow freely. Lovely colors, a warm carpet, a classic sofa, and natural decorative elements create an inspirational atmosphere for work.
A Productive Workplace
To work efficiently, you have to be in the right environment. For example, it’s better to avoid cold colors on the walls or leave them with no decor at all. Look at how the bright colors contrast with the floor and other wooden elements after the makeover. The floor is also covered in artificially aged parquet. I wouldn’t mind working in a place like this!
Ideas For A Small Room
In this case, gray tones perfectly combine with bright colors and natural light. The simple furniture and original carpet design are ideally suited to the small room, as well as the various decorative items on the shelves.
A Creative Office
We spend most of our time in offices, so this should be a comfortable and cozy space. Colorful walls, white shelves with original things placed on them, bright chairs, and light laminate flooring will make you feel creative and energetic every working day.
A Bright Living Room
This living room was transformed drastically. Initially, it was decorated in a traditional style with a predominance of dark colors. Now, this bright room is decorated in ’’cottage style,’’ characterized by the same range of colors, functional furniture, and the primary use of white. The walls are sheathed with bleached oak, which might seem an impractical design solution. But with proper care, its beauty will please your eyes for a long time.
Dark Walls And Bright Decorative Elements
Making a dark and gloomy room look brighter is a typical task for any designer. However, sometimes, customers love dark colors. For such people, this living room is an ideal solution. Just paint the walls with your favorite dark color to highlight the bright and light furniture. No need to change the floor — varnish it to make it look new.
The Beauty Of Minimalism
There is nothing extra in this minimalist kitchen. The bright background emphasizes the light furniture. Everything revolves around the contrasts. The parquet floor also looks very impressive in the new setting.
A Cozy Living Room
In this case, the laminate floor was replaced with a lighter one to make the room cozier. You can paint the walls with acrylic, replace the curtains with blinds, and cover the artificial fireplace with decorative ’’Marrakech’’ plaster or trim it with tiles. And voila! — the living room looks luxurious!
Add A Little Pink
There is nothing extra here, but at the same time, the fantastic combination of white and pink energizes and refreshes this vast room. Lots of light makes it more spacious, and the gold elements give the interior a classic look.
Mixing Old And New Styles
If you’re sick of your old-fashioned kitchen that was probably decorated by your grandma’s grandma years ago, it’s time for significant changes. However, there’s no need to change everything to the last nail. Try mixing old and new styles by adding a few old lamps and storage baskets to preserve the charm of the past in your modern interior.
A Comfortable Workplace
This creative corner was made in the niche once used for a closet. A few shelves, attractive wallpaper, a neat little table, and a curtain are all you need to create your cozy workplace at home. To get the perfect color combination, you can replace the wood floor with a dark parquet.
A Modern Kitchen
You don’t have to fill your kitchen with souvenirs, baskets, and colorful dishes to make it brighter. Sometimes, you need to remove something to add a little style. Do you need all that stuff in your kitchen? Think about it. Then, decide on the style and colors, think about what to put on the shelves, and throw away or hide unnecessary things.
A Boy’s Room
When your little son reaches his teen years, it’s time for a room makeover. The chances are he no longer plays with toys and admires his drawings, which he adored in his childhood. So, pack all those cute things in a bag and hide them in the attic. Calm green walls are no longer a match for his age, too. We suggest painting stylish two-tone acrylic strips on one of the walls. A modern, small table can replace the large desk. Don’t forget to refresh the bed by repainting the frame white.
A Stylish Bathroom
If you want to save that quasi-historical style and demonstrate your taste, this design is for you. Feel free to experiment with dark colors. Despite the small space, dark brown or black looks very impressive. The white clinker tiles, which resemble brickwork, also match well. The most challenging task here is choosing pictures to decorate the walls.
A Cozy Bedroom
This design is perfect for those who want to change a large bedroom drastically. Redesign the ceiling using plywood and finish it with wooden slats to make it look higher. Replace small lamps with spotlights. Choose warm colors for the furniture. At first glance, the room seems crowded after the makeover, but, in fact, everything there is well thought-out and functional.
An Artist’s Corner
After insulating the room with mineral wool and gypsum board, paint the walls with any moderately bright acrylic. Unleash your imagination! Then, paint the walls with acrylic paint using stencils or just your creativity. In this case, we see an excellent combination of mint, black, and gold colors.
A Bright And Spacious Living Room
To eliminate the abundance of brown, refresh the wood floor with a varnish and remove the brown tiles around the fireplace. Then, plaster the surface and put on some new ceramic tiles. Paint the walls and fireplace with white acrylic.
A Warm Living Room
This room hasn’t changed much, but it looks more attractive after the makeover. Replace the window with a panoramic one, paint the walls warm beige, change the furniture, and pick up the right floor lamps. There is no need to change the floor — cover it with lacquer.
A Room With A Story
This design is a godsend for those with a limited budget who love objects with stories behind them. You can paint the walls and floor yourself without calling a professional or even replace the floor with more textured wood. All the furniture was bought at garage sales or antique shops. Some of them were just artificially aged. Anything that has its own story will look organic in this room.
