Renovations are never a stress-free experience. You might have been living in the upstairs part of your house for weeks or months, dealing with construction people and noise; worse, you might have been put out of the house altogether. But it's over, you have the joy of decoration, at last, the creative part. Read on to get some original ideas for your space. 

A Reading Corner 

Now your home has been renovated you have the honor of dressing it up in the style you fancy and populating it with eye-catching ornaments. But what about the key question – where are you going to relax? Where around going to curl up with a cat and read for hours? 

The answer, quite simply a reading room – or even a reading corner if space comes at a premium. What you need is a comfy sofa – perhaps a corner sofa – a tall lamp, and a wooden coffee table just the right height. 

Black and Gold 

When someone suggests you paint your living room black you might think the idea is mad, black denotes all kinds of horribleness, nightmares, uncertainty, death. But don't dismiss it out of hand, done correctly a black living room can be unique and special. 

If you're going to go with black there's no halfway house, you have to go to the extreme. A heavy dark black is always better than lighter hues and when coupled with golden doorknobs and lampstands, the room will really pop

Antique Pieces 

There are two ways you can go with your newly renovated home space, you can match everything up and make it linear and neat, or you can mismatch things to give it a quirky creative appeal. If you decide on the latter there are some antique trends to keep an eye on

These antique trends include heritage antiques, unusable antiques for upcycling, and original books. If the idea of antiques in your home is something that appeals to you, these trends are the best way to stay on track. Since they are trending at the moment pieces in these categories won't be hard to find. 

A Modern Fireplace 

Some time ago there was a trend towards blocking up your fireplace during a renovation – that seems like a mad idea now with so much hype around fireplaces and their potential. It's true, a fireplace can be re-purposed in so many ways, it can even be repurposed as a fireplace. 

All this means is that instead of having smoke billowing out of a chimney into the carbon-sensitive atmosphere, you have a small ethanol fireplace or fire table that gives you warmth and isn't as harmful to the planet.

Accent Walls 

Whether you have a sure idea about your post-renovation living space or not it's always beneficial to consider an accent wall. Why? Because accent walls give your home a new dimension by allowing you to contrast colors. The best part is they are fully flexible and you can change chameleon-like according to your moods.
