The directions of the retro renovation
Improving your home with some retro additions is not a straight road. Whenever someone mentions retro, all people think about one thing, and that is 60s styled wood furniture. But that is just one way you can renovate your home. You can also go for the 50s or 60s sci-fi retro look that will include many neat futuristic ideas from that time.
You can also go for that disco era and use hanging ball chairs. Avoid wood and aim at rubber and metal as it will enhance the experience. The bubble chair and rainbow colored cushions will add to it.
As you can see, the sky is only limit when it comes to retro style. You don’t have to limit the home improvement on recent or mainstream retro design. You can go for some “wicked” designs that will remind people of thousand and one night or something similar. You got hundreds of years of different designs and thousands of ideas from those ages. Use them to create your retro style.
Some general retro style home improvements
If you are one of those people that don’t want to think outside of the box, when it comes to home improvement, you can follow the mainstream and use ideas that other people utilize. This isn’t a bad thing as there are some neat ideas people use in retro house improvements.
Retro wallpaper is in high need in last several years. It turns a white room into something that belongs to the past. To improve on this idea, you just have to add several vintage chairs and a mid-century desk. Use several old lamps to complete the project. These several vintage items will turn your room from a 21-century space into the 60s room straight out of old movies.
The walls of your house should be filled with pictures. If you are going for a retro feel, then you should look for old photos and intricate retro framework. You can find those in many flea markets. You can also put black and white photos on the walls as well, but keep them in small black frames.
Another good idea is to buy cross-stitch pieces and turn them into the art. Frame them cheap and old looking frames and place them on the walls of your home.
