Sometimes all your home needs to look different and a lot better than before is rearrangement. If your furniture has been lying around at the same spots for as long as you can remember then you need to move it around and relocate it to give your home a new look.
You can always go outside to find naturally decorative things like rocks, clipping of bushes or flowers. These things will make you feel calmer than usual and add a peaceful feel to your home. You can also take some glass jars or flasks and fill them up with sand, rocks and succulents. This is a great way to incorporate nature into your home.
Before you start designing and decorating, take measurements of the floors and furniture and figure out what goes where. Otherwise you’ll have a pile of things and you wouldn’t know what to do with them.
You can have the best looking furniture and decor but clutter will always take away the charm. If you don’t have a lot of space in your home for storage then you can store things under your bed. Get rid of things that are taking up a lot of space but serve no purpose. Donate the items that you haven’t used in 6 – 12 months. Unless it’s something that has sentimental value to it.
Recycle things. If you have empty jars or tins lying around your kitchen then make useful items out of them. For example you can use tins to organize your stationery items. This way you won’t misplace pens and pencils and everything will have its own separate spot.
If your space is dull and dark then you can use mirrors to brighten it up. Mirrors reflect light and make a space feel bright and airy and they are typically less expensive than artwork. They can also save you a lot of money on electricity.
You should minimize the use of electricity. Always switch off lights and fans when you leave the room. Electricity bills can really create a hole in your wallet if you don’t use it carefully.
If you are tired of your sofas then you can use economical sofa covers to give them a new look. Covers will also protect your sofas from stains.
Nothing adds more color to a space than a beautiful canvas but artwork doesn’t have to be that expensive. You can frame black and white photographs or get paintings from emerging and aspiring art students. Their artwork will take you by surprise. You can also frame your children’s drawings to really personalize your home.
Don’t go overboard with wall decor. Keep it sound and simple. Just because you have wall space doesn’t mean that every inch of it needs to be covered with mirrors or paintings.
An affordable rug can be a great option to give your floors a nice warm and welcoming feel. You can get budget friendly and beautiful handmade rugs online.
