Your home is your retreat! It is the place we all go back to after a hectic day at work. It is a place where we relax, rejuvenate and experience happy times. However for you to be able to do so, you need to ensure that this personal space has all the essential elements to make it comfortable. Sometimes homeowners are on a right budget and are unable to undertake expensive makeovers or hire professional designers. Here in this blog we share a few hacks that shall completely transform the way your home looks without burning a hole in your pocket.
• Choosing paneled art for the living room
Opt for paneled art for one of the walls of your living room. Triptychs are a great idea and they add instant class to the space. You can either have an original piece of art or download one from the internet and get a high resolution print in an extra large size and frame it!
• Area rugs
Place area rugs wherever you can. They give an instant makeover and bigger the rug the better it is as it gives an illusion of space. Go for neutral colors as these tend to go along with all kinds of interior decors. If you choose a very specific color or design, it will work more as a limiting factor rather than a liberating one.
• Fewer Accessories
If you have book shelves or other stands place single eye catching pieces or artifacts on each of the shelves instead of keeping too many knickknacks. Placing too many things will clutter the space while keeping it minimalist will add an element of spaciousness.
• Create focal points
Creating focal points in a room makes it extremely attractive. You can either choose wall art, wall paper or texture a single wall or color one single wall with an eye catching color. It is easiest to change the look of a room by working upon any one of the walls to create focus. Simply working on one wall is also a budget makeover without you having to shell out hundreds of dollars. You can also add accents like a quirky lamp or patterned odd shaped pillow, pillow shams, etc.
• Experiment with window coverings
You can try out different window coverings as they play a major role in how a room looks. If you are lucky enough to have natural light in your room, then choose window coverings that complement it. Choose from drapes, curtains, blinds, shades, etc. to match the existing interiors.
• Play with colors
Do not stick to one particular color scheme. Instead play with colors and infuse splashes of color here and there with accessories. However, remember not to overdo lest you turn your room into a color box!
