An interior layout which is same from year to year can make you and family members bored. A bustle and busy schedule each day is often an excuse to not have time to give a refresher on home decorating. But if you want to spend just one day just to redecorate your interior, it will give a significant difference in the overall look of the house. There is no need to buy a set of new furniture, repaint the walls, or replace the curtain because they will take too long and cost a lot of money.
If you have limited budget and time, simply remove and add certain parts only. The slightest change can even give a fresh new look in the room. Know how to redecorate your house with six simple tips from She Knows.
1 . Replace one or two set of outdated furniture
You do not need to buy a set of new furniture to give the room a fresh new look. Just replace the one that started outdated with new ones. For example, if a table in the living room already looks fragile due to many years of use, replace it with a small table in an edgy style or vintage. One set of small furniture will not make you spend a lot of money. You can find any information about furniture stores which offers low price furniture, or you can visit the garage sale.
2. Use mirrors
Mirror can give a great effect on your home. Large mirrors will make the room seem more spacious. In addition, the mirrors can also reflect light more beautifully, which means adding a whole new atmosphere in the interior of the house.
3. Change the lighting design
Sometimes, replacing the lighting design with the new one can bring major changes to the look of the house. Replace bright white fluorescent lights with pink or orange fluorescent lights which seem softer. Soft glow will make the whole house look more beautiful and comfortable to see. You can put a light on top or bottom of the painting / drawing / photo for a dramatic effect, as if it were in the art gallery.
4. Display paintings or other wall arts
You don’t have to buy expensive paintings from famous artists to be displayed on the wall. Simply choose a picture, sketch, or painting that you like. The types may vary, ranging from from abstract paintings, comical drawings or retro posters. Select the style that best suits your home design, and place it in a pretty frame.
5. Use rugs for flooring decoration
Do not forget to update your home by decorating the floor. Choose a rug with unique motifs, or that you like and cover your floor with it. Each motif and color of the rug can give a different effect on the room. A motif with large graphic forms will make a spacious room feel closer. Meanwhile, a small motif with soft colors will make a small room feel more spacious.
6. Use bookshelves
A bookshelf has double functions which are as storage and as home decor. You can use it to put books or display. With a simple arrangement, your bookshelf can make your home more stylish and attractive.
7. Display some cushions
Beautiful cushions can fill a void in the room and are easily combined and match with other home accessories. Since they are very affordable and available in various sizes, shapes and colors, they are the most appropriate and practical components to change the decor of the house. Cushions can be used as components to cheer up or neutralize the room decor. Rooms with wall hangings or rugs which are full of motif may only require two medium-sized cushions with plain colors. Meanwhile, a minimalist room may use more cushions with bright colors or large pattern motifs.
