Over time, your home décor starts looking jaded. Paying for new furniture when yours is in mint condition isn’t feasible. What’s more, getting new accessories can stretch the monthly budget too.
However, all is not lost. With a few changes, you can get a brand-new décor without spending a penny. Seems impossible, doesn’t it? Well, let us show you how to make the impossible possible with these tips and tricks. Intrigued? Read on!
1. A Fresh Perspective
Your room will need a total overhaul to bring in a new look. That means rearranging the furniture for a fresh perspective. The accent wall, with the TV, is best left alone, as you don’t want to mess with cable connections and power outlets.
A furniture swap is an easy way to achieve a new look. Find a new home for your chest of drawers. A mirror and a few potted plants on the chest can revamp the look. Old chests or trunks can also breathe life into your décor when piled up on top of each other.
Next, re-position the couch and the throw rugs too. The shawl you bought on your trip north may just be the throw for your couch. Pushing the bed against the wall can create a cozy and romantic corner. A small throw rug at the foot of the bed will give a finishing touch.
2. Find New Homes for Your Collectibles
Swap the paintings in your bedroom with the macrame wall hanging in the living room. Your dried flower arrangement can move to the side table for better impact. Moving around your plants, vases, and statues can dramatically impact your décor.
Your book collection can work wonders as an interesting accessory. This elegant feature can add a touch of academia to the decor. Coffee table books are a perfect addition when placed next to the potted plants.
3. Deal with the Chaos
Sometimes less is more. And if you tend to pick up things from the market because you can’t resist the temptation, you know what we are talking about. These tiny ‘cute’ nuggets can crowd the space, creating a chaotic look. So, keep only a few bold pieces that make a statement on your surfaces.
The same goes for faux flowers; a single arrangement is acceptable, but going overboard with too many flowers doesn’t work. So, in short, de-clutter!
4. Add Plants to the Mix
Plants can elevate the look of your home in a jiffy. However, plants don’t come cheap. You can try a dry arrangement with twigs you find on your walks, or better yet, take cuttings from your friend’s garden and plant them in your pots. And hey, all plants aren’t expensive, and it’s fine to spend a bit on some style statements.
The pothos, or the money plant, grows very fast and is very easy to maintain. All you need to do is cut small sections from the tendrils to start a new pot. But trim the tendrils regularly to maintain a neat look.
5. Give Your Walls a Once Over
The artwork from your bedroom will give a refreshing touch to the living décor. The same goes for the rest of the artwork in your home. By shuffling them around, you can spice up the décor of your home.
You can even create unique wall art by framing old brocade saris, quirky pieces of leftover fabric from a stitching project, or pressed flowers. However, make sure to pick matching colors to give your home an astounding look.
You can also try a picture gallery with a selection of small artwork or family photos in monochromes.
Just thinking about giving your room a revamp can get the creative juices flowing. But hey, before you start shifting furniture. Sit down for a moment to chalk out a rough plan. You don’t want to lose steam midway!
