The new year has just begun, and its time when most of us often think about ways to spruce up our homes. By now you might be looking at your house which is looking dull with the decorations down or perhaps you might have returned from your family and friends’ houses that have had that oomph factor and you have already pulled up your socks. So here are some clever and cost-effective ways to transform your home savvy.
1.Add A Dash Of Paint
A fresh coat of paint on your houseâs interior and exterior is the most cost-effective way to refresh your home.Always go for the neutral colors for larger spaces to play safe. If you canât afford to paint your entire house, consider freshening up by painting a wall in a rich color to add warmth and focus to the room.My personal favourites are
- Deep Teal and Caramel
- Forest Green and Earthy Brown
- Deep Maroon
2. It’s All About Curtains
Curtains always speak for your home.Make sure you invest right amount in changing your curtains or blinds as these guys instantly spruce up the decor quotient. There is absolutely no need to splurge money on sheers ,as you can get them online like amazon, flipkart, in reasonable prices with proper measurement guide and they spoil you with choices. Don’t go for busy prints as they make rooms look small.
3. Revamp Your Furniture
Customizing furniture like side table ,dresser or armchairs might be little tedious,but trust me its totally worth. Ask the experts at your locality, which paint will work best for your furniture.Or go for the distressed look with blues,it just brings a whole new vintage look to your home.Re-covering couches is a simple way to give your furniture a fresh look and adding floor rugs and throw rugs allows you to add colour, texture and interest to your living spaces.
4. Add Greenery To Your Room
You can never go wrong with plants.Not only they keep your home pollution free but also add a freshness and brightness to any dull corner. There is a list of indoor plants which act as air purifiers and are dirt cheap.Try it and you will never regret.
- Golden Pothos
- Bamboo Palm
- Golden Money Plant
5. Blend Cultures
I love to blend in the cultures and not strictly stick to a particular type of decor.And from my personal experience , it simply reflects my versatility. Just imagine by taking ideas from different cultural interiors will open gate to so many options.For example :You can combine traditional couch with cane or rattan chairs and spruce it up with some ottomans to bring a twist to the otherwise regular decor.
