Redecorating your home doesn’t mean you’ll have to renovate or take on time-consuming projects. Create fresh, stylish interiors with these five hassle-free tips…
1. Window treatments
Window treatments play a huge role when it comes to the look and feel of a space. Swapping your old curtains for a new set can be all the change your room needs.
Inject some color into your home by choosing a bright fabric or, for the more adventurous, a bold print.
You may opt to have your window treatment custom-made. On the other hand, ready-made curtains for standard window sizes are also available at most department stores.
2. Beddings and pillows
The bed is a major focal point, with the bedding providing style and interest. Simply changing your bedding can transform the look of your bedroom. It’s also a good idea to buy several sets of different designs, so you get a fresh look each time you change your sheets.
For other rooms with seating areas such as the living room or the entertainment room, decorative pillows add a dash of interest to the space. Change your pillow covers every so often to update your room’s design.
3. Wall art
Accent walls and long stretches of hallways typically have some form of wall art to add interest to the space. Consider changing your wall art to create a new focal point.
Don’t limit yourself to actual art pieces. Experiment with unconventional décor such as beautiful china or rugs on the wall.
4. Cabinets and drawers
The practical foundation of every house, storage can also be made stylish and beautiful. Cabinet and drawer faces may be decorated using molding or wallpaper.
Repainting your cabinets in a bright color can create a huge impact. Don’t forget the interiors of your cabinets and drawers too. Paint the back wall of your shelves or add patterned wallpaper for a surprising effect.
Another good idea is to line your shelves and drawers with wallpaper or gift wrapping paper.
As the final touch to any interior space, accessories add character and charm. Inject personality into your home by using accessories that have a special meaning for you.
Personal collections and travel souvenirs can help adorn your space and make for great conversation pieces as well.
