Often in life, we become fed up with uniformity. The urge to change is almost always present, and what is the first thing we would like to change in our environment? Our home of course. When we think about it, it would certainly be easiest to pay someone to realize our ideas and remodel our home. But often most people are not in such a situation that they can afford it. Fortunately, there are ways that can help us decorate our home without spending a lot of money.
Luxury is not only a matter of money but of taste and effort. With a few changes, the house may look like a lot has been invested in it without emptying the wallets,
Here are some simple changes that will give your home a new fresh look and to you, a feeling that you have achieved something really good and economical.
Freshen It up With Flowers
It is already known that flowers have a great influence on the environment, refreshing, beautifying, bringing colours and fragrances. It can do the same for your home. You do not need a luxury expensive huge flower arrangement for that.
One or two bouquets from a local store can be quite enough. What matters is how will you arrange those bouquets. First, you can separate the flowers and make smaller bouquets and arrange them around the house, or potted plants can also be a good idea. For a vase or a pot, you can take a jar or bottle, or rearrange an old bowl with a little glue and a few napkins with pretty pictures on them.
If you don’t like anything from the store, you can walk down the street and find a few twigs or plants to take home. You can then casually place the collected branches on a table or in a floor-vase. The time and money you spend is minimal and a little greenery will certainly refresh the space and make the house look like a home.
Throw Down Some Pillows
With decorative pillows, you can quickly and easily change the look of your living room. Or any other room as you wish. Displaying colourful pillows in a discreet way freshen up the neutral sofa by connecting it with other interior colours. Opt for pastel shades, dusty pink, light lilac, round or triangular shapes, you can also choose different materials. There is no end to the options, and generally, every option will be good.
If you are not a fan of colours, you can play with shapes. Different shapes can be found on the market, and if you have skillful hands and know how to sew, you can make them yourself just as you imagine.
Fool the Eye With Curtains
One of the main features of luxury and expensive homes is the high ceiling. If your house does not have this feature, there is a trick that can fool the eye: curtains. Hang a curtain or drapery as close to the ceiling as possible but never right above the window. This will make the space look larger and more open. The bonus trick might be that you can also add sheer curtains. They will soften the light coming through the window and make the room look warmer, cozy and more expensive.
Clutter certainly doesn’t look chic. It’s one thing to have a large shelf full of books and decor, but it’s another thing to have too much of everything on the shelves. Mess does not look nice in any way. Reduce clutter on the shelves, pick out a few things you particularly like and make it look fancy and tidy. If you’re not sure where to start, you can buy small organizers for shelves or drawers. This will keep all things in place and chaos will be avoided. You will also feel better mentally when everything is in the right place – scientifically proven.
Grab a Roller and Add a Fresh Coat
Nothing will change the look of your home so much as the beautifully painted walls and furniture. So get a paint and varnish tool and roll up your sleeves. This can be a DIY project that you will have a lot of fun with. You can paint an entire room or just one wall, however, the change will be more than obvious. Also, old furniture can be transformed into a brand new one with a little effort and colour. This will give your home a whole new look.
Don’t Forget the Rug
Choosing the right rug can do half of the job. In addition to highlighting the furniture, the rug also gives warmth and coziness. As with pillows, with rugs, you can also let your imagination run wild and choose different colours, shapes, and textures. Although you live in a rented apartment, with a small amount of money, with a rug, you can personalize the space as you want.
