A place can quickly lose its charm to the residents after a specific period. Therefore, if you have suddenly come up with an urge to change your home’s aesthetics, it is understandable. Changing your home’s interiors to reshape its outlook can be quite a task. If you are new to home décor and do not know better, it can cost you a fortune.It can be heavy on your pockets, from hiring an interior designer to replacing the items and installing contemporary décor.
However, it does not have to cost you an arm and a leg to turn your home into a comfortable and livelier place. We have compiled a guide for home décor enthusiasts to help them choose the perfect inspiration and themes.
1- Accommodate art
Whether you are a minimalist or adore a bohemian touch, hanging a few pieces of art would never contradict your aesthetic sense. You can start by putting up some artwork, build a wooden framework series, or dedicate a niche to create a gallery wall. However, if making the framework surpasses your designated budget, put your artistic skills to practice, and create DIY frames with washi tapes and printouts.
2 – Declutter
Suppose you wish to create a home space that pleases your eyes and spirit and feels cozy simultaneously. In that case, minimalism is the way to go. It is common for people to go overboard with decorative items, furniture, lighting, and colors. However, your house will start to close in on you once the initial spell of the bohemian look fades. You can still make a statement without stuffing your home with unnecessary items. For instance, consider the seating arrangement and the size of people you usually accommodate for the living room. It is not essential to keep as many sofa sets as there are people; instead, drape a comfy rug with some cushions on the floor. Also, to make more room in your house, you can utilize storage units for placing your heavy and rarely usedstuff. Thus, keeping it secure for your future needs. Keep in mind that there is nothing attractive about clutter, and the more of it you have, the sooner you would get tired of your house.
3 – Install a Bold Wallpaper
Home décor goes beyond changing the paints and floorings. These old-school ideas are not only laborious but can also add up to the expenses. A smart way to redo your walls is by getting a creative wallpaper. Adding wallpapers is a trendy yet timeless way to alter the interior décor. You can choose from various designs like 3D wallpapers, pixy dust designs, plain wallpapers, textured wallpapers, etc. It is a feasible option, especially for individuals who live in a rented place. Washable and removable wallpapers would not displease your property owners.
4 – Manipulate the Lighting
Lighting enhances the overall look of your interior. Adding the right lighting items will bring out the desired look. You do not need to go overboard by installing grand chandeliers or hanging lights on the walls; a little will go a long way. Elegant décor items might please your sight for a few days, but eventually, it will start to make your space look congested. To bring out the charm of your interior design, add warm lighting that compliments the theme. Random sized hanging lamps and lanternsare a brilliant idea to add some glamour to your interior space. However, remember that they are only décor items and should not block the light to the main spots.
5 – Go Green
Air fresheners are good, but they can ruin the aesthetics of your house. A terrific replacement for air fresheners is indoor plants. Indoor plants are an efficient option to improve indoor air quality and enhance the oxygen supply at your home. They will also make your interiors look pleasant. Indoor plants vary from high maintenance, such as flowering plants, to low maintenance desert natives like agaves, silver lilies, air plants, and cactuses.
6 – Go Bohemian
Bohemian means anything that goes against the norms. A minimalistic design might not please everyone. Some of us like organized clutter to add some life to the interior living space. You do not need to stick to a contemporary design for your interior décor. Instead, fuse various styles to bring an aesthetically unique touch to your interiors.
Your house is not just a structure of beams and bricks but a haven built with harmony, love, and dreams. Whether big or small, it needs to make its residents feel at ‘home,’ and a pleasing design is a requisite for a Zen and comfortable space.
