We all dream of decorating our house, but the costs involved hold many of us back. For many of us, décor and expenses go hand in hand. Worry not, it doesn’t necessarily have to be so, as we bust that myth and present you with easily implementable home décor tips, that will help you redecorate your home without burning a hole in your pocket.
So, without further ado let’s see how we can transform our house into our dream home.
- Color & Texture Play
Don’t be afraid of trying different colors, shades, and textures. Experiment a little. Indulge in complementary colors. Before finalizing the colors, however, the best approach would be to consider how the new colors blend into any room’s existing furniture and décor scheme. Choosing bright shades for your living room can make it look spacious and provide a warm and cozy vibe, compensating for the lack of natural light. Although the choices are endless, make sure you don’t go overboard with them. Paint one wall as a focus area and the others in a lighter, neutral tone. You can also choose between patterns, textured, and monochrome colors.
- Furniture Fundamentals
The next major step when deciding on wall colors is the furniture that goes along with it. Furniture is an expensive investment in any home and requires a good pairing with its surrounding environment. Say, a walnut brown cabinet set against a darker wall is a designer’s nightmare. Consider using bright sofas or accent chairs to act as centerpieces.
Rearranging the furniture can also help in transforming a place completely. Sometimes, breaking away from the norms can give exciting results. If your sofa is facing the TV, change it into an interactive place facing a chair, and a table in between. This will also ensure that the guests in your home feel welcome.
- Lighten Up
No, just lighten up. ’Coz this is one aspect that doesn’t require much of your investment, still mostly ignored in modern homes. Lighting is as crucial as any other element of the décor and good lighting can change and transform an area by creating an impression of space. Interior designers use light and shade to give a room a comforting vibe but also to make it dramatic and ambient. Suppose we want artwork on a wall to be the highlight, we will use a downlight to focus on the artwork but with combining a darker area around it- this will make the artwork a focal point.
