So, you want to improve your home decor but you don’t want to spend a fortune or an absolute age getting it right. You’ve come to the right place! Here, you’ll find a few really easy ways to improve your home decor so you can make your decor look better in a flash – sometimes in just a few minutes! Don’t believe us? Read on to find out what you can do!
Pull That Furniture Away From The Wall – Time Taken: 5 Minutes
A very simple one to begin with: simply pull that furniture away from the wall. It’s such an easy tip and can stop a room from looking claustrophobic in seconds. What’s the point in having one of the most beautiful dining room sets or sofas if you’re just going to shove it against a wall? You should be showing it off! Even just pulling it away from the wall by a few inches can make a massive difference.
Make sure you use proper form when rearranging your furniture so as not to hurt yourself.
Add More Texture – Time Taken: 5 Minutes (Plus a Quick Shopping Trip)
Adding more texture can be a very quick fix, but you may need to go shopping for the elements you need first. Cushions, rugs, plants, and throws are great ways to add texture to a room. If your home decor isn’t popping right now, it could be because it’s devoid of texture.
Take Away Elements That Create Visual Clutter – Time Taken: 2 Minutes
Have a proper look around your home, or get somebody with a keen eye to do it for you. You may have small ornaments and pieces of clutter that are creating a visual mess in your home without you even realizing it. It’s usually better to have one larger ornament, for example, than lots of small ones.
Paint an Accent Wall – Time Taken: Varies Depending On Ability
Painting an accent wall is a quick and easy fix, but the time it takes will depend on a few things. You may want to tape up around the wall so it’s perfect, and cut in at the edges and the ceiling first so that you can paint without worrying about it looking messy. In some cases, you may even need to sand your wall.
If you can’t be bothered with any of this, remember; you can always hire a painter to do it for you!
Add Artwork/Pictures Of Friends And Family – Time Taken: Varies Depending On Lay Out
Adding artwork and pictures of your friends and family will bring much more personality to your home. Artwork should be considered a must, while pictures of your friends and family can be laid out on the wall in either a uniformed or eclectic style depending on what you prefer. Don’t have frames dotted all over the place, as again, this creates that cluttered look and is very old fashioned. To avoid making too many holes in your walls, practice laying out the pieces on the floor the way you want them first.
