How to Elevate Your Home Décor

If your home is feeling a little drab, you’re not alone. Whether you’ve recently moved in or you’re redecorating after living in the same abode

If your home is feeling a little drab, you’re not alone. Whether you’ve recently moved in or you’re redecorating after living in the same abode for a while, there are some small things you can do that make a big difference.

Read on for our top tips on how to elevate your home and make all your friends jealous!

Add some statement lighting

Each year, around 2 million people in the UK develop seasonal affective disorder. One way to counteract this is with bright lighting. If a lightbox seems a little extreme, why not look into some statement lighting instead?

Statement lighting will immediately grab the attention of any house guests and can be a real conversation starter. You’ll just need to carefully think about what sort of lighting goes best with the room. For example, if you’re looking for a centrepiece, you might want to choose a glamorous chandelier. If you’re wanting to create a cosy, relaxed space, a standing lamp might be a better option.  

Add wall art

Wall art can be the perfect addition to your home to add a vibrant and cosy feel. Be sure to pick the correct style wall art to suit your homes style, and the main choices would be the colour of the wall art and the frame type. Many modern houses choose to use canvas prints which can also come with an additional floating frame to add another level of style. Browse a great selection and get inspired at Printivart, who offer a wide range of wall art in a variety of colours and styles. 

Secondly, the right colours must be chosen to tie in with your current décor. Look at the colour scheme of your home and pick a piece of wall art with some main colours that are the same. If you’re opting to also have a floating frame, this can also come in a variety of colours; the most popular being black or white. This colour should also tie in with your home décor style!

Re-vamp your furniture

We’re not saying you need to throw away all your furniture and replace it with a new suite. But adding some new pieces into your scheme can make all the difference. Whether that’s a statement chair, some new scatter cushions or even a statement rug!

If you’re looking to save money during a cost of living crisis, you don’t need to buy these items new. Some of the best finds can be sourced from second-hand shops or bought online.  You can even give upcycling a go if you’re handy with a paintbrush – it’s a great way to create something unique on a budget.

Add plants

If you’re looking for an affordable way to add a little bit of pizzazz to your space, consider some plants.

Houseplants have a range of benefits. From improving your mood, reducing stress and increasing your productivity levels when you work from home to refining the air quality in your room. But they also look fantastic.

As long as you remember to water them and occasionally give them a new lease of life in a fresh pot, they’re an affordable way to add texture and character to your home.

Increase natural light

It might not always be practical to add new windows or glass doors to bring in more light. But there are a few things you can do to maximise the natural light you do have. For example, by simply removing heavy drapes or blinds from your windows, you can increase the natural light that comes into the room. The same goes for furniture – by moving any pieces blocking the windows, you’ll be surprised at the difference it can make.

Sounds and fragrances

Finally, scents and sounds are important when it comes to creating the perfect ambience. Generating a sense of immersion and stimulation, scents and sounds will pull the whole room together and keep things cosy.  

The bottom line is that the opportunities are endless if you want to elevate your home décor on a budget. The real question is: what will you do first?
