If the thought of revamping your home to elevate the style around the house seems like too daunting a task to you, causing you to postpone the plan constantly, then let us tell you — it isn’t. A plan of action, lots of research, local sourcing of amazing products and decor to go around your house, and some simple steps can lead you to have a brilliant, refreshing, new look for your new home. You can elevate your style, touch upon the interior, or completely change the look and feel of a particular space with minute changes. So, keep reading to know five inexpensive ways to cast the interior-pixie magic on your home!
1. Invest in plants
Getting greenery inside your living space is the best way to give your space a fresh touch. Add a tall plant in the corner of your living room to accentuate the high ceilings, add aerial planters for your walls between rooms to make the space look sleek and spacious, get potted plants for your study room or table to give it that much-needed freshness, or simply, add plants around the house to add that pop of color!
2. Light is essential
It is the easiest way to make your house look cleaner, spacious, and instantly better. Get window treatments in lighter tones to make the room look fresher. Get shutters that allow partial light in when it is too sunny to leave the window open completely.
If possible, you could even get your window cut out to be bigger. It is cheaper than getting one from scratch. However, learn more about the bearing of the wall and the construction before taking this step.
3. Get decluttering & cleaning
Decluttering and cleaning might be something you do before moving or making space for that big piece of furniture you buy. However, decluttering and cleaning is a great way to figure out what you can throw out. It makes space in your home, helps the space look fresh and new, and lets you figure out how much space you have to get something new!
4. Get new, multi-use furniture
Often we seek furniture that is solely designed for a single function or room. We get a large dining table that cannot be used anywhere else, a mesh trolly or cart that always has to be in the kitchen, or a patio table that looks like it belongs outside, and hence, you never get it to any of the rooms inside. Don’t restrict yourself.
Get furniture that you can move around, such as cozy seating area chairs, funky stools, a side table, or perhaps, an earthy ottoman. These furniture are always light on the pocket and can be found in sales, flea markets, or handloom fairs. Since they fit in any scene around the house, you can mix and match and juggle furniture every few months to give your home a new, elegant look.
5. Throwaway pillows and change the fabrics
Changing small things around the house makes a huge difference. Changing your drapes, pillow covers, and bedsheets, upholstery fabrics, etc., can help elevate the look of your home instantly. You can match the color or patterns of the fabrics in one room or get a set too. Getting a drapery fabric by the yard would be beneficial in such cases.
While at it, throw in some new pillows with eye-catching designs to bring a fresh pop of color and give the room a cozy feel.
Revamping the look of a room or home doesn’t have to be pocket-draining. There are many inexpensive ways you can do so. Start by looking at Pinterest boards; take a walk around the markets, or visit cafes with cozy seating arrangements to find inspiration for your home.
