There are many who have amazing plans to liven up their homes but hardly do so. They feel that decorating a home require a lot of time and money. However, there are many affordable home decorating ideas that can be put to use and completed over a weekend. One great step to start is re-arranging the furniture by pulling them away from the walls. For example, the sofa can be arranged diagonally across the living room to make the room look wider. It is a warm and inviting layout, worth a try.
While decorating a home, it is important to paint a wall with your favorite color and then make it the focal point. Top it up with an interesting wall hanging and move a nice piece of furniture just in front of it to enhance the contrast. Putting a new coat of paint or simply cleaning the existing mouldings and doors can instantaneously instil a fresh look to the interiors. Don’t forget the baseboards though. You can also apply new colours and visit the local improvement store for useful utensils.
Keep in mind that bright colours combined with smart lighting can instantly produce a mood of cheerfulness. Moreover, greenery always adds a fresh breath of air to any room. Therefore, bring in the plants. If green thumbs are not available, try the silk plants and trees. One can only tell the difference if observed minutely. Make use of natural light as much as you can. Natural light has a tremendous effect on human mood. Be it wooden or synthetic, using moulds, paint and fabric creatively around doors and windows will do magic.
It is also a good idea to use a mirror. Try and position it in such a way that it reflects something nice and interesting, could be a mural or a painting. Hang pictures that reflect your personality. Ornate frames are a good choice. But keep it simple and avoid a clutter. You can minimise cluttering by adding vertical space with bookcases and shelves in closets or other areas. You can define a conversation area by using an area rug. Lay it beneath your coffee table, and choose a rug that complements your room.
