Pocket-friendly décor tips


Transforming the look of your home needn’t be an expensive affair

There are endless ways to revamp your house within a budget. Here are a few innovative ideas to revamp your home:

1 The first step is to collect all the clutter in the house. There are things hidden in a faraway corner of the house that can now be used for a different purpose. Rather than having a plastic soap dish in the kitchen, find a nice ceramic bowl that was not being used and turn it into a fun accessory for the kitchen sink.

2 You might have spare cloth material or probably a bed sheet that does not go with the shade of a room and you can turn them into single curtains. Floral print curtains or vibrant prints are good options for a study, work room, or a bare kitchen window. If not a curtain, the cloth can be easily turned into a table cover with lace trimmings on the side that can be attached with a simple stitch pattern.

3 Redecorating upholstery is fun too. DIY (Do It Yourself) projects make it an innovative way of spending your time and also creating an exclusive accessory for your home. Turn old pillow covers into laundry bags or re-decorate old photo-frames in the house by painting them with a bright colour and turn a drab space into a corner with energetic vibes.

4 Old wine bottles can be turned into stunning lamp options, all one has to do is drill a tiny hole with a glass pin cutter and insert little fairy lights. Not only did you enjoy your drink, but now you would have a set of beautiful lamps for the table too. Glass bottles can easily be turned into hanging lamps as well, making them sophisticated lighting alternatives.

5 While creating a cozy corner or even while rearranging cushions and accessories in the living room, keep an odd grouping in mind. Even on ledges and mantles where you feel like re-arranging candle stands and vases, an odd number with variation in height and colour will make a lasting impression on guests who walk into the room.

6 Choose a wall in the house, preferably one that is more visible to people who walk in, and create a statement look for it. Either use mirrors or photo frames of varied sizes, you could arrange a console with a vase with fresh flower in it. The monotony of a passage breaks with such a decor that is not heavy on the pocket or tiring to set.

Transforming the look of your home can be done with many such ideas. It is all about taking an initiative and bringing creativity back into your hassled and overworked life.

Very often we have thoughts about rearranging the home furniture or redecorating rooms, but simply refrain thinking it would be a costly activity if indulged in. Now with these tips, you can go ahead and think of more ideas that can convert your boring home layout into an exciting space to be.
