Not everyone can afford to fully redecorate their homes, however, that doesn’t mean they should have to settle for unattractive interiors. Here are ten inspiring and modern ideas for your home:
1. Put wall stickers and decals
A cheap, yet quick and effective way of brightening up a room is to put wall stickers on it. It is simple to execute, and easily adds texture and colour.
2. Spruce up the fireplace
There are many rooms in the house, which contain non-functional fireplaces. Instead of wasting the space, consider installing a fixture or placing ceramic vases in front of it.
3. Use creative lighting
It is so much easier to just follow the norm and stick to traditional lights, however, being creative with lighting can really bring you something beautiful. Be random about the placement of lights, and choose different ones from the store.
4. Hang some frames
Don’t let your home be one of those houses that have an overbearing collection of old photos awkwardly hung on the wall. Instead, you can be a bit more stylish and unconventional by hanging a bunch of empty frames of different colours in a random yet orderly fashion.
5. Use shadow box wall shelves
Shadow boxes, like wall stickers, instantly add to the aesthetics of a room without incurring much cost. A bunch of stylish shadow boxes of varying sizes can be hung on the wall for displaying decoration pieces and vases. You can even leave them empty.
6. Unleash your creativity at the showpieces
Empty counters and tables can often go unnoticed, unless you complement them using showpieces. If you cannot find any tasteful showpieces in the store, consider making them yourself. An easy idea is to put artificial Easter eggs, cocoa beans or jelly beans in a transparent vase or bowl, accompanied by flowers of whatever theme-colour the room is.
7. Decorate your staircase
Staircases are perhaps the most ignored part of the house. If you redo them tastefully, you will find the entire space much more attractive. You can simply use a vibrant paint or wallpaper to make them conspicuous.
8. Paint that ugly fridge
If you don’t find your fridge particularly interesting in regard to its looks, consider using chalkboard paint over it. You can choose either green or black, and write whatever you want on it using a chalk. Not only will it look right out-of-the-box, it will also help you remember things.
9. Give the old chests a makeover
If you have any wooden chests lying around the house, consider painting them in a single matte colour. Using a stencil, you can then easily paint whatever design you want on them, and they will become your very own artistic masterpieces.
10. Make a power wall
One wall of each room could be a bold and vibrant colour to give it the lively look it was missing earlier. The bolder the better! Also known as “accent” walls, power walls can really give each room the boost they deserve.
