Are you bored of how your house looks and want to change it up a bit? Have you just moved into a new house and need some inspiration for decorating because you are looking for something fun and interesting?
Decorating your house can be so much fun, and modernity is always a good thing, especially if you’re changing up the look and style of your house to be more suited to you personality. There’s just one big problem; decorating is so expensive. There are so many guides out there that suggest the most expensive items to buy, or difficult to follow DIY tips that require a lot of costly parts, and not everyone can follow along or keep up with the expensive trends. This will always take the fun out of decorating and make it seem like a pointless or tedious task in the end, leading to results that you don’t enjoy.
If you are looking for inspiration, here are a few decorating tips that anyone can follow.
Use wall art
Walls are the most neglected and least decorated part of people’s houses because people typically associate wall art with being expensive original paintings, and this just isn’t the case. There are so many different things that you can put on your walls to liven up your house and centre your style around, from affordable luxury art like posters, to canvasses, or even decorative plates. All of these come in a variety of sizes and are generally much more affordable than a painting.
On top of all that, these can also come in a variety of different designs to suit each and every individual person and they are not just limited to posters of famous singers or old granny plates with flowers on them. There truly is something for everyone to put on their walls and they don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to get it.
Paint it up
Most people, when it comes to painting their walls, go straight to painters to get the help for it and completely pass on the idea of doing it themselves. This is a completely unnecessary step unless you have super high walls and you just can’t reach them with the equipment available to you. Hiring a painter, while effect and not time consuming at all, is just an extra expense to you, and if you’re trying to save a penny here and there, it is so easy to just do it yourself.
Painting your calls is a great way to change up the look of your living space with a plethora of different colours and finishes to choose from. On top of this, you can even go above and beyond and create your own unique accent all with different designs and patterns for a unique look. When painting your walls it is best to stick to a neutral tone in order to maintain the homey feel and ensure that everything else in the room will most likely match and not clash.
Outdoor living rooms
One thing that you could do, that may seem a little unorthodox, is to create an outdoor living room, or a space where you and the family can gather outside on comfortable furniture and just relax. An outdoor living room is the perfect place to spend those beautiful sunny weekend days, taking in the fresh air and enjoying the outdoors. This doesn’t have to be expensive and you don’t have to buy luxury furniture, just the basic to keep you comfy and happy while sipping on your afternoon drink.
Natural light in the kitchen
These days, people live for natural live shining through their houses, and truly appreciate the bright ness and airiness that it has to offer the house and the people living in it. This includes your kitchen too. Get rid of those old fashioned drapes over your window and replace them with something lighter and more modern that can be opened during the day and closed at night if wanted.
Allowing natural light into your kitchen is a fantastic way to open up a space and make it feel more lively and fresh. This is a great way to start your morning and there is nothing quite like the sun hitting your skin at breakfast time to wake you up a bit.
