The home we live in should be a safe space, a temple of love, and above all, a dream come true!
They say, our homes reflect the deepest secrets of our personality. For instance, you would find a well-maintained, neat and clean house belonging to a responsible and successful individual. Lazy people are often known for the ill-kept lawns, torn-apart furniture, and dirty bedsheets.
If you were to visit an artist’s house, you would find a lot of art there. We believe every human is an artist, so why not redefine your house in a way that it speaks volumes for the art you keep within. So, how do we do that? Self-decorating the house can be a good choice, and nearly any kind of remodelling and redecorating work can be cheaper when you do it by yourself. So, if you have decided to try out the DIY decoration methods, this article would drive you to extreme perfection. Read on:
Why go on a buying spree, when you already have the accessories you need! Old fabric, broken vases, CD covers, plastic spoons – let’s start with refurbishing them into a creative masterpiece. Your old clothes could be cut into making a new and peppy sofa cover. Plastic spoons and old CDs could be used to make a quirky light piece or a photo frame.
#2 Go green:
Yes, we are huge in helping the environment, as you can already sense by the first two points. However, going eco-friendly has another advantage: It gives your home a variety of options. For instance, you could go for a vertical garden, and plant a bunch of colourful flowering plants or edible herbs and shrubs by your balcony. For those who are blessed with more space, a well-kept lawn is in the cards.
#3 Have a Photo wall:
Selfies are perhaps as essential to the millennial gen as Oxygen! Jokes aside, there couldn’t be a better way to boast of your beautiful home than to allow your visitors a photo opportunity. Hang a dozen superhero posters, go for a 3D print, or have a colourful rainbow beaming across the wall – your choice! We love whiteboard walls where your guests can leave their notes or better yet doodles behind.
#4 Rearrange the whole thing:
Perhaps, the most economical of them all! You can change the whole appearance of your house by changing everything about it. Move your bookshelves and study tables, switch accessories, put out a different set of crockery on display for the kitchen’s appeal and so on. Reposition your furniture and have a new abode now!
#5 Furniture fun!
There is nothing that says creative quite like quirky furniture. Big old sofa sets, heavy chairs are out! You could invest in modernistic furniture, such as folding sofa cum bed sets, which not only provide a fresh take on furniture but also save you a lot of space. There is a lot you can do with your furniture. To know more, click here!
#6 A little spot for paws and claws:
Animal lovers, yes, there is a way for you too! Although living with a pet can be messy and chaotic for your property’s looks, you could always get the right props for your furry friends. A cute little comfy and colourful bed for the paws of your favourite in the world, or if you are a tranquil bird watcher, creative bird feeders hanging in your lawn or balcony could make your home a sweeter home!
There is no restraint to how you can rejuvenate your home. Allow your imagination to be free, and let your home be the canvas for your heart’s creation.
