In the meantime, here’s a list of small interior changes you can make:
Bring a natural touch to your home with green accents. They could be fake plants, that don’t require any maintenance or real plants that can increase the oxygen levels of your home. Moreover, not only for interiors, but air plants are the new trends for the outdoors, namely your balcony or garden.
For indoor plants, try choosing those that don’t take too much of your time to maintain. You can even pair it with multicolored leaves, such as purple, and some floral elements too. Either way, it definitely spruces up the atmosphere of your space.
Some rooms are large, and if you’re staying in a studio, then sectioning off the area through room dividers is a good option. Dividers come in a wide range, right from folding screens to efficient bookcases. Dividers add a touch of personality to your room while giving you the privacy you need. In the mood for adventure? Try making your own DIY divider.
When choosing the divider make sure that it fits in with your room and that the color tones match. Always keep in mind the shape of your room and buy your divider accordingly. Overall, it’s an inexpensive way to transform your abode.
Make your bedroom lighting chic
The bedroom’s an integral part of your home, but it’s often ignored in terms of decor. But if you really look at it, it’s where you spend most of your time, and it needs an upgrade. We know you don’t want to spend much on renovating your bedroom, and a great way to do this without too much effort is by changing your lighting. A pendant light or statement lamp can make a true difference. Not only for your bedroom but for other rooms as well.
Get a bright rug
If your walls are white and your furniture is monotoned, then spice things up a bit with a vivid rug. A color-pop can serve as the main attraction anywhere, especially in your interior space. Small interior changes such as these can bring a lovely, cozy touch and will also garner compliments from your guests.
Place throw pillows
Throw pillows make everything more comfortable and chic. Dress up your living room with a range of bright, elegant, or fun throw pillows that are tactile and imbibe various textures.
Bring out your personality
It’s all well and good to have a home that mimics Pinterest, but where’s your personality? You need to turn up the comfort quotient of your interiors with personalized photos, a hanging photo wall, cute DIY frames, and more. Are you into hobbies such as playing music? Well, why don’t you place some musical motifs around your place? Love traveling, give your room a souvenir facelift.
Unique wall hangings
Wall hangings truly add another dimension to your interiors. Often, we buy table runners but don’t ever use or look at them again. Instead of letting this go to waste, you can use it as a wall hanging instead. A simply DIY and voila, you’ve got your new wall hanging. Meanwhile, if you have old cushion covers, you can use them as well.
Fancy storage options
By fancy, we don’t mean expensive, but decorative enough to stand out in your space. In case you use, for example, white plastic bins for storage, why don’t you opt for natural-hued baskets instead? Not only do they add a nice touch, but they are also sustainable.
Make your bookcase more appealing
A normal bookcase has rows of straight books and nothing else. Keep it fun by placing books in different positions. Add some trinkets, memorabilia, candles, or more to spice it up a bit.
Make a photo wall
While you might have framed photos around the house, why don’t you make a gallery wall? This means placing the framed photos on your wall ins a specific aesthetic. Before starting, try doing it on the floor and see how it turns out. Then, use this arrangement as a guide to place on your wall.
Your sheets can make all the difference
Another quick and handy tip is changing your bedsheet. Don’t you feel amazing when you step into a hotel room and the first thing you see is pure white bedding? Maybe you could try the monotone look. If you’re going for something more colorful, then go all out and opt for patterns. Small interior changes like this make all the difference.
Opt for throws
Is your sofa looking way more outdated than usual, or are you tired of looking at the same design for ages now? Mix it up with a throw. Place it on top of your older sofas and chairs for an unforgettable look. The best types of throws bring a lovely sense of tactility and chunky knits or sheepskin. This layered look is a great addition to give your living room a dose of aesthetic fun.
Make your center table a true attraction
Your center table is the meeting point of your living room and needs to stand out. Use it to place trinkets, small sculptures, crystals, lamps, and more. You can also place books and magazines on top to make the overall feeling cozier.
