You have no idea what an abandoned mirror or an old wooden bench can do to change the look of your home completely.
Read on the following tips to decorate your home without spending money at all.
RE-ARRANGE YOUR FURNITURE.
This simple step of re-arranging your furniture will change the look of your living room. Try experimenting with different positions of the furniture which gives a new depth to the look. Never underestimate the power a simple change in the position of that couch or coffee table has! You may get the help of the internet to know about the basics of furniture arrangement.
THROW SOME PILLOWS
Pillows and cushions look great when piled up together. So if you have several pillows scattered everywhere in your house, collect them all and divide them according to the color coordination and complementation with respect to the areas you want to use them. Throw 4-5 comfy cushions on the sofa and appealingly style them.
USE YOUR OLD PAINT BUCKETS.
If you have some old paint buckets with paint inside it, even though a little quantity can be of great use to you. Use the paint to give an entirely new look to that old wooden bench or stool that is lying abandoned in your storehouse. Throw a brightly colored cloth over it and set it in your balcony or hall.
GET STRATEGIC WITH YOUR CURTAINS.
Curtains can make or mar the look of your room depending upon their placement. Make sure you place your curtain rods little above the window/door and allow the curtain to touch the floor. This makes your room look bigger and more beautiful.
Mirrors are a great and a cheap way to decorate your home. If you have a number of mirror around your house, use them productively! Hang small mirrors on the wall, and place long ones inclined on the floor. The long inclined mirrors give a taller look to the room. And, mirrors greatly increase the amount of light in the room making it look brighter.
Bring out the old frames you have and also the existing ones and set them properly for decorating your home. Arrange the frames in odd numbers and in a puzzled manner which makes it look more interesting than evenly arranged picture frames.
DINING TABLE TRICKS.
Throw a DIY-runner in the middle of your dining table to make it look fancy. And if your dining table is small, this will make your table look bigger and better as well. Place small items like salt and pepper boxes on your small dining table with a small flower vase. Adding smaller things will make your small table look more prominent than before.
SHOWCASE YOUR CARDS.
Every household must have old greeting and birthday cards. This cute little paperwork can improve the look of your room when used creatively. You may clip them Inna jute string or place them over nightstands or atop the fireplace and instantly give a nice touch to your home.
STACK YOUR BOOKS.
If you are having a lot of books, don’t just put them inside boxes to pile up dust. Place them wisely in places that are small spots of relaxation such as under coffee tables or above the fireplace. You may use a bookshelf, if you already have, to showcase your books beautifully.
You don’t need to worry if you lack many decorating items and want to stick to the no-money decorating idea. Open your refrigerator and take out the bright colored fruits like oranges, limes, pomegranates and place them inside big glass jars, if you have. Or just simple arrange them nicely in a bowl or basket and lure the senses of your guests.
ADD SOME INDOOR PLANTS.
Adding plants to your room are an amazing and eco-friendly way to decorate your beautiful home. They spruce up the look of the room instantly by their green leaves that are so refreshing. You may choose to use any flowering plants that require less water or better manage the water-system wisely if you love plants too much!
USE YOUR OLD GLASSWARES.
Do you have any broken glass or bowl that you have decided to throw away? Well, its time to change that decision and use it to decorate your home! Old glassware adds a royal touch to the room and are amazing decorating items when used creatively.
PLACE UNCONFORMABLE CHAIRS WISELY.
If you have any odd chairs that don’t fit perfectly with the dining table or study table, angularly place them when not in use. Throw a bright colored hand towel or a scarf to beautify this uncomfortable furniture.
PETAL BOWL ON THE TABLE TOP.
Having no ideas for what to place over the coffee table or a side table? Well, collect some flower petals (maybe of roses) from your garden and put them on a glass bowl of water. Place this nice petal bowl where ever you want to draw attention.
USE UTENSILS TO DECORATE YOUR KITCHEN.
Highlight your kitchen walls by hanging pans, pots, baking utensils in full. This gives a nice and Fuller look to the kitchen while making it easy for you to find pans for frying your eggs or veggies.
DECORATING THE BATHROOM.
If you have space in your bathroom that doesn’t get used you may choose it to show off your soaps, body washes, and other toiletries as a means to decorate your bathroom. Place soft colored towels nicely to give a subtler touch.
