Time and energy should never be an issue when it comes to giving your home a new look. All you need is to think of small and doable projects that can provide your house that much needed oomph. Small changes can create a big impact in your homes. These can be simple replacement of fabrics or taking out and displaying seasonal collections. These are interesting ways to elevate your common space to highly creative.
One thing you can do is change your art frames to nature-themed or seasonal illustrations. For example, you can put up a nice painting of leaves during fall or a blown up photo of flowers when it is spring.
When it comes to furniture displays, you can use seasonal elements as displays. These includes acorns, birds’ nest and seashells. Find a way to display them in groups for aesthetic purposes.
Rugs can be helpful in sprucing up a room. Change your area rugs according to season. Use rugs made of jute during summer. If you do not have electric in floor heating, you can opt for rugs with shaggier materials in cooler months.
Do not discount the beauty that natural plants can contribute to liven up a room. There are lots of plants to choose from but make sure that they can thrive indoors. If natural light abound in your home, you can try to grow flowering plants inside. Choose flowers with bright colors and do not forget to plant them in colorful and unique pots for great design. For the kitchen, you can grow your very own herbs to not only make your meals taste great but also to spice up this room.
If you are entertaining, you can forget about matching sets of glassware. Instead, go for quirky or vintage mix and match glassware which can make a unique statement.
There are countless and inexpensive ways to spruce up your home without breaking a sweat or your budget. All you need to do is come up with small yet ingenious ideas to infuse design and color to your homes.
