Make your home a piece of art with these decorative tips

Our house is our canvas, a piece of art. Designing involves a lot of thought, energy, and investment. And while some design elements are for the long haul — like wall paint, decorative laminate, and fixtures, there are some that can be easily changed from time to time. And it’s these little things that can make a big difference.
Here are a few economical decor ideas to revamp your interiors:

Use House Plants

Besides generating oxygen and removing toxins from the air, indoor plants bring an aura of positivity in your humble abode. Additionally, indoor plant decoration makes your living space more comfortable, breathable, and luxurious. If you wish to make the ambiance more calming, you can keep a Buddha statue around those plants and make your own spiritual corner.

Hang Plates

Different coloured plates make for a fresh wall arrangement. Play with varied hues (within a family), sizes, and textures. Using wire plate hangers, put the most dramatic plate at the centre and surround it with other plates as per the design you have in mind. If possible, get in touch with laminated door manufacturers who can guide you to put up a nice décor at your house.

Cluster Candles

Candles look best when grouped together, particularly on a spacious surface like a coffee table. Group four or five container candles of different heights — preferably in the same colour. Remember to make sure your container is leak, fire, and crack resistant. Alternatively, you can opt for candle holders.

Go Natural

Use shells and another beach bounty to warm-up space and create a rustic, relaxed display. To go all out with the aquatic theme, glue scallop shells, sea stars, sea urchins onto a fireplace or use medium-sized shells to hold jewelry, tea lights, or keys.

Hang a Gallery of Photos

Dig your albums for your best shots (pick a theme — weddings, birthday parties, vacations) and put them in identical frames. Hang them in a tight grid or in a long line — you can’t go wrong if you stick to a geometric arrangement. Complementing wall tiles will increase the overall impact.

Amplify Your Space

An easy and pocket-friendly way to amplify the sense of space in a small room is to use a large, full-length mirror. It’s a classic interior decorator trick to create instant―if not real―square footage.

Pillow Count

Pillows are cozy and cute, but they shouldn’t take up more than half of the bed. Two sets of appropriately sized bed pillows and a neck roll are all you need.
