We’ve all heard that famous saying ‘Charity begins at home’. The home is the very first social setting that we humans are exposed to in our lives. So, it’s a no brainer why so many of us share a very intimate connection with our living spaces, always fussing about the maintenance and decoration of them. But oftentimes, redecorating can be quite the chore and expensive to pull off. In this article lies the solutions to our age-old problem. Without further ado, here are 10 easy hacks to make over any room in a day!
- Rearrange Everything:
This is the quickest way to breathe new life to an insipid room. Move around the furniture, TV, night lights, everything that can be shifted, just don’t break your back while doing it.
- Change the color of your bulbs:
Sometimes all our rooms need is a different color and what easier way to do that than changing the bulbs. Go crazy with it; Blue, yellow, green, whichever you desire.
- Add some ambience:
Adding some new flowers, vases, scented candles all improve the ambience of the room. Feng Shui the whole place!
- Change the tablecloth:
Over time, tablecloths grow drab and dull-colored. Introduce new brightly colored tablecloths to make a statement.
- Add Rugs and Carpets:
Throwing new classy carpets and rugs on the floors will prove to be very effective in reinvigorating them.
- Mix up the chairs:
Throw out some of your formal chairs and match them with a couple simpler ones to bring about a more casual setting and feel to the dining room.
- Add some art:
You can never go wrong with art. Be it on the bookshelves or on the hallway walls, few things add beauty to a room quite like a good painting. Give your guests something to gawk at.
- Go White, Go Bright:
Throw in lots of white paint on some of your furniture and/or walls to create a bright, more airy setting in the room. This tip works best for rooms with ample to high amounts of sunlight i.e. A living room. Top it off with some white cutlery, fine china or artifacts to add to the brightness.
- Add pictures to the walls:
Remember that summer you spent with your family in Cabo, Mexico? Or the spring break your boyfriend took you to your first Disneyland? All the cute pictures and selfies you took on all those wonderful adventures would look awesome on the walls of your room. You don’t even have to frame them either, just make a collage with a lot of them into a fun shape like a heart.
- String lights aren’t only for Santa:
You don’t have to wait till its December to bring out the string lights. In fact, they’d look absolutely stunning in your bedroom or hung over your backyard. Just don’t get the ones that play Christmas music.
