If you’ve been wanting to give your home a decorative overhaul but you don’t know where to begin, you might be wondering just what you can swap out to start giving it a new look. There are a whole host of ways you can redecorate – from redoing floors, tiles, painting and more – all the way up to changing out things like textiles, refitting light fixtures or buying new decor. Here are a couple of great, easy ways you can do up a house without needing to break the bank. For ease of decor info, we’ve even broken it up into style for you!
If you’re into the executive kind of look and you want to bring more of this into your space, consider adding things like black framed, classic looking art prints of things like Paris or London skylines and the like. Consider swapping out your sofas for more square, minimalist styles in monochromatic colours like greys, whites, black and more. Glass side and coffee tables always bring a bit of executive style into the room as well. If you’re wanting to introduce a carpet or rug of some kind, consider a faux sheepskin rug – they always look extra classy against an executive backdrop.
Cosy Home Look
Cosy home looks are typically pretty easy to pull off and don’t require much effort unless you really want to go all out. Adding things like wood side tables, coffee tables and TV stands is a great place to start. Likewise, consider adding textiles such as cushions or throw blankets in warm, cosy shades like gold, reds, oranges and more. Homes typically look ‘lived in’, so the more lived in you make your space look, the more cosy and home-y it will feel! Add photos of family and friends around the walls, coffee table books, and thick linen curtains.
The ‘Bohemian’ look is all the rage with many people today and for good reason. This cosy home-come-new age hippie look is a warm, snuggly and inspiring way to decorate a space. Think mandala art on the walls, tapestries featuring Hindu gods and goddesses such as Ganesh, Himalayan salt lamps, crystals in window sills, multi-coloured throw pillows, faux sheepskin rugs, dreamcatchers, handmade decor like curtains and lampshades and more. There is literally no wrong way to do a bohemian look and with it being a popular option these days, even just for small spaces like bedrooms to create a real womb-like, chilled atmosphere, you can find tons of ideas for inspiration on the likes of Pintrest. Salt lamps in particular are a great addition, especially considering the numerous health benefits they provide, creating a win-win situation to bettering your space as well as yourself!
So there you have a couple of great ideas on ways to improve your space if you’re looking to redecorate without needing to paint or change anything too heavy duty like your flooring or windows. Just adding a bit of colour or monochrome textiling can go a long way to creating the ultimate in beautiful spaces that you can enjoy for years to come.
