New Year is just around the corner, which means it’s time to create a delightful ambiance at home. What if we tell you that you can create a romantic, joyful, and magical environment at your home just by doing it yourself? We will share everything you can do to decorate your home, from candlesticks and festive garlands to original decorations and a cozy fireplace. Let’s look at some DIY home decorating techniques that instantly gives your home a brand-new look.
REARRANGE FURNITURE AND DECORATIONS
You can often drastically change the look of a room just by rearranging the furniture. For example, if the first thing you see when you walk into your living room is the sofa’s back, that chunky piece of furniture blocks traffic. Just moving the couch to the opposite wall can create a new focal point, improve circulation, and make the room more welcoming, all at the same time. And above all, it costs absolutely nothing.
Suppose you can’t find an excellent way to comfortably arrange the room’s furniture and notice some extra furniture or other decoration items in your living room. In that case, you need to send these items to your storeroom. If you don’t have space available in your storeroom, consider renting storage units instead of disposing of your expensive decorations or furniture.
MIRRORS TO CREATE A SPACE ILLUSION
Mirrors can visually enlarge the space. You can use mirrors or products with reflective elements. Install old frames on the wall of the house and use mirrors instead of glass. All this can create the illusion of expanded space. You can also place many objects with a mirror surface of different sizes or shapes on the lawn near the house.
A cozy fireplace is one of the main attributes of traditional decor. You can even make it yourself! All you need is a large rectangular box. Glue it to the wall and paint it white. Now draw brickwork on the box and decorate the resulting fireplace. It is an illusion, but when it adds to your decoration, it is worth it.
Bright garlands are sure to get you in the mood. You can hang them everywhere. Try decorating the railing of the stairs, ceiling, walls, cabinets, doorways, and even trees. You can make garlands yourself with corrugated paper or foil.
Even if you are not familiar with the principles of using solar energy, courtyard lighting helps you decorate your exterior with environmental-friendly lighting. First, you need to replace all the light bulbs with solar lights. To protect against moisture, you need to place them in shades or a particular case if you want to hang them on a tree or a house wall. If you are using wooden frames, you need to make sure that they are safe.
USING PLANTS AND STONES
Growing brightly colored plants and flowers remains the most successful yard and garden decorating method, but it can be time-consuming. To plant small seeds, you should use toilet paper. If you had to cut down a tree, you could make an original decoration for the trunk’s yard. For example, you can make a table or flowerpot for summer flowers by decorating it with moss.
Even if you are not a gardener, you can install several flowerpots of different sizes in your yard. To make them glow in the dark, you need to paint them with special paint. You can also use some indoor plants to give a green and fresh look to your interior.
Today, there’s hardly any landscape design that looks complete without massive stones of various sizes. However, one thing people miss is that their smooth surface is ideal for painting. Painting it will decorate the garden with interesting and unusual objects, colors, and shades. You can use one color or a combination of ornaments.
If you want to make your home look gorgeous without spending a fortune, the first thing to do is forget about everything you’ve seen on TV and in magazines. When TV decorators recreate a space, they make it quite expensive, hire contractors, and invest in high-end reforms. You can work around with similar remakes using these techniques. Don’t change everything and discover ways to give a new look to the old items. Use what you already have or get these things dirt cheap from the market.
