If you feel like your decor could do with some TLC, you’ve come to the right place. Boring decor can be uninspiring and leave us feeling restless when we’re at home. When you arrive home you want to feel comfortable, relaxed, and in your own personal haven. If you think your decor is boring, here we have 10 ways you can begin to transform it. Take a look and see what you can do to give your decor a little bit more glamor:
- Add More Texture
Start by adding more texture. You can do this in so many ways, so just have fun with it. Add rugs, cushions, and throws. Find unusual textures, textiles, and materials when out shopping for accessories. The more textured your home is, the more interesting it tends to look. If you’ve always felt your home was lacking in something, you might find that goes away once you add more texture.
- Create an Indoor Jungle
Creating an indoor jungle that’s going to last means choosing plants you know you can take care of. It’s no good spending a ton of money on plants only to have them die when you realize you have no idea how to take care of them, over or under water them, and don’t give them the amount of sunlight they need. Each plant is different, and if you’re a beginner you’ll need to start off with something easy, like a snake plant. As you get more confident you can gradually add more plants, however, you should take your time.
- Find Ways To Enhance What You’ve Already Got
You don’t need to completely overhaul your place – how about enhancing what you’ve already got? You could look into a cabinet refinishing company to enhance your current cabinets, rather than replace them. It can make a huge difference to the look of your home and you don’t need to spend time and money breaking everything apart and installing new pieces.
- Show Off Your Favorite Artwork
Showing off your favorite artwork is so important if you want to add a bit of glamor and something special to your home. It doesn’t need to be artwork by a famous artist. It can be artwork you found online, artwork by a local artist, or even something you’re proud of that you did yourself. You could create an eclectic wall full of artwork if you really want to add some personality to your home!
- Change Out Your Hardware
Hardware is a really easy fix and you can change most of it out yourself. It can add a brand new feel to your home, especially if you choose metallic, fancy looking accents.
- Find Ways To Layer Things
Layering things, like cushions, rugs, and other decor elements can seriously make your home look professionally put together. It can be difficult to do, but with a little practice you will get the hang of it.
- Create An Accent Wall
An accent wall isn’t something you want in every room. Choose one room with a good wall – it should be free from windows, with no distractions. You can then work on adding your accents. Photographs, artwork, and even things like souvenirs and musical instruments can be added to it to create a unique look that helps to show off your personality.
Go through your belongings and see if you can give anything you own a new lease of life by upcycling it. You could reupholster an old chair, paint a cabinet, or try something else to bring something you already own back to life.
- Go Thrifting
You never know what you might find when thrifting, and it can be a really exciting hobby that lands you with some cool and unique elements in the home. If you want something different to everybody else, and also want to help the environment, then thrifting is the way to go.
- Switch Up Your Layout
Switching up your lay out is easy and can help to change the look of your decor in a flash. Consider changing where you have your sofas, for example, to create a more social space. You can use apps online to see what this will look like before you do it, so you don’t have to put the effort in until you’re sure.
Transforming boring decor doesn’t have to be expensive or too strenuous – try the advice here and you’ll have a beautiful new look in your home in no time. Thanks for reading!
