We recently added on to our home, it’s almost time to start thinking about home decorating ideas, and I am on the lookout for inspiration to get my creativity going. Honestly, I don’t think there is a special rule book that one must follow when looking for diy decorating tips or ideas for rooms in your home. Plus, I am also looking for a lot of décor diy ideas so we can stay under out budget.
Rugs look great, and have a great way of adding warmth to any room. We have hardwood floors, but even when we had carpet floors adding the right rug helped pull a room together.
Why not have a little fun painting, and added bold clean stripes to one wall in your bedroom. It’s also okay to play with paint, when painting the color of your walls and trip set the mood for your room, so giving them a fresh coat of paint, or changing the colors can make all the difference in the world.
If you cannot afford new cabinets, give them a fresh coat of paint.
Do you have a certain room in your home you want to feel welcoming? Good lighting is an easy way to make any room feel welcoming to family and friends and even more comfortable for the family.
Something I learned long ago is when planning for storage, think big. Rather than making just enough room, plan ahead and make it bigger, because chances are your will need it later. It’s easier to have a little too much storage room, than not enough. Plus, it leaves you enough room to be organized.
Add color to a small space, such as an office where you will be spending a lot of time. We recently added an office for me, and painting the walls bright colors made a huge difference. It’s better for taking pictures, easier to spend time in, and sets a better tone.
When considering colors, be realistic. If you have children, you are not likely going to want light colored covers for the couches. Choose fabrics with your lifestyle in mind – can take spills, machine washable, etc.
Decals are an affordable way to get creative in any room. Whether it’s on your furniture, walls, or even on the tile in your kitchen it’s a great way to enhance an area.
Give your sofa a makeover by adding a premade slipcover, and pillows.
Do you have old stained glass bottles laying around? Use them to decorate a room in your home! They look great by a window, or in the kitchen.
A new shower curtain is an easy way and affordable way to change the look of any bathroom. If you are able, adding a few rugs helps too.
Adding a mirror to a room will make it look bigger due to the it reflecting the surroundings. Plus, they look great too.
Give your lampshades a new look by painting them.
Give you doors a new look, and make them part of the décor too.
Adding plants and small accessories to your windowsill can give a room just the added color it needs. You transform old objects by painting them to match the room’s décor.
