One of the best ways to renovate a home is to change the background of the rooms, i.e, the walls. They should not be ignored.

Creating a statement wall makes for a major change without spending much. To achieve this, you can either opt for a playful pattern or you can simply paint one wall in your favorite color. It makes your home design look more rich and dynamic.

If painting is not your thing or you are looking for a temporary solution, then you can consider beautiful removable wallpaper. There are tons of options available out there.

Furnish Smartly

Whether it is a sofa set for the living room, a dining table and chairs for the dining room or even a bed for the bedroom, make sure that the furniture fits well into the design. The size of the furniture is important to consider. Take proper measurements before making any purchases.

Secondly, put comfort ahead of other features. You may consider your style and needs when you are selecting adequate furniture. However, if it is not comfortable, you will not be using it and it will go to waste.

The upholstery, as well as the bedding, should be considered as per the occupants of the house. If you have children or pets in your home, consider the durability of the piece of furniture before buying.

If you are fond of DIY (Do-It-Yourself) ideas you can repair and repaint old furniture to make them look good as new. Or you can even completely repurpose old items into new décor items.

Cushion-Pillow Addi(C)tion

A sofa is incomplete without some cushions and so is a bed without pillows. Cushions are cozy and serve as a wonderful opportunity to add different textures, patterns, and colors into the living room. They add warmth as well as contrast into space.

You can easily switch and swap the cushion covers depending on your mood and the season and get a new look all over again.

Moreover, cushions are available in different shapes and sizes. Square, round, big or small, they are found in various shapes and make for one of the best accessories to give your living room a revamp.

To redefine a dull space, consider adding a few vibrant colour pillows. It will help bring more uplifting vibes into space. Organic hues and textures work well for Boho aesthetic effect.

Mirror Mirage

Add a great style and elegance by installing mirrors to any living space. A strategically placed mirror has the ability to make a room feel larger than its actual size. So, if you are dealing with small rooms, do not underestimate the power of mirrors.

Mirrors work well when placed over fireplaces, behind the sofa set, or even left standing against the wall.

Mirror adds interest to space and helps in breaking the rigidity of the space. This unexpected design element is practical as well as stylish as it reflects light and makes the space brighter, airy, and appear larger.

Add A Vase

If you have decided on going green, the inclusion of vases can be very useful in redesigning your space. You can use them either as a decor item or combine them with floral arrangements. They are a perfect accessory that you can include in your design to promote a good balance.

Hanging Interesting Lights

Lighting is the most crucial aspect of home designing. It can make or break even the best of interior designs. If you want to make the best impressions on your visitors, then revamp your interiors with the correct lighting.

Pendant lamps or lights remain the best choice when it comes to lighting in a modern home interior. An unusual pendant lighting design will call for attention and will pull visual focus upwards.

Lighting also helps in creating the mood of the room such as ambient lighting. Ideally, lighting should be implemented in layers. Avoid using single overhead lighting.

A Personal Touch

A home appears home-y and lived-in when it has something of yours included in the design. Do include something personal and meaningful in your family room.

It could be anything from a piece of art to a souvenir you hold dear. An item that tells a story that is yours and no one else’s is the ideal choice.

Get A Rug

Add a lovely touch to a room with a comfortable rug. It should be like a comfortable mat that is easy underfoot. This final touch makes for a cosy living interior.

Knowing your rug material is essential before making any purchase decision. Its sizing should also be taken into consideration. Consider going for a nicely textured and soft rug. You can also opt for a pattern or colour that is in line with the style of the room.

Rugs add warmth and definition to any given space. When you are redefining your interior, there is no better option than a new area rug.

The colors and patterns you choose in a rug are important, but where you place the rug makes a huge impact as well.
