Let’s go over so top tips to really liven up the rooms in your home.
Wallpaper Has Really Made a Comeback
For decades wallpaper had disappeared into the interior designing wilderness after a massive surge in popularity that lasted until the 1980s. The good news is, it’s now chic and modern to decorate with wallpaper, and in today’s world, you really have some incredible designs, colours and patterns to choose from.
In fact, some wallpapers, when put together, create a complete picture, such as a giant photograph or print of a tropical beach scene, cityscape, mountain lake and so on. You can really find just about anything you desire.
Apart form pictures, there are loads of patterns and different textures of wallpaper. It’ll be impossible not to discover rolls and rolls of wallpaper that you’ll love. It’s also very easy for the DIY handyperson to put up wallpaper and it can actually be quite fun.
How About Some Aluminium Venetian Blinds for the Windows?
Windows not only let in natural daylight and give you a view of the world outside, windows also draw the eye and can become a real showpiece in any room in the house. It’s well worth putting some time and budget into dressing up your windows, and one of the coolest and most modern ways to do just that is with aluminium venetian blinds.
Aluminium is long lasting, hard wearing and looks very stylish. Aluminium Venetian blinds also come in a variety of colours, and you can have them made to order so they fit your windows to perfection.
Apart from looking fantastic, let’s very quickly list some advantages of Venetian blinds:
- You can adjust the angle of the slats to let in light but maintain your privacy
- Angling the slats can also allow you to control the direction of the breeze
- Open the blinds right up to let in natural light
- Close them up to darken the room, which makes aluminium Venetian blinds perfect for cinema rooms and bedrooms
- They are easy to clean and maintain
Definitely Place a Rug On the Floor
If you have timber or tiled floors, then you’ll definitely want to include a rug in any room other than kitchens, bathrooms and laundries. Otherwise, the room just won’t feel that cosy, and you’ll find that sounds can be very harsh. A rug also breaks up the monotony of the floor space.
Even if you have carpet in your living room, placing a rug beneath the coffee table or between the lounges and chairs just really adds some pizzazz to the space. The rug you choose can simply be one solid colour, or you could go for a patterned rug with bold colours and textures to be a standout feature in the room.
Bare Walls Are Really Boring
Having some walls bare is okay, as it really can create a sense of simplicity and space. However, if all the walls in a room are bare, it equates to a room lacking in personality.
There are so many ways you can dress up the walls in your living room, bedroom, kitchen, dining room. Any room in the house will benefit from some form of wall decoration.
We’ll list a few ideas for quick and easy reference:
- A wall clock
- Photographs (yours or professional prints)
- Shelving with ornaments or books
- Wall-mounted water feature
- Wall-mounted lighting
- And more…
Have Your Furniture Professionally Cleaned
Now this might sound like a weird suggestion when it comes to interior designing, but furniture plays a huge role in the look of any room. Unless you want to go out and purchase a bunch of brand new furniture, the cheapest and easiest way to bring old furniture to life – particularly furniture made predominantly with material – is to have it professionally cleaned.
You’ll be amazed just how clean and fresh old furniture can become once it has been cleaned by an expert. It’ll really breathe new life into living rooms especially.
