T he right home decor is an absolute delight as it elevates the aesthetics and feel of your home. But sometimes the price tag can pose an insurmountable challenge. Who would have thought the home decor ideas you excitedly pinned on your board would be so pocket sapping? Notwithstanding, the right decor turns a house into a home so giving up isn’t so much of an option.
Thankfully, there are DIY home decoration ideas that could come in handy and are more pocket-friendly. Although they require a good dose of creativity and concentration, the results are well worth it. Seeing you’ll be spending a lot of time in this space, you should make it more aesthetically pleasing to suit your personality and taste without burning through funds for it. As a result, we have curated this quick decor guide to revamping your home.
These easy home decor ideas will upgrade your space in 2022…
#1. Green is all the Rave
Plants add an aesthetically pleasing vibe to your space that’s impossible to resist. Haven’t you walked into a planted space and just didn’t want to leave? The space downright made you feel alive. That’s the power of plants. In addition, they give a zen aura that helps you stay tranquil– no doubt needed after a busy day. While artificial plants can have the same effect, live plants are our top picks. Plus, who doesn’t want a green space?
#2. Lay down a rug
Not only do rugs warm up your room, but they also add a decorative touch. What’s more, regardless of your personal taste, you’ll certainly find a rug to match. That is to say, whether you’re drawn to boho, rustic, minimalism, or traditional, there’s a plethora of options to choose from. The rug you choose can instantly elevate the aesthetic of your room. Choose wisely.
#3. Utilize empty glass jars
Personally, I fell in love with this trend and jumped right on it. Once a bottle of wine or a jam jar is exhausted, the next phase of purposeful living kicks in immediately. Glass jars are great for flower vases, aroma diffusers, fruits, and even jewelry holders. So, why not put your empty jars to good use.
Note: You might want to screw yours to walls and/or place them on high platforms if you have toddlers (yes, I learned the hard way, thankfully no casualties).
#4. Antique 2.0
Do you have antique furniture lying around with little or no use, but you’re unwilling to give it up because it belonged to granny? Well, I’ve got great news for you: don’t discard them just yet. That supposedly ugly, old furniture can be brought back to life with some crafty refurbishing. Although this will take some effort, in the end, it will be well worth it. By using the right color(s) and/or fabric(s), these old kickers easily blend right into your space. We know, it’s genius!
#5. Paint the walls neutral
Painting your walls by yourself might sound overwhelming but it’s not as herculean as it appears, especially when it’s a simple neutral color. Neutral shades are IN right now, particularly all-white and pastel walls. These will transform your home from basic to Uber stylish.
#6. Art, art, some more art
Hang some art on the walls or pretty up some old surfaces with vinyl wallpapers. Any and everything can be transformed into art provided you are willing to let your creativity roam free.
Equally artistic is hiding cracked walls and swapping ugly kitchen cabinets for hanging holders like pegboards, wall shelves, and wall baskets. These will hold a lot of household items and create more space. Such a great reason to declutter.
#7. Upgrade your lighting
Lighting is everything and more. The right lighting has the ability to elevate your living space at the snap of a finger. Invest in a mix of bright white and colored light bulbs. Also, side lamps could be revamped with the right stickers and positioning. Let your inner creativity burst out, there’s no limit. It’s your space, your home, own it.
