Six cost-effective ideas to dress up your new home

Your pockets are empty. You feel like you have spent the last dime in your bank.  It is probably that time in your life when you spent a bomb on buying this 3 BHK flat in a metro city in India and the dent that the home loan interest made on your finances! You cannot bear another hefty amount to bring in new accessories, change furniture or re-paint the entire house. So how does your home reflect your impeccable style without costing you a fortune?

Here are some easy and economic ways for a budget-friendly makeover for your new nest:

Organize your stuff and re-imagine parts of your space

Get rid of clutter and messy shelves! Only organizing home accessories could beautify your space. Maybe just shifting your furniture or a few decorative pieces in between rooms or corners can also give your home a new, fresh look. Make the sofa face the window instead of the television or add a corner lamp to reinvigorate the living space. It just needs a shift in perspective and does not involve spending a dime.

Style your walls

The most rudimentary change you can bring in your home is by experimenting new style trends on your walls instead of keeping them plain and dull. A textured paint color in a standout shade on one of the walls of your room can enliven the entire space. Enhance the look of this accentuated wall with beautiful paintings or interesting wall hangings to perk up your room.

Let candles and new table settings work their magic

Romance goes well with eating spaces. So dramatize your dining area by placing candles on stands or in the chandelier, adding a flower vase, changing the position of napkin holders, salt and pepper containers and using less electricity for this area – another effective way to save your hard-earned moolah while also playing around with home decoration.

Brighten those lonely corners

Greenery always works wonders, especially when it is a dreary and neglected corner of your room. A couple of plant pots in the hallway or a single leaf fig in a basket can add unimagined freshness to your room. Some in-built lighting or fancy but inexpensive up-lights can help brighten this space even more.

Work on the storage spaces

For things to be less cluttered, storage spaces are mandatory. If you do not have in-built cabinets in your kitchen or bath, you can always pick some colorful storage boxes of different shapes and sizes the next time you go shopping and keep your essentials in order.

Adding your own personal style to your living space does not need you to be a Picasso. Add a pinch of your imagination when you work on a certain home accessory like gluing hand-stitched accents onto lampshades, covering the back of your bookcase with a pretty wallpaper, fixing an elegant, bold mirror on a passageway or in between the shelves of a bookcase, replacing heavy curtains with soft, pastel-colored blinds and voila, you have a home with an exciting look.

So, the next time you plan to throw that glass jar or get rid of those boring chest drawers, think again! Take some keen interest in the details to help you pick the right kind of things you might need to beautify your home in a never-seen-before avatar. You never know your long-forgotten craft items can give you all the inspiration you need.

Happy renovation!
