All you need to make your living space a happy place is a little bit of time. Simple additions such as green plants or minor changes like modernizing drawer pulls are easy ways to jazz up a room. These changes won’t break the bank either. We have 11 home decorating tips just for you.

Something as simple as lighting in a room can change the whole vibe. A dark room can be depressing. Layer lighting using overhead lights, table lamps, floor lamps, LED candles, or string lights. 

2. Update Cabinet Hardware

Changing the hardware on your kitchen cabinets can transform your cooking space. Wooden handles are affordable and suitable replacements and lend an antique feel to a remodeled kitchen. You may paint them the same color as your cabinets to create a more uniform appearance.

You can also replace the pulls in your bathroom or any other room with elegant and cost-effective alternatives to give the space a contemporary appearance. Also, think about your furniture pulls and knobs! Change those up too.

3. Add Adhesive Removable Wall Pops

Wall pops and adhesive wallpaper are easy and inexpensive way to spruce up a single wall or area. Peeling off old wall decals and replacing them with new ones is a simple process if the old ones become outdated. They make a room look more beautiful, put a positive spin on the atmosphere, and elevate glitz and glamor in your private sphere.

4. Upgrade Window Treatments

Changing your window coverings can be a great way to inject much-needed color, pattern, and texture into your home. The fabric used in window treatments frequently contributes to its elegance.

Nevertheless, the details that aren’t immediately noticeable, including trim, hardware, and hemstitching, often make a difference. If you pay attention to these details, you can use affordable curtains to achieve the desired appearance.

5. Replace Old Light Fixtures With Ceiling Fans

Consider creating a gallery wall to display personal items or smaller works of art. Several options exist for creating a gallery wall. Some people use a gallery wall to tell a tale about themselves and their hobbies and experiences.

8. Add Mirrors

Mirrors give your home an instant boost of style and interest, let in more natural light, and gives the illusion of more space. Also, they can be used in any room of the house. For example, a mirror at the end of a narrow area makes a great focal point.

You might want to hang a big mirror over the fireplace if your living room is small. To get the most out of the light, put mirrors in places where natural light comes in. This will reflect the light into less bright areas, making the whole room feel brighter.

9. Create Storage Solutions

Add functional and inexpensive storage options to each room to clean up your clutter. Consider wall-mounted box shelves, a vertical shelving unit for storing books or decorative goods, or a plug hub for tidiness in managing electrical cables. 

10. Stock Up On Houseplants

Houseplants add color, texture, and depth to any room, making it more inviting. They also create a warm and inviting atmosphere that can be stress-reducing. Plants are natural air purifiers that will improve the air quality in your home.
