No matter if you’re a beginner or an expert, decorating your home is fun and rewarding. There are many ways to spruce up your living space and make it more appealing to yourself and your family. The following 12 DIY tips can help you improve your home decor:
1. Keep your space clean.
Cleanliness is next to godliness, right? Well, the same can be said for your home decor. When you’re done with a project, make sure to tidy up the area so that you can enjoy it more. Keep your floor clean by sweeping and mopping it regularly. Dusting can be done in a single sweep of a dust pan or vacuum cleaner, but remember not to use too much dusting powder since this will leave a streaky look on your floor. If you need to remove stains from the carpet or upholstery, use a wet cloth to gently remove them with water before vacuuming them away completely.
2. Remove clutter from the house.
If there’s clutter everywhere in your house, it’ll make it difficult for you to decorate and maintain it properly without being distracted by other things around you. To prevent this from happening, organize your stuff so that there are no loose items lying around your house which can cause clutter and messes on their own accord later on down the road when you least expect it (like under the bed). You can also keep some boxes under each bed so that you can easily store any small items that may have been forgotten about while at home during the day (like hair clips or jewelry). In order to keep things organized in your living space, try using baskets or shelves instead of drawers as these are easier for people to find things in.
3. Install a mirror on your wall.
Mirrors are great for making your room look bigger and also for enhancing the look of your furniture and other decor items in it. In addition to these benefits, mirrors also make it easy for you to see what you’re doing while working on your projects, especially if you’re working on a DIY project like painting or wallpapering a room that has small areas where you need to be able to see exactly what you’re doing. To prevent reflections from being distracting, use a mirror with frosted glass so that people won’t be able to see through it when they enter the room.
4. Put up some artwork.
When it comes to decorating, there are many ways of adding artistic flair and personality to any space of yours: You can hang pictures or posters on the walls, or you can even choose to get some unique artwork printed at home that will make your space feel more personal and unique than ever before (this is especially true if you get something customized). However, do note that hanging artworks directly on walls may not be advisable if they are too big (like a painting), as this may cause damage to them later down the road when the wall they are hanging on is hit by another object such as a doorframe or piece of furniture in case of an earthquake or hurricane strikes your area later on down the road; therefore, hanging art works on a wall that is already mounted on the ceiling may be a better option for you.
5. Use candles to add a subtle touch of light and color.
Whether you’re decorating for your living room or bedroom, candles are great ways of adding both light and color to your space without being too loud or overwhelming. If you’re using candles for the first time, start off with one candle at a time until you get used to how they look and feel in your home. You can also add some of these candles to your home décor during the holidays like Christmas and Thanksgiving (or any other holiday that you may have in your area) by using them in place of traditional Christmas lights or other decorative items such as wreaths, garlands, and bows which are usually seen during this time of year.
6. Paint or change the color of your walls.
If there are certain areas in your house that still look outdated and dull despite all the work that you have done in it, then why not change them up by painting them? Painting walls is easy enough for anyone to do so they don’t need much expertise to do it (unless they’re doing it themselves). Whether you want to paint just one wall or an entire room, remember to use bright colors as these will make the room seem more spacious than ever before since bright colors tend to make rooms look larger than rooms with darker shades on their walls.
7. Add a ceiling fan to your space.
This may be a simple tip, but it’s one that many people don’t think about when they’re decorating their homes: If you have a room that gets too hot or cold during certain seasons of the year, then it would be wise for you to add a ceiling fan in your room so that you can enjoy the benefits of having this in place. This is especially true if you live in an area where temperatures are particularly high or low during certain months of the year (like when it gets extremely cold or extremely hot outside), as this will help keep you comfortable and will prevent your room from getting too hot or cold as well. In addition, if you have kids who tend to get easily irritated when they’re exposed to heat or coldness, then ceiling fans are great ways of keeping them from being too uncomfortable while they play around and do their activities in your room (especially since they tend to get easily overheated and overstimulated).
8. Create a focal point with plants and flowers.
If there are certain areas in your home that need some extra attention (like if they look dull), then why not add some plants or flowers into your space? This will help make these areas seem more alive and energetic by creating focal points which can be used by people walking into the rooms since they will immediately know what’s important about this area of your home such as whether or not it is an area where you entertain guests or simply relax after a long day at work. Whether you want to add a small amount of greenery or go all out with large-scale arrangements, just remember to make sure that your plants are healthy and will not be a problem for you to look after.
9. Add some extra storage to your space.
If there are certain areas in your house that still look outdated or don’t have enough storage space, then why not add some extra storage to these spaces? Whether you want to use old furniture or new furniture, this can be done with the help of adding shelves and cabinets into these areas so that people can store their belongings in a more organized way. If you’re looking for extra storage space for things like books, clothes, and other items, then shelves can be a great way of keeping them organized so they don’t end up being scattered all over the place in various areas of your home (especially if they are used by multiple people). It’s also helpful if you have an area in your home that is always occupied by someone (like a dining room) so that it doesn’t look too empty since it will make the area seem more spacious when guests come over.
10. Add some light fixtures into your room.
If there are certain areas in your house where the lighting isn’t optimal or there is too much darkness around certain parts of these areas, then why not add some light fixtures into these spaces? This will help brighten up the entire area since they tend to draw attention to any part of a room which is lit up as well as making it seem more modern and updated since they’re great for creating focal points. If you’re looking for some light fixtures that are practical and will last you a long time, then LED light fixtures are the best option since they tend to be more energy efficient than traditional light bulbs (which can quickly become outdated and expensive) and they also tend to last longer than regular light bulbs.
