Dramatize your home with a light dimmer
Lighting is every home’s best friend. No matter how big or small your house is, light fixtures, specifically dimmers, are easy and can be an affordable option if you aim to promote a relaxing atmosphere.
After a long and tiring day at work, it’s nice to come home to a calm ambiance at home. Light dimmers can serve you that ambiance and fascinatingly turn your home into a peaceful sanctuary with just a shift of the light. This feature can easily transform and create the home atmosphere you prefer.
Display your artwork
Whatever it is and whoever it’s from—could be a gift or your own creation—hang them up on the walls or take them out on display to give your space a personality. It would be much better if the art of craft your have are of sentimental value to reflect your own character and serve its own purpose.
In addition, if you think your home feels empty, hanging up a gallery of photos or artworks, and other display features is a sure-fire way to lift up your home’s spirit and make it appear lived in and full of character. These are also a great sight for welcoming visitors.
Splash some color
By splash of color, we don’t mean painting your walls red or pink. Bold colors can be added subtly or deliberately, depending on your personal preference. Don’t add a pop of color willy-nilly that doesn’t suit well with the layout and style of your house otherwise, it would look unpleasant rather than bold.
Adding a pop of color, especially if your home is painted neutral from walls to furniture, helps in directing the visitor’s eyes to the object. Bold hues and neutral backgrounds compliment one another and blends seamlessly, it’s a no-sweat way to make your living space or any room appear well made-up.
Place a statement piece
Statement displays are placed to draw people’s eyes onto the object and the layout of the room. As mentioned earlier, it could be an artwork, a gallery of photos, a bold chair, an antique coffee table, sculpture, and other works.
Statement or centerpieces shouldn’t have to be brand new or must cost you a fortune. It could be anything from a recycled trash art piece, your child’s quirky school project or your DIY art piece. The only thing you must keep in mind is to avert from over decorating.
An old yet timely piece
Antique or vintage items are easy to find and could cost little or next to nothing. It’s a no-fuss, easy home interior trick that can transform your home and give it that ‘oomph’. An old yet classy piece makes a good centerpiece in this modern time, most especially if the house is modernly styled and decorated. There’s something about old pieces that make you feel nostalgic. It’s why they would never go out of trend.
This list only consists of the seven essential things your home probably needs, however, there are cases that your home might need more than that. Have you got anything else to add and suggest? Don’t think twice to share it with us. Comment below!
