Hosting a dinner party or having out of town guests stay over is a great excuse to spruce up your home with some new decorating ideas. Of course, there is nothing wrong with wanting to “freshen” things up just because. Decorating doesn’t automatically mean hiring an expensive professional to do the work for you. There are a lot of projects you can handle on your own with little effort or cost. Consider the following easy decorating ideas:
Repurpose What You Already Have
There is a lot you can do in your home that doesn’t involve buying something new. Start with the kitchen. Do you need all new cabinets and drawers or can they be repainted or refaced? Do you have hardwood floors under your carpeting? Maybe it is time to pull up the rugs and break out the buffer.
Painting walls is always a good way to perk up a room but you don’t have to paint all the walls. Pick one for an “accent” wall and paint that a different color to make the room “pop.”
Anchor The Room With Furniture
If you are set on replacing the sofa or bedroom set, then go for it. What you don’t need to do is replace everything around that new item. Let it become the anchor of the room that sets the tone for texture and color. All you have to do then is bring in some accent pieces that will enhance the central piece of furniture. Rugs, pillows and throws in appropriate color schemes are the perfect way to finish off a room.
You might also find that perfect piece of furniture on Craigslist or one of the other online classified ad sites. There is no reason you have to pay top dollar for a designer item when what you’re looking for can be found at a fraction of the cost.
