Most folks will consider a fresh coat of paint and a housewarming party enough to make a house a home. But are you looking for something a little more unique and that too with a little less effort? Coming up with something that could be essentially your own mark without jumping on any bandwagon is now possible when it’s all about revamping your house.

The best thing about interior design is that there are a lot of unique ideas that are also easy to implement. You can try out one of the following ideas and enjoy the difference!

Adding A Splash Of Light Colors

Instead of just freshening up the existing paint job, take the plunge and go with the softer, warmer, and lighter colors for your rooms. If you don’t want to splurge on a completely new paint job, change up one wall in certain strategic rooms. If the colors are already light on every wall, consider having one wall in a jewel-toned or rich, deep hue. You can then hang the best pairings and decorations on this special addition to make the most of their beauty.

Working on the Living Room

Your living room needs special attention and care in order to give it a light, airy, yet homey feeling. Again, we suggest you slip the dark colors here and focus on opening up space as much as possible. The minute you enter your home, you should feel welcomed in a way that rejuvenates you. Clear out most of the knickknacks and make sure there’s enough room to move about.

Using Mirrors

Mirrors can help to enhance the space you have by making it appear larger, less cramped, and more full of light. They’ll reflect whatever natural or artificial light you already have, especially if you placed them directly opposite a light source. Some people may prefer to have large expanses of mirrors, but decorative frames will also fill up space if you don’t have an art piece.

Mixing Up

Make use of your family heirlooms, antique treasures, and other interesting items by placing them near modern furniture. You’ll be amazed at how lovely your grandmother’s tea set will look on an otherwise boring side table!

If you can afford to get a new addition, Instapainting is a good option. This service allows you to get in touch with artists from all over the world. You can commission a unique work that reflects your personality, thus making the room, house, or apartment reflect it as well. Other than this, go with what feels good; mixing up textures and patterns is a wise idea to find your own personal style.

Playing With The Storage Options

We all need to have a lot of stuff around for our everyday needs, but the storage could be an issue. Having your things strewn all over the tables and counters is not exactly making you comfortable in your own home. So make your surroundings more homelike by investing in some classy storage such as wicker baskets, DIY shelves, or bright plastic containers for toys, fruits, veggies, and books.

Using the Extras      

Free up storage space and add a unique touch to your place by using those trunks as furniture. Your child’s art could get a frame instead of hanging on the fridge if it’s especially good. Pull out those old trays, hang those adorable plates that you don’t eat out of, or use that pretty single teacup as a catch-all in the hallway for your keys. You don’t always have to buy something in order to make your living experience better.

Hanging the Pots

Closed storage might be best in the bedroom and living rooms, but you’re probably using your pots and pans every single day. A kitchen in use is a warm and inviting space, so make it better for working in by adding a place to hang your pots. You can install some hooks by the wall or have one of those overhead holders hanging from the ceiling. You’d be surprised by how much easier your cooking process becomes after this change!

Growing Your Greenery

Plants are always an excellent addition to any space. They’ll produce some healthy air, balance indoor humidity, and will also add some texture to your home. You can also go for fake plants if the real ones are too much of a responsibility.

Sprucing Up

While neutral furniture is classy, a bright spot of color instantly energizes the room and the whole house by default. Add the color in some quirky spots, such as the inside of a bookcase, closet, fireplace, or even the ceiling. If paint or wallpaper is too much hassle, contact paper will work fine for smaller areas.

Making Areas

Having several pieces of furniture on one floor can result in a cluttered look. Use strategic settings, area rugs, and contrasting colors to make small areas in one room, such as a tiny coffee area setting in the main living room with two chairs and a small table. This will help to soften up austere floorings and evoke a comforting feeling.
