Home interiors – my new passion! As soon as I have decorated one room I’m already looking at the next room I can spruce up. I have endless ideas in my head but not enough time to dedicate days on end putting them into action. So I’ve come up with some quick and easy ways to transform your home, without breaking the bank.
Wall stickers and decals are one of my go to items when looking to change a room, and they involve minimum effort. With thousands of designs to pick from you can literally transform any room in the house with wall stickers. If you live in rented property then you can customise your walls without risking the wrath of your landlord – wall stickers are a great way to add your own style to your home. And best of all, they’re completely removable, so they won’t cause hassle when you move out.
Add wallpaper to plywood panels and lean them against your walls, creating wallpaper panels. Not only is it a cheap way of adding colour and pattern to a room, but you can also change your colour scheme as often as you want, or even use it to create zones within a bedroom for rest and study.
One of my favourite things to do recently is up-cycle old furniture. There are so many ways you can lovingly transform that old bedside cabinet, from re-varnishing, or using chalk paint to give it a new shabby chic look. You can even use stencils to add a decorative pattern.
A good bedlinen set can lift even the simplest of rooms and add a touch of luxury to your surroundings. We own numerous different bed sets, a few for every season, and I love how they instantly change the look of our bedroom.
Got lots of photos you want to have out on show? Why not display them all on a framed feature wall? You don’t need to splash out loads of money for frames either, instead get that unique look by rummaging charity shops and boot sales for old, mismatched frames, then spray them the same colour before putting them on the wall.
Your home should feel just like that – home! It can sometimes take a bit of imagination to see past the old and visualise the new, but with a bit of creativity and elbow grease just about every home can be given a new lease of life.
