When spring comes around most people feel the need to do some spring cleaning. Many people clean out their closets and donate accumulated clothes and home décor to charity each year. However, you should think twice before trading in some of your home decoration items. Instead of buy splurging on new home décor every year, why don’t you spice up what you have and give your home a brand new look? You can simply add minute details to the decorations you already have, in order to get a fresh new look this spring!
Before you decide to get rid of those boxes of clutter, trinkets and worn-down accessories, think about what you could actually do with these items in another context. You can decorate basic lamps, windows, throws, pillows, or unused china and vases with them. Even the tiniest details can turn this spring into a new beginning for your home decor with innovation and cheap materials such as mirrors, plastic flowers and decorative trim.
Start visualizing your ideal spring decorations in your head while you take note of the items that you currently have to work with. If you are in need of ideas, simply look through the pages of some home décor magazines. You can either copy the look of a designer pillow for the living room or turn a traditional lamp in the guest room into something more fashionable with the help of these magazines. By the end of it, you will realize how simply updating pieces you already own can give new life into your home this spring.
If your couches are flawless but the pillows on them are tattered, you can re-dress them by inserting the old pillows into no-sew pillow shams. Within a mere couple of hours and a wee bit of creativity, you can come up with a whole new designer look that is all your own.
You could also revamp the look of your room with a great rug. Survey the décor items you already have and find an area rug that ties them all together. If you don’t have time to paint the walls the color you want, a rug can be the next best thing to introduce the select color into the room. What’s more, it is much easier to change an area rug than the color on the walls. Invest in a quality area rug is easy to clean and made for lasting durability. Area rugs are a vital element in any home décor.
Your mission of creating an entirely new spring haven can continue by creating an illusion of a more spacious environment with the use of mirrors; these usually make spaces look bigger than they are. If you have a junk pile of china, you can use these pieces as wall mirror frames. If the mirrors are larger, use chargers. Just choose a circular mirror that can be placed within the plate’s center and put them together with perfect glue 1. Then, place a heavy object atop of it and allow it to dry for two hours.
You should also pay special attention to the lighting in your home. No matter how old your trusty lamp may be, it could be given the perfect makeover to freshen up your current home decorations. Try covering up the old lamp with one-of-a-kind decorations such as artificial greenery or rope. Also, create an outstanding and eye-catching lamp shade to complete the new transformation.
Let your imagination go wild and don’t let it stop. Keep moving from one space to the other and use your creativity to give new life to old household items. And remember: every little detail counts.
