When you’re redecorating a room that’s in dire need of a new look, you don’t need to splurge on all-new furniture — a few home accessories can instantly liven it up. Despite often being small, home decorations can pack a mighty punch and quickly change a “blah” room into a space worthy of a magazine cover. There are a wide variety of home decor products to choose from, so use these helpful tips to incorporate them into your space.
Have fun with wall decor.
If your floor space is limited, it’s important to make the most of your walls by using every inch for home decor. If your walls are looking a little barren, spice them up with colorful artwork. Your own photo collage can add a personal touch to any room, while mirrors can make a small space seem larger thanks to their reflective qualities. If storage is an issue, use shelves and stack them with fun trinkets or flowers. Don’t forget about the wall itself! Add some flavor with colorful, patterned wallpaper or go for a brightly painted accent wall.
Home decorations make great table toppers.
If your living room needs a lift, liven it up by adding a few thoughtful home decor accessories. Photos always make great additions, but keep them interesting by mixing and matching your frames. When lit, candles add a romantic, relaxing feel, and coffee table books about travel, home design, fashion or photography make for great conversation starters.
House decorations can cozy up your floor.
While floor space may be limited, there’s always room for a well-placed area rug or two. These are a great way to add texture, color and warmth to a hardwood or tile floor. Choose a traditional floral pattern or some funky chevrons to get started, then pair your pattern with a textured Berber rug or soft shag for ultimate indulgence.
Add some vibrancy to neutral-colored furniture.
One of the easiest ways to punch up a look is through the fabric you display. Swap out throw pillows and blankets to liven up a dull home decor foundation, and search right here on Houzz for bold or mismatched patterns, comfy throws and cushy pillows.
Don’t forget the drapes.
Dress up your windows with elegant, bold or even light and airy treatments. Because of their size, floor-length curtains can make a dramatic difference and can transition a room from traditional to contemporary all by themselves.
