As the coronavirus outbreak continues to keep the public indoors, many homeowners are starting to use their spare time to redecorate their homes. Here are our top ideas and tips for making your house a home sweet home.
Experiment with lighting
Lighting can make any feature of a home stand out and enhance the look of a room. There are many different types of lighting that you can experiment with in your home:
- Hanging Lights
- Spot Lights
- LED Strips
- Coloured Lights
- Accent Lighting
Decorate with large plants
Add some more natural features to your home with some large plants. There are many varieties of indoor plants to choose from including:
- Howea forsteriana
- Aloe mitriformis
- Asparagus falcatus
- Schefflera ‘Nora’
Having more plants inside the home not only improves the look of a room but also reduces stress and absorbs toxins from the air.
You can even use small plants such as cactuses to enhance your window sill or bookshelf.
Go for an open-plan approach
If all of your rooms are stuck around four walls, there could be an opportunity to go open plan. Most modern homes go for this approach as it brings in more natural light to the home, and has many benefits for parties. Having a kitchen/dining/family area in one large space improves the space of a home immensely, giving you the freedom to relax and enjoy the new surroundings.
Add different textures and materials
From decorative pieces made from brass to eye-catching crystal accessories, different materials can add new colours and textures to a room. Try experimenting with different coloured metal, glass and fabric furniture to leave your guests inspired when they step through your door.
