yourhomeimprovement july 2016Decorating a space sometimes can be costly. If you are on a budget and want a few quick fix ideas to refresh your home, here are a few tips that will cost you next to nothing.

The problem: Your room does not feel inviting – To create a more inviting space, gather pillows from around your home and place them on your sofa. Choose pillowcases that have complementary colours for a mismatched look.

The problem: You have low ceilings – Create the illusion of high ceilings by moving your curtain rods above the window frame. Make sure the curtains graze the bottom of the window or the floor.

The problem: You can’t put holes in your walls – If putting holes in your walls is not an option, place large mirrors angled against walls or on wall shelving.

The problem: Boring built-in book shelves – For those boring built in’s, add a bold colour to window seats with throw pillows. Look for predominant colours in your books for a colour pallette.

The problem: Furniture lines every wall – Furniture aligned at the edges of walls creates an unwelcoming living space. Instead place furniture in groupings to encourage conversation.

The problem: Boring displays – Placing frames or arrangements in even numbers is less pleasing for the eye. Instead go for objects in threes or fives to make your display interesting.

The Problem: A Tiny table – If you have a small table and want to give the illusion of size add a table runner.
