10 Decorating Ideas That You Should Try

Last Updated on April 14, 2022 by Kravelv

Let’s face it, decorating a home can be a bit overwhelming because the options are practically endless. But that’s the same thing that makes it so much fun.

So, whether you’re looking for some pretty cool DIY ideas or some handy decorating tips that would make a room  stand out, here are simple (and fun!) decorating tips to try:

1. Swap Throw Pillows

These are some of the easiest ways to spruce up a bedroom or living room. Introduce a new print, color or design, with a throw pillow that could make an old space feel new again.

2. Be Inspired by Nature

There are lots of benefits of plants indoors. They help breathe life to any room, and for spaces with monotone hues, it adds in a gorgeous hint of color.

So, be inspired by nature to create a more inviting and grounded environment. When decorating, think about elements like seagrass, wood, jute, marble, rattan, and brushed concrete.

3. Cozy It Up With Sheepskin Throws

If there’s an area in a home that feels a bit blunt, then adding sheepskin throws is one of the easiest fixes. This helps bring out texture, warmth, and comfort. It’s also highly affordable, and at the same time, easy to move around a space as one’s needs and moods tend to shift.

Sheepskins make a room look more luxurious and cozy—drape them on beds, seats, or place them on floors.

4. Upcycle Furniture

Thinking about throwing away that worn-out piece of furniture? Hold on. Take another look at it, and see if you can still upcycle it. A new upholstery, a coat of varnish, is one of the best ways to upcycle an unloved piece of furniture.

5. Mismatch Your Furniture

Got your eye on a great statement piece that you found in a yard sale, but a bit worried that it wouldn’t fit in your existing furniture? Well, mismatched furniture is actually a trend.

Kitchen seating is an excellent example. A variety of colors and styles can look great. Found and fell in love with a bright orange chair? The great news is, one doesn’t have to buy the entire set to get it.

6. Use Pretty Storage Boxes

Anyone who loves decorating knows that storage always comes in handy. So, why not make feature storage by using cute trunks, or those beautiful cardboard boxes?

Not only would they give a lot of extra space to store things; overall, they also look pretty fab in a home’s interior as well.

7. Get Organized

Try to give everything to its right place and declutter as much as possible. When everything is neatly organized, you’d end up with an added extra space. It also creates an illusion that you have a much larger space.

Install coat hooks, or better yet, bring in a coat rack near the front door. Also, put a small folding chair underneath it to sit on when taking off one’s shoes. Doing so will prevent that dreaded, yet (inevitable!) piling of clothes.

8. Rearrange a Room’s Layout

Why not try to Feng Shui the room by moving furniture around so that the place could welcome as much natural sunlight as possible? One way to rearrange a room’s layout is to move furniture at a completely different angle. Work on clearing the doorway or surround the fireplace as well.

9. Display Artwork and Collectibles

Gather all artwork in the loft and finally come into terms of hanging it! Similar to a photo gallery, hang these artworks or prop them on side tables. A great way to add character to space is to consider getting medieval collectibles. They are timeless and each can serve as excellent conversation pieces.

Placing artwork and collectibles will also give it a much-needed revamp. Pick something abstract or vibrant, one thing that truly makes a statement.

10. Pile up Blankets and Cushions

Start piling pillows, blankets, cushions, and throws on the bed! Not only will this create a more relaxing haven, but it will also look as if it’s straight from a boutique hotel room. It’s a win-win!

The Takeaway

Making these small updates in your space could make a huge difference. These are easy and fun decorating tips that could spruce up space, something you’d always long to go home to.
