10 Cost effective ways to decorate your home

Refurbishing your home décor does not always need to be a major project and you need not have to spend a fortune to do it.

1. Choose two contrast colours - Black and white, say, or white and one bright colour – and use them as a repeating theme throughout, such as a row of red and white pillows on a sofa, or robin’s egg blue walls and all-white furnishings

2. Reorganise the house décors - Too much of good thing is too much. Try taking all your home décor accessories and putting them in a box, then putting them back one by one where they’ll have the most impact.

3. Take down all your paintings and other art and move them around to different walls or different rooms. It’ll be like seeing them for the first time.

4. Window dressings - Draperies you can hem to the right size (or leave to puddle on the floor), or you can make your own from sheets or lengths of designer outlet fabric. Hang an attractive new curtain rod, also available in stock sizes.

5. French Windows make a difference, they provide illusion of extra space

6. Multi-Purpose furniture which can reduce the requirement of too many furniture’s and makes the house look more spacious.

7. Modular Furniture - IKEA and other home stores provide the type which can be dismantled and re-formed again when required.

8. Inexpensive frame mouldings from the box store can transform a plain wall or hallway into an instant panelled look. Paint the mouldings in a contrasting shade or white.

9. Placing a mirror between two windows tricks the eye into thinking there is another window there and helps maximize natural light. Casually propping a full-length mirror against the wall brings a relaxed mood to the room.

10. Old unused wood pieces in good condition can be given the expensive look by just using the right type of varnish to have a glassy and shiny finish.
