As someone who spends a lot of time at home and in my room, I think it is important to have a change of scenery. To be able to create a desired aesthetic in order to improve your mindset and mood. But alterations need not be expensive or extensive. So here we are…
My top five ways to change up your room:
Shelves come in all shapes, colours and designs and can suit any room decor. They provide endless possibilities, with many unique ways to fill yours. A selection of books arranged in colour or size order may be an option. Or some photographs, candles and ornaments. Whatever you choose it won’t cost you much time or effort. If you look in the right place- shops like Argos, Wilkos and The Range- you will find surprisingly good value for money. Furthermore, you don’t need skill or a suitable wall type to hang them. I simply buy and use specialist Velcro attachments (can’t currently remember the specific name, but feel free to comment if you know or need me to find out). You can obviously then decorate the shelves as you wish with any possessions you want to display. Simple as that! Room transformed.
Add A Feature Wall
Using contrasting paint, images, paintings, clusters of photo frames, collages or even a poster. Adding interest to one wall and leaving others bare can provide a real statement and make any room appear bigger. Just make sure you stick to one wall/one section of a wall that is in view but not overly distracting (maybe not directly behind a TV, for example), and it should provide a sophisticated air to the room.
Change Your Upholstery
By changing curtains, bedding, rugs, cushions or blinds, you can quickly (and fairly inexpensively) transform your room. For a modern feel you could go for sleek, monochrome colours. If you want a fun look you may choose clashing colours and patterns. Either way, by changing a piece of, or even all of your upholstery, you can be sure to see a transformation in the appearance of any room.
Take Some Photos
Photographs can be used in garlands, photo walls, frames and more to update any room. This also adds interest and provides an uplifting distraction for anyone in the room.
Furniture, walls, intricate details and more. Pretty self explanatory. Find some paint, grab your brush, and get started.
