1. Introduce an Accent Wall
Bored of your room? Pick a wall and turn it into an accent wall. An accent wall is one which not only breaks the monotony of a room but also gives you a focal point to look at. Keep in mind, since the wall will draw all the attention towards it, it needs to be done tastefully. While some people tend to get it painted in a different color, why not go an easier route by opting for marbled wallpaper?
Marble wallpaper is an extremely easy way to add some visual diversity and a texture to your room. In this manner, you can give the room more depth and dimension as well. Additionally, the type of marble wallpaper you pick will also add another visual factor. For example: Light pink marble with a gold and white pattern will make the room softer, whereas a gray-blue pattern will make the room look more mysterious.
2. Highlight Natural Light
If there’s plenty of natural light coming in your room, make sure to use this to your advantage. Get bigger windows or opt for a glass patio door that lets you get additional natural light into your home. You can also maximize usage by applying some self-adhesive wallpaper on a wall to bounce the natural light into other areas of your house.
For example, if you’re only getting natural light which falls on one wall, use a light-colored self-adhesive wallpaper to reflect the light. Light colors tend to reflect light better and make a room feel airy as well. This can be a great trick to make a small, dark room look airy and more spacious. Additionally, you can also hang up light curtains made from sheer fabric. The sheer fabric adds to the natural aura and can make your room look welcoming.
3. Add Some Greenery
It’s always a good idea to add some greenery in your home in the form of houseplants. Indoor houseplants can be a fun way to not only add a pop of color but also improve the quality of the indoor air.
If you’re worried about the plant’s watering and sunlight needs, opt for low-maintenance plants such as succulents that do not require a lot of water or a lot of sunlight. Additionally, you can also choose a leaves pattern on self-adhesive wallpaper. Add a touch of greenery in this manner to any room and you won’t have to worry about watering or looking after your plants at all.
4. Pick Your Carpet Wisely
The carpet of a room ties the room together, so make sure you pick yours wisely. While you can opt for different sizes and shapes, make sure that it is in a color that compliments all the other elements of your room. Additionally, the placement of the carpet can also make your room look better.
For example, if you place the carpet at least an inch away from the edges of the wall, you can make it look more spacious. Moreover, you don’t need to make sure that you’re using the carpet in a room. Adding one to the hall can make the hall look brighter and more tied in with the theme of the house.
5. Mix and Match with Accessories
The accessories you have in your room play a key role in tying the theme of the house together. This means that you can mix and match the themes and pick and choose them as needed. Additionally, you can always swap them to make them match with other elements.
For example, if you are using marbled wallpaper, you can have marbled vases, plates and matching accessories that complement the texture wall and ties in well with the theme of the home as well.
All these tips will help you give a new look to your home in the easiest way possible, without costing you an arm and a leg.
