Home is more than a refuge. It is an identification of your social status and a tangible symbol that defines your family unit. Therefore, it is normal for us to feel pride in the house we live in, and hence the need to create the best impression with our visitors. Here are a few simple and inexpensive tricks that you can do to refurbish your home without making a hole in your wallet.

Blings and polish

Nothing attracts the eye more than the stuff that shines. Crystal accessories, bronzed furniture or decorative pieces made of stainless steel and brass are an excellent way of inspiring your guests the moment they step through the door. But don’t overdo it, as too much bling may make your design look garish.

A painting speaks a thousand emotions

The presence of art in your living space makes a strong statement towards your style and identity. Not only does a nicely rendered painting in the living room stimulate conversation, but it also gives off an aura of poshness and culture. Some may assume that good art costs a fortune, but that may not be true. If you are on a budget, then shop for paintings at the flea markets or bazaars as they should achieve the same effect.

Light makes space

Lighting can make or break even the best interior design. For starters, you can choose to have an open plan design for your home to maximise light exposure. The brighter it is, the larger your living space would visually look. However, too much light will bring about a rise in temperature in the room, either physically or psychologically. Hence, tone down the light factor in a particular space that you want to reserve for resting and relaxation.

Draw them up

Pendant lamps are the best choice of lighting for a modern home interior, whether it be in the dining or living room. Make sure you choose something that has an extraordinary, unusual design, one that calls attention and triggers visual focus upwards.

As the saying goes, we can take humans out of nature, but we can’t take nature out of them. Many would appreciate the refreshing look that a plant lends to your interior design. Not only do plants contribute in the aesthetic sense, but they also absorb toxins and provide fresh air to the micro-atmosphere that is your home. 

Begin by arranging a couple of large plants in the hallway or place them in your living area. Then move on to the smaller plants as you decorate the bedroom or the toilet. Since plants don’t cost much money, they are a good way of elevating your house on a budget.
