Decor Ideas to Instantly Transform Your Home
Are you feeling like it’s time to give your home décor a makeover and finally create your dream home aesthetic? Well we’re here to help! Here are a few home decorating ideas you can try, to make your home’s interior feel more inviting, exciting, and overall, a more personalised space!
Home décor ideas for your whole house
Giving your home interior an upgrade doesn’t have to be an expensive process.
A design idea that can easily upgrade your space, is replacing old door handles or tap faucets. This simple change can make an outdated space feel more modern and bring life back into a bland room.
Another simple home decorating idea to improve your space, is decluttering the items you already have, and potentially upcycling them into something new and exciting. Upcycling is a great way to save money, be creative, and create feature items in your space. Decluttering also helps you to remove any broken, old, or forgotten items that are taking up space in your home.
If your home doesn’t get a lot of natural light, try adding mirrors throughout your house . Mirrors are a décor item must-have as they can make your home feel more spacious and brighter by reflecting light rays throughout the room.
Décor ideas for specific rooms
Wall décor ideas
If you have bare walls, your space can feel impersonal and less interesting. Instead, spice up your wall décor by adding some wall art. Perhaps add a painting you feel inspired by, or have some of your favourite photographs enlarged and printed onto canvases, it can make your space feel more inviting and personalised.
If art isn’t your thing, perhaps a fresh coat of paint will give your home the transformation it needs. There are so many different paint colours which can help you create the atmosphere you desire, and potentially inspire new home décor!
For something a bit different to your standard wall paint, a design idea to try incorporating into your home décor is textured paint. Texture is created through the way the paint brush is used to apply the paint. Another option is a matte finish paint. Matte paint (also known as flat paint) is great for a clean and crisp finish to an area and is a less expensive option.
If you’re renting, making changes to the walls can be difficult, so a way you can still make the space your own (while not making any permanent changes) is by using stick-on hooks that can easily peel off the wall when you need to move. Try hanging paintings or lights from the hooks to transform your space.
Bedroom décor ideas
One way to upgrade your bedroom’s décor is investing in a higher thread sheet and quilt set that’s softer on your skin and helps you fall asleep faster! Not only do they feel like a dream, but they also make your space feel more luxurious and inviting to be in. You could also add soft rugs beside your bed so that when you wake up, your feet are warm and cosy, great for cool winter mornings!
Another décor idea to try, is buying a charging station for your devices. With the number of electronic devices people own increasing, we’re adding more cords which makes charging them all at once challenging. A charging station eliminates this struggle, making your space appear cleaner and more organised.
Kitchen décor ideas
The kitchen is a difficult room to style as it needs to be a functional space. To make a statement with your kitchen décor, without creating additional clutter, try replacing the wall splash with a new colour, or texture. This decorating idea can make all the difference in an old space and make the room feel brighter if you opt for lighter colours.
Another design idea to revamp your kitchen is purchasing appliances in a funky colour you love. This makes a functional item more appealing to your overall décor, by adding fun pops of colour.
To give your kitchen décor an even bigger upgrade, why not change up your blinds to create a more modern space. Our Venetian Blinds are a great option of kitchens. Available in both an aluminium or timber finish, venetian blinds are waterproof and easy to clean, perfect for a space with the potential for mess.
Living room décor ideas
As the living room is a space for the whole family to relax in, having a comfortable atmosphere and seating is a must. Whether it’s by adding fluffy blankets for winter, a new sofa, beanbags, or a reclining chair, a cosy space will make time together more enjoyable.
A living room décor idea to make this room a standout in your home is adding coffee table books. Available in a range of colours, shapes and sizes, coffee table books are great for making a room feel more upmarket and classy. These books are designed to have an expensive aesthetic without the price tag. Coffee table books are typically about luxury or cultural topics such as fashion designers, high-end brands, or art but you’re free to choose books that work with your space and are on topics you find interesting. They also provide conversation starters when you have guests over!
Adding a floor rug brings colour and texture into the room, helping to create a cohesive living room space. You want to go for a rug that’s large enough to fit the majority, if not all your furniture in an area, to bring together everything in the room. To tie together some of the colours from the rug, try coordinating it with your throw pillows or blankets.
A great addition to your living room décor is Sheer Curtains as they have the look and feel of curtains, with the functionality of blinds. Sheer curtains are great for letting in the natural light during the day but can also blockout unwanted light if you’re watching TV and want to reduce the light glare from outside. They also add to the luxury and cosy feel of the space by softening incoming light.
Bathroom décor ideas
To give your bathroom an update, decorating ideas to improve the space include adding a candle in your favourite fragrance, new storage for your cosmetic products, or even indoor plants for that pop of colour. An indoor plant which is a great option for a bathroom is a Spider Plant as they love humid environments and don’t require a lot of light.
To give you extra privacy as well as a more customised space, a home décor idea to really transform the space is adding Vertical Blinds. Verticals are versatile, long lasting, durable, and very easy to clean, they can also be customised to suit any home décor colour palette.
Home office décor ideas
If you work from home, your office is likely a room you spend a lot of time in, so it’s important that it’s a space that you feel calm and comfortable in. To make your home office feel cosier, add an essential oil diffuser, pairing it with oils you like the scent of. Another way to improve the space is by keeping it organised. When the space feels cluttered and messy, it can be hard to concentrate on anything else, so investing in desk organisation, bookshelves or drawers may save your sanity!
Ensuring you have enough light in your home office while you’re working is critical, as it reduces unnecessary eye strain and helps brighten up the space with natural light. A blind option to add to your office décor is our Roller Blinds. Roller blinds are a versatile option for you to control the light coming into your space, all while looking stylish in the process. Roller blinds come in a variety of colours and fabric options, giving you plenty of choices for styling your home office.
Laundry décor ideas
The laundry is another space that’s hard to style as it is primarily a functional space. To make small décor changes, you could attach your washing machine and dryer to the wall to give you extra floor space for an extra laundry basket or a drying rack. If you have any cupboards or shelving, adding laundry jars for organisation is not only aesthetically pleasing, but it also keeps everything neat and easy for any member of the family to help with the washing!
Another design idea for your laundry is to have a dedicated container for lost socks. Lost socks are one of the greatest mysteries of the universe, so having a space for them may help reduce the number of mismatched socks floating around your house!
Décor ideas to make your space feel bigger
There are a few interior design tips you can use to make your space appear larger.
Substitute wood or plastic for glass
Particularly in smaller rooms such as the bathroom, where the room can feel cramped, a design idea to transform the space is by using glass instead of wood or hard plastics. This helps to extend the space, rather than shutting it off and making the room feel small.
Hang your curtains higher than your window frame
To give your space a feeling of grandeur and being more spacious, the way you hang your curtains can make a massive difference. By hanging your curtains around 7.5cm higher than the window, it gives the illusion of the ceiling being higher, and the room larger.
As your curtains should go down to the floor, it can make purchasing standardised curtains challenging. At ABC Blinds, you can get your curtains custom-made to size so they fit your space perfectly, improved home décor is a bonus!
