If you want to decorate your home and do not want to complicate yourself too much, here are 10 easy and economical tips that will help you.
More space in the bathroom
If it’s too small, you can make it look more spacious by painting the walls and floor in the same color or by putting the same tiles on both surfaces. On the contrary, if you use tiles of different shades, especially with striped designs, it will seem narrower. If you also place a large mirror over the sink, occupying almost the entire wall, the sense of amplitude will increase.
The kitchen, in triangle
If possible, make sure that the distribution of your kitchen is organized in three points, forming a triangle. The vertices are the zone of cooking and preparation of dishes, the storage of products and the handling of food (where we peel, wash, cut …). It is a way to have everything at hand and facilitate work.
Plants in the kitchen
To give a different touch to your kitchen, place plants where they do not hinder at the time of cooking. In addition to encouraging the environment, you will prevent the odors of fried foods and stews from permeating the surface.
When the budget is tight and you have little furniture, try to occupy the spaces with large objects. You will find vases of considerable size, large baskets and other decorative objects of great volume at a good price.
Playing with colors
To achieve a bedroom with personality and at the same time easy to redecorate, try to choose neutral and clear tones for large surfaces (walls, cabinets, ceiling, quilts …) and combine them with touches of color in accessories such as cushions, blankets or lamps. So, when you get tired of the decoration and want to give another air to the room, you just have to choose a different color or pattern for the accessories, which are very easy to replace. And it’s cheaper
The long and narrow pose a problem in the decoration of a house because they give a dismal aspect. One way to make the corridor seem wider than it actually is and at the same time get more light, is to install a row of focal points of light on the ceiling and alternate orienting them to one wall and another.
For the living room to keep harmony, the key is that the measurements of the dining table are the exact ones. To calculate them, remember that behind each chair you must leave a free space of 70 to 90 centimeters. This way, your guests will be able to sit and get up comfortably and it will not give the feeling that the furniture is piled up in a little space.
Place the pictures
To decorate one of the walls of the room with different pictures, install them at different heights. That way, you’ll dress the surface but keep the balance. If, on the other hand, you have collections of prints or pictures of the same format, it is preferable that you place them symmetrically (at the same height both vertically and horizontally) to print order to the environment.
You can use a small area to read, for example in the living room, placing a trunk under the window. You can put some cushions on it and use it to sit and read and keep books and magazines inside.
They can completely change the appearance of a room according to their shapes and colors or where they are placed: the traditional spike-shaped ones located in the living room or the comedior add an elegant touch; perfumed candles add warmth to bedrooms and bathrooms; those made with several colored wax blocks are perfect anywhere you want to give a cheerful touch. If you put any of them in a transparent vase with sand, colored marbles or stones, you will bring your personal stamp.
