Without change, life can get boring… and so can your home! Seeing the same colours, the same furnishing, and the same designs over years can be disappointing and dull. And that is why it is necessary to make alterations and usher in different ideas from time to time, so that you get the opportunity to fall in love with your precious abode again. And the best thing is, livening up your home doesn’t have to be an expensive procedure. Small touches can be powerful too! So check out these 6 cool ideas to make your old and boring interiors lust-worthy.
It might be time to make bold choices and pick unusual colours for those faded walls. While a lighter colour scheme is believed to create a peaceful atmosphere, there is no harm in shaking things up a bit. Painting walls is a low cost solution to your problem too. And if you are ambitious enough, you could just do it yourself. Who knows, it could become a fun family project!
One of the most popular concepts in interior designing right now is the introduction of open plan layouts in homes, like the one shown here. And usually this involves the integration of the kitchen, dining and living areas, or at least the kitchen and dining area. Knocking down just one wall is inexpensive and doesn’t require much time too. This will actually and visually open up your interiors, and lend the illusion of extra space. Small homes especially should implement this concept for an economical and refreshing makeover.
Furniture on wheels might sound a little childish, but in reality, they can be lifesavers. Moveable furniture is one of the most convenient things you will ever buy for your home. It leaves you with the freedom to create space as and when you require. And you can also put it away after you’re done using it. Moveable tables, kitchen islands, chairs, and dressers are just some of the popular items available in the market nowadays which can spruce up your home in a whole new way, without compromising on elegant aesthetics.

Quirky is the name of the game. Tired of looking at the boring white and gray tiles in your bathroom? Go hunt to add something unique to your bathroom, such as an African mask, a ladder that serves as a towel rack or even a giant flowerpot. The end result will be a bathroom with a completely new look and feel. You will definitely fall in love with its all new rejuvenating style!
Don’t be afraid to take risks when it comes to redecorating your home. Instead of painting or breaking down walls in your house, choose wallpaper for a cheaper and simpler makeover. You can pick from thousands of different options, featuring different colours and wacky designs. Move around your furniture to highlight the wallpaper, and throw in some matching pillows for a stunning impact.
You can never go wrong with bright hues, as long as you don’t overdo it. Choose a colour scheme that reflects you as a person, since it is your home. You can either replace certain pieces of furniture to incorporate brighter shades, or you can redecorate an entire room to change its personality as shown here. Go with hot pinks, sunny yellows and patterns like floral and stripes for an attractive setting.
