Changing the look and feel of your home doesn't have to cost a fortune. We can use simple readymade and inexpensive items to change the entire look of a roomby following a few steps as given below:

Decide – For each roomthat you want to makeover, take some time and decide what stays and what need to go. A lot of time, we keep unnecessary items in a room that makes the space look cluttered and it is important to get rid of the same.

Repaint your furniture – Apart frombeing a productive and a fun filled way tospend your weekends, repainting your old furniture with different types of paint finishes can instantly transformthe look of a space. Try going for a rustic and distressed paint look on old furniture to enhance the antique look.

Play with textures – Textures play an important role in introducing visual weight into a room. Textures could be introduced as wall paints, surface finishes of furniture, upholstery fabric or even small itemas a floor rug. While rough textures make a space feel intimate and grounded, smooth textures bring a sleeker andmore aloof tone to the room.

Change upholstery and drapery – Using slip covers over chairs with Velcro fasteners works well if you want to have a different look every season simply by changing the covers and their colors. Upholstery with accent colors instantly change the look of a space by introducing an element of pop.

Hang a mirror – The strategic placement of amirror can add an enormous amount of natural light into your home if placed at a location where it can reflect the beam of sunlight coming into the room. In addition to bouncing light, the mirror creates a virtual space and adds drama into the room.

Bring in your garden home – Whether used in hanging pots, ground pots, climbers on wall surfaces, creepers from high shelves or simply as bright accents in a tray, plants bring a lot of variety in bringing about a fresh look into a room. Brightly colored fruits like lemons or cut flowers like Daffodils placed in a tray in a kitchen serve a dual purpose of display and function.

Go green – Going green takes simple, smart and small steps. Follow the three R’s – Refurbish, Re-paint and Recycle. By re-using old furniture, frames, artwork, etc., you are making your own small world contribution to saving our planet.
