Redecorating a room does require substantial funds, especially if we want to make a big change in the room. But, do you know that funds are not the only thing that matters when you want to decorate a house? Yes, sometimes with limited funds, we are even more creative in designing and redecorating the rooms in our homes. We can explore many things to make the appearance of a room new.
And here are some simple but effective steps to create a new look of a room. And for sure, the following tips will not drain your pocket. Curious? The following points are:
1. Repaint the wall of the room
Yes, replacing old paint with new paint is always effective in presenting a new and different look for a room. The price of paint that is quite affordable will certainly not burden your bag. You can do the painting yourself and don’t need to hire a handyman because painting is easy and can be done by everyone.
For new paint colors, then choose a color that is fresher than the previous paint color. You can use colors like green or blue that can bring new nuances in your room.
2. Apply 3R (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle)
When your intention to redecorate a room collides with limited funds, then once again creativity must play. You can apply the 3R principle (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) by utilizing items that are not used in your home. Use used bottles or cans as a pencil or flower vase, but you need to decorate them before use.
In addition, you can make tissue boxes or place magazines from boxes or used boxes that have been decorated or wrapped in colorful paper. Place the recycled items in the living room and you can show your work to your friends.
3. Give additional lighting
Sometimes, giving lighting in some corners of the room can make the room look brighter. Place colorful lights with unique lamp shades. These lamp shades are sold for quite cheap prices. Or, you can make your own lampshade creations made from plastic bottles or used plastic balls that are painted, shaped, and colored as desired.
To choose the right location in placing additional lighting, you can choose an area that is rarely used. The area under the stairs is a potential area for additional lighting. In addition to creating an artistic impression in the room, the area under the stairs that is illuminated will eliminate the impression of dark and dusty.
4. Install the cover on the wall and ceiling
Leaked and hollow walls and ceilings are views that can damage the aesthetics of your room. However, to improve it all, of course you need a lot of money. To outsmart, you can switch to wallpaper or wall sticker to cover the hole.
Choose a wallpaper or wall sticker that is patterned like a flower pattern, cartoon, or just color strokes. Thus, the walls and ceilings that used to look dull and not hollow now become covered and change to a more attractive appearance.
5. Place the flower next to the sofa or on the guest table
Flowers never fail in creating the impression of a beautiful room. Fresh and colorful flowers can instantly present a more beautiful room. With its distinctive fragrance, it can certainly provide natural freshness in the room. Therefore, always put fresh flowers, especially in your living room.
If you can’t serve the original flower in your living room, then you can replace it with a plastic flower that is certainly no less beautiful.
6. Replace the old curtains with new ones
Not many people realize that curtains are also able to give a new and different feel to the room. And for sure, the price of a set of curtains is certainly cheaper compared to overhauling the total room in your house. For that reason, replacing natural curtains with new ones can also be one of the cheaper ways of decorating the room.
