Here’s a list of some clever, out-of-the-box, low-budget ideas that promise to add value to your décor and make your rooms look spacious too.
Since décor takes most of the space in the room, choosing the right décor is extremely important. Select and place the items in such a way that they do not disturb the space; also, make them transitional. For instance, use folding chairs and rolling tables and when it comes to drapes, opt for a floor-to-ceiling length as it will draw the eye upwards and add visual space.
Colour me true:
Lighter walls and floors always give the illusion of space. Other than white and beige, you can use pastel colours such as pink, blue, coral or mint hues on the walls. Pastel colours not only make your room look spacious but also add a refreshing touch.
This is one of the most important aspects to keep in mind while re-decorating your house. You need to store and organise everything smartly. Have as much storage as possible in and around the house in the form of cabinets. Opt for furniture that has ample storage facility too. Cabinets look not only good in the kitchen but also in other rooms.
Think out of the box:
Multifunctional furniture helps you save a lot of space. A floor-to-wall open shelf is a great idea if you can keep it organised and uncluttered. It also gives you that additional space on the floor. And you need not place the furniture up against the wall.
Less is more:
Look around your house. You’ll find a lot of items that are eating up into the storage space. Discard all the things you do not use anymore or are too old to use, to make space for the new. Organise things in such a way that they do not take much effort or space in the room.
