Tips to enhance your home
- Posted by Renaud
Do you want your interior to look like the ones you see in magazines? This is often easier said than done as you might lack space, have an unsightly electrical installation or limited financial means which trample down your enthusiasm. We want to share you three tips to enhance your home without squandering your budget.
Review and replace your lighting
All decorators agree on the importance of good lighting. First, it is essential to prioritize natural light: in other words, do not prevent it from flooding the room with poorly placed curtains. You should also play around with mirrors on your shelves to give the impression of a larger space..
Furthermore, we must also consider the fundamental nature of electric lighting. The wrong bulb gives your room dull colors; the wrong pendant light creates an impression of suffocation. Feel free to increase the number of light sources and opt for spotlights and dimmers to better control your lighting.
To ensure that your electric bill doesn’t get out of hand at the end of the year, you should do research on your electricity supplier, on this site for example. When purchasing your lighting equipment, you should always remember to reconcile brightness and energy savings.
Hide bad-looking elements
In all homes, there are accessories that are needed but not always very pretty: plugs of all kinds, cables and air conditioners. You can easily beautify your home by hiding these elements and harmonizing your interior. It is not necessary to embark on an impossible renovation project: today, everyone can tackle the problem and almost all decoration and DIY stores sell accessories to hide sockets and electrical wires. For air conditioners, it’s the same principle: an cover in the right material will hide this ugly box. Find all our range of air conditioner covers here. Finally, don’t neglect your switches as they are really easy to embellish for a low price and are also starting to establish themselves as important decorative elements, as you can read here.
Don’t neglect the accessories
What is essential is found in the details and the accessories of your interior are an integral part of your home decor. They make the difference: plants, cushions, curtains, but also drawer knobs and door handles enhance your interior and harmonize the colors and style of your home. Of course, it takes certain skills to achieve these results.
Do not hesitate to hang your curtains under the ceiling rather than immediately above the windows. This trick will brighten the room and give the impression that these windows are larger than they are in reality. Choose your rods and curtains wisely: home décor stores sell rods in various and original materials, giving you the opportunity to affirm the unique style of your room and make the difference
In short, the best advice to improve the decoration of your home is to leave nothing to chance!
