Every day is a perfect day to spruce things up in your home. From faux fur blankets that can turn a plain-Jane bedroom into a cosy sleeper's paradise, and smart home decors that can improve the look of your space while serving double, here are some tried and true home improvement ideas that will boost the value and aesthetics of your abode.
Make your house smarter
Trends come and go, but making energy-efficient upgrades has a ton of benefits. For one, having a smart home makes life easier and more convenient. It can also improve your level of comfort and security with just a few clicks here and there.
While making your house smarter may sound like a big investment, it doesn't always have to be the case. You can always start with the basics by adding both style and function to your space.
Do you find yourself spending more time in the living room? Liven up your space with a smart coffee table with a built-in phone charger and wireless speaker instead of the traditional corner table. While you're at it, you can also get yourself an adjustable bamboo book and tablet stand for the perfect viewing experience.
Add more texture and layers
One of the best ways to improve a space is by adding more texture and layers. If you want to give structure to an otherwise mundane surface, you can easily do so with bright and colorful rugs. If you're feeling fancy and want to set the mood in your bedroom, adding a chunky throw blanket at the foot of your bed will do the trick.
Move your furniture around
You don't even need to buy a coffee table or a new accent piece to spice things up a bit. Sometimes, rearranging the layout of your furniture is all you need to create the perfect place to settle in and relax.
While the right pieces can make or break a room, there are a few pointers to bear in mind when moving things around. For instance, the seating arrangement should be in favor of whatever view your room has to offer. And since living rooms often double as storage areas, your space needs to be set up in such a way that can accommodate drawers, cabinets, and other drop zones.
Fill your house with plants
Add a pop of color and life to your living space with a mix of plants and flowers. Vines and ferns can highlight a focal point of your interiors, while flowering plants like orchids can add an elegant touch to any home. If you want to take it up a notch, you can even start a gorgeous indoor garden on low maintenance with cactus and succulents.
Meanwhile, if you aren't naturally blessed with the highly-coveted green thumb, you can always opt for artificial plants that look so real, even the most discerning eyes wouldn't even notice that they are not.
Fancy up a dull surface
A smart coffee table may look plain and all, but you can instantly add character to any surface with trinkets and other decorative accessories. If you're a collector and prefer the element of warmth or nostalgia, a nice trick to display your smallest of knick-knacks is to use jars and bottles of different colours and sizes.
Be careful, though, with these miscellaneous objects since they tend to make flat surfaces appear cluttered, and they can even disrupt the flow of your space.
Display more art and pictures
You don't need to be artistic to appreciate a work of art, and how the perfect piece can elevate your space. A painting can provide color, movement, and balance to any room, allowing viewers to see things with a new perspective.
When done right, art and photographs also have the power to uplift our moods and affect our emotions. Putting your favourite memories on display in picture frames is probably the easiest way to warm your home.
