In any case, whether you are planning to decorate a condo bgc or simply looking for a way to incorporate a brand new feel to your home, here are some of the indispensable home decors your home should have:
- Flirty cushions
Cushions are like diminutive versions of pillows and they come in a myriad of sizes and shapes. These are useful as you can essentially put them anywhere—from your couch to the sofa. The simple addition of them can instantly make a room more appealing to the eye and cozier to the onlooker. It is up to you whether you wish to match the cushion colors with the wall or the sofa or play around with contrasts.
- Floor attires
Most homeowners think floors are inconsequential elements to a home. So much so that they leave it bare and undecorated. If that works for you, then leave it be. However, if you truly want a stunning effect, utilize carpets or rugs. You do not necessarily have to cover the entire floor with rugs, but it is essential that a sizable portion is covered.
- Window Accessories
Most homeowners seem to think that window accessories are limited to hanging a curtain and that is it. However, there is so much more to decorating your windows than simply giving them the old and trusty window treatments. Sure, to many these decor items may seem inconsequential. But in reality, these very same minor items can add great value to a room. To give your windows that wow factor, add tassels to your curtains—preferably ones with character such as colorful ones. Moreover, choose something a bit more festive and elegant when it comes to tying your curtains. While you can easily find readymade tie backs in furniture boutiques and shops, give your homes a more personal touch by utilizing necklaces you no longer use. In this regard, you would be adding a bohemian flavor to the space—one that is specially personalized with the use of your old necklaces.
It has already been a given that mirrors are excellent for adding space to diminutive space. Furthermore, they are great for playing around with light and ambiance as well. If you wish to make a room appear more spacious and roomier, simply install some mirrors and have them reflect natural light. Hang any of these mirrors in any area of your home and let the magic work itself before your eyes.
- Some life
To give your rooms a bit of life, all you really need to do is add life. You can do this by adding either plants or fishes. If you are under budget constraints and cannot afford an aquarium, settle for a plant you can easily take care of or a fish bowl.
