Sometimes the smallest of changes can make a huge difference in the way your room appears. Here are 10 easy ways to give your room a makeover without having to go through the hassle of completely redoing it.
Clear the mess:
The first, most important thing to do when considering giving your room a makeover is to clear the clutter. Getting organizers, removing the mess, clearing out space and arranging everything in a proper way, is the way to begin redecorating your room.
Add a touch of green:
Adding a plant in your room gives it a freshness and vibrancy that changes the feel of your interiors. It brings energy and life into your room and brightens up the ambiance. If you don’t have a green finger, adding artificial greens will also help.
Rearrange the cushions:
A few cushions of different shapes and sizes can add color and character to the room. Different patterns and bright colors can go a long way in changing the feel of the interiors.
Rearrange the furniture:
It is amazing how just rearranging what is already there can change the whole feel of your room. Play around with the way your furniture is set up. Remove the rug, change the placement of your bed side table, move your bed a little and your room will have a whole new feel.
Cover the blank walls:
Adding a few paintings or pictures to cover up the blank walls in your rooms can make a huge difference. Graphic prints are another option that can be considered. The way you decorate your room speaks about you as a person and adding art or photographs to your wall can make a huge difference to your interiors.
Change knobs and handles:
Replace your old boring handles on drawers and almirahs with quirky, decorative ones. The little pop of colour will add a whole new dimension to your room.
Don’t be scared to experiment:
Not everything in your room must match. It gets rather dull and boring, when everything matches. You can experiment and play around with the color and patterns. There need not be a particular color scheme at play. Having fun while doing up your room is the best way to give it a makeover.
Accessorize your room:
Add a vase to your room. Put some frames on your table. Decorate the little trinkets you have been saving up and give your room a whole new feel and vibrancy to it.
Play with the curtains:
The curtains give a lot of character to a room. Changing the curtains or experimenting with them can do a lot to change the feel of the room.
Experiment with the lighting:
Ambient lighting goes a long way in changing the feel and atmosphere of a room. Adding a few candles, or a new lampshade will change the essence of the interiors.

With the present condition of our planet recycling is hugely important to sustain and take care of it. However, our efforts to recycle need not be restricted to the government, the municipal authorities or waste management companies. We as individuals can also contribute and help and have fun while doing so. There are awesome and creative ways to recycle your old stuff which you can take advantage of.
Every time we clean our house we wind up with a lot of stuff that we simply throw out without reconsidering that it can be reused and recycled to make something useful. Sometimes trash is not just trash, and it can be transformed and used in a million other ways. And if you can’t make something useful out of your old stuff, you can still probably make something beautiful!
Being committed and responsible towards caring for your environment and planet is the duty of every individual and we should all do our bit towards it. Here is one way you can use waste to transform it into something useful.
DIY vases from old bottles:
Did you recently have a house party and have a lot of bottles lying around? Transform your trash into beautiful vases that you can use to decorate your house. There is nothing more satisfying than being able to create something using waste.
Things you would need:
- A few bottles, or mason jars
- Warm soapy water
- Acrylic paints
First of all, start by collecting all the bottles. The more variety you have in terms of shapes and sizes the more you can experiment and play around.
Soak the bottles in warm soapy water and give them a good wash. Remove all the labels and stickers that are on the bottle.
In a bowl mix some acrylic paint with a little bit of water. Take a syringe and fill it with the paint. Empty the paint in the bottle and spread it coating all the sides evenly.
When all the sides of the inside of the bottle have been covered evenly in paint, turn the bottle upside down and leave it to dry. All the excess colour will drip away and the bottle will be evenly coated.
Once the bottles have all been painted in the same or assorted colours according to your preference, they can be used as vases.
We hope you enjoy making these vases. Jute ropes, motifs,etc,can be used to decorate the vases further. Let your creativity guide you in enjoying this process of creating something useful and beautiful.

With a crisp turn of winds, Fall has officially fallen! As October marks the beginning of Autumn, we decided to help you get a seasonal makeover for your home. When we think of fall, we get these warm and cosy images of beautiful porches, with pumpkins and of course Halloween! But when you think of Fall and home décor, what pops into your head?
Here are a few things that pop into our heads when we think of Fall home decor.
The colours associated with Fall are supposed to be cosy and rich in tone. They reflect the seasonal change of natural life around, and add the right amount of warmth to your home. Shades of Orange and rich Reds are most definitely in! Along with them, it’s safe to also explore some daring colours like Mustard, Terracotta, Butternut, and Coffee! Prussian blue is the trump card (the only one worth using!) that can completely add a royal touch to the shade cards you’re already playing with.
Fall is all about bringing the rustic into the house. A good mix and match of potpourri on display is one of the best ways of commemorating the change of season. Use elements from the season- twigs, leaves, nuts- to effectively channel the feel of Fall. A good potpourri is not only aesthetic to look at but also gives out a beautiful fragrance. Add spices like Nutmeg, Clove, Cinnamon into your potpourri to bring out the smell of Fall. Dried Orange peel is one of the best additions to your potpourri this season.
We’ve told this time and again, playing with lights in your home always changes the tone of warmth required. Candles are big this season. Ditch the artificial lights, bring out the beautiful candle holders or baskets and deck up your home with a wide array of candles. Spice-fragrant candles are of course the number one choice. Also go for coloured candles, to add the right touch of aesthetic drama. The candles can adorn your mantels and corners with ease and charm, undoubtedly.
The change of season demands a change of upholstery around the house. Fall signifies the homecoming of Winter. Hence, while choosing fabrics for your upholstery, that’s the number one pointer to be kept in mind. Faux fur is one of the most quirky additions this season, which can work on your rugs and carpets. The other big fabric to do up your home with is plaid linens. Plaid can work on your curtains, cushions or even your couch depending on its tonality. Always go with the sombre tones of plaid for Fall.
This Fall, work on an extravagant yet simplistic centrepiece to completely level up on your home décor game. A Fall centrepiece most definitely includes everything natural- Candles, Seasonal Leaves, Exquisite wreathes, Seasonal fruits in a basket, Hay- they can all be decked up around your mantel or front porch or even your living space in the most rustic fashion. The use of Pumpkins and Lanterns adds to the drama in the most autumnal fashion imaginable!
A seasonal makeover can always be hectic and stressful. Breeze through pluschdecor.com to go through our products and pick up some items to add to your Fall makeover, minus the hassle!
Gone are the days when we could camp out on our own sprawling living rooms. With the ever growing space crunch in the big cities, small apartments that are fun and functional are the new thing to rave about.
But with a small space, comes the challenge of being smart about every nook and cranny that you can salvage. So, here are 5 decorating tips that can help you style up your home and make it quintessentially you.
#1 Double utility
Who said vases are only meant to put flowers on display? With a set of cube-shaped vases like these, you can store your car keys and knick-knacks, all at an arm’s length without compromising on aesthetics.
#2 Lighting is Key
Proper lighting helps create a sense of depth with the right amount of shadow play. The trick is to select a lamp that best compliments the constricted space. You can also go for candle holders to create a soothing ambience which also does wonders for tiny corners of your apartment.
#3 Colour me pastels
Light shades are always known to create the illusion of space. Beautiful pastel shade artefacts around the house not only make for a pretty treat for your eyes, but will also open up your small space and make it breathable!
#4 A Touch of Greenery
Maintaining plants in a tiny space can become a daily hassle. Go for mini succulents instead! They are pretty, easy to handle and add a beautiful touch of greenery much needed in cramped spaces.
White is the saviour you may not need, but you most certainly deserve. Filling your corners up with items that are white, help conjure up an illusion of wider spaces, something that a small room most definitely needs!
