    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:

    pots

    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:

    vases for 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.

  • EASY RECYCLABLE DIY HOME DECOR CRAFTS

    Posted on by Halo Themes

    DIY Home decor

    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
    • Newspaper
    • Syringe
    • Bowls

     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.

    Recycled bottles

    Soak the bottles in warm soapy water and give them a good wash. Remove all the labels and stickers that are on the bottle.

    diy projects

    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.

    diy crafts

    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.

    recycling old bottles

    Once the bottles have all been painted in the same or assorted colours according to your preference, they can be used as vases.

    DIY recycled home decor

    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.
