Being a homeowner can be stressful at times, but one of the fun parts is being able to decorate your home to make it your own! From the kitchen and bedrooms to the bathroom and living area, Tundraland is here to help you express your style with some decorating tips.
Create a Gallery Wall
Sprucing up your walls doesn’t have to mean using busy wallpaper or buying a large expensive painting. Frames are highly customizable and perfect for displaying your favorite family photos, landscape shots or eccentric art prints. Create a gallery wall by combining framed photos and artwork of all different shapes and sizes to make a display that is uniquely your own.
Rummaging and thrifting may be important to you so you can save money. Luckily there are plenty of deals and steals to be had when it comes to repurposing.
» Repurpose old crates and use for seating, storage and end tables
» Repurpose glass jars and use as candle holders, vases, stylish pantry storage or mini terrariums
» Repurpose an extra unsightly dresser or filing cabinet into a book and display case
Bring Plants Indoors
Bringing greenery inside not only looks great but also can help purify your indoor air. Add potted succulents and herbs to a kitchen’s garden window, a tall ficus for an office or den, or soothing aloe vera on a bathroom shelf. Play around with pots and planters that match the style of your décor.
Nothing spruces up a neutral toned living space better than accent pillows, funky colored throw blankets or a patterned armchair. Add some pop to an otherwise boring room with patterned, textured and brightly colored fabrics.
Things to Remember
Decorating and remodeling can require a lot of time, effort and money, so be sure to do your homework before taking on big projects! Keep these helpful tips in mind:
- Clean Before You Paint: Before you throw up a first coat, make sure to thoroughly vacuum corners and use a damp rag to wipe the dust off your walls. You may not be able to see it now, but painting without cleaning can cause peeling and other detrimental effects later on.
- Measure Before You Buy or Nail: Don’t purchase that eight-person sectional without taking detailed measurements of your living room. Similarly, plan out your wall décor decisions before you hammer in any nails to avoid mismeasurements or extra nail holes.
- Have a Plan and a Budget: Heading to the store with nothing particular in mind is a recipe for disaster. Sit down and make a list of needs and wants for each room including your style preferences and color palettes. With clear direction and a price limit, your shopping and decorating experience will be a lot less frustrating.
