    If you are planning to give a brand new look to those boring corners of your house, then here are some easy tricks and ideas to try that will fit your budget:-

    Renew Floor with Paint

    If you are bored starring at the plain floor in your house, you can change the floor by painting it with a light checked pattern. Now the choice of the color is very important, so if you want to give a high-end looking home, go for beige and white to warm up the walls.

    Change Your Windows

    Changing the style of the windows of your home adds beauty to the room; never leave your windows bare. May be you can paint your windows with subtle colors/bright colors, hang mini plant tubs or hang wind chimes in the windows.  

    Wall Gallery

    To brighten up that boring wall in the living space, you can install a gallery wall with pictures. You can bring all your happy memories into the photo frames with different sizes. If there are children in your home, you can also frame their art work and hang it to give a personal vibe.

    Light It Up

    Use pendant lights that cast interesting shadows or choose a pendant light or bulb of your choice and get 5 to 6 of them and group them together to create a cluster chandelier. Or you can use mason jars laying around in the kitchen into use and decorate it with lights. Or try placing a tall floor lamp in one corner of your house. These lights will add extra grandeur to the corners and will bring a life to your house.

    Lay Stair Runner

    If your home have stairs with sad colors, then its time you should give a thought of making it happy by placing stylish stair runner which is affordable to buy. Stairs are often the first thing that visitors see while entering in a home, you can make a big impact by going with striped or bold colors or neutral weave or pale pile.

    Retouch an Old Sofa

    If your living space has that old sofa lying for years why not make it new when it takes nothing but a right idea. Just add some funky new fabric to your vintage sofa and use lot of colorful cushions. You can also make the cushion covers with handwoven ‘gamusa’ which will add an ethnic vibe. 

    Kitchen Area

    When it comes to kitchen, you can go for designing stickers which are now easily available online or in the market, stickers will give a whole new look to the kitchen space also save from dust and oil. Also if you want to go little higher, you can fix glass splashback panels that are easy to fit.
