The interiors of a house reflect the owner’s personality. A house is not just four walls, every single piece of upholstery, tapestry and furniture comes together to create ‘your’ space.

With time, you need to revamp your spaces to make them look fresh. Here’s a list of ideas that can help you make small changes in your home and they don’t burn a hole in your pocket either.

Jazz Up Your Bathroom

Ever wondered why you feel pampered at a luxury spa and not in your own bathroom? But the good news is that it does not take much to transform an otherwise utilitarian bathroom into an upscale space that looks as luxurious as the hotel spa you visited.

You can spruce up your bathroom by adding little things, such as an indoor plant, scented candles or a diffuser, bath accessories, mood lighting and quality sanitary ware.

Buy a good anti-skid shower mat that goes well with the interiors to add a touch of class. Make sure your bath basics are sparkling clean. You can also do up the walls with moisture-proof décor—you can go for funky or classy decal stickers.

Experiment with Walls

Don’t be shy to experiment with the walls. While solid colours always work well, but bolder and more creative applications, such as wall textures, wallpapers, wall decals and MDF (medium-density fibreboard) wall panels, are the flavour of the season.

Go for contemporary and modern designs like stripes or geometric shapes or tropical prints. Don’t limit it to your living rooms only. Go ahead and add a dash of drama to your bedroom as well. You can use statement mirrors in your living spaces, they look good pretty much everywhere.

Go Bold with Furnishings

One of the easiest and fuss-free ways to redo your rooms is by just changing your curtains and cushion covers.

Go bold and bright this season. Opt for solid, happy colours, such as yellow and green. Whether it is a quirky travel-inspired collection of pillow covers or a beautiful traditional chikankari bedcover, make sure you choose designs and colours that go with the overall theme. To add a touch of luxury, pick furnishings in metallic tones, such as antique gold or dull silver.

Light it Up

Place scented candles, clay lamps and update your home decor with newer, smarter lighting designs.

The right kind of lighting can completely transform your space. Lamps come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, colours and textures and they can add drama to any room. Pedestal or table, crystal or wood, choose a lamp that goes best with your home décor.
