A smart strategy to design your home can prove to be extremely beneficial to you in the long run. Here's how we can help you get started-
Running out of storage space in cupboards? Use the empty spaces on the walls instead! A small shelf built on walls can prove to be very helpful in storing the lighter home decor accents. You could even make pots and jars stand on shelves against walls in order to give a quirky countryside feel to your homes.
These rolling shelves maximize spaces and are one of the easiest ways to store away upholstery. Rolling shelves under beds are a great storage place for towels, linens and other delicate material.
Trunks and Boxes
The classic way to store things is to put them away in boxes. The boxes can also be used as side tables and coffee tables to give a rustic look to the interiors. Wooden boxes also lend an elegant, royal charm to your homes.
Maximise your bookshelf space by stacking your books vertically. If you're feeling a little adventurous, you could also use a step ladder as a make-shift bookshelf! Categorize your books by color for better organization.
It's important to utilize the floor space effectively. Install shelves at the base of a closet or even in the small space between the door and the bed and you'll never have to rifle through items strewn across the floor.
Home decor can be made both appealing and functional. Please feel free to share with us tips on de-cluttering and organizing homes. We'd be glad to hear what you have to say!
With Christmas round the corner, it's time to start thinking about the decorations. And this year it goes much beyond the traditional lights and Christmas Tree. Get your homes Christmas ready with the following tips-
Light it Up!
Lights during the festive season are a no-brainer; spruce it up with colored lights and funky lampshades. To give it a traditional appeal, stick to red, green and white lights for the perfect Christmas effect. Fairy lights hung on trees and around windows will give a delicate and feminine touch to the exteriors.
Enamel pots offer rustic style and sophistication. They also add a pop of color to your exteriors. Add in drama to your gardens. Switch over from flower beds and small pots to large terra cotta ones. Place them in an area you want attention drawn to- maybe the entrance or the side-walk.
Chairs and Benches
Add a dash of color to your gardens and outdoor spaces with vibrantly colored chairs and benches. There is no fixed rule when it comes to choosing a color- go with the one you’re comfortable with. If you're not feeling too adventurous, you could always start with a white bench and throw in printed cushions. The warm sun streaming through the window, the rustic charm of some vintage furniture and traditional upholstery- create your own cheerful nook in your gardens.
Dress up your Porch!
Outdoor decorations cannot be complete without Santa Claus! You could purchase a light up Santa, or simply have small, stuffed Santas all over the porch. If your home is a two-storey you can have Santa positioned to make it look like he’s climbing up on his way to the chimney! Wreaths are another way of decorating the front porch, especially the door.
Lead Them On!
To keep it traditional, line the walkway from your gates till the front door with miniature Christmas trees. Add some fairy lights to these trees and you could have the perfect Christmas welcome.
