Simple Decor Hacks that Will Improve Your Homes in an Instant

“If you buy stuff you love, regardless of era or price, your home will be a true reflection of you.” –Sarah Norwood (homeowner)

Home decor has always been an integral factor of a home’s character.
Moreover, it is an avenue for homeowners to showcase their creative skills throughout the myriad of ways they personalize their homes to suit their taste and preferences. Regardless of where you live—whether that may be in a lush and sophisticated makati condo or a humble and unassuming flat, the thirst and yearning to customize a home are truly there. After all, there is a fervent desire in all of us to leave traces of who we are in places we have been, and this is especially true for our homes—which in more ways than one, is considered our sanctuary.

Unfortunately, home improvement is mostly associated with exorbitant expenses coupled with time-consuming home project endeavors. With this in consideration, so many homeowners would be rather turned off at the prospect of enhancing their homes—even if it meant having a home with an upgraded aesthetic appeal as a result. Fortunately, not all home improvements have to be expensive nor taxing to undertake. However, it does require a bit of time on your part to pull off.
Here are some of the home decor projects you can do without having to worry about spending a lot:

1.) Use a box to hide cords and power bars

Power cords, power bars and the like only add to the overall clutter of your home. If they are not concealed from view, they can be quite an eyesore. Do not let this detract from what would have otherwise been a beautiful and stylish living room. In this regard, use a decorative storage box which you can fashion yourself from old shoeboxes and the like and hide these unattractive electronic gadgets from the view of your guests.

2.) Dress up your headboard

Your headboard contributes to the overall beauty of a bedroom—so much so that it can function as the room’s focal point. If your current headboard looks dated or perhaps a little old and worn, there is no compelling reason for you to buy a new one. You do not even need to have it replaced or reupholstered just to give your bedrooms an update. However, you do need to drape a large piece of fabric which can be in the form of a thin blanket or a large scarf over that headboard and instantly transform the look of your bedroom.

 

3.) Update walls with a fresh coat of paint

More often than not, all your home really needs is a new coat of paint. You will be amazed at the wonders of what painting can do as it can drastically enhance and change up a room looks. Dated kitchens can instantly be updated by utilizing a visually appealing geometric pattern. To achieve this, simply use some masking tape to create your very own personalized design. From there, make sure to choose bold and vibrant colors to really make your backsplash come to life.

4.) Hang a mirror with rope

If you wish to give your bathrooms a nautical or rustic vibe, hang your typical wall mirror by using some thick rope. To attach the rope to the mirror, use large eye hooks on both sides of the mirror. From there, you can then hang your mirror—just make sure that the hanging hook you use is strong and sturdy enough to hold your mirror’s weight in place.

5.) Use old door knobs for hanging towels

Give your entry hallways a bit of a rustic and unique touch by utilizing old doorknobs as hangers for towels, hats and the like. Not only is the DIY hack visually pretty and attractive, but it is incredibly practical as well. If you have any old door knobs lying around the house that have that antique and Victorian feel, use those. However, you can also find old door knobs for sale in flea markets and garage sales. While they would make unorthodox coat and towel hooks, they will surely be an interesting conversation piece.
