Sometimes you look around your home and just crave some kind of an aesthetic change. But finding the money, energy and time to do a full-scale overhaul? That’s a different story altogether. If you need a design pick-me-up, try these small changes that still manage to pack a punch:
Swap some of your wall art for a mirror
Mirrors are great for reflecting light and making small spaces seem larger. They’re also a great minimalist touch and give the eye a break in a room where wall art is plentiful. You’d be surprised how much impact a full-length mirror can make.
Embrace plants, especially big ones
Sometimes all you need to give your space a fresh feel is a bit of greenery. A large, potted plant can give the space a lush and dramatic touch. Worried about keeping plants alive? Try a cactus or some succulents, both of which can subsist on very little water.
Try a rug in an unexpected room
Rugs are another way to change up a space. They add texture and can help define spaces. Try a small, luxuriously textured one in the bathroom or a larger, colourful one by the bed.
Changing up your home’s look doesn’t always mean large-scale projects. Sometimes it’s just about a few tweaks here and there to change your perspective.
