Cost Effective Decoration Ideas

Use Canvases

Blank walls don’t look good. You can brighten them by hanging beautiful canvases. Make sure that the wall gets covered with the canvases.

Use Side Tables

You can use modular storage units for making stepped-side tables for lighting and display. You can use miniature still life or put reading stuff based on your choice.

Opt for Hang Plates

For a beautiful wall arrangement, we suggest that you go for plates of different colors. You can use different hues, textures and sizes. In the center, you can place a dramatic unit. It will look amazing.

Use Wicker

You can go for cheap wicker and it will still change the environment in each room. If you have chairs, put them in a corner or near other upholstered units.

Create Your Own Art

You can make your own art easily. Even if you use photocopied art, it will look great when floating amidst a pair of glass. In this case, the wall color will look great through the glass and, which will look like a custom mat.

Use Mitten

If you are looking for a different idea, you can opt for mitten with no mates. For the frame, use cut felt for the purpose of fitting, and then make use of craft glue for sticking the felt. Once centered, you should let it sit for 12 hours to dry.

Go Natural

For kitchen, you can choose shells as well as other beach stuff. This will create a relaxed yet rustic type of display.

Use Lampshade

You can make the lampshade more interesting with the help of glue, ribbon and a good eye chart. If you don’t have one, you can download and print one.

Make a Headboard

This is a simple point project. All you have to do is put together a trompe. With a bit of search online, you can also make your own headboard.

Use Photos

You can take a closer look at your album in order to choose the best shots. Once you have chosen a few photos, you can place each photo in similar frames. Then you can hang them one by one in a long line or tight grid. It’s even better if you use a geometric arrangement.

Show Your Style

You can define a space. For instance, you can use a mirror for light and drama. All you have to do is be a bit creative.

Modern Architecture

  1. Open Concept Living Spaces
  2. Eat-In Kitchens
  3. Metals and Wood Stairs
  4. Industrial Accent Materials

Nothing says modern like open concept living spaces. One of the best ways to change a home’s feel is to open up the living, dining and kitchen into one large living space. Not only is this style in demand, but it also is very functional. The idea of open concept living areas gives the home a social environment.

Eat-in kitchens are a must, as it works directly with the open concept living space. It is a functional design that allows social interaction between the kitchen and the table. It is perfect for entertaining and if you have children it lets you keep an eye on them while you cook, watch the game, or clean up.

Metal and wood staircases not only give a very modern look but they are also highly functional. They are much safer than wood stairs and they allow for a variety of accent materials such as wood, glass or stone stair treads. Modern styles work well with high end accents and they give the home an elegant feel. Metal stairs can be used indoors and outdoors. One signature look of the modern home is the clean lines of metal handrails that are used on balconies and stars.

The most defining feature of modern style home is the simple use of industrial materials such as stone, concrete, steel and glass. Many modern architects like to use new materials that are strong and last long. Using clean simple lines with different materials give this style it’s clean look. Some accent features that are common in many home renovations are using stone tile for walls, thick glass for doors/ balcony handrails, and even reclaimed materials such as wood from old barns and buildings. Even industrial style barn doors on a open track are used.

About Decorating Old Windows

  • Consider using pictures on the panels. You can use small picture frames all around the window frame to display family photographs beautifully.
  • Weaving faux foliage along the frame will give your room a natural green appearance. Find some kind of green leafy foliage such as grapevine or ivy that could stick to the frame. The green leaves will create relaxed ambience in the room.
  • You can simply renovate the window frame. If you have a wooden frame, then sand it and give a fresh splash of varnish. This quick renovation will give the wooden frame a renewed look and lovely glossy finish that will look good as new.
  • Hanging small vases and potted plants creates more space around the house. The window frame is also a great place to start a herb garden. Herbs don’t require a lot of space so using the window frame is perfect for this project. Plus the greenery will create a fresh natural look.
  • Installing a black board along the frame is a creative way to leave notes or draw patterns. You can draw chalk floral patterns and a month later you could draw geometric patterns. Whatever you fancy. Or if this window is in the kitchen you could list of chores or things to do. Not only is it a neater list but it also decorates the window.
  • A window sill works the best as a shelf for the inside of your house. You can place a pretty ornament at your window but you will also have a miniature shelf to store other decorations that don’t have a place.
  • A unique key hanger is another item you could turn the frame into. This might require a bit more handy work but the results will look stunning and unique.
  • Lastly, you could create a pot rack out of this window frame. Glue some hooks onto the wood and let it dry. After it is completely dry you can start saving space in your drawers by hanging up those pots. If you want to change the colour of the frame, make sure you paint it before you stick the hooks.
