Having spent months indoors, many of us have been getting creative and finding projects to do within the home. From Spring cleaning to painting, to working out at home, and improving our cooking skills there’s probably nothing we haven’t tried. Staying indoors is the best way to stay safe during the global pandemic, but the social beings that we are, it hasn’t been an easy ride. There are a limited number of things you can do indoors and life surely does become mundane.
It also isn’t easy staying indoors and being surrounded by the same environment and scenery and everything appears to become dull. The solution? We found that changing the environment and sprucing up your space can help to change things up a bit. If you think you’d like to give it a try, we’ve rounded up a few things you can do to spruce up your space.
Get some indoor plants
If you already have plants at home, why not add some more? And if you don’t, then bringing home some indoor plants is the perfect way to add some colour to your space. Plants are also a great way to neutralise your space and create a healthy environment. Plants are also a great accessory for the home because they are known to purify the air and make breathing easier. You can also change the placement of your plants on a regular basis to change up your view.
Use wall art or stencils
An easy and cheap way to change up your room or space is by using some pretty wall art or stencils. They are an inexpensive way to rejuvenate a space and it’s so easy to do. There are a number of printable wall stencils that can be found online and downloaded and used on any wall in the house. These are particularly great if you want to redecorate a child’s space.
Spray paint your photo frames
If you do head out, get your hands on some photo frames, preferably of different heights. These are easy to find in any charity shops or even any home store. Pick up some cans of spray paint in a variety of colours. Neon is a great way to revamp the space if you’re going for a bold look. Different coloured frames will add a luxe feel to your space so why not give this option a try.
Opt for one new statement piece
You’d be surprised what a change one statement piece can make to your home. This could be a chair, a sofa, a mirror or a coffee table. Statement doesn’t necessarily mean expensive. It could be something you find on Amazon, at a charity store or even in your garage. Or it could even be a piece you already own which you could revamp with a new coat of paint, a change of colour or reupholstering.
Cushions are not only a great way to spruce up your space, but they also add that comfy factor to your home. You could opt for cushions with bold prints, colours and fabrics; whatever takes your fancy. You could even opt to make your own cushion covers with spare fabric you have lying around or fabric you could pick up at any home store.
Add a cozy rug
The great thing about adding a rug to your space is that it can add a lot of character. A rug can be moved around as per your liking whenever you feel like you want a change. There’s a variety of rugs available out there, be it plain, furry, bright or textured. If your furniture is minimalistic and subtle, then opt for a bright rug to add a pop of colour to your space. If your decor is chic and sophisticated then opt for a fur rug. Whatever your preference, we love a good old rug!
