Fun Ways To Spruce Up Your Home Decor

Fun Ways To Spruce Up Your Home Decor

***Collaborative post***

Looking to make a few changes to your home this summer? Summer is the ideal time to refresh your home – and with the warm weather and longer days comes the perfect opportunity to spruce up your living space. 

Today we want to talk about some super simple ways that you can spruce up your home decor and put those much-needed finishing touches onto your home interiors this week. 

Buy items from a set theme 

When you want to make a positive change to your home and its style, the easiest thing you can do is buy some items from the same style collection. For example, head to Target this week and look at the homeware section and pick out items that follow the same theme, color scheme, and design. By bringing multiple items of the same theme into your home you will encompass the room and elevate your design to the next level. This is such an easy way to make your home look more put together and styled without spending too much time. 

Try metal art prints 

One way to elevate your home decor this month is by bringing some brand new art to the home. But instead of going for the classic frames or canvases – why not try Chromaluxe metal prints? Metal prints are a type of artwork that can be classy and fun, and they are hung on magnets meaning less mess for you when putting them up. You can find metal prints in all sorts of styles and you can even get your own photos printed on these too. 

Paint your own picture frames 

If you want to quickly spruce up your home decor and don’t have a lot of money to work with try repainting your photo frames. Do you have a lot of wooden and plastic frames around the house that look dull and boring? No more! Order some small sample pots of paint in bright colours, and use these to brighten up your photo frames and give them a whole new lease of life. This won’t cost much at all and it will instantly lift your wall art, mantelpiece, or bookcase.

Invest in 3D wall art 

One thing you can consider if you have a home that is large in size is a 3D piece of wall art such as a metal or wooden display. There are some stunning 3D pieces out there to choose from and you can create a fun and unique feature in your home in no time at all. It will be a good way to fill a blank wall space and bring some much-needed colour and texture to your home. 

Go bigger 

Go big or go home. Do you have a lot of small ornaments and features on your shelves right now? Get rid of them. Smaller items can clog up a space and make it look cluttered. Instead, choose 3-5 bigger ornaments or features and fill your shelves with these instead. It will not only look more clean and put together but it will be much easier to clean!

5 Simple Touches to Spruce Up Your Bathroom

5 Simple Touches to Spruce Up Your Bathroom

***Collaborative post***

If your bathroom is in need of a little TLC, there are plenty of upgrades you can make without an entire remodelling. A few small changes will make all the difference, and you can transform your bathroom into a haven of tranquility. Bring the spa home with essential oils, or add a touch of greenery. Invest in a few new accessories to brighten up the place, and ditch your dull old mats and towels. Here are five simple touches to spruce up your bathroom.

Refresh your accessories

Finally get rid of your old bath mat, shower curtain, and other accessories and replace them with something a little more luxurious. Check out this gorgeous striped mat for a bathroom, for example. You’ll be surprised how much difference new furnishings can make. These types of accessories won’t break the bank, but they’ll help to add both comfort and elegance.

A touch of greenery

Plants create a calming atmosphere and look lovely in the bathroom. You need to be careful to choose the ones that will thrive in the environment, however. Some plants can wilt in the steamy atmosphere if not. Here are the best houseplants for your bathroom. If you haven’t got much room in your bathroom, try using the vertical space instead. Put up shelves to host plants, or you could even hang planters directly on the wall.

Essential oils and aromatherapy

Create a sensory space with essential oils and aromatherapy. The essential oils that work best in a bathroom can include lemon, eucalyptus, tea tree, thyme, and peppermint. These will add a light, clean scent. There are several ways to use essential oils in the bathroom. You could get a diffuser or a candle, or add the oils to your bath. Close your eyes and it’ll be like having a fancy spa in your own home.

Feature wall

Rather than replacing the entire tiling or redecorating completely, you could create a feature wall. Fill an unused section of the wall with some handcrafted tiles. If you’re only updating a small section, you can opt for something a little more high-end. Treat yourself to designer tiling, or an original mosaic. There are also plenty of budget options too for building a stylish feature wall. Here are some of the home decor trends this year to give you inspiration. Choose the look that best suits your unique taste and personality.

Original artwork

Artwork also makes a great feature, and you won’t have to do any retiling. You could look online for some quirky bathroom wall art, or research a local artist. If you’re the artistic type, you could even make something yourself. It’s up to you what kind of look you want to create. You could go for something abstract and colourful, or humour. In the bathroom, anything goes, and it’s nice to have artwork to look at. It helps to create a relaxing atmosphere and brightens your mood. With a few fun additions, you can freshen up your bathroom this year.
