Easy Home Improvement Ideas

When you want to change the decor of your home, there are some easy home improvement ideas that can get you started on the right track by going away from the old room decor and adding to it a new visual impact in style and functionality. You don’t have to buy expensive items in order to change the look of your rooms. Rearranging the furniture and adding a few touches here and there will do wonders to the interior design and decorating of your home!

When it comes to the bedroom, you can replace the old curtains and draperies and add new ones with fresh colors instead. Use a huge floral pattern or mosaic theme. If you have extra curtain material as left over, you can add the extra piece to your bed headboard for matching decor. Add some area rugs on the floor, apparently randomly scattered around, however make sure that the colors match those of the curtain and headboard. Also any night reading lamps you have should have the lampshade matching in style with the existing room ambient.

As for the living room, use bright colors on your walls and ceiling and change the ceiling lamp with a modern chandelier instead that has sparkling crystals for a great effect. Also use highlighter illumination with various table lamps or floor lamps that cast a very narrow and focused lighting on the very spot you want to put the emphasis on.

Task lighting using hanging pendants is a great way to add to the ambient and functionality of any kitchen. You can use it either above the sink or on the kitchen island. Some people like to use track lighting coming from the ceiling and this gives also great results as long as you change the direction of the lighting curve.

There are many great ideas that you can use to improve your home decor without spending a mini fortune on it. All you need is use your creativity and imagination and it’s OK to take a peek at the various interior decorating magazines that can give you wonderful ideas and spark your imagination with even better options that you haven’t thought of before.
