8 Simple Additions That Will Brighten Your Home Decor

8 Simple Additions That Will Brighten Your Home Decor

Is your home decor boring and dull? Do you think it needs brightening up, but aren’t sure what to do? This post is designed especially for you! You don’t need to add anything too complicated to brighten up your house. In fact, these 8 simple additions should do nicely:

 

Flowers

Flowers always brighten up the inside of a home. Even plain, green plants can help add life and colour to a room. Keep plants in as many rooms as you like, but beware of pets getting to them. Cats and dogs like to mess with plants, and some may be toxic to them. This is why it’s important you do your research. You can also plant flowers outside to make your garden a little brighter. Look for low maintenance plants if you aren’t confident in your gardening skills.

A Feature Rug

If you have a wooden floor, a feature rug could be just the thing you need to brighten the home decor. A caucasian carpet, for example, has plenty of colours and pattern to brighten the room. You wouldn’t believe the difference a rug can make!

A Feature Wall

Feature walls should be included in every home, and quite frankly, I don’t understand why they aren’t. You can make them as subtle or as stand out as you like, with whatever colours, patterns, and features you feel necessary. This is one of the most fun elements about brighten up the home decor - you get to be creative!

Wall Art

Wall art is easy to apply and can give a room a little bit of much needed character. You can go for a quote, a picture, or even a custom piece if you have something unique in mind. It’ll look as if it’s been professionally painted on when you’re finished!

Candles

Candles brighten up a room in more ways than one. Not only will your home smell beautiful, the colours of the candles will add life. When they’re lit, they’ll certainly brighten up the place too! You can find lots of other suitable accessories too.

Sheer Curtains

Sheer curtains may not be bright in colour, but they’ll help let in more natural light during the day. This always makes a home seem happier and brighter. Nobody likes a dark, depressing home. Get those sheer curtains and let in the light!

Cool Cushions

There’s no need to buy a new sofa: invest in new, cool cushions to brighten the place up and add interest. Don’t match your cushions. I repeat: DON’T match them. How boring would that be? Buy mixed cushions to create a kind of, ‘I just threw this together’ effect. You’ll love the way it makes your sofa stand out!

New Light Shades

Look at your light shades. Are they dusty? Tired? Do they affect the way the light spreads around the room? If you answered yes, you need new ones. Choose light shades that let in plenty of light, and look great when installed.
