The hardest part can be deciding how to begin. Experts recommend
keeping a file of eye-catching ideas clipped from magazines.
Once you have some ideas, experts stress the importance of
bringing in your own personality. Don't be afraid to trust
your likes and dislikes because that's the key. Don't be afraid
to be yourself in choosing furnishing, style, colour and accessories.
And remember that it can be an ongoing project that doesn't
have to be tackled all at once. If you let the room develop

You can renovate your room by using your old furnitures but
give them a new look. Revive an old sofa or chair with fabric
slipcovers or change the cushion covers. This will give you
the added advantage of mixing and matching the interiors with
the change in season and style. The most important thing to
remember is loads of creativity and a willingness to experiment
Here are a few tips for decorating your house without being worried about the budget
1. Look around you and analyze
what changes you require to have in the house and what is
available to you. If you just want to change the old look
of your living room or hall then you need not worry much.
Just shift your furnitures and change the style and appearance.
Bring in minor changes in the decorative pieces hanging on
the wall or kept on the side tables. Change the sofa covers
and cushion covers and there you go…your room will look new
2. If you are a person who likes
to be near Mother Nature…you can decorate your home or living
room with potted plants. Plants placed in nice pots and lit
from beneath so the light can bounce up off the leaves gives
the room a very energetic look.
3. In the last decade candles
have become a fashionable part of our home décor. Today candles
are sold in department stores, boutiques and in supermarkets,
but not all candles are the same. The quality of the candle,
the burn time, and the lasting fragrance are important when
looking for a candle to decorate your home that will illuminate
and scent your surroundings.
4. When redesigning your kitchen
do not throw away the old furnitures Creative reuse of shelves,
benches, tables, dressers, cabinets and various other used
materials can give your kitchen a totally new look. Many interior
designers encourage simple and attractive kitchens that include
components that are intended to show their age. The scratches
and scars are called patina, and are valued as part of the
charm. Some companies even artificially "distress" new pieces
to make them appear old and worn. So think twice before you
throw away that old piece of furniture. It could easily bring
your kitchen a new look.
5. You can decorate your house
by using beautiful, artificial flowers/plants, which are available
at all home stores. They look real and are easy to maintain.
However if you want to decorate your house with real flowers
then nothing like it.
6. You can also use mirrors to
decorate your room. Use mirrors where you can as they look
beautiful and give a feeling of added space.
