Improve Your Home's Appearance

Whether you live in a house or an apartment, deciding how to style and decorate your space can be difficult. Several moving parts make a place feel like a home, from deciding on a color scheme to knowing which furniture to buy. While famous designers have made the process a little easier by offering a handful of tips and tricks online, there are still some things you should know to design the home of your dreams.

While there are some technical elements to decorating your home without the assistance of a designer, it can be an enjoyable and inspiring experience. However, regardless of your style or taste, there are several important factors to avoid major stumbling blocks on your decorating journey. That being said, here are a few tips to help you turn your shabby home into a new and improved one:

  1. Start with your lawn.

You might think that the interior of your house is the first thing people will notice when they visit you, but that’s not true. The exterior of your home – particularly the landscaping – is the show’s star. It doesn’t take much time for bushes to become too big for the yard and for branches to spread out.

Enhancing your home’s curb appeal by taking care of dead leaves, putting down new grass or rocks, and trimming bushes will go a long way. Even if you don’t feel like doing your lawn, you can always hire a group of professionals to do it for you.

Pro-Tip: If you own a condo in Atlanta and need assistance designing and trimming your lawn, go online and type in “backyard landscaping Atlanta ga” and fix your greenery.

  1. De-clutter 

This step may appear exhausting, but trust us when we say it is well worth it. Choose a room, to begin with, and strike it with a pair of rubber gloves and a trash bag. Then, peek into hidden places you’d forgotten about, delve into cupboards you’d been putting off for years, and dive right into the heart of your unnecessary stuff and let it go.

Don’t be afraid to get rid of that gaudy yellow vase you made when you were six. If it has sentimental value, put it in a box. Be rigorous with yourself about what is genuinely emotional. Use the ‘time since last used’ rule of thumb; if it’s been three years since you used it, chances are its junk. Don’t sort piles into piles; if it’s garbage, throw it away; if it’s not, set it aside. Consider recycling unwanted items; charities are always looking for things to sell. You could also try to make a few bucks by selling your old items on eBay and seeing what happens!

  1. Master the skill of staging.

Few people get vital pieces of furniture and enough breathing room. Still, once you master the art of beautifully editing an interior, you’re on to a winner. If your new home’s armchair or coffee table looks squashed or overly large, sell it – it’s so simple to list. If you’re selling a large piece of furniture, you can list it for collection only. With so many lovely furniture pieces available in stores, you can instead invest in a single statement piece you adore. Allow your purchase to stand out by keeping the rest of the room simple and adding personal touches with carefully chosen trinkets, frames, and books.

  1. Say what you want about your home with flowers.

Please don’t wait for someone special to buy you flowers. Instead, please pick up a few cheap handfuls from a local supermarket or a flower stall and place them in your kitchen, hallway, or living room. According to studies on the benefits of flowers, their presence improves memory, increases social contact, and reduces depression. Calla lilies represent beauty, white carnations represent loveliness, and orchards represent love. Pick your flower. Scatter a few single stems from your bouquet around the house for a finishing touch.

  1. Tie your entire house together with color.

Don’t be concerned about moving into your first home with furniture from the 1960s to the present. Trying to unite through color is the simplest and most cost-effective way to solve this seemingly impossible task. For example, assume you have a sofa that shares only one thing with the rest of the items in your living room. Solution? Play up the similarity by making it the single unified wall color in your living room. If that sounds like work, look for accessories in this standard color and see how the pieces complement each other.

  1. Decorative items

Decorative items play an essential role in interior design. Brass and glass accents, in particular, add to the interior design. Lighting effects can also showcase expensive unique pieces in this case. Include antiques and illustrations in your home décor. Wooden and steel items can also be included. To illuminate, use decorative standing lamps and table lamps. Silk plants can also be planted; they are attractive, cheap, and long-lasting. Accessorizing your home or its parts is simple when working with a theme. It gives the room a more cohesive appearance while saving you money by only purchasing what is necessary.

  1. Decorate the front door. 

Wreaths aren’t just for the holidays. Wreaths are available all year and add an extra dose of gorgeousness to your front door. Look for wreaths made from preserved or dried florals and greens, or buy one made from faux plants to make your life easier. Avoid using seasonal elements to date the wreath and make it look out of place. Instead, choose something simple that will add sophistication throughout the season.

  1. Include a gallery wall in your home

Add a gallery wall to your home to make it appear designed. This graceful yet trendy concept has indeed taken over the design world. There are numerous options for finding content for your gallery wall, ranging from Etsy to vintage shops. While a classic and timeless look with vintage photos and paintings is lovely, you can also opt for a more modern style with realistic photography and abstract art.


By following these tips, you should be able to give yourself a new humble abode with gorgeous looks. While you are it, remember that your home should be a relaxing and comforting environment for you and everyone else to be in. Also, it doesn’t have to be packed with items; after all, simplistic homes are known for making a welcoming impact. So put on a CD, invite a few friends, and enjoy your living space.
