A home is a place where we all shun the cares of the world and relax with family and friends. So before applying any of your decorating ideas, make a plan for the same and allocate a budget so that you do not end up spending more. Planning will help you focus on the areas that need a makeover. Without prior planning, you will not be able to execute such a herculean task.

After reviewing the trivial loopholes of your home, now it is time to work on them. Here rae a few ideas that will work wonders if executed properly.

1. The rooms which get minimal or no sunlight and are dark, must be lightened up with light-colored walls. Put some plants and transparent curtains so that the room looks more spacious. You can also install blinds instead of shades on your windows to brighten the room.

2. If the living room is small, you must use pale colors on the walls, and put less furniture. Do not buy curtains, bedspreads and table clothes which have busy patterns, as it will make the room look smaller.

3. If your room is cramped and boxy, you must create a focal point in the room. You can also use different color on one of the four walls.

4. Use up-tilting lamps, if your ceilings are quite low. Low to ground sofas and bedding are preferable in low ceilings homes.

5. Single room living spaces can also be modified. You can use large pieces of furniture that appear to “section off” one area from the next.
