New Year New Life! Focusing on home decoration (which is our thing), after the new year it’s time to make a clean slate to finally make our house look different and better. How many renovations await your house in 2022? Here is a collection of 8 ideas that work and that are great! they are free. So if your dream was to reform your house cheaply, go looking for another one because this one is going to come true…
Decorate your home in 2022 with 10 tricks that are free!
1. Remove here and put there
Because the January sales are phenomenal but with so much gift and feast we are not caught with the budget in shape. Check the accessories you have around the house and make changes.
For example: the cushions in the living room for the ones on your bed, or the lamp in your bedroom for the ones in the living room. This also works for the blankets on the sofa or the plaid that you now have at the foot of the bed.
That clock in the kitchen that nobody looks at, maybe it looked beautiful in the living room (or the other way around). Invent a destination for the things you already have and let it surprise you with its new location.
Remember that there are many things that cost nothing and that favor the aesthetics of your home: things that are free and that will make your home look bigger and better.
2. Aesthetic order
If you have a large collection of books or CDs or movies at home, it’s time to put some art into the composition.
You can order the books by color, to achieve the visual impact you are looking for, or even easier if this color doesn’t suit you. Turn them over and put them all with the spine facing inside the shelf !
This last option is not the most practical in the world, but when aesthetically the books are very different, it works!
Sometimes it is a bit difficult for us to find the ideal way in which to display the things we want, so I leave you an IKEA video that can surely help you to learn how to decorate your shelves with more style in one step not a single euro). Is easier than it looks like!
3. Free up space
In all the rooms you surely have something to eliminate The bigger the better!
It is a bit the case of those rooms with 6 dining chairs that are never used. Or that pouf that is always in the middle and is useless.
Sell, give away, donate, whatever as long as it is not in the way. You’ll see it clears when you remove it!
In the children’s room it costs a little more but look at the effect that can be achieved if they decide to remove all those toys that they no longer use. Dare to make a composition with painted fruit boxes (which if your fruit bowl gives them to you are free) and they give us a space in which to store with great style.
And if you are worried about what to do with what you are putting away, remember these 5 things you can do with the furniture that you no longer want at home.
4. Change location
If you work in a tiny office, why not turn that space into a dressing room and start working in the living room. It is just an example, but it can serve as a reference to know what we are talking about. If you live in a one-room apartment, it’s more complicated, but if you have more than one, you already have room to start moving rooms and uses as you please.
5. Goodbye heavy curtains
Okay, in that room that borders a dark patio or some curious neighbors, we can’t do it. But if we are lucky enough to have windows that face the outside and that are nourished by natural light at home, let’s remove the curtains (better if it is definitely), and let the sunlight flood everything.
It will seem silly to you but it is a very simple change with a more than surprising (and instant) result.
6. Get creative with decoration
Use old leather belts to make new hangers, recycle jeans to decorate the walls, or line cushions. What matters is that you be creative.
A simple and effective way to achieve this is to remove all objects on a table and classify only those who really want and like, from there, redistributes thinking of colors, balancing heights, adding flowers and plants…
Look at the example of photography and you will see that it is not so difficult ???
7. Remove the upper cabinets from your kitchen
We have already talked to you other times about the possibilities of reform without works in the kitchen. Great results can be achieved just by removing the top furniture or (if you lack room to store) by removing the doors.
Do you think you would dare to try? If you do, be prepared because a lot of junk that you did not expect will appear and that if you throw them away or give them away you will not miss them… Halfway there would be those who only remove the doors leaving the shelves open. It is another even faster option with which to achieve a good result and more order at home by doing the right thing.
8. Naturally free
It is that you bring a little rosemary, lavender or even eucalyptus branches from a walk in the country. Recycle some jars of yogurt or glass juice, decorate with a little string and distribute the carts with all those natural gifts that you have brought from the field. It’s fantastic and also free!
9. The decorated ribbon works miracles
This option does not work if you have to buy it (although I already tell you that it is very cheap). If you want to give a piece of furniture a new look and don’t want to spend too much money, use decorated tape. With it you can get an instant and reversible look change in case one day you decide to change your mind again.
10. Clean the environment
And we are not referring only to the dust, but to all those decorative elements that you no longer like because they have gone out of style and simply annoy your eyes, and enjoy a practically new home with only the things you need and make you happy.. Do you know that less is more? Well that!
And you, have you started the year wanting to turn the house upside down? Did you like our proposals? I would love to hear what you think if you leave us a comment.
