Ten Home Decorating Ideas To Quickly Rejuvinate Any Room


Not all home decorating ideas require a heavy investment of time and money. If you’re looking for a few affordable home interior decorating ideas to rejuvenate a room over a weekend, try these ten:


  • Rearrange The Furniture

    Pull your furniture away from the walls. Try positioning it at intriguing angles. For example, a sofa arranged diagonally across a narrow living room will make the room look wider.

  • Paint A Wall

    Paint one wall your favorite color and make it the focal point. Hang interesting art on that wall and move a nice piece of furniture there. (Note: Make sure that the color is one that is shared with several other objects and fabrics in the room.)

  • Bring In Plants

    Greenery always adds a breath of fresh air to a room. If you don’t have a green thumb, try silk plants and trees. The quality has gotten so good that its hard to distinguish them from the real thing. Personally, I love to grow and nuture indoor plants.

  • Lay An Area Rug

    An area rug is a wonderful way of defining a conversation area. Try one that complements the room. Lay it at an angle beneath your coffee table.

  • Hang Pictures or Mirror

    Hang pictures or art prints that reflect your personality. Try frames that are more ornate. When hanging a mirror, try and position it so that it reflects and nice view or an interesting architectural element.

  • Group Figurines

    Pull out your favorite collectibles. Show off your personality. Find a display area and group related objects together, in sets of three or five. Try and vary the shapes.

  • Add Decorative Pillows

    The good news about decorative pillows is that they are an easy way to add textures and patterns to a room. Still better, they can be changed to jazz up a sofa or chair before your room is ready for a major makeover.

  • Replace Lamps

    Lamps are probably the one thing in your home that will give others a clue that your room is outdated. Seek out new and fresh lamps that make a statement.

  • Add A Throw Or Afghan

    Similar to decorative pillows, throws and afghans add texture to your furniture. They come in all kinds of natural and man made fabrics. Find a pattern and style that you like.

  • Eliminate Clutter

Clutter has a way of eliminating the desired mood and effect of any room. Find storage spaces for papers, toys, and other items that take from the personality of a room.
