10 Quick and Easy Décor Updates for Your Space

May 18, 2018

Tired of your drab looking apartment? Decorating your space does not have to be the stress-fest people think it is. Of course, your current predicament will influence how easy or difficult your decorating endeavor will be. For example, if you are starting with a blank canvas or even a relatively clean slate (as with most houses found on online ads, such as on PropertyGuru Singapore , you might have an easier time making your home look cohesive. However, if you are looking at redecorating your already-furnished home, it can be difficult to find the balance between making the most impact and not wasting the décor pieces you already have.

Here are 10 quick and easy home décor updates that are sure to enliven your home and prove that decorating your home doesn’t have to be difficult! These steps will take your space from spartan to special in next to no time at all.

1. Create a scene

Create a scene (the good way) in your home with non-permanent decoration methods such as wall stickers and decals. They are an easy way of adding an instant oomph to your space. Although many people think they might seem juvenile and more suited to a kid’s room, they are actually quite handy in many situations. They are easy to install yourself and easy to remove when they no longer pique your fancy. Consider nature-inspired designs for your bedroom or bathroom, or even graphic and geometric designs for kitchens and hallways.

2. It’s cover-up time
Upholstery, when old and worn, can give your space a tired and dated look. An easy way to solve this is by reupholstering your pieces. This can be a smart way to update dated looking textiles, while still preserving the furniture piece. If your upholstery still looks clean, and you just want to spice it up a bit, slip on a set of loose covers. You can give your tired looking upholstery a new lease on life.

3. Add instant storage
Incorporating a new set of freestanding shelves is an easy way of spicing up your space, and it provides practical storage solutions to boot. It can be perfect for a living room, bedroom, or even a hallway. What’s more, it’s easy to move around from room-to-room, or even from house-to-house if you are not thinking of staying put too long. This is a much better alternative to permanent shelves drilled to your walls.

4. Play with pattern
Although a fresh coat of paint is a good way to spice up any room, sometimes, single-color walls can start to look a bit too monotonous. You can consider bringing your walls to life with stencils. This is a smart and easy method of adding some pattern to your walls. You can grab a patterned roller and roll the pattern down the whole of your walls, or even as a border around your wall edges. This gives a subtle yet elegant transformative effect on your space.

5. Go graphic
Rather than redecorating a whole room, why don’t you think about adding some graphic color to your space? You can add some interest by painting horizontal or vertical lines, or even color blocks onto your walls. All you need for a successful graphic reform is a spirit level and some non-bleed masking tape (or painter’s tape) to get the lines perfectly symmetrical.

6. Accessorize with art
Artwork is a great way of injecting some character and personality into a space. Consider hanging a bold single painting, a group of smaller prints, or even some framed family photographs. You can even go all out and dedicate a whole wall to artwork as the focal point of your room. Bear in mind that art does not have to be expensive. Forget about the Monets and Van Goghs. Rather, look out for up-and-coming artists as well as online galleries. This is a good way to get your hands on some one-of-a-kind prints.

7. Co-ordinate
One way to easily tie up your space and put together a new room scheme is to make sure everything co-ordinates. You can source everything from one place to ensure everything is going to all work together. Otherwise, you can find pieces here and there and tie them together with a unifying color scheme or pattern.

8. Invest in lighting
Changing up your lighting can instantly transform the ambience of your space. Sometimes, a change in lightbulbs, for example from a cool to warm tone, can take your space from cold and unwelcoming to warm and cosy. Even something as simple as replacing a lamp shade can make a bold and brighter statement. Steer clear of expensive endeavors such as overhead chandeliers and pendants. Rather, go for easy to install table and floor lamps to light up any dark corners.

9. Dining room chic
Lay down a new brightly patterned table cloth over your old dining table for an instant pop of vibrance. You can even go one step further and paint the wall in your dining area a rich color to match. 

10. Lay down a rug
Cover up scuffed wooden flooring or worn carpets with a colorful rug or runner. Horizontal stripes work perfectly for narrow hallways. You can also consider investing in a large oriental rug for your living room. Another way is to cover up large areas of flooring with a few different smaller rugs for a mix and match patchwork effect.
