“Home is where the heart is” – So let’s make it something special and warm with reclaimed wood furniture!
In the 21st techno-centric century, people are slowly starting to take a step back and realising that creating a home where they can relax and take their minds away from the hectic nature of working life is very important. Your home is where you want to escape to, a place to entertain your dearest friends and somewhere to create a life and a family.
So how can you spice up a boring space with a single item? It’s actually very simple. Many interior designers advise individuals to declutter the living space as this reflects on how you live your life as well. Here are a few easy and not too extravagant ways to brighten up your home with some key decorative pieces.
We’ll start with the living room as this is where you want to spend the most amount of your time unwinding after a long day at work. If you have a fireplace in your living room, this can be a great place to create a focal point. In itself, a fireplace draws your attention to it. Adding simple touches like a large mirror above it can help to make the room look larger along with creating a tasteful central piece for the room. For people that don’t have a fireplace, a tall floor standing lamp can help to soften the lighting in the room and create a relaxing ambience. It doesn’t have to be anything expensive, but decorative lighting has been used for centuries to help features of a space stand out.
The bedroom is your sanctuary. We want to keep it as simple as possible here and accentuate some parts of the room. It doesn’t take much to create an eye-catching piece for the bedroom. Having a simple and inexpensive bed frame can be useful at times and gives you the opportunity to invest in a stand out headboard. A padded headboard covered with a bright or a monochrome pattern can help to lift the room and give you a colour scheme to work with.
Now onto the dining room where those all-important family meals take place. The dining room should become somewhere you can sit with your friends and family, over a nice dinner and drinks and completely relax. The best way to create a stand out dining room is to buy that a great quality, reclaimed wood furniture, and make it one to leave an impression on your guests. As design trends are evolving now to incorporate the rustic and vintage look, a reclaimed wood dining table looks effortlessly classy and each one is unique. Having that special item in your home can add a level of sophistication without much effort.
As you can see, such everyday items can easily become the focal pieces in your home by just spending a little bit of time picking the correct ones. The effort you put into furnishing and decorating your home doesn’t have to be expensive and time consuming to make an impact.
