Cheap and Easy Ways To Spice Up Your Floor Space
Floors. It’s no doubt they’re one of the most important features of your house. Not only in a practical sense, but in a decorative sense. Yet, floors can often be forgotten when restyling or redecorating. Of course, some may choose their perfect flooring when they renovate but even then there is more that can be done to ensure your floors become the highlight of your house. Maybe you have excess space, or maybe you’re looking for something to make your house more homey. Have a look at some of the cheap and easy ways spruce up your floor space to get some inspiration.
Everyone loves flowers, so why not add a vase to a free space to add a little bit of brightness to your day. The larger the vase, the better as it will highlight the surrounding area. For this reason, ensure you place it in an area that is not overcrowded with furniture or objects to get the best out of your flooring. For longevity, you may want to purchase artificial flowers. Or you may prefer the smell of fresh flowers. It’s up to you to be creative and choose the style that suits you best.
When it comes to redecorating our floor space, rugs and mats are one of the first things many think of. A feature rug can make a house feel like home, warm and safe. A shaggy rug on your flooring can warm us up in winter just as quickly as we can put it away to cool us down in the summer. Rugs can be swapped and changed to ensure you are never restricted to just the one style. If matched to the style of a room, it can add an element to your house that may be lacking otherwise.
This is a new trend, and quite a controversial one. Done right it can be a huge success, done wrong may result in an even bigger urge to redecorate your floor space. Painting your bamboo flooring, whether it be like in the featured photo, or maybe a bright pattern can be quite a daunting idea for most people. But if you’ve got a bit of the creative flair in you, patterned or decorative floorboards can add a lot of individuality to your home. Worried about your artistic skills? You could always make it a collaborative experience
with some friends, or even hire an artist to make your dreams come alive.
Wine Racks are not only a way to show off your wine knowledge, but can also double as a decorative feature. If you’re not a big wine drinker, buy some old milk bottles and fill them up with decorative shells, beads or other pretties to make them more colourful and stand out in your home. If you’ve got kids you can substitute with glass jars and use them as stationary holders and create a mess (and stress) free craft space.
Regardless of what you envision with your own flooring, remember to be creative and reflect your own personality with your choices to achieve the best results. If you couldn’t find any inspiration here, remember decluttering can help bring out the most important features of your home, and will accentuate your flooring further.
