  1. Accent wall

Didn’t we tell you how accent walls could add magic to your room? How about we tell you to paint it further up! Accent ceilings are the new accent walls and you wouldn’t believe until you see it how classy the mood of the room can become.

  1. Old window frame as wall art

It might often surprise you all the tricky and exciting things you can do with old unused things lying around in your house. Got an old window frame around? Use it as distressed wall art and decorate it with things you like, such as movie posters, flower pots or something chic or even dramatic.

  1. A space for houseplants

Green is always in! There is not a space in the house that a houseplant cannot bring alive. Houseplants look beautiful in the cosy corner in your living room or on any of the walls of your hallway. You’re going to thank us for this! 😉

  1. Add unframed mirrors to closet doors

If you want your room to look spacious, we suggest adding mirrors to the room. An unframed mirror on the closet door can give depth to your room and make the room look brighter and bigger.

  1. Adding teak to your shower floor makes it look like a spa

Rekindle with the ambience of that romantic resort you last visited, at home. Yes, you heard it right! Adding teak to your shower flooring makes it look like a spa. Not only is the rustic look a great calling for the romantic setting but it also makes the floor look cleaner in comparison to marble, granite or mosaic. However, teak in shower floor needs regular maintenance to avoid soap scum. Don’t forget to scrub it with dish soap or warm water every once a month.

  1. Hide wire clutter

Wire clutter is ugly. Period. There’s nothing at all good to see them hanging around in the house. Hide them within a curtain rod that you could use as a pipe against the wall for hiding the wire clutter around your TV space or desktop, or put them inside a box or basket and cover the top. It will surprise you how this small step can make your room look so much cleaner and tidier.
