1.Transforming your home with colour
Colour has a significant impact on the mood and atmosphere of a room. The right colours can make your space feel more spacious, relaxing, and inviting. Here are some tips to transform your home with colour:
Choose a colour scheme
A cohesive colour scheme can make your home decor feel more put together. You can use a colour wheel to choose complementary or contrasting colours that work well together.
Play with accent colours
Adding pops of colour can create interest and depth in a room. You can add accent colours through throw pillows, curtains, rugs, or fix colourful artwork to the wall with sticky VELCRO® Brand strips.
Create a feature wall
A feature wall is a wall painted or wallpapered in a different colour than the other walls in the room. It can create a focal point and add interest to the space.
Use colour to define spaces
You can use different colours to define different areas in your home, such as a dining area or a reading nook.
2. Using fabric as a focal decor point
Fabric is a versatile and affordable way to add texture, colour, and personality to your home decor. Here are some ways to use fabric as a focal decor point:
Create a statement piece with a colourful fabric sofa
A bold and colourful sofa can make a statement and be the focal point of a room. If you already own a sofa but are looking to update the colour, there is an easy cheap option using adhesive VELCRO® Brand tape. Simply find the material that you want for your sofa, cut to size and then attach using heavy duty double sided tape.
Add patterned throw pillows
Throw pillows are an easy way to add texture, colour, and pattern to your home decor. You can mix and match different patterns and colours to create a cohesive look. You can also easily make your own throw pillows by getting some fun material and then using sew on VELCRO® Brand strips to hold it all together and make your cushion.
Hang curtains to create height
Hanging curtains from floor to ceiling can make a room feel taller and more spacious.
Use fabric as wall decor
You can frame fabric or hang a tapestry to create a unique and eye-catching wall decor. The best way to hang a tapestry if you don’t want to mark the wall is to use heavy duty double sided tape VELCRO® Brand.
Use a fabric runner or tablecloth
A colourful and patterned table runner or tablecloth can add interest to a dining table or kitchen island. Fix your fabric runner so it doesn’t slip away using sticky VELCRO® Brand strips.
Section 3: Focusing on nature and biophilic design
Biophilic design is all about bringing nature indoors. It’s been shown to reduce stress, improve mental wellbeing, and increase productivity. Here are some ways to incorporate biophilic design into your home:
Add indoor plants
Plants not only look great, but they also purify the air and improve humidity levels. You can choose plants that thrive in low light or humid environments, such as snake plants, pothos, or spider plants.
Use natural materials
Incorporating natural materials, such as wood, stone, or jute, can create a calming and grounding effect in your home decor.
Create a green wall
A green wall is a vertical garden that can be installed indoors. It not only adds greenery to your home but also acts as a natural air filter.
Use water features
Incorporating a water feature, such as a small fountain or a fish tank, can add a sense of tranquillity and relaxation to your home.
Bring in natural light
Natural light not only improves the aesthetic of your home but also has numerous health benefits. You can maximise natural light by removing heavy curtains, using sheer fabrics, or installing skylights.
4.Maximising natural light by optical tricks
Natural light can make a big difference in your home decor. Here are some tips on how to maximise natural light in your space using optical tricks:
Mirrors reflect light and create the illusion of more space. You can hang a large mirror on a wall opposite a window or a series of smaller mirrors to create a gallery wall. If you don’t want to drill into your walls or you have a wall that is difficult to drill into, an alternative is to use heavy duty VELCRO® Brand tape to hang your mirrors in the desired spaces.
Use light-coloured fabrics
Light-coloured fabrics, such as white or pale shades of blue or green, reflect light and create a bright and airy feel in your home.
Install window treatments
Window treatments, such as blinds or shades, can be adjusted to control the amount of natural light entering a room.
Paint your walls light colours
Light-coloured walls reflect light and make a room feel more spacious and airy.
Use glossy finishes
Glossy finishes, such as high-gloss paint or shiny tiles, reflect light and add a sense of depth to your home decor.
