Place the furniture at some distance from your walls. Consider positioning the furniture pieces at intriguing angles. For example, if the room is narrow, the sofa should be arranged diagonally. This would make the room appear wider, and would give it an inviting, warm layout.

Clean and Paint

A fresh coat of paint or a clean up of the existing doors and moldings can work wonders for your home. Look for useful utensils or new colors at any home improvement store in your locality.

You may also consider painting one wall using one of your favorite colors. This wall may serve as the focal point. Place some interesting piece of art on the wall, and put an appealing furniture piece there.

Place die cut Decorative Pieces

If die cutting is one of your hobbies, then you can create some great decorative pieces to include in your home. All you need to have is a good die cutting equipment. Go for creating die cut flowers, laces, and other designs in paper or fabric, and place them on walls, furniture pieces and other places.

Include Plants

Bring in some plants inside your home to fill the space with fresh air. In case you don’t have the time to water and look after plants, get a few silk trees and plants. Their quality is so great that you would find it difficult to distinguish between the artificial plants and the real ones.

Hang a Mirror or Pictures

Consider hanging pictures on the walls, which reflect your unique personality. Go for ornate frames. In case you hang a mirror, go for positioning it such that it gives the reflection of a nice view, or some appealing architectural element.
