Our home is much more than just a roof over our heads. It is the abode of our emotions and memories. So, it should also be a reflection of our personalities. Of course, comfort is the first thing you would think of while giving your home a makeover. However, this New Year, add a special touch to your home décor so that it makes a statement about who you are too.
With all of us spending so much more time at home ever since the onset of the pandemic, giving the home space a new look could be a great way to celebrate the New Year, new beginnings, new hope and new ambitions. So, to help you with your décor resolutions for the New Year, here’s a look at some home décor ideas that could help give your home an enchanting look.
Inspired by Nature
Remember how wonderful the world around us looked after the lockdowns of 2020? The air was cleaner, the roads were empty and we could hear birds chirping again. So, why not make a New Year's resolution to get back to nature, even with our home décor? So, if you're thinking of repainting the walls, consider putting in some green accent walls in your living room or kitchen. For smaller bedrooms, consider choosing single or double bed sheets with floral prints or earthy tones. Adding indoor plants as bedroom and living room decoration is a good idea too.
The Retro Vibe
Give a nod to your childhood or even to the 70s, with retro home furnishings. The retro look is expected to be big in 2022, according to interior design experts. You could even get bed sheets and dohars in geometric patterns, which were big in the 70s and still look good today. You could even consider an antimicrobial comforter in bamboo charcoal, a very trending colour right now. Some of the retro colours you could also consider are moss green, burnt orange and warm neutral shades for bed linen and upholstery.
The Home Office
Work-from-Home is unlikely to go away anytime soon, given the regular emergence of new variants of the coronavirus. So, why not create an inspiring space at home for optimal productivity? Remember to keep a few things in mind while choosing the space and the home décor for it. For instance, choose a quiet area, away from where most of the household work takes place. You don't even need to invest a whole lot because there are great home decorating ideas on a budget. The key is to keep it practical, functional yet comfortable, such as using folding tables, so that the space can be used for other purposes when not being used as a home office
All the talk about home office brings us to another trend that will be hot in the New Year – that is multifunctional spaces. Given that most of us live in apartments with limited space, multifunctional areas help us make most of the space that we have. You can even try home décor ideas like using indoor plants to create room dividers without making the space look smaller. You can also try some trending home décor items, like shelves, to make the most of the vertical space.
Whether you’re looking for home decorating ideas on a budget or have made a New Year’s resolution to declutter your life and your home, minimalism is the way to go. Minimalism not only makes spaces more liveable, but it also makes everyday chores lighter, such as cleaning up and dusting. The main things to focus on are the purpose of the space and the aesthetic appeal. So, if it is a bathroom, use cabinets to store all the toiletries and open up the space. If you don't already have one, get a towel rack, so that you can neatly keep towels to reduce clutter. You could add a splash of colour to the bathroom with colourful hand and bath towels.
Lastly, don’t forget to add rugs to complete the look of your living room and bedrooms. And, if you have children, brighten up their room with bedsheets in prints of their beloved characters from Disney, Marvel and even the Minions. After all, their personality should also be reflected in their spaces. So, this New Year, make a resolution to come up with home décor ideas as a family and give your living spaces a fresh breath of life.
