No matter who you live with, your home is your haven, and it’s where you’ll spend most of your time. Your room isn’t just supposed to look welcoming for you alone, but it also has to be comfortable and cozy enough for the whole family. When considering redecorating or remodeling a room, it might cost you a lot of money; however, being on a budget doesn’t mean you can’t have the cozy look you desire.
Getting crafty and doing your own DIY projects will spruce up any room, read on below for affordable tips.
1- Mix and Match Different Tones
The first tip to make sure that your room looks both well-arranged and cozy is to use hues and varying tones of the same color. This can be achieved by matching the tones of the wallpaper, bedding, and any other furniture or pillows around your room. Making a layout when you’re trying to design your room will immensely help you see how the colors will complement each other. But don’t worry too much because you can’t go wrong as long as you don’t stray away from similar colors.
2- Layer Patterns
This may come as a surprise, but by having differently patterned pieces around your room, you are on the right track to achieving a cozy home. Of course, careful not to go crazy with the colors or else everything will be mismatched. Make sure that the room remains cohesive by following a certain theme or color binding the room’s design. For example, if your walls need sprucing, you could put up a floral, blue wallpaper and add an armchair with a couple of blue striped throw pillows.
3- Add Accents
This is great if your room has simple furniture or is minimally decorated by using neutral colors like white. By adding a furniture piece that is colorful to an otherwise plain room is affordable and adds coziness to your room. You can also use nail polish to create a water marbling effect on furniture pieces as accents; this adds to the personality of your room, thus making it much more comfortable and inviting.
4- Add a Reading Nook
If you are a person who enjoys reading, then you should look into having your very own reading nook in your room. This is guaranteed to make it your favorite place on earth. You can easily DIY your very own nook if you have a window seat. Even if you do not have one, you can still build your own reading nook by using a hook, a hula hoop, a curtain or bed sheet, string lights as well awesome pillows and cushions. Build your own makeshift bookcase and it will give your room a rustic and homey feel.
Using these DIY tips you can easily ensure that wherever you are, your space is cozy and welcoming. You don’t have to spend tons of money to buy stuff that makes your room seem cozy when you actually can have fun decorating and designing your room at an affordable price and with much better results.
