Diwali or Deepawali, the festival of lights is fast approaching, and most Indians think about how to clean and decorate their homes. From wardrobes, kitchen cabinets to bookshelves, closets and even those forgotten lofts are touched with some sort of magic wand of Diwali.
Traditionally, people used to paint their entire houses for Diwali but with rising expenses, paucity of time and sheer inconvenience, most of them have taken the easy way out of just sprucing up the house to give it a fresh fervor and feel. Following are a few tips for giving a new look to your home this Diwali:
Create an Accent Wall
Instead of painting the entire home, you can create accent walls in your rooms. You can give your room a gleeful touch by painting one wall in a strikingly vibrant color, in contrast to the neutral colours in which the walls of a room are normally painted. Moreover, you can also brighten up the corners with a vibrant colour for a new look.
For those who do not have time for getting the walls painted, wallpaper can be a cheaper and a sure shot way to liven up a space. Wallpapers are available in a wide range of colors and textures – copper, gold, silver, metallic, matte, or floral geometric etc., which can be easily installed in sync with the existing décor of the room
Change Some Furnishings
Changing some drapes and furnishings is the easiest way to create a new look for your home this Diwali. Changing the drapes creates a whole new look for any room. To stay within budget choose one item that will create the maximum impact. Even changing the cushions to vibrant coloured ones gives a new feel to the entire room.
Get a Focal Decorative Piece
An impressive look can be created by putting up a statement decorative piece in your home. You can buy an ethnic accent piece or an artifact which complements your wall colors. Keeping this focal piece in the entryway or the living room will give the best impression to the visitors.
Experiment with Plants
Decorative plants can be put up at the entry as well as other strategic locations in the house. Corners, bathroom and living room are the places where planters can make a great impact, besides being good for the environment and health too.
With the above changes, your home will certainly support a new appearance and will be ready for a vibrant glow this Diwali!
