Mix and match or contrast the fabric with your walls to infuse a fresh look into your home. An attractive curtain rod with tassels flowing down midway to the length of the curtain makes a noticeable change.

Tiles in the Kitchen and Bathroom

Lovely tiles across the kitchen gives a new look and fills you with enthusiasm as you cook your favorite food. Embed colorful tiles in patterns of your choice to give a novel look to your kitchen. Kitchen backsplashes in porcelain can be hand painted to add a personal touch to your home.

Infuse a fresh look into your bathroom by the use of tiles. Blue colored tiles contrasted with the silver colored fittings will give you a calming effect that will make you want to spend more time in the bath tub.

Dining Room Makeover

Instead of closed cabinets and sideboards in the dining area, open shelves work wonders in enhancing the looks. Display your bright pieces of attractive cups in bone china and porcelain. Invest in a few glass cutlery to reflect the lights when you are using the dining rooms at night. A bright tablecloth coupled with a muted light on top of the dining table is all that is needed to bring about a welcome change.

Go Green

Line up potted plants in your living room, kitchen, and balcony. You can hand paint the pots to make them attractive. The kitchen ledge can accommodate herbs, which you can use in your kitchen. The aroma wafting from them infuses fresh fragrance into your kitchen.

DIY options include growing a creeper inside a bottle, turning your unused gum boots as a plant holder, using an inverted wine bottle as a lamp holder or transforming a bamboo basket into a painted lamp shade. The best part is that these ideas are cheap but paint a gorgeous picture of your home as though you have gone in for a complete redo.
