The spaces that we spend so much time in can dictate our mood and general productivity. The internet is so full of picturesque spaces that leave you wondering how much interior designers charge for such exceptionally glamorous work. It is 2020 folks. You do not need to break the bank to spruce up your home. Below are 15 affordable décor pieces that your home will thank you for in 2020:
1. Framed Wall Art
God, you have no idea how wall frames are such a game changer. In this age, you can go with any design ranging from colorful pieces to worded ones. You can either hang these on your walls or add them on your shelf.
2. Floating Shelves
These not only decorate your space but also save up space in your home. You can add knickknacks such as old books and souvenirs on these floating shelves.
3. Potted plants
Many people are embracing the potted plants lifestyle. This is currently one of the booming businesses in Kenya at the moment. You can even choose to grow herbs in your home, thanks to this technique.
Mirrors are such timely pieces to add to your space especially if you are looking to maximize the space in your home. I find round mirrors to be quite versatile since you could place them anywhere and they would still improve the outlook of your space.
5. Throw pillows
I am the biggest lover of throw pillows, simply because they are soft, comfortable and offer you support. I specifically love the ones that add a pop of color on a neutral background. All in all, you can never go wrong with throw pillows. Oh, and you can never have enough of them.
6. Woolen rugs
These are convenient for people who love to take flat lays. Apart from that, they do make the place look clean and cozy.
Is your wall such an eyesore? You can change that today by transforming that wall to a design of your choice. You can find quality wallpapers from as low as ksh.2,500. If you live in a rental, kindly consult your landlord or caretaker before you install the wallpaper.
The good thing about antiques is that they get better with time. I understand that antiques are not everyone’s cup of tea but if you fancy such pieces, your home will thank you.
9. Marble papers
I found these to be key in places where you want to improve the look but you don’t want to paint the surfaces. Such include your kitchen walls, kitchen surfaces, your dressing table and your makeup desk. A good roll costs about ksh. 2500.
10. Pendant lighting
Pendant lights are a good investment for your space. I am always mesmerized every time I walk to a restaurant that has them. A good number of stores along River Road sell them.
11. Decorative Trays
You can let these be the masterpiece at your living room table or find one to sit on your dressing table. Find knickknacks to keep in them. Such include tiny pieces such as coins, keys and hair clips. You can even go ahead a whole bunch of makeup there if the tray is in your bedroom.
12. Decorative Books
I know it beats logic to buy books for the sole purpose of decoration but that is what people are doing now. Such include books such as Chanel, Prada and Tom ford.
13. Candle holders
These come in so many styles. Find one that fits your theme then incorporate it into your space.
14. Wine bottle decoration
There are very many cute ways that you can repurpose used wine bottles. Such include string art, spray painting them and making led lights in them.
There are many ways that you can use a vase. Such include using it as a flower holder, marble bowl and a utensil holder. All in all, a vase is such a beautiful addition to your home.
