Whenever you are going to do some home decorating it is always the little things that will help make it comfortable and refined. From adding color to updating your light fixtures it is the little things that will make all of the difference. Here are some tips that won’t break your wallet if you are looking to enhance your home.

Warm Lighting

Nothing creates the perfect mood better than the lighting. Lighting can significantly affect how you feel and interact with your space. Add in some soft lighting into the key rooms of your home. Those should include your living room, bedrooms and even your kitchen. You can sometimes just replace your bulbs with warmer ones, add dimmers or some decorative pendant lights over a bar area in a kitchen. 


Clutter can interrupt a room’s vibe. Keeping a room well organized will help make a more relaxing atmosphere and eliminate stress. Invest in some organizers for common clutter items such as your mail so that they have a neat place until you can deal with them. Make sure to regularly declutter so things don’t accumulate to where it is overwhelming.


Personal Items

Everyone always has some personal items like photos and keepsakes that make their house a home. Just make sure to display these items in a well thought out way and in designated areas. Instead of randomly hanging photos, do a grouping in one location. For keepsakes, think about designating a shelf so things look organized and not overwhelming. 


Always begin by choosing a palette to work from when adding in color to your home. Having a consistent theme will add a good flow to your home. When you start adding in punches of color for more life, be careful not to go overboard. Colors can be different shades instead of bold tones. Rooms don’t have to be painted daring colors either, pops of color can be tackled through things like pieces of artwork and/or toss pillows.

Quality Bedding

Creating a comfortable bedroom is important when trying to make an overall comfortable and cozy home. Purchasing high-quality bedding like soft cotton sheets, plush pillows,and a cozy duvet, can set the tone for a great night's sleep. Also, having a tidy and well-made bed always will make a room feel more elevated.

Curb Appeal

While we often focus on creating a comfortable and inviting interior, don't forget about the exterior of your home. Add some potted plants or flowers to the front porch, entry or seating areas. Outdoor lighting can also help foster a nice ambience and provide a welcoming look.
