Every single person on this earth has something they can make better, and we all have the power to do it. As a matter of fact, people often say that the most creative things you can make are your own life and your own self. But many people don’t think they’re good enough at these two things and choose to not try because they fear failure.
But what if instead of fearing failure you made an effort not to fail in the first place? What would happen then? You might find out that you’re much more creative than you thought. And besides, even if you only get one great idea from reading this article today, wouldn’t it be worth it? Here we compile a complete list of nifty design inspiration you can try by yourself at home.
Use A Mirror To Make The Room Appear Bigger Than It Is
If you have a plain, boring room that isn’t very big, the feel of it can be enhanced just by strategically placing mirrors in front of important pieces of furniture. Mirror creates an illusion as though the room is extended from its actual length.
Use Candles To Spruce Up The Look Of Your Room
Candles are one of those things that are nice to have around but most people don’t usually use. Turn them into a useful decor piece by strategically placing them in spots where they’ll make your room look better.
Decorate Your Bed
If you can’t afford to splurge on expensive bed sheets, then why not use a reasonably priced but proven quality among the best textiles available? You can use fabric such as linen. It makes for a really good bed linen that is both versatile and easy to care for. That way, you can ensure you get the best for comfort but also be able to decorate and have a stylish bedroom just like that.
Make The Most Out of A Small Space
If you have a small bedroom but need somewhere to put your study desk, why not consider making a foldaway bed? They’re clever and convenient, and they’ll save you a lot of space. Nowadays it is easy to find furniture shops that have this type of bed and the quality is also pretty good.
Use Old Containers As Planters
If you’re into reusing things to make your life greener, then this idea is for you. Why not plant flowers in those old containers that once contained your favorite drink? You can even paint them if it makes the design process easier and more desirable for you. Just make sure you have the correct plants that will not die when you put them indoors.
Turn Your Kitchen Into A Relaxing Dining Room
If you’re the type of person who doesn’t like having dinner in your kitchen, then this idea is perfect for you. All it takes are some drapes, which will give that dull old room an elegant feel. Add a few potted plants and you won’t be able to resist the urge to have dinner there every night.
Organize Your Drawers
Do you have a drawer full of socks, but you don’t know where each color goes? Try using those cute little separators that come with shoe boxes as plastic container dividers. They’re perfect for small drawers.
Use Old Magazines To Wrap Up Your Gifts In Style
If you have a stack of old magazines that are just taking up space, then put them to good use. Cut out interesting images from the pages and use them as wrapping paper on your next gift.
Use Plain Old Cardboard To Make A Sophisticated-Looking Cd Case
Believe it or not, you can make yourself a very chic CD case out of plain old cardboard. All you have to do is cut the side flaps off an empty cereal box, glue them together then wrap some wrapping paper around it. You have your very own designer CD case.
Make Your Own Custom-Designed Wall Stickers
If you’re into interior design, then this is the perfect idea for you. Visit an online sticker printing website to create your own customized designs. Personalize them with quotes or images of your choice, place the order, and voila. Wall art that looks like it came straight from the mall.
Use Magnetic Tape To Make Your Own Refrigerator Magnets
To make these, all you have to do is buy some magnetic tape from any hardware store, cut it into small pieces then stick them on the back of cute photos or quotes that you like. You could even run a little magnet along the top edge of your fridge and use that as a place to stick all your new magnets. Alternatively, you can also make fridge magnets from scrap irons and wrap them with stickers or a custom wrapper of your choice.
Use Jugs And Vases As Water Features
You can add a lot of style to your home just by using some old jugs and vases in interesting ways. For instance, fill them with water and use them as stylish alternatives to the boring old faucet. They’ll brighten up your kitchen.
