Six 30-Minute Decorating Ideas to Try Today
Personalize your space with these easy, simple, and budget-friendly projects
Many homeowners want to improve their private sanctuary but they don’t have enough time, energy, or money for a complete renovation. If you want to create a better home without investing in a full-blown makeover, here are tried-and-tested tricks worth considering.
Have you ever noticed that a bright room looks a thousand times better than a dark one? Make your area seem well-lit, airy, and spacious by choosing LED lights! While these may be more expensive at first, they can save you money in the long run because they last longer and use up less electricity.

Another way to instantly spruce up your space is to create an accent wall. Since painting your wall can take up a bit of time, you can start by putting up artwork! A masterpiece by an up-and-coming or established artist can dramatically change the look of the chosen area.
RL Tip: If you can find an oversized world map or an antique wall mirror, you can also hang these up!

Looking for more wall décor ideas? Why don’t you show off your favorite snapshots? Print them out and place in picture frames to create an interesting photo wall.
Apart from displaying your portraits, you can also frame postcards of all of the places that you’ve been to! You can even frame shawls and other lovely printed material from your beloved hometown or exotic destinations.
RL Tip: Paint can make generic store-bought picture frames look extra special! You can paint all of your old picture frames black, white, or gold in matte finish for a uniform feel.

If you’ve already painted your picture frames and you still have some paint left, you should transform your old décor! Even cheap vases, bowls, and figurines can look impressive if they all have the same color. As with the frames, you can also try matte black, white, or gold.
