It’s time to get rid of those winter chills! Start this spring off right with some easy DIY décor tricks that will make your condo vibrant, spacious and cheerful. Make your condo the source of entertainment by turning your patio into a whole new outdoor space, or switch up a few things around the house for a major refresh! Here are a few quick and easy DIY spring décor tips to bring out that inner interior designer.
Make your own mini art gallery
Buy different sized picture frames that have precut mats inside them. Print out your favourite and most unique artistic photos. Make sure your frames don’t clash with your wall colour. If your wall and furniture are simple and white, buy thin black frames with white paper mats or silver frames with linen or grey mats. This way your gallery will look professional, sleek and elegant. You can make this gallery work anywhere in your home: in the foyer, in the living room, or in your den.
Add a mirror next to your dining table
In feng shui, dining rooms are the perfect place to add a mirror. Dining represents a family’s wealth and by adding a mirror in the dining room will magnify this energy. You can choose a big and bold mirror to hang in a small dining room. Make sure the mirror is big enough to complement the room, but not too big and overpowering. You can also choose to lean your mirror against a wall. This way the whole dining room is reflected, making it seem larger.
Make your balcony cozy
With the summer months just around the corner, transform your balcony into your dream outdoor space. Add your own style by adding a small outdoor dining set, vibrant mat, your favourite plants and outdoor string lighting. You can even throw a blanket over the chairs for those cool summer nights.
Change up your bedding
The vibe of an entire room can change instantly with a new set of bedding. Add a pop of pastel to your room by choosing spring colours, think baby pinks, blues, lavender. Find pillows with textures and patterns that will match your bedding and give your room a hint of colour. Keep the bedding simple and natural so you can reuse it whenever you like. You can find bedding sets, such as “bed in a bag” for $100 at stores like Bed Bath and Beyond.
Use open storage in your kitchen
If your condo is lacking storage in your kitchen, use open storage. Choose an industrial metal shelving unit for extra kitchen space. The metal touches will compliment stainless steel appliances that many modern condo kitchens have. Add baskets to store snacks and incorporate a few decorative touches to make it look fun!
