Decorate switches

Outlets and switches need not be left the way it is. You could cover the cracks or dirt that has accumulated around it with coloured paper, wall paper or tiles.

Try different arrangements

Rearrange your home now and then. You will get a break from the monotony and also get a whole new look altogether. Try doing something unconventional. There isn’t any said rule that says particular furniture items should be arranged in any set way. All you have to do is use your imagination and move things around a bit. For e.g. If your coffee table has always been in the centre, you could shift it to the side and give the living room a bigger look.

Don’t forget the balcony

The balcony is one place that can make your home a really trendy place. It is a perfect hang out area to relax. Try decorating it with plants. Also add a couple of chairs or seating that is best suitable for you. Adding lights to give the complete night look may also be a good idea.
