Decorate your Bedroom!

Whether you’ve just moved or are looking for a quick, little home pick-me-up, or perhaps something more significant, there are some well-known decor tricks that designers employ that you too can easily do with minimal effort and cost.  Sometimes the smallest things make the greatest impact. Maybe you want to soften the walls, brighten your room, or add some warmth to your room. Take a look at these clever decor tips and see how they can inspire you!

1. Focus on the view- 

A bedroom always feels nicer when the first thing you experience is a pleasant view out the window — as opposed to a view looking straight at the bed. If you’re designing a new bedroom or reworking an old one, try to come up with a layout that focuses on the vista — whether it’s something as stunning as a lake or as simple as your backyard.

2. Connect with the outdoors-

While this might not be feasible in all climates, connecting a room with the outdoors is a great way to make the space feel larger and admit more natural light. If your bedroom is on the ground floor, adding a set of French doors can instantly increase visual space.

3. Storage-savvy space-

In a small room, getting creative with storage solutions is key. This bed’s backrest slides up to reveal storage. On the headboard, you push in on a hinged panel to access a similar space.

4. Choose a Focal Point-

A beautiful piece of furniture becomes the focal point when angled into the room. This approach may be more efficient in your space, too.

5. Make Rest a Priority-

Your bedroom should be your retreat, a sanctuary for peaceful reading, writing, studying, as much as a resting place.


Welcome Winters!

With the inception of winters, the weather becomes gloomy and sad. Even a small window can brighten up your place. Get a perfect decor for your home in winters and brighten up your days.

Mirror Magic
If you don’t have enough space to add new lights, add a few mirrors adjacent to your lights. Mirrors create the illusion of more lighting sources, and doubles the amount of light that bounces around your apartment.

Wireless lights
Though candles are a great way to add light and style to your living area, consider more safer options like LED candles and battery operated lights. Not only are they safer from fire hazards, they can also be placed anywhere.

Don’t overdo
Now that you have new lamps, string lights and mirrors around the house, take some time to consider the proper placement of each piece to maximise the effect. Also don’t put all the lighting in one room and neglect other places. Put at least one light source near each corner of larger rooms.

Sticking to lighter shades
To keep your apartment as bright as possible, stick to light-coloured lamp shades. Darker lamp shades will filter out a considerable amount of light and may leave you sitting in the dark.

String/Fairy lights
These might remind you of the festive season, but they work well when it comes to adding more light to your house and also look pretty as a home decor idea. Simply string them around the window or adorn your book shelve with it. For a classier look, go for white ones rather than coloured.

Proper lighting not only provides enough light to your home during the dark hours but also adds up to your efforts of home decor.



Stay close to nature!

If you love the green colour and have space, then you should explore this idea.

Balcony gardens can be intimate, manageable, useful, and absolutely stunning. But they can be complicated or simple depending on your choices and time to manage it.

Having an open garden in front of your home is a dream most of us have. With the apartment culture on rise, a personal garden seems a distant dream but balcony gardens are one arena that you can explore.

The most basic need of a balcony garden is space. Make sure you have space enough to have a few planters without making it look cluttered.

Since balconies differ in the climate from the ground and each balcony is situated in a different direction, you need to determine the environment of your balcony before selecting the kind of plants that can survive that weather condition.

Once you are sure of the weather conditions, choose a variety of plants mixing the seasonal and annual ones, so that your garden stays green always. You can also consider plants that require the structural support of trellises or cages to add variety and beauty.

Make sure the containers you plan to use are compatible with the growth habits of your plants and have adequate drainage as well.

Use different combinations of container and plant sizes to create visual interest. Reduce visual clutter by choosing containers that blend in with the surroundings.

If you have a variety, layer plants, with taller plants in the back and smaller ones in the front. You can also try vertical gardening. Hanging baskets and trellises can be used to maximize space and can really take your balcony garden to the next level.

Adding a little creativity and dedicating few minutes each day can really bring the blossom of a garden to your home. But before starting off, make sure your society and building management allows them.


Own a home!

Getting a home or buying a home of your own is one of the most important aspects of life. It not only defines your well-being but also gives you security for life!

Having a place of one’s own is important in terms of security and investment for the future. With changing times and economy, it has not only become easy to buy a home but also the age at which you purchase your first home has decreased.

Here are some of the benefits of having your own home.

1. At the most basic level, having your own home gives you a sense of security and ownership. Not only do you have a place to reside but you also own it and would own it for the rest of your life. Isn’t that a great feeling?

2. Property rates would only increase with time. We have seen a surge in the property rates in the last two decades and it is only going to move upwards. With the lands getting scarce and the demands increasing, we only know what happens to its prices.

3. With changing times, we have also seen an upward trend in the salaries, so affordability is not an issue combined with the fact that home loans are no longer a terrifying aspect.

4. Staying on rent cannot be a permanent option. In fact, the amount that you shell out every month on your rent can be your EMI towards your home loan repayment, which in the end, will help you own a house and not leave you homeless. Also the interest on home loans are lower than any other loan, so it’s better to take a loan and buy property.

5. Advantage of tax breaks. Under the present tax rules, you can get a tax break on interest repayments for home loans to the extent of Rs 150,000 and on principal payments up to Rs 100,000 per annum.

6. Property works as a good investment and an asset. We have always seen homes becoming a rewarding investment and property rates are only likely to rise with urbanisation and economic development.

These reasons not only sum up the need of a home but also make it look beneficial for the future.
