5 Ways To Transform Our Home

Home is our favorite place where we are the most comfortable.
Our home speaks a lot- even the selection/placement of chair & table!

Our home is where we can let our hair down and feel free to smile!
Our home is the reflection of our own individual choice and style!

No two homes are the same, just like the inhabitants in a city!
Our homes truly are a reflection of our personality!

When our homes reveal such a lot & have so much to say,
Shouldn’t we ensure that they look bright & nice every day?

Here are 5 thrifty ways by which we can pep up and transform our home:

No Clutter
Clutter is an absolute no-no for a good home. It means negative energy. High time we bade bye to those piles of newspapers/magazines and all those items that are not in use.

‘Cleanliness is next to Godliness’. It is said that Maa Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth, hates dirty homes. For ushering in prosperity, our homes must be clean. This includes scrubbing the kitchen tiles or window-sills and doing the laundry.

A simple way to be more orderly and organized is by reserving a place for everything and making sure that everything is in its place. We do not lose any time looking for things then! This especially applies to the bedroom since this is the room where we want to calm down. Therefore orderliness is important. If you look out for more inspiration about a tidy and cozy bedroom, you can have a look here.

Smart and Cool Home Furnishings
Home furnishings like curtains, bedsheets, cushion-covers, sofa-covers etc can majorly change the look of our home. How do you like this hand-woven bed sheet with the traditional Sambalpuri ikat print from Odisha, India?

Change is always welcome and getting to spot newer colours, prints and designs can change the way we feel about our home. It is not necessary to splurge on new home furnishings; we can always refurbish the existing ones. Fabric-painting or patch-work or lace-stitching can give the home furnishings a new life.

Attractive Home Decoration Items
Home decoration items like lampshades, statues, lights, flowers, vase etc add beauty to our homes. Hanging a wind chime brings in positivity. Similarly, some statues and plants are said to attract good fortune. Paintings and bright wall-hangings like Pipli applique-works can be excellent for home decor.
