8 clever room decor tricks

1. Hang a graphic quilt

Have a big blank wall you don’t know what to do with? Hanging a graphic quilt might just be the solution.

  • It creates a nice focal point for the room and adds a graphic element without any other changes needed to the room.

2. Choose a unique bedspread

A bold coloured or printed bedspread creates a point of interest in a room.

  • You can choose a pattern that matches your walls or furniture to create a sense of unity in your space.

3. Use statement prints for furniture and room accessories

Bold prints aren’t reserved for bedspreads. Choose bold prints on items like lampshades, throw pillows and upholstered chairs.

4. Throw on a few pillows

Throw pillows are an easy way to change the whole look of your room without much effort.

  • They’re generally inexpensive, and if you have neutral wall colours and furniture, you can easily switch up the colour scheme of your room simply by changing the pillow colours and patterns.

5. Experiment with silk flowers

If you love having flowers at home but can’t afford to constantly be buying and replacing fresh flowers, silk flowers are the answer for you.

  • You can buy them individually or in prearranged bouquets. They are beautiful accents for any room.

6. Use open shelves to display art and decor elements

Bookshelves don’t have to be just for books.

  • They can be used to easily display your favourite framed photos, works of art, vases and other decor pieces.

7. Embellish with a special headboard

A decorative headboard for your bed can really spruce up the look of your entire bedroom.

  • Whether it has an ornate frame or whimsical curves, it can make a simple bed frame look luxurious.

8. Put up wall art

Wall art is a simple way to change the look of a room without doing a complete overhaul.

  • You can turn one wall into a gallery wall with multiple frames of varying sizes, colours and shapes.
  • Frame your favourite personal photos, quotes, photography or art.
