6 Creative Home Design Ideas You Have Try out

6 Creative Home Design Ideas You Have Try out

One of the best feelings in the world is having a warm, cozy home to come back to. Without this feeling, your house is just another living space. It’s even better when your home is decorated according to your own wishes and taste. Having a home design that fits your own personality and lifestyle is the right way to do it. Of course, furniture can be easily bought. There are numerous designers and companies that create furniture and décor items. But if you are feeling a little bit artistic, you can always make a house your own with some DIY projects.

Here are a few creative suggestions you could try out in your own home. They will make the space more interesting, as well as enjoyable. Without a doubt, you will be running back home immediately after work.

1. DIY Furniture

    Sure, being in charge of decorating your home is pleasurable. But it also requires buying furniture, then putting it in your house. What if you decorated with a really personal touch in the form of DIY items? You could imagine and create something completely on your own, made according to your taste. Moreover, you would do all the hard work, which makes this even more valuable. Without a doubt, you would appreciate that piece of furniture more than others.

    For instance, you could make something small like a coffee table. This is an item you would definitely need and use all the time. Therefore, it is perfect for becoming your personal project. Even better, it wouldn’t be much work. The table could be of a smaller size, and made using palettes, for example. In order to make it, you would need a few tools, some paint and wood, all of which can be found at your nearest hardware store. Furthermore, you have the internet to teach you about building a coffee table. You can find numerous instructions and video tutorials on how it’s done.

    If a coffee table is not your preference, you can choose to make a bookshelf, picture frames, storage or anything else that is easy and practical.

    2. Bold Colors on the Walls

      One feature that will make your interior pop out is the color scheme found on your walls or furniture. You have probably noticed that a lot of people choose to have one wall painted in a bold color, while the others are painted neutral. For example, your bedroom could be beige, all except one accented wall, painted in red, blue or whatever color you want. This will give the room a special flair and an interesting look.

      Another option you could try is to have a room painted in clashing colors. For instance, have one room painted in red and green, or pink and orange. This type of design would create a “wow” effect every time you enter the room. It doesn’t even have to be whole walls. You can just have a few details painted this way, like the door and the carpet, or one wall and the door. Either way, it is important to have something extraordinary that will make your house look unique.

      3. Glass Floor

        For those who want something more extravagant, as well as daring, go for a glass floor. You could have a gallery above your living room, for example, with the floor being all made of glass, or at least some part of it. Or, if you are a wine lover, you could create a glass trap door leading to the underground wine basement – something that is very popular at the moment.

        4. Multipurpose Features

          For people who like practical things, having multipurpose furniture is very important. They find it really useful, and think it is a smart financial move. Not only would you get two-in-one features, but you would also save money on making or buying more furniture.

          For example, you could have a mirror that doubles in size once you open it; you could have a dining table that turns into a pool table when the top is removed.

          One more smart thing would be to use your stairs to the fullest. Usually, there is a lot of space left unused underneath the staircase. However, if you think carefully, you could turn this into a bonus for yourself. For instance, you can make drawers that would hide storage space below each step, or maybe have a bookshelf or a closet on the side of the stairs. Whatever the choice, it wouldn’t go to waste.

          5. Vertical Garden

            If you like plants, but do not have a lot of space for flower pots, you could build a vertical garden. This represents a type of shelving that would be used for holding small or big plants instead of books. One way you could use it is for herbs that could be used for cooking. Moreover, this vertical garden could be built in your kitchen, so it is close to you while you are making meals. Another example is to have succulent plants built into your bookshelf, or a garden standing on its own on a wall. Not only would it give you more space for numerous plants, but it would also be a rather cool design trick, and a décor item.

            6. Colorful Tiles

              Use colorful tiles to create a vibrant styling or a fake carpet effect. You could combine different styles of tiles, like bigger ones and then smaller colorful ones in the center, as a carpet. This is a great solution for people living near beaches, as they can easily walk in and out of the house without worrying about ruining the carpet with sand. Also, tiling is awesome for warmer cities because it provides a cooling effect.

              Another great way of using tiles is to put them on walls as decorations. For instance, you could use colorful tiles mixed with white ones. They would serve as décor instead of pictures, or just give you a special pop of color.

              There are numerous ways of decorating your house, and each one can be creative in its own way. You could do DIY projects, experiment with glass, or have a garden wall. Your home should have your personal touch. So, get down to work and decorate your house however you wish.

              How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

              How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

              As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

              “Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

              When we are still children, our thoughts seem to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

              Advertising

              Just imagine then how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power! We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities. We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

              We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb. We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits. We’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head.

              But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

              So…how exactly are we to achieve that?

              It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are a few ideas on how you can get started.

              1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

              Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

              2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

              This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

              You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty. If you seek it, you will find it.

              3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

              This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what is really important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

              4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

              How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking. It is like watching a DVD that saddens and frustrates you, completely pulling you down. Eject that old DVD, throw it away and insert a new, better, more hopeful one instead.

              So, instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

              If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

              And remember: You are (or will become) what you think you are. This is reason enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
