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 Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

              How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

              Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

              You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

              Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

              1. Work on the small tasks.

              When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

              Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

              2. Take a break from your work desk.

              Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

              Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

              3. Upgrade yourself

              Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

              The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

              4. Talk to a friend.

              Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

              Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

              5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

              If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

              Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

              Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

              6. Paint a vision to work towards.

              If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

              Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

              Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

              7. Read a book (or blog).

              The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

              Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

              Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

              8. Have a quick nap.

              If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

              9. Remember why you are doing this.

              Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

              What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

              10. Find some competition.

              Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

              Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

              11. Go exercise.

              Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

              Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

              As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

              Here’re 15 Tips to Restart the Exercise Habit (and How to Keep It).

              12. Take a good break.

              Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

              Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

              Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
