It may not have happened by choice, since the pandemic lockdowns and lack of activities left loads of time for thinking and inspiring people to invest in makeover projects. #2

Bathroom DIY Upgrade. Before And After

Whether your home is due for an update or you just want to breathe new life into your space, there are lots of creative decor trends and styles to try out. If you’re planning to take your project to a whole new level in the upcoming year, there’s a few tips to consider before designing your room.
First, remember that you’re not going to complete transforming the entire room, not to mention the house, overnight. Avoid buying things like a whole furniture set that would only result in your place looking cluttered. Don’t try to make your room look like something from a furniture store catalogue and remember that it should be unique, look natural and reflect on who you are as a person. #5

Next, if you decide on a theme, don’t overdo it. Thinking of a concept for your room is a good idea but it’s easy to go overboard with it. If you wish that your room would have a tropical mood, getting wallpaper, sheets, rugs or even furniture with little palm trees on them might result in it resembling a bizarre theme park.
Remember that trends have a tendency to come and go. It’s better to keep the theme subtle and include little decor pieces that could be easily changeable in the future. This also helps to make sure that your room does not end being monotonous and unoriginal. After all, personalized room decor is exciting to see, so don’t be afraid to experiment with it. #7

Most importantly, don’t rush into buying all of the furniture, fluffy pillows and little knick-knacks in one day, especially if you’re on a budget. It’s best to get the statement pieces first and see how it feels to have them. Then, take time to choose the accessories you think would serve both function and aesthetics, and let the interior grow over time. #9

If you’re afraid that you lack skill and your decorating ideas will mess up the whole room, don’t be! It is something that you can learn over time, so don’t feel intimidated by the perfectly arranged pictures you see on social media. Just remember, the only way for your home can become your sanctuary is if you do what looks best for you.#11
