Have you been piling up home improvement ideas on your Pinterest board for a while now? Well, this is the sign you’ve been waiting for to finally get them to action.
You’ve got the creativity and the vision… but perhaps you’re dealing with limitations such as not having enough space at home. Should that be enough reason for you to hold back in finally getting the house design of your dreams? We say no to that.
Read on for some tips on how to pull off your home decor ideas even if you do not have ample space.
1. Dress your windows well.
Windows play a huge role in house design because it is that one channel in your home that allows natural light to bathe your space. A classic home decor rule is to keep your lighting as airy and bright as possible if you want to create the illusion of more space—something you can easily do by keeping away from heavy curtains and sticking to lighter fabrics. If it can’t be helped, opt for subtle light fixtures to accentuate your space.
2. Stick to a color palette.
Just because you’re renovating doesn’t mean you have to pile on the hues when giving your home a much-needed facelift. Too many visual elements can easily crowd a space, so a better idea is to stick to a limited number of colors to keep the visual area clear.
That doesn’t mean, however, that you need to be boring with your choices. Adding pops of color here and there can make your interiors interesting without overwhelming the eye. For example, Oaklane’s gorgeous Vanne teak wood tray is a good idea to place in a living room as a statement piece. It can also work well as a visual element for your home office setup, especially if its space is rather limited.
3. Play with the elements.
There are just certain visual elements that you can instantly connect with a home improvement idea. For one, elements relating to nature, such as the beach, greenery, and anything wood-based, are versatile themes that will fit your home in whatever season, be it summer or monsoon season.
Depending on your preference, you can easily dress up your space without overcrowding it by choosing the right accessories that can set up the visual tone that you want. Take for example our Allena golden charger plate. It may be simple and minimalist, but it certainly drives the summer feel with its elegant, metallic design.

5. Add some home scents.
