Interior Design – How to Create a Stylish Games Room Without Compromising Space

When it comes to interior design, having a dedicated games room in your home may seem like an impossible prospect. For starters, your house might not have the space available to justify devoting an entire room to leisure alone. You could also be unsure as to what such a room would require. Especially if you have never undertaken a home improvement project like this before. Thankfully, there are ways around these issues. As well as a host of advantages to having your own games room.

When it comes to Interior Design, the little things matter. For example, a pool dining table could be just the centrepiece you need to make this proposal possible. A convertible table that can switch between pool and dining functions? These transformative pieces of furniture are designed to make the most of your space in a stylish, practical manner.

5 Ways to Add Some Luxury to your Bedroom

Ever looked at your bedroom and wondered how to make it look as luxurious and stylish as half the rooms on your favourite Pinterest board? Over time, it’s common for your bedroom to feel dull, boring and in desperate need of an update, but figuring out the best way to transform your bedroom often feels like a mammoth task. If you want to give your room an update but need some quick inspiration, have a read of these easy tips to help give your space a sophisticated, luxurious makeover in no time.

Think about lighting

The type of lighting you use can have a big impact on the appearance of your bedroom. Ditch your worn out light shade for some chic hanging lights or tasteful chandeliers to easily insert some glamour into any room. As for bedside lamps, consider wall lights as a more sophisticated alternative, with the added bonus of being cord free which is a great way to keep the bedroom looking minimal, and minimise the appearance of clutter.

 

Consider your bed

The bed is typically the focal point of any bedroom, meaning you should pay special attention to the frame and bedding used. Investing in a 6ft Divan bed is the perfect way to add some luxury to your room, with simple yet stylish designs, and space to store all your bits and bobs to avoid clutter. Go for bedding in beautiful colours and designs, and pay special attention to layering up your bed with soft throws and lots of cushions. They might be a pain to rearrange each morning, but the results are well worth it!

 

Optimise your space

 Making your bedroom look bigger can be a good way to give it that hotel room feel, and is easier to achieve than you’d think. Placing a large mirror across from the opposite of the room can work wonders, creating the illusion of more space in an instant! The colours you use in your room can also play a factor. Try painting your walls in light shades such as white, grey or beige, and then opt for a darker colour for the ceiling to create the illusion of higher ceilings by drawing the attention upwards.

 

Find some statement pieces

While you don’t want to over clutter your bedroom with too much furniture, it’s definitely worth hunting down some perfect key pieces to bring everything together. A stylish rug, bedside cabinet and chair with a bold colour or pattern are just a few items that can easily give your room a quick update. A beautiful piece of framed artwork should also not go amiss, being the perfect way to add personality and character.

 

Add some florals

Once the majority of the room has been transformed, create some final finishing touches with a selection of beautiful bouquets. Flowers are a lovely way to decorate your home, and give you the chance to get creative in arranging your bouquets just how you like them! Place florals in elegant vases on bedside tables, dressing tables or shelves for a really easy, quick and cost-effective way to spruce up your space.

Redecorating on a Budget

I have always been the creative type. Although I spend a lot of my time mixing and matching outfits, I also love decorating my home. Of course, you can’t compare redecoration with styling outfits, but it still puts my creativity to work, which is great. And I wanted to train as an Interior Designer once upon a time.

There’s nothing as comforting as walking into beautifully furnished rooms. But when you talk about redecorating, most people think that it means a huge strain on your budget. The truth is that you don’t have to spend so much money to have a gorgeous home.

Little tweaks here and there, simple additions, and a good dose of creativity are all you need to have a divinely decorated home that everyone will admire. In this post I’m going to share with you some of the redecorating tips that will inspire you to give your home the jazz, glitz and glamour it needs.

  1. Take a good look at what you have

Shocked? One of the most inexpensive ways to redecorate your home is to use what you have. Are there some pieces of furniture, pictures or decorative items that you can move to a different room?

Reshuffling your furniture and home accessories around is all you need to give your home a fresh look. Is there a coffee table that you keep in the study that will look great in the living room? Or throw pillows you keep in the guest bedroom that will match the sofas in the living room?

Take a day off and move the furniture around and see if it’ll work out. Don’t stop with the furniture! Try swapping curtains, rugs or even vases for a different look!

  1. Invest in some house accessories

The little things can make the greatest difference! Home accessories like new lampshades, table settings, or flower arrangements can make your room really different. The accessories don’t have to be expensive. Simple ornaments can work wonders and the good thing about this is they don’t cost so much.

A good tip is to find accessories that will fit the general theme or colour scheme you’re trying to achieve in each room. Play around with colours and textures of different accessories.

  1. Refurbish second-hand pieces

Yard sales, auction houses, and second-hand stores hold treasures that will look amazing in your home and easy on your pocket. But here’s a gentle warning: don’t get carried away with colours or fabrics. Let the shape and structure of the home items guide your choices.  This is because you can always refurbish those pieces to your taste.

Old but nicely shaped furniture can be styled to look like timeless pieces that will add the charm to your home. Worn wood or dull looking items could be polished, varnished or repainted to look brand new.

  1. Put up pictures

Remember the saying “A picture’s worth a thousand words”? It also makes your house look like a million bucks. A beautiful picture hung in a prominent part of the house can give your home an uplift. We have many pictures on walls and I am looking to add more. I think pictures make a house a home.

Play around with a collage of family photos or nature pictures. There are fabulous original pieces that go for a bargain. However, there’s really no need to go over the top by covering your all your walls with pictures. One or two well placed pictures in your home can make your home vibrant and full of life.

 

So there you have them; my budget friendly redecorating tips. Do you have any tips to add?
