Our generation has been labelled as an “Indoor generation” as we spend most of our time in indoor activities. And Indeed, there is nothing as comfortable as one’s home but often we neglect to design and décor our own territory.
Psychologists say that our external environment affects our mental state and even the color and furniture of our room end up fluctuating our mood. You don’t need an interior designer to do this, we all have a designer hidden inside us who knows what he wants.
Here is an easy and economical guide to creating your own little kingdom while staying on budget.
There is only one thing on which there is no comprise and that is your room furniture. One doesn’t buy these products on a daily basis so one has to choose wisely what to buy and from where to buy. Instead of buying expensive furniture use promo codes and coupons to get discounts on your favorite products.
Room furniture should always be comfortable. If you are buying a couch then it should be soft and big enough for you to rest.
One other point to consider is that before buying furniture, try to introspect what kind of a person you are. For example, there are some people who are attracted to antique and vintage furniture while others prioritize contemporary furniture designs.
So, it is totally at your discretion what designs to buy.
#2. Paintings and pictures
There is always something we love enough to see it all day. Whether they are portraits of your loved ones or posters of your favorite films, hanging them on the walls of your room can a have a therapeutic effect on your mind. So, it is wise to buy frames and paintings to display them in your room.
