Give Your Home A Diwali Makeover
The season of lights is here, which means it’s time for your home to get that annual touch-up. Houses are often the centre of all activity during this time and beautifying them is more of a ritual than a habit.
During Diwali, there isn’t a soul who doesn’t look forward to seeing the entire street lit up. But the lights outside won’t help your overall decor if your interiors are shabby. You’d best make sure your home is all spruced up and clean to avoid some major side-eye from the goddess Lakshmi this Diwali.
All you need for the perfect home renovation project is some elbow grease and your creative juices flowing! Here are some great tips to help you out:
The Living Room Makeover
Upgrading your home furnishings for Diwali is a great way to add colour and character to your rooms. As the rule goes, curtains can make a room, but only if they’re chosen well. So begin your renovation by looking for new curtains for the living room. While choosing them, keep in mind both the colour and the fabric. Faux silk is generally considered one of the most durable fabrics though cotton works just as well. The lining on curtains ensures their longevity and also helps block light better, so if your living room gets a lot of light, choose your curtains accordingly.
Once you’ve picked out your curtains, you can make your living room cosier with a carpet or a rug. The soft fabric makes the entire room seem more inviting and comfortable, and you can really set the mood of the space with the colours you choose. Most rugs and carpets available are conveniently made of polyester, which is both eco-friendly and stain resistant. Win-win!
Finish refurbishing your living room by picking out cute, patterned cushion covers to accent and instantly update your sofas. There is such a thing as too many throw pillows, so try not to go overboard.
Linen It Up
Seeing as we spend nearly a third of our lives sleeping, you should definitely take the opportunity this Diwali to get new bed linens. When picking out your new sheets, make sure to get the right size. Don’t mix up the singles with the doubles!
Linen is a great way to add a little splash of personality to your room, so go as crazy as you like with prints and colours. Above all, your sheets must be comfortable, and cotton sheets ensure this in just about any climate.
