Decorating your home can often seem to be a tedious and time consuming task. Busy work schedules, children’s extramural activities and busy social lives prevent us from putting time and effort into our homes. The burden of a complete interior overhaul can seem daunting and even impossible. However, with these four quick and easy decorating ideas you can transform your space into something extraordinary with minimal effort.

1. Lighting: An uncomplicated yet effective way to transform the look and feel of a room can be achieved through simply changing the lighting in a room. Swap conventional lighting for interesting shades and fixtures. Consider lighting up dark corners and utilizing floor and table lamps for added warmth.

2. Artwork: There is perhaps no easier way to transform a bare wall than by hanging a beautiful piece of art. Not only does the art you choose to hang reflect your personality and style, it is also the ideal way to inject character into the space and tie the look and feel of a room together.

3. Upholstery: Quality furniture can be costly and a beautiful set of sofas and armchairs can be considered an investment piece. However, a piece of furniture or lounge suite you bought several years ago may become weathered, out of style, or begin to clash with the aesthetic you are trying to create. Instead of forking out an exorbitant amount on furniture, breathe life into your existing pieces by reupholstering or investing in a few different sets of loose covers, or even throws.

4. Patterned walls: Rather than paint an entire room in a colour you may grow tired of and have to repaint, consider breathing life into a room by painting a single wall in a bold shade. Alternatively, patterned wallpaper is easy to apply and remove, awarding you various possibilities for transformation.
