Want to find other ways to give your home a lift? To help you, we have put together 5 of the best modern interior design ideas that you can try in your home. 

Create a feature wall
Want to refresh your home but short on money or time for decorating an entire room? Why not just focus on one wall in the room instead? Creating a feature wall is a great way to lift an entire room and it is relatively cheap and easy to do. You don’t even need to worry about paint, although that is possibly the simplest way to reinvent it, instead you could use wallpaper, particularly wallpaper that comes in a bold and bright pattern. Or even wall art such as paintings, pictures or other decorative wall hangings that are going to breathe new life into the room as a whole

Rearrange and organise the room
Interior design isn’t always about adding new things to a space. Sometimes, it is about rearranging and even taking things away. If you feel that one room needs a lift, then plan in the time to rearrange and organise the room. Not only will this help to make sure that the space looks neat and tidy, but you may also find that you have some pieces of furniture that you no longer need, or that could work better elsewhere in your home. Best of all, by taking the time to rearrange and organise the room, you are likely to be faced with a clean, neat and organised space that makes you feel a whole lot better. 

Think about the small touches
Sometimes it is the smallest of touches that can make the biggest impact. Soft furnishings not only make a space look and feel more comfortable, but they are also great from a style point of view too. Cushions, rugs, curtains and throws all can add colour, texture and a sense of style to a room with ease. They are cost effective and come in a real wealth of designs, not only this, but they are also completely portable, which means that you can move them around as and when you need to. 

Get creative with your furniture
If you are feeling particularly creative or crafty, then perhaps it is a good idea to try your hand at up-cycling. Up-cycling is when you take an old piece of furniture that is past its best and make it look completely different. Depending on the furniture that you pick this could come in the form of a lick of paint, a sand down and varnish or perhaps re-upholstering. Not only does upcycling allow you to get your hands dirty, and have the satisfaction of creating something yourself, it also allows means that you can save yourself some money too. 

Use mirrors to create space
Not only can mirrors be a decorative piece in your home, they can also be useful if you feel that your snug and cosy room has become more closed off and claustrophobic. What is great about mirrors is that they have a multitude of uses. Mirrors are great for creating the illusion of space, they reflect the light around any room and instantly make it feel and appear bigger and lighter. Not only this, but depending on the style, size or shape of mirror that you go for, you can also use it as a piece of wall art, which will give your room a truly stylish overhaul. 

So, there you have it, 5 ways that you can give your home a lift and make it look like the effortlessly modern and chic space that you long for. Why not try them out for yourself and see if you can make your home look just like those places that you see in the magazines?
