During the pandemic of 202o, we all spent a lot of time at home staring at the same walls, the same furniture, the same old picture frames, and naturally, many people found the urge to redecorate. Home improvement projects that had been put off for years all of a sudden started happening. Rooms were rearranged to create something new and fresh, because after staring at the same four walls day in and day out for months on end, we needed something to distract us.

But we needn’t wait for the next lockdown to give our homes a fresh new look. Actually, as Interiors in-house Senior Designer Rasha Abdou explains to us, “when it comes to interior design, it is often the little things that make the biggest statements. There are so many ways to make a big impact with small changes in your home. For some, choosing the perfect statement chair and nothing else is the only change necessary. For others looking to warm up their space, textural elements and a fresh take on color will transform their homes.”

Here are Abdou’s exclusive tips on how to make a big impact by adding small touches to your home.

1

Refresh Your Walls

If you’re looking for a small change with a big impact, you should change your wall colors. Going from a basic white to a cool gray, calming blue, or vibrant yellow can make a big difference in any room in your home. You can even create an accent wall by going with textured paint or wallpaper.

Another tip for refreshing your walls would be adding mirrors and artworks with different frames and colors, where it will surely emphasize your furniture and space.

Accessorize

Layering accessories with various finishes and materials is an excellent way to create a different look and feel to your space. Accessorize your coffee table, console, or your home office desk by adding flowers and accessories with different heights.

Lighting

Lighting is everything in interior design. Lights placed in the right spots can help to highlight some of the best features in a room. Table lamps, floor lamps, and ceiling lights in a matching style to your space make a huge impact on the room atmosphere.

Add Textures and Patterns

Adding pillows with different textures and patterns to a sofa can make a statement in a living room, and you can do the same in a bedroom. Along with that, area rugs are another way you can add to the aesthetic appeal to your home. They come in various sizes, colors, patterns, and shapes and they help to tie your home decor together.
