Decorating a home is always a great challenge, and it needs careful planning and good management skills at the same time. Are you tired of decorating your home with the same usual home decor ideas? Let’s change this entire concept and try decorating your home with different materials this year. Sounds great, doesn’t it? Here are 10 creative ways to give your home a perfect new look by using different materials.
1. Basic Natural Materials
Want to decorate your living room or bedroom by giving it a unique yet natural look at the same time? Try making a couple of gorgeous centerpieces or other decorative accessories using the branches of the trees and their bark. You can even use dried flowers or small pebbles to create a genius masterpiece.
2. Wooden Materials
Using dry wooden materials (for instance, tree stumps) is also a unique idea to decorate your home. These tree stumps can be used to make kitchen accessories or wall hangings in the living room or bedroom.
3. Seashells and Cones
Pine cones and small pebbles can be used as great home decor accessories, especially when it comes to decorating the main entrance of your home or your living room. Same goes for adding sea shells to your home decor. They not only give your home a beautiful and natural look but can also save you a lot of money that would’ve been spent on buying artificial home decor accessories.
4. Bamboo Materials
Bamboo materials are extremely durable and sustainable. This makes them best for decorating doors or using as room dividers. In recent years, adding traditional bamboo materials to home decor has become immensely popular since they can blend in with any kind of decor and look extremely stylish as well.
5. Ceramic Materials
If you are fond of glass painting, treat yourself by adding ceramic materials to your home decor. For kitchen doors or the main entrance, adding some painted ceramic or glass will look very chic.
6. Vintage-themed Materials
Adding unique vintage-themed decorative items to your home decor will make it look all-the-more perfect. You can add wooden centerpieces to your living room decor or old-fashioned, frilly bed comforters to your bedding. Additionally, having old book racks and rocking chairs can further add to the beauty of your home.
7. Plastic-free Materials
Instead of adding so many plastic materials to your home decor, try adding some beautiful containers or tins. You can choose the colors and themes to your liking to add colorful, decorative items to your home decor.
8. Paper Crafts
This is a relatively new home decor art which has become very popular among interior decorators across the world. With the help of paper crafting, you can create DIY paper lamps, a fruit basket for your kitchen or related decorative items that won’t cost you much.
9. Cardboard Boxes
With the help of cardboard boxes, you can create something for every room. You can use them in your kitchen cabinets or as jewelry boxes for the children’s room. Creating beautiful handmade crafts with the help of cardboard boxes will give your home a very unique and modern look.
10. Crochet Art
Nothing can beat the beauty and grace crochet art will bring to your home decor. Be it your living room cushions or bedding for your bedroom, if they are made up of crochet, they will stand out from the rest. Adding crochet art to your home decor is definitely a recommended idea to try.
