Find out how small paraphernalia can uplift your home, making it elegant and beautiful, writes K S Someswara

Interior decoration is a part of every homemaker. Sometimes home décor may be expensive and on some other occasions even small things can add to the beauty of interiors. Everything depends on the taste of the individuals. Generally, people prefer framed paintings, which can be hanged on walls according to one’s taste.

These are available in many forms, which are affordable. Even murals are an option. However, these may require a large space and involve extra expenses and also require extra care and time for up keep. Here are some out of the box home décor ideas.

If one has the habit of collecting figurines, they become the best items for interiors. They can be placed in open shelves on a wall or on a corner step stand. They can also be placed in chosen groups so that they represent a theme. Small statues can find a place at different corners without cluttering the area. Large statues of Buddha or Radha-Krishna or Ganesha are ideal for places like balconies or open gardens.

Even small tables or coffee table can be altered into an artwork. A small work of carpentry can be placed on the canvas of your drawing/artwork, which becomes a designer table-top. This table top can be covered with suitable transparent glass. Even painted glass tops can beautify the otherwise plain table. A decorative coffee table can add an interesting look to the living room or a sit-out in the balcony.

If one loves wall paintings, the living room wall can act as a good canvas. These days, it is a raging trend to paint one of the four walls with a contrasting colour. Instead, this wall can be adorned with bright oil painting. It can be any landscape art or a favourite photograph or a picturesque scenery. This will surely give the living room a rich and cosy look.

Beds with headboards will have an elegant look. It is preferred that the headboard be separate from the bed. An abstract painting hung few inches above the bed can make the bedroom seem cool and dreamy. Screen shot is another option. To have this, a double-sided painting or a printed or embroidered fabric is a must.

Even a wooden screen frame with an opaque base and glass top can be a great value adder.

Thus framed paintings on the wall and pretty sculptures and figurines on side table are good ideas for interior decoration. If more time and money is spent along with some of your own unique ideas you can decorate your house more imaginatively, to make it look elegant and also aesthetically designed.
