You need not to worry as though you may not be an interior designer but you can always change how your room’s interior looks and give it fresh and positive vibes. If you want to change the way your space looks, you can do the following:


Lighting is the most important element of any decor. With proper lighting you can give your room a special look. It not only increases the aesthetic appeal of the room but also creates the mood and ambience of the place. It creates a comfortable environment in the room. Choosing the proper lighting fixtures is the key to enhance the glorious and elegant style of your space. For example, you can use ambient lighting to enhance the radiance of your room. On the other hand, accent lighting can be used to show an art piece or a photograph.


If your place looks monotonous you need to add some greenery to it. It will give a soothing feel to your room. They too have an aesthetic appeal. They will illuminate your space. You can use large plants they will create a statement, while small plants can be planted in attractive pots and can be put anywhere right from the table to window sills. Besides this they will help you to lower down your blood pressure and make you calmer. They can help you stay more focused and increase your productivity. Lilies, English ivy, Areca palm, Jade, rubber fig, Wandering Jew etc can be used in revamping your interiors.


Rugs decide the look and feel of your room. They are actually the gamechangers. In order to give a feel of connectedness or belonging you must use a rug as per the theme of your room. You can use rugs to create a pathway from room to corridor, else you can also use them to add character and warmth to room and hallway. You can use rugs to connect different spaces, for doing this you can use identical styles or identical colored rugs at the connecting places.

The right art

The key to add some variety to the interior of your room is adding a beautiful piece of art to it.  Art shows our creativity and imagination. It adds colour to the room. You can also use a perfect art piece as the decisive object for the color combination of your theme. For example, you chose a painting, now you can make it a focal point all the decor in your room right from lighting to various tiny decorative objects and even the colour scheme of your room will revolve around that. So if you really want to work on the interiors of your place, get a beautiful artwork.


They are the most important aspect in redesigning your room. If you want to attain a specific statement and style, textile has a huge role to play. It also adds colour to the room. From upholstery to cushion covers, textiles have a large share in interior designing. You can use silk, rayon, leather and nylon as per your need. They also give tones and textures to the room. If your room is not lit properly you must use the warmer tones and light colour fabrics to bring more light and creating a welcoming space. On the other hand, if your room is sunny or clear you can play with cold tones in the fabric and darker colours.

This was all about how you can renovate your room, without an interior designer. Before trying your hands at this, make yourself familiar with the amount of space you have, what style you want, and de-clutter the space, then only you will be able to figure what exactly you need to do.
