1. Get rid of wooden banisters

You can get rid of wooden banisters used as handrails and exchange them with ropes. You can choose from several options, such as jute, cotton, lead, or manila. All you need to do is anchor the brackets and then use ropes instead of wooden railings. You can also unravel the ends of the ropes to give a much classy look. Besides the option for the types of ropes, you also get to choose from different colors. Choose the one that matches your wall color to blend it perfectly.

2. Hang your flower vases

Instead of having the flower cases on tables or ground, hang them. The best thing is that you can hang them anywhere across the house, be it indoors or outdoors in the garden area. The only thing to take care of is that they should be getting enough sunlight. Use any hangings and let the flower cases dangle on them. Keep changing the water and see your plants grow in front of you.

3. Install wall-mounted easel

Do your kids write too much on the walls? Well, you don’t have to stop them. Instead, you can encourage them to show their creativity, but not on the walls. Wall-mounted easels are the best way to prevent your walls from getting painted. At the same time, you can also give your house-walls an amazing new look crafted by the artists at your home. You can also opt for having them painted by professional artists, just in case.

4. Make use of those wine glasses

You might have wine glasses at home, at least some old ones. Why not use them to decorate your house? There’s not much to do. All you need is a small LED lamp bead, a wine glass, and some colored paper. Put the LED bead in the wine glass and cover it with the papers to make your room shine bright. You can use them at the dinner table to enjoy the essence of candlelight dinners. Alternatively, you can also have them on rooftops or lawns.

Craft some paper designs and attach them to any wall. Alternatively, you can also use colorful tapes and stick them on the walls.

9. Layer your lighting

Install multiple lighting types and layer them to create a well-balanced and lit house.
