5 Ways to Decorate your Home During the Movement Control Order


People from all over the world are stuck at home due to the COVID-19 outbreak. With time to spare on our hands, why not put some of that time and energy into decorating the place you call home. Now is probably not the best time to go out for furniture shopping, but there are alternative ways you can decorate your house. Here are five ways you can breathe a little fresh air into your living space.

1. Declutter

The first step that will probably be the hardest to take is to declutter your space of all the things that do not have a significant value in your home. Most of the times, we hold on to items that aren’t necessary for our homes such as old furniture, unused home appliances and clothes in our wardrobe.

You’re probably thinking that you can save it for the future or that the item can come in handy one day but that time might not ever come. Take this time to finally clear out and downsize the number of unused items in your home and make a donation to a charity you care about.


2. Rearrange

Other than decluttering your space, you could try to rearrange the furniture that you own. The space in your home will look completely different just by a simple change-up of the arrangement of furniture. It might even look better if your bed is on the opposite end of the room or maybe it’s time for you to move your study table out of your room so that it’s not too cramped.

Try and play around with the furniture arrangement with the help of your family members. If you like the way the whole arrangement looks, perhaps you can change out the accessories or decorations to give it a fresh new look.



3. Apply a fresh coat of paint

If there is any leftover paint lying around in your house, why not paint the walls to breathe in new life into the room? Other than painting the walls, you can opt to paint items that look worn out or outdated.

Give your end table a brand new modern look by painting it a white colour or try adding a pop of colour to the photo frames and vases or flowerpots, this will liven up the entire atmosphere of the space.

4. Display meaningful memories

Decorate the living room with items that hold a special place in your heart — frame-up meaningful events or important milestones that you have gone through in your life. Display a gorgeous photo of your wedding by the beach or graduation day, this will add a uniquely personal touch to your living space and also acts as a conversation starter for when guests come and visit your home.

There are other ways to display your precious memories, if you’re a fan of the great outdoors then collecting seashells and placing them in a beautiful basket is also a great way to highlight mementoes.


5. Add elements of nature

If you feel like your house is looking a bit drab and dull, what you can do is inject your living quarters with something from the outdoors. Add in a couple of potted plants or even flowers to bring life into your boring and empty spaces.

If you’re worried that you do not have the time to take care of living plants, another option is to purchase fake plants.

With all this free time you have being at home, this is the best time to spruce up your home sweet home. But if you’re looking for professional help in decorating your home, MyKey Global has the expertise you need.
