Electricity might be something we are all thoroughly accustomed to using in our day-to-day lives, but whether you know many particularly creative ways of weaving it into home décor is another matter.
If your home is looking a little tired, or you are considering selling it but want to first make it more appealing to potential buyers, here are just a few home improvement ideas you could try. With each of these ideas, one noteworthy aspect is a somewhat unorthodox use of electricity…
Install an electric fireplace
Ideal Home enthuses: “Electric fireplaces come in a variety of stylish designs, and can instantly make your home feel more modern.”
Choosing to buy an electric fireplace online would enable you to especially easily choose from many different designs for it — from small and portable units to grand inserts. You can even place an online order for an electric fireplace suite!
In their ability to heat a room both quickly and efficiently, electric fireplaces also outclass traditional wood-burning fireplaces.
Create a multifunctional media wall
This could even be installed above an electric fireplace, if you indeed opt for one. Key to the beauty of a media wall is that they can be designed and assembled in a bespoke fashion, allowing you to put together a solution that would be able to accommodate your particular media consumption habits.
A bespoke media wall can consist of a flatscreen TV fitted into the wall, and can also leave you space to keep multimedia appliances like games consoles and speaker bars within ready reach.
Set up a ‘smart home’
Installing smart home technology is one of many things Country Living suggests you could do to “make your home look and feel luxurious”.
Furthermore, it would be an easier project for you to take on than you might have assumed, since you probably already have at least one smart device — like a smartphone or tablet — you would be able to use as the ‘remote control’ for your smart home.
There are various types of devices — including lights, locks, and thermostats — that can be bought in ‘smart’ form, allowing them to be controlled remotely and even automated.
Put up festoon and string lights
Certain walls in your home could often be too dark to be used to their full potential. This walls’ gloominess could be due to them either having been painted in a dark color or instead sitting in consistently shadowy areas — but, in either instance, you could illuminate those surfaces in creative ways.
One good idea would be to decorate these walls with festoon and string lights before clipping photos and postcards onto them to make for a vibrant new display.
Put up a gallery wall complete with wall lights
Real Homes explains: “Incorporating a gallery wall into your room design is the easiest way to break up an all-white scheme, creating a space with greater depth and interest.”
The site has also posted a photo of one brilliantly quickly-looking gallery wall where wall lights resembling wall plates have been affixed.
