Do you ever wonder how you can make your house more spacious? How to make things look neater? Or how to turn your house into a home?

Before you can truly settle into a house, you have to decorate it. Unfortunately, developing your décor can be a hassle, especially after a big move, but thankfully you’re not alone. Here are some nifty hacks you can try to help your house look and feel even more like home!

Does your guest room or office space seem just a tad too small? No worries! Just place a decorative mirror behind a lamp. This will create the illusion of a larger space and brighten up the room.

#2

Use command hooks to easily hang curtain rods. This is an incredible easy and inexpensive way to add some personality to a drab window, while not doing any damage to your walls.

In the summer having clunky fans in your house can ruin your décor, so a quick and easy way of sprucing up your fan is just by decorating it with tape and ribbons. This is such an easy and fun way of making an unfortunate summer appliance into a cool decoration.

Disco balls may seem a bit extreme as a decoration, but you can mirror its effect easily on any regular lampshade. All you need is to grab some glitter and paint the inside of the lampshade for a cool reflective light effect. Another option is to poke holes into a dark lampshade for a super cool starry effect.
