3 Clever Decorating Cover-Ups

Is there something you don’t love about your home but don’t have the time or budget to change it right now? Don’t feel alone, most people are in the same boat. But how do you deal with these things you don’t love? You can A) just live with them as is or B) uniquely cover them up. Read on as I discuss 3 clever decorating strategies to help cover-up the parts of your home you don’t love!

#1. Hardware

Don’t love your kitchen or bathroom cabinets but can’t get new ones? What about your dressers, end tables, doors, etc? Solution: Hardware. Replacing the hardware can totally transform a space for a fraction of the cost of replacing these big items. The objective is to coverup what you don’t love right now and bring the attention to the new hardware. Go bold or colorful with small projects or timeless and beautiful with big projects like a kitchen. The best part is that the new hardware can easily be used again once you actually replace the bigger items. Definitely a win-win!

#2. Rugs

Maybe you don’t like your flooring situation in your home—whether the carpet is old or the stain of the wood floors aren’t your favorite. Whatever it is, rugs can help cover them up. They won’t necessarily hide the flooring but they can help distract from what you don’t like and bring the attention to a new rug you actually like. Rugs can be pretty expensive but if you search you can find some great options at decent prices.

#3. Large Artwork

I absolutely love big art because they take up a lot of wall space and create a beautiful focal point in a room. If you don’t love your wall color and aren’t ready to paint or if you don’t love your couch but can’t replace it now, try large artwork on the wall as a cover-up. The artwork will take the attention off of what you don’t love and redirect the attention to something new, big and exciting on the wall.
