Creative home decor ideas to try over the lockdown

The Covid-19 induced lockdown has been a part of our lives since early 2020. With all the time we are spending at home, it’s a good idea to redecorate, that too without buying any new products. Even simple re-arrangements can make your home look like a whole new space. Here are some ideas to try:

Change the Layout

Pick a room you would like to redecorate. Then switch up the movable items in the room, like furniture, bookshelves, chairs or units. You can either move these within the same room or to different parts of the house. Once you do, the room will be a whole new place and you might even have some extra space!

Revamp your Balcony

During the lockdown, home gardens and balconies are a place of respite. If you have one, use this time to decorate it. Add your favourite plants, replace old furniture with fluffy floor pillows, or add color with an outdoor rug perhaps. If you don’t have a balcony or patio you can decorate your windowsill with planters, vines and creepers, and add fairy lights or candles for a fanciful touch.

Rebuild Spaces

Be it the dining space, the balcony, or living room, everything can be transformed to give you volume, outdoor views, and an interactive ethos. To improve the functionality of these spaces, start small. Use color-coding of stationery, souvenirs, and indoor plants. Reorganise accessories and include art to renew the perception of spaces. Having an innovative and personal touch is what is really needed. Experiment with your existing spaces to push their boundaries.


There’s no better time to declutter your home. Clearing corners of your room and removing things you no longer use has a significant effect on the interiors. Make it a fun activity to do with your loved ones and spend time going through your things and refreshing each others’ memories. Once you finish, the house will feel as good as new.

Create a Workspace

Working from home has ensured we all have a work desk at home, but how many of us like ours? Make yours better: pick a corner that has good natural light. No matter how big or small your designated workspace is, choose one that overlooks trees or the sky. A good view makes the space a personal sanctuary rather than a place for professional toil. At The Palette by Suraj there are high ceilings that can make your workspace look magnificent.
