Think your home needs an update? Or simply love switching up the look of your place? These no-reno ideas let you experiment as often as you like.

  1. Grow a plant wall
    Plant creepers like morning glory or Japanese honeysuckle, and let them climb up a fence or even a scarf hanger to add a bit of greenery to the room.

  2. Refresh your bookcases
    Place removable wallpaper against the back of your shelves for a peek of colour and pattern when the cupboard is filled with items. To remove the covering easily, apply gentle heat (a hairdryer helps) to soften the adhesive. If taken off carefully, you could even reuse the paper.SquareRooms-wallpaper
  3. Switch up your flooring
    Made mostly from renewable products including linseed oil, wood flour and pine rosin, the slats come in various colours that can be mixed and clicked together without any glue. The flooring is anti-static and microbial, preventing dust and germs from triggering your allergies.

  4. Repurpose old furniture
    Once in a while, rearrange your furnishings to add a sense of newness to the place. You could also find different functions for existing pieces, like using stools or benches as display and side tables.

  10. Play with decals
    Removable adhesive patterns are easy to use, make a big impact and usually don’t cost much. Use them to highlight design details, or be bold and apply them across the wall.
