Diwali is around the corner, and we all are busy cleaning the nooks and crannies of our homes. The festival of lights means sprucing up our houses and getting them ready to welcome prosperity by worshipping Goddess Lakshmi.

However, elevating your home décor is not an easy task and requires some investment. Don’t fret because we have got you covered. This article mentions budget interior design ideas that will help you completely alter your living space to welcome guests and spread good vibes on Diwali. Take a look. 

Add Colours, Fragrance, & Freshness With Blossoming Flowers

The easiest way to elevate the interiors of any room is to add plants and flowers. Around Diwali, you can buy bouquets from vendors selling them on the streets, and you can find many in the market. 

People also pick marigold garlands and hang them around the house. Not only does it add colour, but the fragrance lightens up the mood. You can also get colourful flowers and add them to vases to decorate small and vacant corners.

Add Lights

Diwali means fairy lights. Though most people prefer to add fairy lights to decorate balconies and exteriors, they can also be used inside the house to spruce up windows, mirrors and walls.

Other than fairy lights, you can add artificial candles, chandeliers and other not-so-expensive light fixtures to improve interiors. There are glass bell jars, aesthetically pleasing lights and other options available on Amazon, Myntra and other e-commerce sites to help you elevate the space without spending heftily.

Add Accent To The Wall

If you are not interested in painting the entire house, you can simply add an accent to the room by painting a single wall. In the living room, most people either prefer to paint the wall behind the television or sofa in a different and brighter shade. 

This task does not require you to invest weeks and thousands into it. You can even do it yourself. Using DIY methods, you can create textures and instantly liven up any room.

Add Metallic Showpieces

Metallic showpieces have a rustic finish that adds a blend of elegance and traditional touch to an otherwise modern space. Moreover, there is no better time than Diwali to experiment with home décor.

If you have old large metallic vessels at home, you can place them around the corners and edges of the hallway, living room, corridor and balconies. Fill them with water, add flowers and petals and light diyas (earthen lamps) and candles in them.

Add Traditional Diwali Décor Items

Diwali seems incomplete without adding a new toran (ornamented and colourful strings added to the main doors and gates in the house) to the main gate. Much like that, you can decorate the temple at home.

A beautiful rangoli is another way to add colours to the space. You can either opt for powdered colours or flowers to craft a vibrant piece of art.

The easiest and most inexpensive way to add colours to the living room is by upgrading sofa furnishing. We are not talking about replacing old furniture with new. We are suggesting adding vibrant cushions, carpets and tablecloths.

You just have to decide on a colour palette according to the colour of the wall of your living room. Raw silk, mirror work and velvet cushions covers make the furnishing appear more colourful and welcoming.

One of the easiest ways to improve the interiors of the kitchen or dining room is to add tableware (homeware brands). If you have colourful crockery, tablecloth, napkins and some ceramic jars, arrange them nicely on the dining table. Not that it adds flavour to the food, but it introduces a fine dining experience at home.
