Unique Design Ideas for Your Home

If you find that you have a nice bit of extra cash left over each month, the notion of home design is likely at the forefront of your mind. Although whilst redecorating your home or choosing new objects to be put in it may have once manifested themselves in a visit to Ikea, there are far more interesting, individual things you can do to your home to give it a spruce-up, many of which are far cheaper than the norm. Here are some of our favourite ideas.

Innovative Lighting
Coming up with ways to liven up the lighting in your home can be pretty difficult when all you have to play with are run of the mill lampshades, but thinking outside of the box can yield some excellent ideas. This chandelier that makes one's home look like it's in the middle of a forest and is an individual yet classy choice, and these amazing, beautiful sculptured shades from Radiance Lighting make rooms look classic and innovative at the same time.

Retro Fun
If you're a fan of 1950s design, then including a pinball table, jukebox or vintage slot machine in one of your rooms could be a great idea. Consider the chic style of croupier tables or even a roulette table – we even had one reader writing into us to explain how they transformed their spare room after being inspired by the live casino games online at Betsafe. Taking a little inspiration from the website, this resourceful interior designer turned a little extra space into a fun games room that wouldn’t look out of place in Vegas – you can create your own with these beautiful casino chairs from Amazon.

Second-Hand Economy
As a rule of thumb for any prospective designer; second hand and charity shops are an absolute goldmine when it comes to finding fun, interesting pieces for your home. Whilst it might take a little bit of effort, travelling to and trawling through a number of stores, chances are you'll find all manner of wonderful pieces of furniture, ornaments and accoutrements that you pop in whichever room you're updating.

Exciting Art
Throw away those cheap, mass-produced works - there are far better things out there that you can hang on your walls! Head online to an online poster retailer such as AllPosters.co.uk and have a browse. Sites such as these host millions of artworks, well-known and rare, that fit any home or taste, and what's more you can get just the artworks themselves shipped to you, ready to be popped into picture frames you likely found whilst rummaging through all of those second hand shops!
Vintage chic is very much en vogue at the moment, and thanks to the explosion in hipster fashion having drawn out a huge number of vintage antiques and furnishings into stores across the country, there's a huge volume of stuff to choose from - get out there and find those bargains!
