You’ve just purchased a studio from Aarons Outdoor Living and had it installed. The next step is to have the interior furnished and decorated. But with so many options, where do you even start? Don’t worry, Aarons has got you covered.
Here are 10 ways you can give the interior of your studio a makeover:
1. Make your own furniture and decor
If you’re into D.I.Y. then this is perfect for you! Making your own furniture and decor is a great way to save a few dollars.
There are unlimited options to what you can transform your backyard studio into. For a small project, consider a DIY coffee table. You don’t even need to be particularly creative or hands-on to do this. Think about recycling products you already own, such as an indoor trash can. Simply give it a new coat of paint, turn it upside down, and you’ve got a cute side table.
If you’re going to use your studio as an outdoor home office, adding plants is a must. Having plants in the office have been proven to increase both happiness and productivity. There’s really no excuse not to add one! Either grow your own, or head to your local garden store and pick up a pot plant or two. Just don’t forget to water it!
You probably have books lying around your house. Why not display them in your outdoor studio? Books can be a great space-filler when you don’t want to shell out lots of money. There are plenty of ways you can decorate with books. You can purchase or even make your own bookshelf or mantle. For something simple, add a stack of books to an empty space or a corner, or use them to give other items, such as lamps, some extra height.
Make your studio feel completely personal with some paintings. This is a cheap and easy way to brighten up a room, no matter what the use is. If you’re particularly artistic, you can grab some paint and a brush and create your own painting. If not, pick up a cheap paintings or canvas. This is a simple way to give your studio some colour and change the mood of the room.
5. Corner desk
If your studio is being used as a home office or a study space, it’s a necessity to have a desk. You don’t always have to shell out the big bucks and buy a huge desk that takes up too much space. Sometimes the best option is smaller. Consider purchasing a corner desk, or turn a small, traditional desk into a room feature. They don’t have to be fancy, but sometimes a desk can completely compliment a room.
6. Light fittings
Installing some light fittings is a simple way to give your studio that wow factor. You can pick up cheap light fittings, or if you’re creative and have got a bit more patience, consider making your own light fittings. Some options include plastic spoon or hanger light fittings, or even drum or gummy bear chandeliers. Let your creativity shine and make some completely original light fittings.
No matter what you’re using your studio for, simple shelving is a great decorative option. If your studio is an office or study area, shelves are a helpful storage area for books, papers, and notes. If it is more of an entertainment area, you can store cutlery, pots or pans. They can even be purely decorational and be full of photographs and various personal trinkets.
To give your studio a bit more colour, consider adding a rug. This can complement the colour scheme of the rest of your studio. Rugs are a great option when you don’t want to put carpet in the studio, but you need some extra warmth or colour.
9. Over-the-door organisers
When you’ve got a lot of clutter that you can’t get rid of, then it’s best to consider an over-the-door organiser. These plastic hangers won’t even break the budget – they can be purchased for under $10. These don’t have to be used for just shoes! You can make over your studio by filling sections with things for the office, such as cables or stationery. This will give you more space on your desk and will mean you can easily find items you need.
Candles are a simple way to add a bit of decor to any studio, especially if it is being used as an entertainment area at night. Choose a scent you like and you’ll enjoy spending time in your studio.
These decorations are sure to give your studio a bit of extra wow factor, and best of all, they won’t even break the bank.
