By Dipti Nair
Want to spruce up your home in time for your new year party? You could visit the many home décor stores in Qatar to find the ideal conversation starter. Or else, you could browse through Qatar Living Classifieds where you are sure to find pre-owned, décor items that can add that extra charm to your living room. We have checked on Qatar Living Classifieds and found plenty of bargain buys that can change the look of your home at a fraction of the cost. But, as always, maintain caution when you deal with an independent seller and whenever possible check the product in person to avoid getting duped.
So if you believe one man’s trash can be another man’s treasure, read on.
If you are looking for economical wall art then you have to check Qatar Living Classifieds, where you can find many types of paintings and pictures to adorn your walls. You can find everything from original acrylic paintings on canvas to digital prints and portraits. Choose the pieces that will best suit your walls and the rest of the furniture and you can instantly change the feel of your room.
Buying new frames can be quite an expensive affair. But you can always get pre-owned frames for a much lower cost. Many-a-time you will find unattractive paintings or prints mounted in beautiful frames. Grab it up. You can dispose of the picture and use the frame to house your photographs or paper souvenirs or anything that needs to be framed and give it a place of pride in your home.
Pots and vases can add on to the aesthetic of your home. Whether you fill them with beautiful fresh or fake flowers or display them as decorative objects, vases give a lovely finishing touch to any room. Arrange a single vase as a statement piece on your table or group a bunch of them in a corner, with pre-owned vases, you will have many options to mix and match and create your unique style.
Add some freshness to your interior décor using live plants. The greenery is not only aesthetically pleasing and makes your living space look nice and bright but having plants in the house also has many health benefits including boosting wellbeing and reducing stress. At Qatar Living Classifieds, you will find lots of well-cared and healthy indoor and outdoor plants to choose from.
Mirrors are versatile and can be used to increase the natural light and maximizing the sense of space in your rooms. Mirrors can also be treated as artwork and add an element of glamor to your interior design. Instead of splurging on a new mirror, go for a pre-owned one, and you can get the same level of style at a lower cost.
Little trinkets and knick-knacks can elevate your room aesthetics. Opt for pre-owned décor showpieces that will be lighter on your pocket and will still add the same look to your room. Another advantage of buying pre-owned knick-knacks is that at times you might find some very unique pieces that may have originated in another country and are not available to purchase locally.
Adding table or floor lamps to your room can create a warm and cozy ambiance. Change any corner into a reading-nook with a perfectly-positioned table lamp. Mix and match different lighting options to create the ambiance you are looking for. Use an LED light with your pre-owned lamp and you can save on your Kahramaa bills as well.
Qatar has many talented artists. You can many-a-time find original, hand-worked art works created by these artists on sale at Qatar Living Classifieds. These paintings, sculptures or other art works will be one-of-a-kind and will definitely be great conversation starter. And who knows, if the artist gains recognition and fame in the future, the value of the artwork may increase, turning it into a potential masterpiece and a valuable asset.
Smart watches may have taken over our world, but they cannot truly wipe out the charm of clocks. Clocks are not just attractive wall décor but they are also functional and can be fit in any room in the house. Opting for a pre-owned clock can offer an opportunity to get unique, vintage pieces that add character to your space.
