Everyone loves an organized space in the closet, kitchen, and even in the bathroom. Now that your space is functional, it's time to reward yourself and dress it up a bit. Below are some easy ways to decorate your organized space.
Know that the decor doesn't have to be expensive. It just attractive to the eye and it should not take away from the effectiveness of the area. Below I shared my favorite inexpensive ways to decorate our home organized spaces. I hope they help you too.
Ideas To Decorate Your Organized Space
Use a fabric piece to decorate a focal point on a wall.
I found fabric pieces and added them to the wall where I get ready in the morning in my closet. To find the focal point, open the door to the closet, and find the largest feature in the space. Use the fabric and attach it behind it. I found these tapestries on Amazon (affiliate).
Measure the width and height and take it with you to a fabric store, like JoAnn Fabric and Crafts. They have a variety of affordable home fabric remnants you can use for this purpose.
Below are some options on how to attach the fabric to the wall. I found these on Amazon.com (affiliate). However, the staff at JoAnn Fabric and Crafts would also know which one to use. They are very helpful there.

Use Designer Pattern Removable Adhesive Paper to protect and decorate inside and outside of cabinets and vanities.
We recently repainted our closet and I replaced the focal point area with a self- adhesive wallpaper.
We were even able to hide a dingy Ikea cabinet door with some self-adhesive removable decorative wallpaper in my daughter's room. Looks pretty, right?
Check out discount stores for various types of removable adhesive paper. Here is a link of one from Laura Ashley Self-Adhesive Shelf Liner which was discontinued. Also, places like Marshall's and Homegoods will have these items.

These are all great tips! I love how you hid the charging station with a decorative box! Decorating really helps to give everything a finished look!
I like decorating small spaces. It's less overwhelming to me. I've done the inside of our pantry, the inside of my closet, my laundry room. Do you see a theme? I am working my way up to large spaces!
The other thing that makes a room look fresh and completely different is paint. Even painting one wall in a different color (bold or subtle) can change the entire feel of a room. Out home is quite colorful, which isn't for everyone, but we love it. While there are many white walls, there are also spots of brightness- red, purple, yellow in different rooms.
I'm sort of like Janet, not particularly strong on decorating. I tend to like a "clean" look, but I have many pieces in my home that have accumulated over the years. If I had the money, I think I would get rid of a lot of it and start over. Alas, that isn't the case. Nice to have some ideas for adding just a touch of color or pattern that might jazz up a space!
Decorating isn't a strong point for me, but you've reminded me that I'd like to put up some kind of backsplash behind my kitchen sink. Thanks for the inspiration!
