Here we take a look at four cool ways you can get decorating your room today.
Special pillow covers
Pillows and cushions are amazing things: they keep you comfy when you are relaxing at home and they can add some flair to your room. That’s why they are a great place to start when it comes to decorating. Gaming throw pillows come in all different designs and shapes, so no matter what your favorite character or game is, there will be something to suit your taste and space.
These days there are delivery subscription boxes for just about everything – food, clothing, films – and now gaming too. Services like Lootcrate mean that you can get wearable items, comics, and all kinds of household decorations delivered to your door every month. This means you’ll never be short on new things to hang up, wear out, or present in your room.
Calendars are fun, practical and highly customizable, making them perfect for room decorating. With so many opportunities to place images of your favorite characters on each month and add notes to different days, your options are endless. If you’re going to get a wall calendar printed, just get it done professionally and choose from a range of different finishes – be it glossy or matte – for the best look for your room. No one wants to see some poorly made calendar!
Figurines are not only a fun thing to own but they can give your room a whole new look and feel. There are always a ton of new designs coming out based on all your favorite games and characters, so getting a few new ones is always a good option. Create a specific area of your room where you can put them all in formation for maximum effect. Figurines from Funko are perhaps the most popular these days, with figurines from DC, Marvel, Nintendo and just about everything in between.
