So, why not go the extra mile and do something creative this year? Redecorate her house, it will be the best gift for mother’s day.

Lighten up the house!
Lights can transform a room. It fulfills its purpose of illuminating dark corners and along with it, it also gives an illusion of a larger space. It affects moods and makes everything in the space – furniture, walls and people, look a hundred times better. Ditch the old tube light and lighten up her house with a combination of different lights – accent lights, floor lamps, and ceiling lights. Proper staging of lights will create a subtle play of the light and dark that will make a room look dreamy. For extra ambiance, you can add some candles too.
Don’t leave the walls vacant
Sometimes a handsome wall piece is all you need to add visual interest in a space. Vibrant wall plates, paintings, a colourful tapestry or a macrame will add a bright punch to a dull wall. To keep the focus on a single wall, you can paint stencils on it, hang quirky items like medallions, a doily collage, or make a wall mural. If your mom is fond of reading and has a lovely book collection, no gift can be better than adding a nice bookshelf in her house on this mother’s day. Floating shelves, wooden creates, and mountable ledges will make your walls look wonderful and are creative alternatives for the traditional book shelf.
Give the dining table a makeover
At some point, you must have thought about gifting crockery to your mom as a mother’s day gift. Why not put in a little more effort and give the dinner table a makeover?
