Home Decorating Tips
Spring is the perfect time to tackle some of the home cleaning projects you have been putting off all winter. It can also be the perfect time to change the look and feel of a room. Get your home looking perfect with these easy decorating tips.
Find the focal point
Before you start reorganizing a room stand back and take a look for the focal point. Is there a feature that naturally draws attention such as a fireplace or a large scenic window? Consider decorating the room to highlight this feature. You could position the chairs or sofa so they face the focal point and complement them with small end tables. Adding a decorative touch like artwork or a decorative mirror could make the focal point stand out even more.
Less is more
Sometimes a small change can make a big difference. Rather than replacing an old couch, consider reupholstering it. The new cover allows you to change the look of the furniture and can save you money. You could also try adding a splash of new color by replacing the decorative pillows. This is a quick, easy and affordable way to change up a room.
If a room feels washed out try bringing in extra light. A new lamp or brighter light bulbs can make a room feel warmer and more inviting, but be careful not to use a bulb with a higher wattage than the lamp allows. Replacing heavy drapes around windows with sheer curtains can let in more light and change the look and feel of the room.
Tackle the clutter
Little odds and ends can take up space and detract from the sense of order in a room. Decorative baskets are a great way to contain clutter. Place them onto bookshelves for a neat and effective way to maintain your things. You should also think outside the box and try unused vases or dishes as storage solutions.
