Who wouldn’t love to give his/her home a fresh new look? It is not necessarily to be an expensive proposition by replacing a lot of things and repainting of walls. Rather a few small changes or additions and re-positioning of heavy furniture can bring about a great impact. It could be the addition of a mirror, a painting, a lamp, or a plant. Maybe a little toning with the room will prove to be a great move to get more harmony and warmth. Take a tour of these design tips to get more insights.
Small rooms have tendencies to seem full and cramped, but the large windows, light-colored walls, and ample use of mirrors not only reflect the natural light pouring in from the doors and the windows but the use of mirrors also gives the optical illusion of space, making the room seem larger than it actually is. Conversely, darker shades make a room seem more compact and smaller. Even the strategic placement of the mirrors also doesn’t help much.
Mirrors are used to make the small space feel larger. For larger rooms or any room with a more limited amount of natural light, mirrors placed directly across from the windows will add instant light. Decorative mirrors can also be used in lieu of art to fill empty wall space. Large or small, mirrors add light and dimension to your living space.
It is quite natural and never wrong to place family heirlooms alongside your modern furniture. After all, it is your home and you value your tradition and background. Your past may have many memories and experiences attached to that old furniture and you just can’t throw them away for the sake of decoration. Very well, you need not to, but there should be harmony between the old and new.
To give your room a makeover- Slipcovers are truly wonderful things to produce a great new look effect in your room even if you don’t change anything else. They can serve as a means of changing your furniture’s look to reflect the seasons. These easily removed coverings allow you to have a sophisticated look without constantly worrying about people dirtying or spilling on your furniture.
Wicker baskets and trays may be used as an economical and decent way to add storage to your room. Baskets can be used to store and display books, architectural and decor magazines, toys, towels, and blankets to name a few. Place a couple of small wicker baskets on the countertops in your kitchen to beautifully display and store your fruit and vegetables.
We can make use of some of our old and rejected items to decorate our homes. They might turn out to be unusual but beautiful options to decorate blank spaces. Instead of running to the store, take a good look at what you already have. Trays, wooden, acrylic, metal, or silver can be placed on top of luggage racks, tea carts, trunks, bedside tables, and coffee tables for extra texture and dimension. Arrange candles on them, frames, or pile books on top of them. Plates can be hung to create wonderful wall art. Art from children’s books can be framed and hung in nurseries, children’s rooms, or their bathrooms. You will be amazed at what you can do with what you already have!
The kitchen is equally important as any other room in your home. It must be designed to accommodate all useful accessories and yet provide enough space for you. Use of wall and tabletop with portable or fixed type light metal baskets, trays, or hanging pot racks add usefulness and elegance. Also, they are great space savers because they free up a lot of space in the cupboard as well. They come in many styles and sizes.
