Having access to space that you can design to your own wants and desires is a beautiful opportunity to let out your internal interior designer. It may not be blatantly obvious to you that you possess this talent but you do! It does not take a lot to transform a room into a beautiful and welcoming area. Try out these tips and notice an immediate change in the atmosphere and allure of your room.
Spruce It Up With Shutters
A room with large windows definitely demands to be outfitted with shutters. A certain level of character and charm is added to a home where these can be seen. Curtains serve to block light from entering your window but shutters allow more natural light through. If you find that too much light comes through, simply adjust the panels or individual tiers. This works great for maintaining privacy as well.
The shutters are made with the highest quality wood and assembled with special techniques that are designed to maintain the solid nature of the structure. In addition to regulating light and unwanted attention, they help with insulation, keeping the cool air in when it’s hot, and letting the hot air out when you need to cool down. Get these easy-to-clean alternatives to curtains and blinds and notice a stark change in your room.
Perfectly Dress The Walls
This may be done with paint or with cool wallpaper. The colors on the walls greatly impact the mood of the room. For light and airy go with lighter colors, pearls, or pastels. For a more dramatic feel, heavier and richer colors will get the job done. Fun and funky wallpapers can bring more fun into the room. Ensure your color selection matches whatever theme you may be going for.
With the walls taken care of, you can have a blast choosing accent pillows, rugs, and blankets. Extra pops of color bring life and add varying textures to space. Everything should flow easily and work together to enhance the ambiance.
Select A Focal Piece
Doesn’t matter what room, something should instantly draw the eyes of anyone walking in. In the dining room, you might want to consider a chandelier. The sheer majestic nature of the structure, paired with the light elements is sure to capture attention. A Persian rug, a canopy bed, a bold painting, a beautiful verdant plant, or a flower bouquet. Style the room according to your preference. Be sure not to add too many items that fight each other for the spotlight. Sometimes less is indeed more.
Respect The Layout Of The Room
Work with the room, don’t fight it. Know the square footage of the floor so you can be certain how much surface area you have to work with. Get comfortable with the layout of the area. Choose furniture that complements its angles. This way you maximize space. Strive for symmetry. A room that is not perfectly square or rectangular is not a lost cause. Get creative. Try equally quirky furniture. Construct wall shelvings. Accessorize with lights. The opportunities you have to convert this room into something amazing are endless.
Carefully Select Lighting
You may think that all lighting is made equal. This is very much not the case. The brightness and hue of the lighting you choose should match the function of the room. Striving to feel upbeat and excited, blue-toned lights will help with that. Research has proved that this kind of light lifts mood and fosters greater positivity. In the bedrooms, installing light fixtures which can be dimmed to shower the room with a softer and gentler light is important in promoting relaxation and sleep. Layer different kinds of lights to have a multi-functional space.
Lights can also help to make a small room feel larger. Positioned to a higher placement on walls, lights can give the effect of more space. Accent and ceiling lights give an extra enchantment to a room. Depending on the light bulb you choose, light can be directed in a focal manner or diffused across the entire area.
You see, revamping your rooms to give a more stunning appearance is not a difficult task. With a little time and patience to get to know the space and to visualize your many ideas, you will come to a new level of enjoyment. Lights, plants, paint jobs, and shutters are just a handful of things you can pay extra attention to in order to heighten the beauty of every room of your home. Take on these upgrades alone or with some friends and then sit back and marvel at what you have managed to create.
