5 Design Ideas to Freshen Up Any Room
At Shutter Guy, we love to help our clients throughout the Charleston area brighten up their homes with new window treatments. New shutters, shades, blinds or drapery can change the entire look of your room with a fresh style and optimal light control. Other than window treatments, here are a few quick ideas to help you give any room a new look.
So “no” to clutter. Nothing diminishes the look of a room more than clutter. Clear the clutter by using crafty storage spaces for papers, mail, toys, coats, and other items that can give a room a disorganized messy feel.
Add an area rug. Use rugs to define a conversation area or add pizzazz to any room. Try placing your rug at an angle, such as under a coffee table, to help it stand out. Rugs are a great way to add a new color to any room, or freshen up otherwise dull floors.
Soften things up with fabric. Pillows add softness and depth to family rooms, living rooms, and bedrooms. Especially if you’re adding window toppers, choose complementary decorative pillows can add unique textures and patterns to a room. Custom fabric for your dining room chairs will instantly change the look and feel of your room.
Consider interior curtains. An interior curtain is a stylish way to divide two spaces — close it when you need privacy or want to conceal a space, open it with a beautiful tie-back when you want more openness. This fresh approach to room dividers softens a room and allows you to use large spaces in new ways.
Make the old new again. Consider items you already have, and think of ways to display them differently. For example, pull together all your vases of different sizes, shapes, and colors and make a display in the center of your table or on a buffet. Take a mis-match arrangement of plates and hang them on your wall to create one big piece of art.
Move furniture away from the walls. When you float furniture away from the walls, it creates more intimate seating and a more open feel. Use side tables and sofa tables to define spaces and make the space as functional as it is stylish.
