Searching for easy ways to spruce up your abode? Here are some easy ways to transform a room, even with a small budget.
Window Treatments: Because windows are such a focal point, it pays to decorate them. It’s amazing what a simple curtain or valance can do to change the atmosphere of a room.
Paint It Up: Painting a room not only adds an air of freshness but can serve as a backdrop for your decorating ideas. If your home is on the market, your color choices are limited as its best to stick to neutral colors. If the home is one in which you plan to stay for some time, don’t be afraid to experiment with your favorite colors.
Lighting: Lighting is one of the decorating items most overlooked by many homeowners. Reading lamps, floor lamps and under-cabinet mounted strip lighting can all add beauty and function to your home. Large or unusual lighting can also become a room’s focal point. Tip: If you’re redecorating to sell your home, add more lighting. You can never have too much when a home is on the market.
Artwork: Artwork can be anything from antique plates to your grandmother’s handmade quilt. Mirrors, in groupings, or one dramatic piece can make a room appear larger. If a piece of art speaks to you, if you enjoy looking at it, then buy it. It doesn’t matter if it’s an inexpensive reproduction or an expensive original, art is a personal preference.
Also, commissioning artwork from a local artist is even closer than you think! Check out my wife’s paintings at KacieCarterAngell.com. If her artwork is something you like, she’d love to paint something special for you!
