Simple Tips To Improve Your Interior

Dec-18-2010 By creatingyourspace

Does your interior need a lift? Not sure how to improve areas? There are simple tips that can uplift any room. Read along and experiment on your most problematic room or space. You will be surprised how tweaking one thing can lead to incredible results.

Fabrics and upholstery have the power to give the “just re-decorated” look without having to actually redecorate. Buy brightly colored accent pillows, or recover the ones you have. Fresh, plump accent pillows act as a face-lift for any worn sofa or chair. Fabrics also have the power to create warmth, drama, elegance and variety to any room.

Window treatments allow you to control light, give privacy and improve insulation. They can also help alter appearances of a room. Wish you had a higher ceiling? Install full-length panels higher above the top of a window. If you don’t want wall showing in between, you can add a valance that only hangs down an inch or so past the top of a window. Panels and valance combined make a window look higher than it actually is. Treatments made of dressy fabric add elegance. Casual fabric gives a room a comfortable feel. Different types of blinds also have the power to create the mood of your choice. Bamboo shades lend an exotic feel to a space. White plantation shutters add a classic look to any window.

Try out one or all of the tips above! You have the ability to uplift any space!

    Some old houses have a hidden room that no one knows about but the owner. It provides a safe haven for anyone in the house against harm from any number of scenarios. Not all options would be needed if the only purpose of this room is to serve as a safe haven for you and your family against intruders.
