Most rooms over time gather junk and we tend to fill most rooms to breaking point with furnishings we don't really need. You'll be amazed what a difference removing furnishings that are not necessary or are just taking up precious space will make. Once your room is cleared, it will take on a whole new sense of purpose, making the room appear bigger and reclaiming some natural order.
Furniture that will complement your room
A tired sofa can date any room. A sofa is usually one of a room's main focal points. Once the clutter has gone, your furnishings will become the main attraction of any space so it is crucial that you choose the right style sofa for your requirements. If you're looking to create a modern feel, choose sofas with sleek contemporary lines. Alternatively, if your living space is more traditional choose a sofa that will bring warmth and charm.
Colour can affect your mood and experience. If you want to create a contemporary feel, use natural or neutral tones such as summer colours. Keep everything simple and allow the detail in objects to add the flair you're striving for. If you want a more cosy feel, try autumn colours such as rustic browns and warm reds. Colour can dramatically alter a room's appearance. If you are painting large areas try using a roller - it will speed up colour application and give a smoother finish.
You'll be amazed what a difference sparkling clean windows have on a room. If your windows are clean, it will cleanse the light coming through which will lift the mood of the room as well as making the window a focal point. Try using curtain fabric and colours that will complement your sofa and flooring; colour co-ordination is crucial to finding the right balance.
Make low cost alterations
Sometimes it's the little things that can have the most impact. Use inexpensive accessories to keep a decorating scheme contemporary. Simply changing door handles, vases and rugs can revamp a tired space. Texture from new cushions or rugs can instantly lift a room.
