1. Lighting can make or break a room. Invest in lower-wattage bulbs to change a room’s mood from restful to romantic.
2. Decorate with what you have. Go through your home, and mix things up. If something you like has been hiding in a place that doesn’t get seen much, bring it out into the front room. It’ll feel like buying something new.
3. Don’t forget about greenery. Having plants in any room makes you feel more alive. Simple green foliage often lasts longer than flowers, and the overall design of a single leaf can make more of a striking effect. Try a single palm leaf or a slender flax in a giant vase. It has simple yet modern appeal. In your kitchen, add a small herb garden to your windowsill to add life to the room. Plus, they taste great!
4. Focus on your floors. Just like walls, floors need your attention, too. If you’re able to completely change the surface, consider sanding or staining wood floors, or replacing old linoleum or carpet with tile. For a quick fix, add an area rug. There are so many options, making it easy to find the perfect style, shape and color for your space. By making your floors stand out, your walls can only look better.
