5 Ways To Transform A Room In Your House

Home décor fashions change all the time. If your décor is looking a little tired you have two choices: you can wait ten years until it comes back into fashion, or you can update it. It doesn’t have to be an expensive makeover either. Here are some ideas to get you started:

Furniture

Work with what you have. If the upholstery is looking a little worn, cover it with some cushions or throws, to draw the eye away from problem areas. This also works if the colour is outdated. Rearranging your furniture is always a good way of updating the look, too. By placing your most beautiful and fashionable pieces in a position where they will be noticed immediately, you will draw attention away from the less attractive furniture.

Lights

Instead of having one main, glaring light, why not buy a few lamps? This will provide some ambient lighting, which is great for setting the mood.

Colour

If the colour on your walls is a definite throw-back to a by-gone era, why not update it by painting one wall with the colour of the moment. This will serve to create a focal point, drawing attention away from the less attractive features of the room.

Accessories

These play an important part in creating the ambience of a room. Plants give a room a feeling of freshness; a tall one in the corner softens the edges and has a calming effect. Ornaments are also important, but don’t go overboard. A mirror is a good idea for a small room, as it will have the effect of making the room look larger.

Floors

Cover an old carpet with a rug. If you have wooden floors underneath the carpet, why not pull up the carpet altogether and replace it with an attractive, stylish rug? For a sitting room, you could try a luxurious deep-pile rug and for a dining room something more functional and durable.
