4 Easy Ways to Improve a Room’s Appearance

Last updated 7 years ago

Looking for ways to spruce up your room?  Whether you’re adding draperies in the living room, a new bed to your bedroom, or even a paint job to laundry room these tips will have your room looking like a picture-perfect Homes and Gardens spread.

  1. Spruce up the paint job:  You do not have to call in a professional to paint your walls. With a bit of know-how that you can pick up from the internet, you can do it yourself.  If your room is looking drab, choose warm colors that bring in light, like reds or yellows.  Cool off and mellow-out your space with greens, blues, and pastel shades of your favorite colors. For an even more put-together look, match the color of your plantation shutters to your freshly-painted walls.
  2. Liven up your furniture: Switch out an older armchair for something retro or modern, understated or with an old-fashioned feel. You can use slipcovers over your chairs if you want a new look without big prices. Complimenting your blinds to match your furniture can add a friendly feel to a cold living room.
  3. Add a rug: If you have hardwood or cement floors, a tasteful rug in the right colors will breathe life back into your room.  It is less costly, by far, than re-carpeting, or installing new hardwood floors. It will not only perk up the place, but when paired with new venetian blinds, will make it warmer as well.
  4. Get new window treatments: Shutters, blinds, draperies, or shades will bring functional style to your room.  Depending on the mood you want to set, you can find windows shades and draperies in a variety of styles and colors, accented with decorative rods or gauzy under-curtains.
