Buying a new home in Richwoods is like giving an artist a fresh canvas on which to paint a picture. You get to choose paint colors, cabinets, fixtures and more so that your home reflects your own personal style. When you get ready to move in, you’ll have to decide how to furnish each room and what accessories you’ll need. Here are a few suggestions on how to go about decorating.
Brighten Your Room – One way to lighten up a room is to add a few white accessories. If you have small children, this idea may make you nervous. But you can always put some nice items high up on a shelf where little hands can’t reach.
Simple Shelving – Adding shelves to a room is a great way to display books, knick knacks or photos. You can add individual plain shelves or do a few in a cluster on a wall. Alternatively, a shelving unit will also do wonders to prevent clutter.
Throw Pillows – Brightly colored throw pillows are a nice addition to a sofa or bed. Solid colors always work well, but don’t be afraid to mix in a bold print. You can recover old pillows or splurge on some new ones.
Repaint Furniture – If you have existing furniture that will be coming with you to your new house, you can give the items a new lease on life by repainting them. There are many ways you can change the look of furniture through paint. You can do chalk paint or milky paint, you can glaze it, do a cool accent color, or apply a glossy cream with new hardware.
Use the Height – A high ceiling in a room can make inhabitants feel a bit overwhelmed by the space. To make the room cozier, try adding slightly oversized table lighting to help keep eyes from wandering up to the rafters. Work in some taller pieces such as a bookcase to avoid a flat horizon line. And hang artwork or mirrors up high to take advantage of the space and reflect light downward.
