If you’re like a lot of Treasure Coast Window Fashions customers here in the greater Jupiter area, you might want to make a change to a room but still feel daunted about how to go about it. It might help you to know, as long as you’re comfortable with and in your space, you can’t go wrong. See below for a few ideas that might help you determine your best starting point so you can get your project moving!
Walls as a Focus
Being the largest area of a room (generally), the walls are a great place to start. Think about what color you might want to use to set the tone—neutrals such as cream, beige, and gray can help make a good foundation so that other elements of your decoration or design can pop. If you’d rather have a larger canvas that draws the eye, choose brighter colors and then add neutrals as an offsetting factor. As you place your artwork, be sure to keep it at eye level, even if you have tall walls, so that your room offers greater comfort to the viewer (few people will crane their necks to see something up high). To help you arrange the artwork in a pleasing way, you can take a picture of the wall and use an app or drawing feature to map out how to fill the area.
Furniture Impacts Flow
If you set the furniture in a way that makes foot traffic difficult, the room will feel off. Let each piece by giving it space, and be sure to include furniture pieces that enhance the functionality of the room. For example, if you plan to entertain in the space, be sure to account for places where your guests can set drinks.
Using a Theme
If you want to use a theme in your room or entire home, go for it—it can help you focus your look. However, be careful about going too far with it. For example, beach themes are sometimes so overdone they lack uniqueness. Make your theme your own with distinctive twists for a one-of-a-kind makeover. And don’t be afraid to go outside the “norm.” Making over your room lets you create a fresh look that’s tailored to your tastes. Feel free to be bold and choose things that are comfortable to you.
Lighting Is Like Extra Texture
Natural light adds another element to a room’s look and feel, so use it to your advantage. South-facing windows will get plenty of direct light throughout the day, so you might want to have a window treatment that controls it, such as shutters like Heritance® Wood Shutters from Hunter Douglas. You could also choose something that will diffuse sunlight, such as Silhouette® Window Shadings. Also think about layers of lighting for nighttime hours. Have lighting that works for the way the room is used—brighter lighting for a workspace and more soothing lighting for a bedroom. And remember, in a room where everything is lit evenly, nothing stands out.
