We all have that one room in our home that needs a little boost, but knowing where to start and what that room exactly needs can be overwhelming. The solution can be more simple than you think and you don’t have to break the bank to achieve the look you want. So where is the best place to start? This of course is where most of us get stuck, so often times we just give up or put it off for another day. If you have been struggling with lackluster room, this post offers 3 simple solutions to get you started with your room transformation.
The first simple solution is to anchor your space with an area rug. Not only does this give you a foundation for your room, but you can also gather inspiration to help you design the rest of your room. In this post, I gathered inspiration from the color and wool texture of the rug shown in the photo below to help me choose the next element, and move on to solution #2.
The second simple solution to help transform the look of your room is to create a focal point, something that will draw your eye into the room. This is easily achieved with a single over sized piece of art, large framed prints or an interesting wall clock. If you are working with a small room, consider an over sized mirror in place of art, to brighten things up and add depth to your space.
With the foundation and focal point set in your room, we can now focus on solution number three, which is lighting. A pair of lamps will add a cohesive element to the room by repeating the same color, shape or pattern. A floor lamp will add height and dimension to your space. Or perhaps your room calls for a hanging lamp or chandelier. You can set the mood with soft lighting in a space that is designed for relaxation, or use brighter light for reading or working at a desk. It is good to consider both functionality and design when choosing how to light your space.
