Changing up the look of a room can be exciting for some and daunting to others. Many of our customers tell us they’re afraid they’ll “get it wrong.” But at Perfect Fit Window Fashions serving Naples, Florida, we have a few tips for ways to look at your makeover that might make it seem less daunting. Read on for more!
The Room’s Flow
Your furniture arrangement will greatly impact the flow of the room, which then impacts the overall feel of it. If you crowd the space, the pieces can’t breathe, and the room can feel uncomfortable and overdone. Be sure to use furnishings and arrangements that help the function 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.
The walls are generally the biggest part of the room and will set the tone. For color, remember that neutrals like cream, beige, and gray can help make a good background for other elements of your decoration or design to pop. Brighter colors will draw the eye. Always hang artwork at eye level, even if you have high ceilings.
How Lighting Works
Professionals build layers of lighting to create interest, intrigue, and variety. To use natural light to your advantage, be sure to choose window treatments that capitalize on how the light comes in. For example, if your windows face south, you’ll get plenty of direct light throughout the day, so you might want to have a window treatment that blocks it, such as shutters like Heritance® Wood Shutters from Hunter Douglas. Or you might choose something that will help beautifully diffuse light, such as Silhouette® Window Shadings.
Many people ask about using a theme in the room. There’s certainly nothing wrong with that—it can help you focus your look. Try not to go too far with it, though. For example, beach themes are sometimes so overdone they lack uniqueness. Keep in mind that 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.
