Interior Decorating Tips

 

Spruce Up Your Walls

If you need a quick and affordable way to decorate your otherwise bare walls, consider adding a square of your favorite gift wrap to a standard photo frame and hanging it on the wall.  Not only will this look great, but it will also save you a bundle of money when compared to the cost of traditional artwork.

Lighten Up

If you are tired of looking at a plain lampshade, consider adding some pizzazz by purchasing tassel fabric at your local craft store and affixing it to the trim.  This will create a designer look and, best of all, won’t cost you a fortune.

A Little Paint Can Go Along Way

If you have an old drawer set that’s simply gone out of style, add a fresh coat of paint and some new hardware.  This will work brilliantly whether you are changing the decorpainting or just need a more updated look.

Have A Seat

If the cushions on your chairs are looking worn or simply need some new life, you can make a big difference with some new fabric.  You can change the look of any chair by purchasing fabric and attaching it to the underside of the cushion.  This is an easy and affordable way to get the look of a brand new chair at a bargain.

Create The Illusion Of A Larger Space

Did you know that mirrors can actually give the illusion of a larger room?  Even if your house is small, you can open it up with a few strategically placed mirrors.  Horizontal designs are some of the best and they can offer a look that turns a small room into an open and airy spot.

 

Now that you know what’s hot in decorating, it’s time to get busy and start sprucing up your space.  After all, it’s often those finishing touches that make a house into a home.
