You might like the overall look of your home, but want to add a little boost. Maybe a new color in your kitchen or a trendy pattern in your living room. Change can be daunting, but it can also be fun. At Blinds & Designs serving San Francisco and Marin County, we’ve got some quick ideas for room updates.
Try a Slipcover
One way to dramatically change a room is to get new furniture or reupholster what you already have. Unfortunately, that’s a pretty expensive solution. However, a slipcover can be the answer to changing the entire color scheme of a room without the exorbitant expense. In a matter of minutes, a colonial classic room can become an art deco masterpiece, just by adding slipcovers.
Consider a Variety of Fabrics
Slipcovers that can be purchased for a few dollars won’t do the trick. They become mussed up in a hurry, and you’ll find yourself constantly straightening the fabric. Spending a few more dollars having your slipcover custom-made can make all the difference between a stunning furniture ensemble and a grouping of poorly upholstered furniture. Slipcovers can be made in any color or pattern you choose and even in popular upholstery choices such as suede, brocade, and damask. Slipcovers for couches are usually fitted by the length, height, and width of the sofa and are easily installed and removed for cleaning or storage.
Other Interior Decorating Ideas
Add an area rug to define a conversation area in your room. Or try placing your rug at an angle, such as under a coffee table, to help it stand out. Rugs are a great way to add a new color or to freshen up otherwise dull floors. Use complementary decorative pillows to add unique textures, patterns, softness, and depth to a room. Finally, say “no” to clutter. Nothing diminishes the look of a room more than clutter. Clear the clutter by using crafty storage spaces for papers, mail, toys, coats, and other items that can give a room a disorganized, messy feel.
