Small things make a big difference when creating a theme for your home. You have the choice to keep it simple or to go all out. Whatever options are chosen, always remember that the design limit is completely in your hands.
1. A Kind Reflection
A vanity mirror is a great addition to a room with great spacing and lighting. In a room without good lighting, you can purchase a vanity mirror with built-in lights. The effect is just right and doesn’t get in the way of the natural quality of the mirror. For rooms with space issues, purchase a mounted vanity mirror or consider one with built-in storage options. It’s all highly flexible, and will always enhance a room.
2. Special Lighting
You can put 100% effort into redecorating a room and still miss the mark. This happens when the lighting is subpar. For some rooms, the theme is built on having only a small amount of light. The reason this setup works is that the idea was supported from the ground up. But when a room built around having light sources lacks light, you get a very dull look. This is an easy fix, and will also let you play around with home automated light sources. Once everything is set up, the room will change its lighting based on mood, time of day or user-chosen instructions.
3. Mix and Match
There is nothing wrong with a uniform setup for a room. It takes out the guesswork and gives you a predefined look with a nice appeal. Uniform setups can be unique, but there is no risk involved when you compare it to the alternative. Mix and match based on the theme, and spend less time trying to make everything look perfect. A sanitized-looking room is great for photos but completely misses that ‘lived-in’ feel.
4. Hide Those Wires
Hiding outlets is pretty useless if there are wires everywhere. Get creative by hiding the cords behind furniture or running it through the carpet. For more complicated setups, you can purchase cable management products that accomplish the same task. Even from a safety perspective, out-of-the-way cords are an important part of any room in your home. As long as it doesn’t hinder access, there is no reason not to invest in cord management.
5. Decorative but Useful
There are plenty of children that grew up with parents that wouldn’t take the plastic wrapping off of a couch. An expensive couch that is always wrapped in plastic loses a lot of its comfort. But not all products have to sacrifice their usability for decorative purposes. When you’re decorating a room, consider its usability versus decoration. If the entire area is balanced toward decoration, then it is more of a museum than a room.
Improve Your Vision
Before redecorating, think about how everything you add will come together. Take your time and create something that has personal meaning. If you can visualize the finished product, then all of that hard redecorating work will be worth it.
