Sometimes it can be hard to decide how to organize or decorate a room. We hear tips and myths on how things can and should be organized. This can make us frazzled and feel completely disorganized. Hopefully, these tips will help.
Forget the rules:
First, of all remember this tip. It is your house therefore you should be able to do decorate and organize it they way you want. For this reason, forget any so called rules and do what you want, as long as you are happy with the final outcome.
Should sofas face each other?
If you are lucky enough to have a living room area that is big enough to hold two sofas or two love seats, you don’t have to place them parallel to each other. In fact, they will look better if you place one to the right. Instead, you may want to place a couple of chairs in front of the sofa instead.
The reason why is that in real life we don’t generally talk to each by facing each other.
You don’t have to match your sofa and rug
You don’t want your sofa and rug to match each other in color. If you do, they will actually blend together. Want you want is a color contrast. Consider layering colors.
Lamps are now bigger and bolder
Lamps have become more of a staple piece than they were in the past. They are considered important to your decorating space as your tables are. For this reason, pay some attention to what types of lamps you purchase.
Big, bolder lamps are all the rage. Many lamps are also coming with decorated lamp shades, as well.
If your home office is situated in your living room, you shouldn’t pick out a desk chair that looks like it belongs in an office. Instead, you need to pick out a real chair such as a dining room chair and place a decorative pillow on it. If you want your chair to still have the capability of movement, add some gliders to the legs (which can be purchase at any hardware store).
No, decorating doesn’t have to be that hard of an endeavor. Yet, it does take a little bit of thought and using some simple organizing tips can always help.
