When any­one is cre­at­ing a de­sign for one of the rooms in their home, they should re­mem­ber to fo­cus on a par­tic­u­lar mood. Dif­fer­ent rooms re­quire a dif­fer­ent mood, so take this in­to con­sid­er­a­tion be­fore de­sign­ing. For ex­am­ple, you might want a bright col­or for an of­fice or craft room but a soft shade for a re­lax­ing lounge area. Let the de­sired mood and the in­tend­ed use of the room be your guide.

You can draw a lot of at­ten­tion to spaces in your room when you use this tip. In or­der to get a con­tem­po­rary style, you will def­i­nite­ly want to fo­cus on pat­terns and tex­tures.

Designer Brand

Once you have an idea of what you want, check mass re­tail­ers for qual­i­ty equiv­a­lents of de­sign­er work. De­sign­er brand dé­cor is very ex­pen­sive, and there are al­ways sim­i­lar de­signs for less mon­ey avail­able. If you are buy­ing an item that re­quires longevi­ty, pur­chase the de­sign­er brand.

Re­plac­ing your kitchen cab­i­nets can be a cost ef­fec­tive and easy way to dras­ti­cal­ly change the look of your kitchen. Glass doors with­in kitchen cab­i­netry open up the space and give it a more airy feel. Fin­ish off your look with some dec­o­ra­tive ac­cents in­side the cab­i­nets for a great feel in your space.

Con­sid­er ap­ply­ing wall­pa­per to on­ly 50% of a wall. Re­dec­o­rat­ing walls can set you back a lot of mon­ey if not planned prop­er­ly. If you are look­ing to save some cash when you are dec­o­rat­ing you can just put wall pa­per on half of the wall. Your wall­pa­per should have a bold bor­der. Once you do this, se­lect a col­or for paint­ing the rest of the wall. This can make your home ap­pear styl­ish and put more mon­ey in your pock­et.

If you have floors that are made of tile, stone or con­crete, the use of styl­ish area rugs will make your room seem co­zi­er and warmer to your feet. Ro­tate your rugs as the sea­sons change to in­cor­po­rate a fresh and coör­di­nat­ed as­pect to your room. This will not on­ly give them even wear, but it will al­so length­en the life of the rug.

Smaller Rooms

A lot of peo­ple have small­er rooms that are beg­ging to seem larg­er. Lighter col­ors help make small­er rooms feel and look big­ger. Us­ing dark col­ors in a small space will make it look small­er than what it re­al­ly is.

In­cor­po­rat­ing trendy de­signs in­to your plans can be great. It adds some style and give a room a mod­ern feel­ing. Re­mem­ber to fol­low trends in ac­ces­sories and ac­cents, not in your ex­pen­sive pieces or over­all de­sign. If a ze­bra-print pil­low goes out of style, it is easy to re­place it. A trendy liv­ing room suite is much more dif­fi­cult to re­place than one or two pil­lows.

Light­ing is an es­sen­tial el­e­ment that must al­ways be tak­en in­to ac­count. There are many ways to bring light in­to your room such as lights, win­dows, sky­lights, can­dles and mir­rors. You can com­bine all these ef­fects. Prop­er light­ing helps set the mood of a room. A for­mer­ly bland space can get an eye-pop­ping kick.

Try to cre­ate a col­lec­tion. Col­lec­tions are just items of three or more. Three vas­es, for ex­am­ple, would be a col­lec­tion. Three pic­tures are al­so a col­lec­tion. Group col­lec­tions to­geth­er in­to an in­ter­est­ing dis­play to have a fas­ci­nat­ing con­ver­sa­tion piece.

Elim­i­nate clut­ter and over-sized fur­ni­ture from small rooms. If you have items out in the open, clut­ter­ing up a room, look in­to cre­ative stor­age op­tions. Whether it’s some­thing to hold a kid’s toys or a new cab­i­net to hold pa­per­work, stor­age can help open up a room. A sim­ple box stored in the cor­ner of a room will free up space used up by items scat­tered through­out the room.
