Are you no longer delighted about that stylish color you picked for the bath? Now just could be the time to mix it up. From simple furniture tweaks to entirely workable DIY projects, Sallie Kjos, owner of GreyHunt Interiors, shares creative services for fast and inexpensive fixes that will please guests and you.
Get Rid Of Your Curtains
Simply getting rid of old drapes could be the rejuvenating facelift your dark, little room needs. A bank of undraped windows is much better– and brighter– than an outdated and old one, says Kjos.
Raise Your Rods
For a true professional-looking window treatment, take the time to mount your curtain rods as close to the ceiling as possible, precisely where the wall hits the ceiling, or 12 inches above the window if you have the area. “This is a terrific method to add height to your room because it draws the eye up,” Kjos says. The finest part? You don’t have to pay out a lot for bespoke, extra-long drapes: Just order ready-made panels. Turn up the hem to the wanted length, then fold the edge for an ended up look. Usage fabric glue (like Stitch Witchery) for a no-sew hem. The bottom of the drapes ought to hit simply above the flooring, she encourages.
Create A Photo Gallery
A gallery-style appearance is much easier than you think, Kjos states. Initially, purchase various frames in the same color, or paint existing ones to make them look combined. (Using identical matting assists too.) Next, organize them on the floor close together to form a roughly rectangular shape or square, leaving a couple of inches in between frames. “Bringing them [in] tight provides the visual [impact] of a unit, instead of various pieces,” Kjos discusses. As soon as you determine a pattern you like on the flooring, tape that design template onto your wall and then hang up your frames.
Switch Up Seating
A dining-room facelift can be as easy as mixing up the styles and patterns of your chairs. For a current result, place some classic upholstered pieces at the head as well as the foot of your dining table, then use more modern wood chairs, a long bench or vibrant ottomans for the sides.
Play With Some Paint
One of the very quickest ways to make a significant, instant home enhancement is just to paint one wall a dark color,” Kjos says. Gray is trending this season, given that it plays off other contrasting colors and feels modern-day. Kjos states she’s also feeling black, navy, burgundy and emerald green this year.
