Welcome to the second installment of our series on simple ways to change the look and feel of a room.
The first ‘Quick & Easy Updates‘ covered ways to incorporate color into your rooms, how changing a lampshade can introduce patterns and textures and the benefits of an area rug.
Here are a couple more quick tips you can employ to freshen up your space.
Re-purpose Older Furniture
Before you throw away a piece of old furniture because you’ve purchased a new piece, think outside of the box to see if it can be used in another room for an alternate function.
For example, repainting an old nightstand and replacing the hardware would instantly transform it into a versatile storage solution.
Rearrange Furniture & Art
Often, no major changes are necessary to change the look of a room. Just unleash your inner teenager and simply rearrange the furniture.
After years of a certain layout, a simple change can make it feel like a whole new space. Moving art and accessories from room-to-room can help to shake things up.
Cover Your Existing Furniture
Slipcovers are a way to add a completely new look to furniture without having to replace it. Check with furniture stores and fabric shops for individuals who’d be willing to sew them for you if you don’t want to purchase prefabricated ones.
