One of the joys of owning your own home is having the freedom to decorate a room to please yourself. The only problem is, most of us don't even know where to start! Here are some simple tips on re-arranging a room that can make the difference between "okay" and "wow" whether it be from a friend of a potential home buyer.
Before you start your room re-arrangement, consider emptying the room completely. Take down all the wall décor and remove any rugs. Now, look at the room as if you are seeing it for the first time. Also consider what activities you want to take place in the room. Let form follow function.
The number one mistake people make is to push all the furniture back against the walls of a den or living room. This makes conversation difficult and creates a walkway through the middle of the conversation area. Try pulling your furniture out into the room into a cozy grouping for conversation. Experiment with placing the seating group at an angle instead of neatly lined up with the walls. A rug and a coffee table can anchor the seating group so that it looks like it "belongs" in the center of the room.
Instead of spreading out your wall hangings along the walls, try grouping several pieces together for stronger impact. Also, it is easier to create "random" groupings than symmetrical designs which require careful measuring and spacing.
Now that your furniture isn't lining the walls you can add depth to your wall décor by creating three dimensional groupings. If you have a grouping of pictures or accessories on the wall, try placing a small table or chest below them. Dress the table top with 2 or 3 favorite objects of varying heights to add dimension.
