How to Make a Dull Room More Inviting
If you’re anything like me then you probably have a room in your house that is dull or a little outdated. Are you looking for something to spice it up a little and make it a little more inviting and attractive to others as well as yourself? Well here are a few tips that should help you do just that.
In your typical home the walls come packaged in a very dull and mundane white or beige so the first thing you want to do is liven it up a bit, add a little color but be careful when choosing the paint for your room. If you have a well lit room and you choose to go with colors that are a little on the dark side you should get away with it just fine, however if you’re in a position like me where natural lit is scarce in your room you definitely want to stay away from dark colors. Adding dark paint to a room that doesn’t have much natural light to begin with will cause the little light that you do have to be absorbed and you don’t want that.
When selecting furniture for your room rather it be a living room, dining room, bedroom, etc don’t be afraid to make some bold statements. It is always a good idea to add a focal piece to any room, this is an element that will draw the attention of everyone who sees it. Be attentive to furniture color, you wouldn’t want to make a clash with the wall color, everything should follow together in a uniform fashion.
In my opinion you can never go wrong with beautiful wood flooring. Not only will it help to reflect some light into the room, but the clean sleek look it has is one that contrasts perfectly in any room.
While wall color, furniture, and flooring are some of the main aspects in any room don’t forget the small things such as window accents, light fixtures, and various other decor pieces. Stay along the color scheme and again don’t be afraid to make bold statements, you want your room to be eye catching so go for it.
