For instance, a storage ottoman can serve as a place to rest your legs as well as a place to stash magazines and knick- knacks. A futon can serve as seating and a bed for guests. Getting furniture that is versatile can keep your home looking uncluttered if you have a small space. Clean up. Before starting any interior planning, it is a good idea to make sure everything is very clean. Your carpet may look terrible, but it may not need to be replaced.

  • 2. redecorate your room, you would only need to change out the accessories instead of totally redesigning your room. Hanging a collection of picture frames on a wall can be hassle-free. Place a large brown craft paper on the floor or table and arrange all the frames on it. Trace around the frame and where the nail would go. Tape the paper on the wall and put the nails in the place you marked on the paper. Remove the paper and hang your frames. Paint or varnish old furniture before replacing it. That side table that you want to toss out? Try a silver varnish on it first and see if you like it better. Sometimes all you need to create a new look is a quick varnish or paint. Get creative, and even think about using a stencil. You may find you like the new look of that old furniture!

Get a second opinion before making big changes. If you are planning to redo your living room so that it looks like a disco from the 1970s, you may want to ask others for feedback. While your opinion counts the most, sometimes others can see flaws in functionality and style that you are just not aware of because you like your idea too much. If you would like to make a room look larger, consider removing some ceiling space. If you possess an attic that you do not use, consider taking it out to raise your ceilings.
