Description: Tips for redecorating any room of your home.
Not all home decorating ideas require a heavy
investment of time and money. If you're looking
for a few affordable home interior decorating
ideas to freshen up a room over a weekend, try
1. Rearrange The Furniture - Pull your
furniture away from the walls. Try positioning
it at intriguing angles. For example, a sofa
arranged diagonally across a narrow living room
will make the room look wider.
2. Paint A Wall - Paint one wall your favorite
color and make it the focal point. Hang
interesting art on that wall and move a nice
piece of furniture there. (Note: Make sure that
the color is one that is shared with several other
objects and fabrics in the room.)
3. Bring In Plants - Greenery always adds a breath
of fresh air to a room. If you don't have a green
thumb, try silk plants and trees. The quality has
gotten so good that its hard to distinguish them
from the real thing.
4. Lay An Area Rug - An area rug is a wonderful way
of defining a conversation area. Try one that
complements the room. Lay it at an angle beneath
your coffee table.
5. Hang Pictures or Mirror - Hang pictures that
reflect your personality. Try frames that are more
ornate. When hanging a mirror, try and position it
so that it reflects and nice view or an interesting
6. Group Figurines - Pull out your favorite
collectibles. Show off your personality. Find a
display area and group related objects together, in
sets of three or five. Try and vary the shapes.
7. Add Decorative Pillows - The good news about
decorative pillows is that they are an easy way to
add textures and patterns to a room. Still better,
they can be changed to jazz up a sofa or chair before
your room is ready for a major makeover.
8.Replace Lamps - Lamps are probably the one thing in
your home that will give others a clue that your room
is outdated. Seek out new and fresh lamps that make a
9. Add A Throw Or Afghan - Similar to decorative
pillows, throws and afghans add texture to your
furniture. They come in all kinds of natural and man
made fabrics. Find a pattern and style that you like.
10. Eliminate Clutter - Clutter has a way of
eliminating the desired mood and effect of any room.
Find storage spaces for papers, toys, and other items
that take from the personality of a room.
If you have a decorative mirror or lamps in mind, I
recommend that you check out Bellacor. They have a
wide and interesting selection of both.
For area rugs, you'll find a mind boggling collection
of all types, colors, sizes, and patterns at ifloor.
Check out Bellacor's quality rugs as well.
For figurines and vases, you're certain to find
something you like at Go Collect. And for quality
prints and posters, browse through All Posters. They'll
even frame your choice.
