It is amazing how quickly you are able to transform the look of a room by merely adding or subtracting various accessories to it. Whether you just moved into a new home or you want to freshen up an existing room in your current home, you are able to accomplish this task at a minimal cost by doing the following:
The first way to entirely change the look of your room without spending any money is to clear unnecessary clutter. Store any items that are not serving a purpose or do not add any visual interest to the room. By placing these items out of sight, it gives your room an instant makeover and provides a clean and fresh appearance.
Follow Basic Design Rules
Want to add visual interest to your room? Grouping and mixing items of varying heights and textures will draw attention to that particular area. Make sure to match the size of your accessories to complement your furniture. Remember to pair oversized accessories with larger pieces of furniture. These combinations usually display best in a spacious open room. Small accessories work better in more compact areas throughout your home. It is important to vary the heights and shapes of accessories to create visual interest throughout each room.
Accessorize with Items You Already Own
One of the best ways to start accessorizing a room is with items that you already own. Books add color and height and can be stacked on a table with a simple bowl on top. If your room has shelves, then create interest by stacking books horizontally and vertically. You may then fill in open spaces with your favorite art pieces, photographs and trinkets. Accessorize with items that you collect and are meaningful to you to add a personal touch.
