If you are using basic white tile in your new bathroom decor, they will blend in with splashes of color on
adjacent walls. Try some brightly colored tiles to accent the white, these can be changed. This will help
make the tiles appear bright and the area look cleaner. It is also an easy thing to change in the future if
your taste should change.



If you have children it would be smart to always have available slipcovers when you begin to design the
room. Slip covers are very versatile, as you can match them to the colors of your furniture. You can even
switch your slip covers up for different seasons.



When designing a child's room, furnish it from a child's perspective. Children will likely have very
different ideas about what their rooms should look like than you do. It's important to use furniture and
items that are made for a child's height and easy to access with their small hands. Try to look at things as
the child would and eliminate any potential hazards.



An area rug is a great accent for any space. However, you must get area rugs that properly fit the room.
For large rooms, you need large area rugs so that it doesn't look silly. If you have a small space, you want
to be weary of it overtaking the room and the space there.



Hard surface flooring can cause a room to feel cold and hostile; to warm it up, use large area carpets or
throw rugs. Rotate them to minimize the wear to any one rug. You can easily remove dust and debris by
hanging your rugs outside and hitting them with a stick.
A great trick that will make a small space look larger is to add mirrors. They expand the space and
bounce available light around the room. It is wise to invest in a nice mirror to begin your interior
decorating project.



Keep the various rooms of your home tied to some central theme. You can always add unique touches in
each room, but stick to a general theme in order to create a feeling of continuity and tranquility.



Keep up with the latest trends in home design and make sure your home hasn't become dated. You may
be embarrassed if your home looks as if the decor is stuck in the past with out-of-date, tacky wallpaper.
Take a look around to see what others are doing, and keep your eye on interior design magazines too.



Does a space in your home need some brightness? Place a mirror opposite a window. A large mirror can
reflect the light into the room, making it feel as if there are more windows in the space. Your whole
house can seem a bit brighter with well-placed mirrors.



Try and avoid making any room look or feel cluttered when designing a room. If you have an abundance
of furniture, your room will be cluttered and cramped. Make sure you don't add more furniture to a
space than you need to keep your space open.



Do not be afraid to mix it up with your family photos. They are also a part of your decor. They do not
have to be hung in a perfectly square manner. You could hang them in planned patterns or at unusual
angles. Making use of surrounding white space can create some interesting effects and even change the
mood of a room.
