Room Makeover TipsRoom design is an art. Whether you’re making over a room or starting with a new room in a new home, those empty walls and open spaces are like a blank canvas. While there may not be any accepted set of rules about what you can and can’t do in interior design, there are some tried and true design strategies that work. At Windo VanGo serving the Baltimore area, our design professionals and window treatment consultants can help you with your room makeover. Here are some ideas that can serve as a foundation to spark your creativity and inspire you to create a truly unique space.

Be careful with design themes. Themes for a room can help you focus your makeover strategy, but don’t go overboard. Some popular themes, such as beachy or rustic, are so overdone that they lack individuality. Take a theme and make it your own for a truly unique room makeover.

Create a focal point. Your focal point might be dramatic custom drapes in a dining room, a mantel and art piece in the living room, or a custom upholstered headboard in the bedroom. If you’re making over more than one room, consider arranging your focal points in lines of sight from one room to the next.

Consider layers of lighting. Professionals build layers of lighting to create interest, intrigue and variety. In a room where everything is lit evenly, nothing stands out. Central lighting fixtures, plus the light let in by your window treatments, should work together to create dramatic results in your rooms.

Don’t be afraid be you. The point of your room makeover is to give a room a fresh new look that’s unique to you. Be bold. Personality is what will make your room great. makes a space great. Choose pieces that make you smile and are comfortable and cozy.

Windows and walls. Your walls likely make up the biggest part of your room, so it’s natural to focus there first. There are thousands of paint colors with various tints, tones, and shades. Wallpaper is making a comeback, too, with a wide variety of interesting textures and patterns. The natural light in your room can have a big impact on how your finished walls look. Before you start painting or wallpapering, choose your window treatments so you know how diffused light will enter the room at different parts of the day.

Think about furniture arrangement. Resist overcrowding a room, and leave room for your furniture to breath. You don’t need to fill up a space with lots of furniture, which is good news if you’re on a tight budget. Focus on quality over quantity.
