Home Accessorizing Tips

I love accessories for a myriad of reasons. First, they are the decorating icing for the cake. They are what makes a space truly unique and interesting. Put cheap junk in the room and it brings everything in the room down to the level of the junk. Put quality accessories in a room, and you raise the overall status to the quality of the accessories. Too many people do not realize how important accessories are.

Not only is the quality of accessories important to the finished look, so is the placement. Here again most people do not know how to properly display their accessories. The placement of accessories can make or break a room. Knowing where to start is also a key factor. A good place to start is with your lighting. You want to make sure that all seating has good lighting and you want to make sure that light extends to all parts of the room as much as possible.

Every average sized room should have a minimum of 3 sources of lighting. So when you plan your lighting, you want to think of the place as a giant triangle. Try to put a lamp at every point of the triangle and you'll find it pretty easy to balance the room with light.

Following are a few general guidelines when incorporating the lighting into your room.

  • Lamps that are used for tasks should be approximately 28" to 32" tall. If a floor lamp, the best height is at least 40" to 42" from the floor. Place the light so that it is behind the reader's shoulder with the shade slightly below the reader's nose.
  • Avoid placing a lamp in the middle of a table. It should sit forward and closer to the reader.
  • For lamps placed on dressers, a good height is 20" to 24".
  • When selecting a chandelier, you want to pick one that is in good scale to the table. A good rule of thumb is 1/2 of the width of the table plus 9 inches.
  • Once you have the lighting in place you can graduate to the wall art and other accessories. Place your strongest art on the focal wall, so long as it is in good proportion and scale for that spot. Then you will work around the room so that you can balance the room at the same time. Avoid making it look like a museum with art on every wall. Divide the room into areas and focus on each area, making it the best it can be. If you have empty areas when done, it's time to go shopping. Now that's my favorite part!!!
  • If you love doing this, you'd probably love doing it for other people as well for some part time or full time income, right? We are the #1 Interior Redesign Training website in the world.
