Interior Redesign Trainer Teaches You How to Get a Room Started
Looking at a room is much like looking at a blank canvas
when you're just starting out. It can be both confusing and a bit alarming.
Should you make it look spacious or warm and cozy? What colors should you
pick? Does what you have fit? Does the room feel disjointed and cluttered? Is
the solution to add something, take away something or start all over?
Starting over is, in itself, a daunting task and an expensive one too.
Don't panic. You don't have to start over, you just need
to look at the room with new eyes and see the potential waiting for you using
what you already own.
When you focus on the room's natural highlights, such as
the architectural focal point, you will be adding furniture and accessories
that all join together for a common cause or goal. So that is why it's
important to plan ahead and work from a logical starting place.
So let's deal first of all with your "stuff".
A good way to do this, if you're a novice, is to clear the
room totally of everything that is in it. This will help you forget how the
room was decorated before and give you, hopefully, a fresh perspective on
what to do differently.
Use an adjacent room or area as a "staging"
area. Place like kinds of furniture and accessories together so you can find
them easily later. This pre-organization of your stuff will help you later
when you start adding things back into the room or gathering them up for
Now evaluate what you have to work with. Separate the
furniture you love and need from the expendable furniture. Remember, in most
cases, less is more. So you might want to think about eliminating some
pieces on the front end.
Use what is eliminated in other rooms, or donate the items
to a good charity or sell in a garage sale. Some of your will have
consignment stores nearby you can utilize as well.
Group like items together. Working with pairs helps
to create unity in a room. So look for what you can pair up: two club chairs,
two candelabra, two plants. You get the idea.
Distribute the lighting in the room into a triangular
shape. This will help to balance the room.
By keeping certain walls or surfaces free of anything, you
give the eye a place to rest and you draw more attention to the walls and
surfaces where you have placed your collectibles or art.
Don't spread your pillows out across the entire width of
the sofa. Group them instead. The same is true for plants and other
accessories. Don't spread them out to fill an area like little soldiers
standing at attention. Group them for more emphasis and a less cluttered
Don't circle the room with furniture. Utilize the
middle of the room as well.
Don't get tunnel vision and think that just because that
chair has always been in the room that it needs to stay there. Look for
unusual furniture pieces or accessories from other rooms, even the garage,
that can be brought in and given "new life", simply by being
utilized in a different room or different part of the room.
