FEATURE A WALL IN COLOUR OR PATTERN
Having one wall stand out apart from the rest really makes a bold statement and obviously one wall is cheaper than doing all! Whether using a bright and fun colour or pattern, this feature wall will set the tone in the room. You can pick up a small pot of paint at your local hardware shop or you can easily find peel and stick wallpaper that is also removable.
PUT DOWN A RUG
Rugs bring colour, sophistication, and warmth to any room from your living room to your hallway. Depending on the style, rugs can be pricey, but there are affordable options out there and you can always find one second hand. Persian rugs are the trend nowadays.
ADD LARGE ARTWORK
Art transforms a space especially when it is large enough to catch your attention…every time. Thanks to etsy and so many designers selling their prints online, you can find something unique that speaks to you and your household.
DRESS YOUR WINDOWS
Window treatments add another level of luxury. Curtains or drapes can make a room feel finished and also appear higher from ceiling to floor. Make sure your curtains or drapes touch the floor or else you will get the opposite effect with the room height appearing stumped.
