Ordering factory direct blinds are among quick room updates for homeowners
Jul 27 2011
Homeowners only need to look around their homes for ways to decorate rooms that need new window treatments or lack colorful accessories.
Placing a large houseplant in front of a non-working fireplace hides the unsightly "black hole."
According to Real Simple magazine, the items that can be used to update the look of a room are often in a homeowner's possession. For instance, a quilt that lies folded up in a corner of a bedroom can be draped over a plain headboard or iron bed frame for an instant focal point.
For non-working fireplaces, a large houseplant that doesn't require a lot of light can be placed in front of the "black hole" that would otherwise draw attention away from the mantel art and collectibles, the magazine advises.
Window blinds are easy to replace by ordering factory direct blinds in a wide range of styles, colors and finishes. But window coverings can also be switched between rooms to add a different style to a space in need of a re-do.
Chair legs tend to take the brunt of knocks and scrapes, but there's no rule that says the legs have to match the rest of the chair. Use a can of left-over paint to give a new coat of color to chair legs for a quick update.
