Compromise on contrasting design tastes with wood blinds
Many married couples are aware of the difficulty that designing a room can present when both individuals have different preferences, but ExpressNightOut.com states that it may be better to compromise, instead of letting one partner choose all the decorations.

Not only will this reduce the tension involved in the process, but it can sometimes result in a pleasing variety of colors and patterns that could be the main attraction of a home.

"Don't take one stance and say, 'It's got to be this way,'" Libby Langdon, an interior designer, told the news provider. "Think of your furnishings as an eclectic mix. One person doesn't have to fit into the other person's style. In design, people have gotten away from matchy-matchy."

Even personal accessories or photographs can make for an interesting collage of personalities that can make a household into an open and inviting atmosphere.

Langdon recommends that those who are having particular trouble on agreeing about rooms may also want to consider planning a housewarming party, which will force couples to compromise,ac one way or the other.

When it comes to window treatments, couples who have conflicting tastes may find that wood blinds, with their natural and dignified appearance, can be the ideal treatment. These shades won't stick out too much in a room, but will also leave an understated ambiance to the space.
