Creating seating arrangements with a neutral rug to unify the room is one way to create an inviting decor.

Gathering furnishings together, rather than lining large pieces against the walls, can change the atmosphere of a room instantly with a shift in furniture arrangement.

RealSimple.com warns homeowners contemplating a new décor not to spread out furnishings in order to gain more space. "Spread-out seating makes the room cold," the website states. "Trying to gain open space by pushing furniture to the walls - where it collects clutter - kills the warmth of a room."

Instead, home decorators should create seating areas that have chairs, sofas and loveseats at close angles or across from each other. A neutral rug can be used to unify the room's different elements and activity areas.

The website also warns homeowners not to obscure the impact of windows in a room, or the light they bring into the house, by placing too many plants or furniture pieces in front of them. Choosing window treatments that are too large or heavy-looking also detract from the impact a window can have in a space.

Custom blinds or shades allow homeowners to choose from a range of colors and finishes for a window treatment that provides an ideal fit and look for the décor surrounding it.
