Sometimes, a home, as cozy as it is already, needs a fixer-upper. But how do you fix a home which seems okay as it is? By using just a simple hacks, to up the ante so to speak. Here are a few home decorating hacks you should know.
Start with the door.
Making a great first impression is always a good thing. And the best way to do that is to decorate the door. A decorated and well-painted door has that 'welcome' appeal. Skip the screen door, because that is not only an eyesore, it's outdated. If you want to take it further, add a good mat and a door accessory.
Let your sofa have a 'conversation' with your chairs.
It's a simple trick you can find at hotel lobbies and even rooms to invite people to sit and have a conversation. The furniture are arranged 'U shape' or 'H Shape'. In the 'H shape', two armchairs which sit side by side is facing the sofa. In the middle is a coffee table.While the 'U shape' places the coffee table in the center, the two armchairs on its left and right side, and the sofa at the middle. All chairs and the sofa are facing the coffee table.
Another furniture tip is that don't push the furniture against the wall.
Doing that sets the limit of the room. 'Floating' furniture gives the illusion that the room is a lot larger.
