Choose Signature Pieces
You don’t have to invest in a leather, Italian sofa to create a gorgeous living room or an expensive chandelier to make your dining room sparkle. Focus on small and stunning items that will pop in any room. For example, these nesting tables will look sophisticated in any living room, sitting room, or even a dining room or foyer.
The key is not to focus on how much the items cost (more expensive is not always better) but in how they look. Choose pieces that make a big statement without a big price tag or a big foot print in the room.
Nothing makes your home look more drab and shabby than clutter. Clear out all those knick knacks, piles of papers, and areas that just seem to accumulate stuff, like the top of the refrigerator or the entry closet. After you’ve done that, clear out the furniture clutter by paring down your pieces.
One of the best ways to do both is to invest in convertible furniture. For example, a coffee table with storage provides a place for DVDs and other media, allowing you to eliminate a tall media cabinet and hide your clutter. A wall bed with storage allows you to keep items out of sight and to convert the room from a bed to an office.
Make Simple Design Changes
Where you put items in a room can have a big impact on the look of the room. Simple changes like hanging your curtains higher than the window or moving your couch and other furniture away from the walls can add a touch of class and elegance to the room. Add vases of fresh flowers on your dining room table, your entry table, or your coffee table. Add house plants at various locations. These may seem like little things, but they add up to make a big difference.
