How to dress your windows

Window dressing is an important part of decorating your room; it can not only change the light, feeling and mood of a room but is necessary for light control and privacy. There are so many choices out there that it can be confusing.

Whether it is shutters, curtains or blinds, there is something for everyone so here are a few tips to help you choose the right ones for you. Curtains or blinds can make a room feel cozy and warm if chosen right, but bold colors and tie them into a room by using accent cushions and accessories. If curtains or blinds are your preferred choice do not scrimp on price because you will be able to tell, buy long curtains that sit on the floor for that extra cozy feeling.

Shutters are can be the more expensive choice but can be paramount in hiding an uninspiring view without blocking the light, shutters can come in many styles and colors, when choosing your shutters look at your property, you want some that will compliment the property and set it apart but be careful don’t get carried away and go too bold. The best thing to do is take a photo of your home with you when buying.

Updating your bathroom on a budget

The bathroom is normally the smallest room in the home but it can also be the hardest to design due to the size. So why not think white, you already have the white toilet, bath and sink. A great money saving tip is to add to that white. This design is all low cost but will look just as expensive as a showroom bathroom in any home. Purchase small white brick tiles, place them on the bottom half of your wall and paint the top half any soft pale color of your
choosing, hang a white mirror above the sink.

You could choose a mirrored cabinet instead to give you a little more storage in the room. Adding accessories in the pale wall color offsets the white for maximum impact. Place a bunch of real flowers on an available surface to bring a fresh feeling to the room. The flooring is up to you, for me it would be pure white flooring but everyone has different tastes.

How to transform your stairs

Staircases can be one of the hardest things in a home to get just right so why not try something different; here are just a few weird and wonderful ideas to completely revamp a staircase. Murals are normally put on the walls but why not try the staircase murals that actually go on each step to create a fantastic illusion, you can choose from a number of different designs, they may not be cheap but check them out online and you will see what I meanthey make a huge impact statement instantly.

If you have a wooden staircase that looks a little bare and boring try adding ceramic tiles to the front lip of the stairs, the good thing about this design is that you can have any color and any pattern you want. If you have the extra cash why not try a faux carpet, these are painted on and look great and you chose the design so you will be the only one with this staircase however If you are a little braver then why not go all white, this really does look great but your staircase will become a lot harder to clean but the choice is yours.
