Room Redesigns

If you are looking to redesign a room, a professional designer can help you create a new space, but it may be costly. At $50 to $250 an hour in most major metropolitan areas, these services can be cost prohibitive. That’s why taking on this challenge by yourself can mean great savings.

Here are a few tips to take on a re-design by yourself:

  • Group In Threes or Fives – A common rule of thumb is that odd numbered rows of decorative items are more visually interesting.
  • Vary Heights of Items – An eclectic mix of heights for decorative elements really varies a wall’s look. Tall, medium and short pictures will be more visually appealing than consistent rows.
  • Rotate What You Display – Things can get a little boring when you look at the same space day in day out. That’s why switching out pictures, stacks of books or other design elements really freshens up a space.

These are just a few suggestions to quickly spruce up a room. From new paint to re-imagined flooring, there’s a whole lot you can do to mix things up in any space. Take a look at the room you want to redesign and see what you have on hand. You may be surprised at what you can do with small changes.
