WANT to redecorate your home but just feel you’re too busy?
An interior designer has revealed how to completely transform any room in just ONE hour.
Kane Hughes from MyJobQuote says you can dramatically change a room for the better without spending hours updating decor and furnishings.
Here are his top tips on how to redecorate any room in less than 60 minutes…
1) Raise your curtain rod higher
Strategically placed curtain poles can help you create the illusion of a much taller room with wider windows.
Install an extra-long curtain rod, keeping it at least two to four inches below the ceiling so the rod or hardware doesn’t get bumped.
This will trick the mind that part of your wall is actually glass.
Then add long curtains to the floor.
Striped or solid-colored curtains with bold borders will create the illusion of additional height. Avoid patterned curtains with large patterns that will make your room look smaller.
2) Add a large rug for dimension
A rug can help a room look complete and spacious, even when placed above a rug.
One trick to create the illusion of more space in a room is to place a rug at the foot of the bed and leave only half of the bed on it.
You can also use this trick with other furniture, placing only your front or back foot on the rug.
3) Rearrange your belongings
Has your furniture been in the right place since you moved out?
No need to spend thousands of dollars buying new furniture when you can work with what you have right away.
Not every piece of furniture needs to be pressed against a wall or blocked a window – they don’t even need to be in the same room.
Consider the function of each piece of furniture and prioritize larger pieces. Then, experiment with angles so that your eyes guide smoothly around the room.
Instead of spending hours planning, work up a sweat and just do it.
4) Hang a spacious mirror
Large mirrors make a great accent and are great for quick decorating jobs.
Unlike wall art, you don’t have to spend hours deciding which mirror will match the aesthetic of your space and where to place it.
Large mirrors will usually look great in any space and are best hung in the center of a wall.
They are especially effective in smaller rooms, as they add depth and make a small room feel less cramped.
5) Change the lampshade
When was the last time you stopped to notice your lampshade and the light it radiates to the rest of the room?
Perhaps never. However, lampshades can completely change the aesthetic of a room and regulate the amount of light it receives.
Choose a wide shade to spread the light evenly around the room and make it appear larger.
If you don’t want to buy a new lampshade, you can write stencils inside your existing lampshade or stick wall decals on the outside.
Just be sure to use LED or CFL bulbs, as they won’t heat and melt any materials.
6) Update your cabinet hardware
While upgrading your cabinets can be expensive, changing the hardware on top of your existing cabinets is a quick and inexpensive way to transform your living room and kitchen.
Choose the handles and drawers in the style you like and drill them for a whole new look.
You can even take your existing cabinet knobs and paint them in the color of your choice or replace them for a more cost-effective solution.
7) Bring in the bench
Nothing upgrades a room faster than bringing in a couch.
You can place a couch at the end of the bed for extra storage in the bedroom, or you can bring it into the living room for extra seating.
Just like that, couches come in a variety of textures and styles to match the aesthetic of your room.
For example, a woven couch will accentuate the natural earth tones in the room.
The couch is a versatile, sophisticated piece that can add dimension to any room.
