At our apartments in Blacksburg, VA fall is here! The change in weather has us wanting to make our homes cozy and warm. Do you want to do some fall redecorating? Here are some suggestions that will not break the bank.
Fresh paint- For under $100 you can dramatically change any room’s appearance with paint and a few basic supplies. Pulling a vibrant color from a room’s patterned upholstery or rug and putting it on the walls can have a dramatic effect.
Throw rugs - Throw down a rug as the seasons change. A soft area rug could really pull all the colors together in a room, and reduce echoes from hardwoods and tile.
Add Fabrics - Fabric can really brighten up a room. Plain sofas can be livened up with patterned pillows. New place mats are a great way to change the presentation of a meal. Pair a contrasting color or a pattern with plain plates. Dining room chairs or bar stools can be recovered for a whole new look.
Add photos to the wall - Use family photos and mismatched frames to fill a blank wall space in a family room or hallway. Lay them out on the floor and make a grid. Play with the design until it feels balanced and looks good. If you have trouble following the pattern, make paper bag cut-outs of the same pictures and tape them to the wall for the placement of the frames.
Window Treatments – inexpensive sheers, curtains, blinds or drapes can really change the feel of your room.
New Hand Towels - New towels and a bath mat in can give your bathroom a whole new look.
