How to Brighten Up a Dull Room

Do you have a room that doesn’t have that warm, relaxing feeling, here are some suggestions to help.

To start with, to add character to the room you can incorporate details to the architecture of the room. The adding of crown molding to the room will give it a beautiful, sophisticated look.

The same applies to base boards, which can be exchanged for slightly taller ones to achieve a glamorous look. You can also paint the wood moldings to add to your windows and doors.

If you want to add more complexity to your room, you can select from many painting techniques that will incorporate texture and depth. You can create a denim look with a special kit purchased from your local paint store, or simulate linen with a special brush bought for a marginal price.

You can also explore your boundaries with wallpapers, or add a special touch with the addition of a wallpaper border that adds interest and flair to a room. To add an extra design element to your room, try making your own artwork by using your child’s artwork and arranging them in a unique arrangement. Or you can frame your favorite poster in an eye-catching design to give a more sophisticated look.

In order to select a layout for your artwork, create a template for each piece by cutting out a paper of its exact size. Doing this prevents you damaging the walls and lets you see what your arrangement will look like before you hang them.
After you get the desired look you can use the paper templates to put the nails where they need to be.

Remove the paper and hang the painting. This will make it easier to find the correct design position for your artwork and will save you lets of time.
