So you’ve decided that you want to redecorate your home, but you want to give it a different look and feel?
Tired of having the inside of every house on the block look as if the same designer put them all together? Want your house to be one that design magazines are lining up to show off? We have the best ways to decorate your house with a little extra style.
Premium materials underfoot
There isn’t a home on the planet that doesn’t look better if it is done up in hardwood. As long as the hardwood floors are kept nice and shiny, there are very few rooms in a home that don’t look like great with all hardwood. The best part is, no matter what kind of wood you end up going with, the folks at the Lumber Liquidators will be able to hook you up. Perfect for the experienced do-it-yourselfer — or contact them for professional installation services.
Fancy Fixtures Store
Rustic elegance for the kitchen
If the kitchen is where you want to spend most of your time and energy decorating, then you really can’t go wrong with an old school look. A copper sink, combined with other copper accessories will give your kitchen a rustic feel that isn’t seen very often anymore. A specialty fixture store will have a huge variety to choose from.
Cove lighting for effect
Maybe you want to go with a more futuristic look to your living room or family room instead of retro. There are a couple of different ways you can achieve this but perhaps the best is carefully installed cove lighting along the walls. Cove lighting is different in that it is not overhead lighting, and the light coming from a different source gives your room a completely different feel.
Classic bath comfort and style
Bathrooms can be utilitarian and basic. After all, we can do, well, what we need to do, with very little fuss. But is that how you want to spend your life? Heck no! You deserve a place to relax and let the cares of the day melt away. And one of the best ways to create that wonderful experience is in a classic cast iron clawfoot tub.
Now THAT’s a decorating style you can get into! (Yeah, couldn’t resist the pun!)
Tapestry and Wall Hanging Catalogs
Go new-world Gothic
While you might want to not go retro and you might not want to go futuristic, there is yet another style. Gothic is a style that has held a special place in many a decorator’s heart. Using tapestries and wall hangings can help give that look. Team them with antiques and your house can be made to look an old castle keep. Browsing a variety of catalogs can help you get the right wall hanging for your needs.
