Ideas for Quick and Easy Room Makeovers

You may love your home décor, but every once in a while, you want something a little different and look for ideas for easy room makeovers. Maybe you like to reflect the seasons in your décor, maybe you are entertaining and want to add some theme elements for that special occasion. Here are some ideas for temporary, or permanent if you like, ways for quick room makeovers.

Add Color

Use accessories to add color. Pillows and throws are an easy way to add color, or change color to stay in tune with the seasons. You can bring books and other items in the same color palette and arrange them on the sideboard in your dining room. Try adding a contrasting color to your bedroom décor by draping a colorful throw over your headboard. The good thing about using accessories is that if you don’t like the look, or when the seasons change, you don’t have to keep them.

Or, in a bedroom, you can easily change the look by changing the comforter and bedclothes. The Tommy Bahama Twin Palms bed looks cool and nautical dressed in blue and white. Pieces of coral on the bedside tables carry the theme throughout the space. But when the bed is dressed in green, tropical prints, the room takes on a completely different feel.

Indoor Plants

Yes, it can be that easy. If you have potted plants on your patio or porch, move some of them inside for a few days. Use them to brighten up a living room or dining room for special occasions. Or add seasonal plants to your décor during the holidays. And while we are discussing plants, we should also talk about flowers. Flowers are a tried, true, and easy room makeover idea.

You don’t have to use the traditional containers for the plants and flowers. Use an odd-shaped or colorful planter for you indoor plants. Or a pitcher for you flowers. Small vases filled with flowers, or small potted plants, grouped together make a stylish statement. Or even a single standout bud or tall stalk can do the trick.

Wall Art with Photos and Mirrors

Do you have a blank wall that is just screaming for some attention? How about hanging a decorative mirror? The geometric detail in the Salon Mirror by Bernhardt reflects light throughout the space. It is a gorgeous blend of shapes and styles suitable for a home full of antiques or an eclectic apartment. Or you can make a gallery of your family photos or pictures taken while on vacation. Remember to follow a theme and lay out your framed photographs on the floor before you start hammering.

Change Your Door and Cabinet Knobs

You can get a quick and easy kitchen makeover by changing the pulls and knobs. Choosing colorful or quirky designs will really liven up the space.

Dining Table Centerpieces

Colorful, fresh fruit in a big glass bowl make a refreshing, edible dining table centerpiece when entertaining. Or group a variety breads on a tray with a selection of dips to add a special touch of warmth to dinner parties.
