Five Tips for Planning a Room Makeover

With the new year just around the corner it's likely you're planning to make some changes. Often, those changes come in the form of home improvements. But before you start redecorating that space there are some decisions you will have to make. The biggest one is whether or not you will enlist the help of an interior designer. You might also consider using a design consultant. However, if you want to stretch your creative muscles and go it alone here are five tips that will make the process much easier.

ONE. Start with a plan. Create a Pinterest board specifically for the room and pin things you would like to see in the space. Add anything from paint colors to specific styles of furniture. But don't stop there. Add rugs, artwork and even pillows that you're drawn to. Not a tech person? Pull pages from magazines, gather fabric samples and paint swatches and create a classic mood board. This will help you create a vision for the space that will serve as inspiration for the makeover.

TWO. Decide on a budget. You have to create a guideline that will allow you to determine where you can invest. In other words, think of this as a “save or splurge” list. For example, you might decide to invest in bedding made of designer fabrics and sheets with a high thread count while saving on less costly lamps or accessories.

THREE. Know your measurements. This one is so important as it will be a guide to what you can or can't use in the space. It also makes shopping so much easier which, in turn, will make it a lot more fun. And if you come across the perfect piece while sourcing items for your makeover you won't have to question whether or not it will fit the space. You can just go for it!

FOUR. Create a floor plan. It doesn't have to be CAD designed but it should be drawn to specific dimensions of the space along with proper placement of doors, windows and any architectural features such as a fireplace. A floor plan is your guide to a layout that will help you make the best use of the space.

FIVE. Start with the biggest pieces first. In a living room that's typically going to be the sofa. Once you've made this decision you can choose the smaller pieces such as accent chairs and tables. Save accessories, rugs and artwork for the final phase.

Planning a room makeover can be a fun way to express your creative side. But remember, you don't have to go it alone. If you get stuck or decide you need a little help just visit our showroom. Our design staff can help you with your room makeover every step of the way.

Rustic glam is a posh yet livable look. Polished metals and velvet textiles elevate heavily distressed pieces by creating a look that is high in contrast. A space that's layered in these rich textures needs few accessories as the pieces speak for themselves.

Adding a rustic piece to a modern space creates a high end look that has depth. Modern homes can often feel impersonal but when you implement a piece in distressed or weathered wood it adds major character.

Rustic can easily go industrial with details such as nailheads and substantial hardware. Elements such as exposed wires and large scale artwork give distressed furniture a no-nonsense look with style that is unforgettable.

Rustic can be casual and stylish with the right accessories. Lean and layer artwork for a more relaxed look and fill in empty spaces with books and easy-going accessories. Finish this fresh look with an organic element such as a simple floral arrangement.

The Dos and Don'ts of Bedroom Design

Let's talk about bedroom design. Since this is the place where you begin and end your day it's so important to get it right. When these elements come together it creates a space where you can rest and recharge in order to be prepared for all of life's demands. We've put together a list of bedroom design Dos and Don'ts so that you can make the most of this space by deciding what's working for you and what isn't.

DO make it a clutter free zone. It's not easy to relax in a cluttered space so you shouldn't over-accessorize. Try to keep nightstands and other surfaces free of unnecessary items.

DON'T use this as a space to experiment with your style every time a new trend pops up on Pinterest. If there's too much going on in one space it can create sensory overload making it difficult for your brain to prepare for sleep.

DON'T skimp on bedding. Luxury linens are a great investment because they create a spa-like feel in your bedroom. Plus, high-quality bedding will far outlast cheaper options and give your bedroom a designer look.

DO invest in a high-quality mattress as well. This may be the most important “do” of all. If you don't sleep well you'll never appreciate a well-designed bedroom.

DO install the right window treatments. If you're a light sleeper then consider shades or curtains that will block the light when necessary but allow it to shine through when you need a boost of sunshine.

DON'T rely on a single overhead light. Place lamps on nightstands or install sconce lights on either side of the bed. This provides a soft light for reading and creates a more relaxed vibe.

DON'T overcrowd the room with furniture. You should be able to easily walk through the space and around the bed. If storage is an issue then consider a bed that features built-in drawers. This will allow you to sneak in a little extra storage and free up some space in the room.

DO choose pieces with the right scale. For example, in a bedroom with high ceilings a tall headboard is a smart choice. 

You can easily correct these Don’ts to Dos and turn your bedroom into the one you've always wanted. If you still can't get it right, or you simply want a new look in the space, then meet with one of our designers to stark making a plan for your bedroom today.

One Bed Three Styled Ways

There are so many things to love about upholstered beds. They're a great way to break up a matching bedroom set, they always soften the space and they're just so comfortable. Best of all? They're so versatile! You can create so many different looks using a classic upholstered bed and to prove it we've taken one bed and styled it three ways.  

bed style rustic casual

art / chandelier / bed / nightstand & chest

A rustic casual bedroom has all the comforts you want in a restful space. Distressed furniture contrasts well with the softness of a curvy bed draped in fabric. Artwork inspired by a vintage map gives the space a sense of history while industrial style lighting adds a modern vibe. 

bed style modern classic

chandelier / art / bed / nightstand & dresser

You can never go wrong with a timeless look. Classic linen paired with rich wood tones is always a winning combination. Put a modern twist on this look with statement lighting. A chandelier or pendant with a structural quality always feels modern. Quirky artwork will give the space personality and this painting has a fun farmhouse look.

bed style luxury

art / chandelier / bed / nightstand & dresser  

A space doesn't have to be over the top to be luxurious. Choosing traditional pieces that repeat the soft curve of the bed creates an elegant look. Go glam with lighting that practically sparkles like this gold banded chandelier. Contrast the traditional look of these pieces with modern artwork in bright hues for a unexpected burst of color.

Designing a bedroom with an upholstered bed lets you create a space with your own unique style. Visit our showroom today to start the process of designing your bedroom with a custom upholstered bed from Kincaid Furniture.

Add Personality to a Neutral Bedroom

Neutral spaces are on trend in a big way, especially in bedrooms. When done the right way, they can have just as much impact as spaces filled with color and pattern. But if your neutral bedroom is leaving you feeling less than inspired, that could mean it needs a finishing touch. It’s easy to add personality to a neutral bedroom with just one or two pieces. Here are four easy ways to take your neutral bedroom to the next level.

 

neutralpop1

mirror / bedroom

Who says you have to use the mirror that matches the dresser? Create a custom look by opting for a unique decorative mirror. This is such as easy way to add some style to the space. For a more traditional feel, match the mirror’s frame to the hardware, or for a more modern look, introduce another metallic to the room in a contrasting finish.

 

neutralpop2

 

artwork / bedroom

An interesting piece of artwork can completely change the look and feel of a room, especially one that’s layered in neutrals. This mirrored map isn’t a piece you would typically see in a bedroom, which is what makes it work so well. Think beyond the norm and go for a large-scale piece that has graphic punch.

 

neutralpop3

lamp / bedroom

Adding gold accessories to grey walls or furniture instantly warms up the space. It also adds a modern element to this rustic look. Polished gold pieces add a sophisticated flair, and in this space it’s the perfect contrast.

 

neutralpop4

rug / bedroom

An area rug in a rich color adds drama and a designer look to a neutral bedroom. Go for a wow factor with a bold color and a vintage inspired look. Choose a plush texture to give the space a luxurious feel.

 

Is your neutral bedroom looking a little tired? Bring it back to life with one of these easy updates! Visit our showroom where you’ll find lots of inspiration for adding personality to your neutral spaces.
