How to Create a Put-Together Look for Your Home
We all want our homes to look great. Yet with busy schedules and ever increasing to-do lists it’s not always easy to make home organization a top priority. But it is possible. Your home can look polished and put-together even with minimal effort. It just takes a little strategic planning when decorating. Here are five easy ways to ensure your home always looks put-together.
Lose the clutter! Okay, we know that’s easier said than done but you can easily manage clutter with pretty trays and decorative bins and boxes. A room always looks more organized when small items are corralled into a pretty container. Place trays on table tops and work decorative boxes into bookshelves.
When possible, choose furniture with built-in storage. Beds with built-in drawers and cocktail ottomans with lift-tops work double duty. When items such as extra blankets and magazines have a home it’s easy to store them away quickly and grab them when needed.
Opt for sofas and chairs designed with a tight back. This type of upholstered piece is designed without any loose cushions on the back. Which means it never has to be fluffed and always looks nice and neat. Tight-back sofas are well tailored and have a clean design.
Use the appropriate size rug for each space. Rugs are not a one-size-fits-all type of situation. A rug that’s too small will make a space feel disjointed and chaotic. In a seating area, a rug should be big enough that all the front legs of the furniture rest on the rug.
Unify rooms with paint. Using the same paint color throughout your home will help each room flow seamlessly into the next. When every room is painted a different color it can feel disorderly. Choose a versatile neutral and you’ll have the luxury of moving pieces around the house for an instant refresh.
