Have you recently renovated a room in your house and still feel as though it’s missing “something”? Often, people spend a lot of time, money, and focus renovating the major things such as flooring, paint color, and furniture, but forget how important the little things can be too. It’s those small décor touches that can actually work to tie a space together and help create a flow throughout the house.
So, if you’re unsure of what your room needs and what it’s missing, you will want to check out these top décor touches that work to finish off a space.
Don’t Shy Away from Artwork
Art is one of those things that can often scare people off simply because they assume it will be expensive and they may not know much about it. In reality, artwork can be very cost-effective when you know where to find it.
Take a look at the paintings available through Fine Art America as an example. You’ll find watercolors, acrylics, and more in originals or prints. If you’re on a tight budget, opt for a print that you can frame. You’ll still get the effect that you’re after but at a fraction of the cost.
Now, as you select your artwork, it’s important you focus on what calls to you, what works with your color scheme and design style. There’s no need to worry about who the artist is, the history behind the artwork, etc. Just keep things simple and go with what you like.
Bring the Outside Indoors
Another tip is to bring the outdoors in by adding accessories such as potted plants and flowers in the space. Fresh greenery helps to liven up a space, act as decor and helps to add drama to a room. You can purchase different varieties and sizes of plants and place them on the floor, shelves, a table, etc. Just be sure you are mindful of the lighting conditions in your home when selecting plants. Most plants will need at least a bit of natural sunlight.
Throw Pillows and Blankets Add Elegance and Interest to a Room
If the room you are finishing is a bedroom or family room, then it’s an absolute must to grab some decorative throw pillows and blankets. With these, you can be a bit creative and mix textures, colors, paintings, and prints. This helps to create drama, interest, and even elegance in the space. Of course, there is also a functional aspect to these items since they make the space so much more comfortable.
Add a Personal Touch
The final tip is to make sure you complete the room with a few personal touches. This could be family photos, your own paintings, drawings, family heirlooms, a special collection, the list goes on. Anything that is special, unique, and personal to you. This injects your own personality and tastes into the room, making it different from anyone else’s space.
The Special Touches are What Make the Room
It’s these special touches that truly end up making a room and giving it that unique feel.
