One of the best feelings in the world is when you get your living space clean and organized. Personally, I always feel a bit stressed when things are a mess. There is such a sense of relief and contentment that comes when things are in order my home, so I have a system of daily routines that help me stay on top of this.
Getting organized is one of the best things you can do to not only make your home look better, but also to make it feel better to be in. That’s why I love to share organizing tips because it makes such a huge difference in your home’s environment. However, here’s something important to keep in mind:
The quickest way to change the look of a room is with fresh color. It’s usually one of the first things people think about when moving into a home or updating a room, but often ends up being the most challenging decision.
Since color is such a powerful element in design and can have a strong effect on how you feel in a space, it’s definitely not something you want to shrug off as an afterthought. However, that doesn’t mean it has to cause you a huge headache, either!
Living with someone else (or multiple someone elses) has its fair share of challenges. For most people, decorating the space you share is on that list – and perhaps even at the top of it. Whether you share a home with a significant other, roommates, or family members, you know that a lot of compromises are required to keep things running smoothly.
However, coming to a conclusion on everyday conflicts may seem like a breeze when you compare it to the war zone that is created when you try to pick out colors, furniture, or any other kind of decor for the common areas of the home.
The first step to making your home more beautiful and comfortable is to get everything organized. Now, I know what you might be thinking ─ but can’t I just get to the part where I make it all pretty? Do I HAVE to deal with the headache of organizing everything first?
If this sounds like you and organizing just isn’t your thing, you aren’t alone. For most people, this is usually their least favorite part of the process. It seems like a big headache they just don’t have the time nor the patience for. It can even get in the way of them actually reaching the decorating part because they’re so uninterested in “dealing with” the organizing part that they give up on it altogether.
Curtains can be a fantastic finishing touch for a space. Think of them like a scarf, adding extra style to your outfit while also serving an important function. In the case of the scarf, that function is to keep you warm. In the case of curtains, it’s to give you privacy.
Curtains and window treatments do more than just offer privacy, though. They can be as important to a room’s overall design as any other element such as paint selection, artwork, and accessories. They are often the finishing touch a room needs to look complete. While they aren’t always necessary, like when you have a picture window or shutters, they can bring warmth and a look of completion to a space that is lacking it.
