Many of us are guilty of using our spare room as a dumping ground, where our piles of laundry, old treadmills and collections of office supplies end up living. Springtime is a great time to remove clutter from your home, so what better way to do this than to remove all of the clutter from your spare room?
Giving your spare room a revamp can open up the possibilities of your home, as it can become an extra space for friends and family to stay and it can also be an excellent feature if you are looking to sell. Whatever the purpose of your new and improved spare room, you will be able to feel the difference in your home instantly. Here are some expert tips to help you throughout the process…
Stick to a neutral colour scheme:
When decorating your spare room, try to keep your colour scheme neutral, light and airy as this will make the room appear to be bigger, neater and cleaner. This is an important factor for both your house guests and potential buyers.
Many people often make the mistake of choosing bold, deep colours to decorate their spare rooms, which can leave the room feeling gloomy and quite claustrophobic. If you want to inject some warmth into the room, do so by adding touches of colour in the decor. A fantastic idea is to add coloured throw cushions onto the bed and colour matched rug to complete the look. This will add colour and personality to the room, without being too overbearing.
Maintain a light and airy feel:
Spare rooms can be stuffy and uncomfortable places, so it’s important to make sure that you’re getting enough air and light into the room. Swap out your curtains for blinds, as this is a much lighter and neater alternative. The best thing about this is that there are so many different types of blinds to choose from, so you choose blinds that suit your style
Decoration is everything:
One of the most enjoyable parts of decorating a room is adding the little personal touches at the end. When you are decorating your spare room, it’s important to not go overboard on the decoration. Instead, choose a select few ornaments, candles, pictures or anything else you hope to decorate your room with.
