Changing the color of the room is the first thing you want to do when you move in, right? Perhaps, your builder or contractor is pressuring you to make a decision in choosing the colors right away. The truth is that most interior designers choose walls and trim color last. If you think about it, your furniture, drapes and accessories are much more difficult to find within your budget and style.
One of the easiest ways to change the look of a room is to reposition the furniture. Move pieces around to get a different perspective of how the pieces can work in the space. Take into account traffic flow and how you use the room to best determine how to place the furnishings. After you are satisfied with the furniture placement, adjust your existing wall hangings and accessories to compliment the new layout. Moving things around can dramatically change the look of the room, without costing you a dime!
Task Lighting- Use table lamps or free standing lamps for working on individual projects such as a puzzle, game, paper, crocheting or other hobby. Ideally, living room lamps should be set slightly behind and to the left or right of the area being illuminated so the light can come from behind the person's shoulder and pour light on towards the project at hand. Use smaller track lighting fixtures or other low-level lighting agents for computers and television viewing. This avoids glare and allows the screen its proper image display.
