With winter quickly approaching, we have found ourselves cleaning out closets, clearing off shelves, and sensing a need for change around our home. As the holiday season approaches, I often find myself clearing mantels and garnishing them with holiday decor, and re-arranging furniture to make room for my many totes filled with holiday splendor.
As we begin our process of change, I have also found myself dusting, sweeping, scrubbing, and ensuring that our home is ready for guests, gifts, and the many happenings that come with the season. With as budget minded as our family is, we have to keep cost in mind when it comes to re-arranging and getting ready for fall. Although my shopping nature tells me that I “just have to have that”, my budget savvy side kicks in and I have to remember what’s really important – and that’s to enjoy the season and the many blessings that come along with it.
Are you looking for great home looks for less this fall? Rearranging your home furnishings is a great way to give your home a new look without spending a dime. Try these easy tips to help you create a new look:
Define the purpose of the room: This will help you decide how to use the space effectively. For example, if you need a place to work or study, you will want to allow room for a desk and chair. This could affect the size of other furniture you may want to include.
Choose a focal point: You might include the television, fireplace, a window, or an aquarium as the focal point in your room. Decide where you want to focus attention so you can arrange the furniture accordingly.
Don’t waste valuable space: Position large pieces of furniture parallel to the wall, especially in smaller rooms. Diagonal placement of furniture cuts down on precious space.
