When you walk into your home after work every day, are you walking into "bling" or "blah"? If your home doesn't excite you then it isn't performing one of its primary functions. Your home is your haven and it should nurture you, meaning it should bring you peace, solace and rejuvenation. But don't despair, that doesn't mean you need to throw everything out and start over.
Think Room Redesign, a.k.a. Room ReArranging. If you're sick of your decor but your finances don't allow for a complete makeover, room redesign is the first aid your home needs. Room redesign is the process of creating a fresh look by using a homeowner's existing furniture and accessories in a new way. Move that chair from the den to the living room, place the couch at an angle, repurpose that chest as a coffee table, mix up the artwork, rearrange the accessories and, VOILA! - you have a new room with a cozy seating arrangement, better traffic flow, and lots of eye candy. What's new? Nothing and everything.
Most people have a mix of nice pieces and just stuff, and don't have any idea how to coordinate everything into a pleasing, cohesive look. In the space of a few hours, we can mix things up and turn "blah" into "bling". And did I mention that it can be done without draining your bank account or depleting what's left in your 401(k)? It's true. Room redesign is the most cost effective way of getting a fresh new look for your home. After all, it's your stuff - you might as well enjoy it!
