Mix + Match Décor + Accessories to Create A Charmingly Cohesive Home
As a homeowner, there are various responsibilities you have to take on – from taking care of the yard to fixing leaks and other household issues, maintaining your home can be tough! However, there is also an incredibly fun aspect of owning a home – decorating! Let your creative juices flow by tailoring a design for every room of your home. Window treatments, rugs, pillows and mirrors are just a few of the ways you can incorporate your personal style and all you need is three unique pieces to make any room complete.
Each room in your home has its own unique purpose. Not every room has to be decorated the same way; so liven them up inside and out with decorative accents that reflect individual style and taste. Here are some ways you can incorporate just three pieces into each room of your home to add an eye-catching personal touch.
Make your bedroom feel like your home within your home with tranquil accents to help you unwind. There are many different ways you can use window coverings to incorporate a piece of your style into your bedroom. For example, you can use pleated shades with a blackout liner to give you full control of light levels and privacy. To accessorize your bed and add a touch of design, use colorful pillows to brighten up the room, along with a custom duvet cover that matches perfectly.
The living room is most likely the first room your guests see when they enter your home. Make a lasting impression by using decorative accents to highlight your living room’s best features. Window coverings such as neutral vertical blinds can be angled to filter sunlight or they can be drawn back to completely showcase a full view. If the couch is the highlight of your living room, complement its features with decorative pillows and a unique area rug as well.
For many, the kitchen is a place to enjoy home cooked meals or savor a glass of red wine after a long day at work. Picking out the right design accessories differs a bit from other rooms in your home because you have to take the appliances into consideration. The stove top, dishwasher and oven can produce a large amount of heat, which can damage window coverings and other design elements not equipped to handle hot temperatures. The solution? Consider faux wood blinds which come in a variety of colors and styles. They are moisture and heat resistant, making them a perfect window treatment for the kitchen.
Your bathroom design doesn’t have to be boring. Liven up this room with accessories designed to resist high humidity and heat. Consider using moisture-resistant composite blinds, which have the look of real wood but have greater compatibility with rooms where moisture is likely to collect. You can also add cloth strips to your composite blinds to complement your décor. Mirrors make great accessories to add to your bathroom, as well as unique rugs that together combine to create a relaxing ambiance.
A kid’s room should be a place for fun and playtime, but safety should also be a priority. Fortunately, there are many kid-friendly window treatment options available which are very easy to operate and provide optimal insulation, such as cordless cellular shades. Cordless cellular shades are available in different colors to reflect your child’s unique personality. Consider adding decorative film to the windows in a child’s room for a simple solution to cover windows while also blocking out harmful UV rays.
The bottom line – your home’s decor doesn’t have to be boring. Have fun decorating with unique accents and window treatments for every room. To see how you can take your home décor to the next level, contact a professional window treatment specialist today.
This post is sponsored by Budget Blinds but I know how far a personal recommendation goes. And I just happen to have one of those for you.
I have used Budget Blinds in my own home a couple of times and will definitely call them again when the need arises. They come to your home to check out the area and discuss what you are looking for. You can look through a ton of samples for color and texture. They measure everything and come back to do the installation. So simple and my blinds are perfect.
They can even help with more specific requests. I wanted to replace a couple of blinds to match other blinds in my living room. A Budget Blinds rep found the exact blind and ordered them for me. Could not have been easier.
I highly recommend these guys if you are shopping for blinds or would like to add mix + match elements to your home.
