Lastly we must address the area where our feet spend the most time. (Please allow at least one year before you kick up your feet on the camel perfection of your sofa.) Lengths of Brazilian mesquite running wall to purple wall with a high base board in a paler shade. You have to give your feet something it wants to keep grounded on and the authentic natural wood imported from Brazil will urge even the most devour sock wearers to strip and allow their toes to wiggle.
Many people with small spaces lament that they can’t fit more decor into the mix. But if you carefully choose each piece, you may be surprised at the amount of detail you’re able to include! A tufted sofa, striped draperies, a chandelier and geometric shelving make a big statement in the space below.
Oh, the joys of seating strategy! If your living room is spatially challenged in any way, shape or form, you know how difficult it can be to find a seating arrangement that is both comfy and accommodating. If you have plenty of space, a roomy couch is a great place to start. The living room below features a modular sofa from Usona:
The many shades of blue give you great flexibility while choosing the paint shade, and you can even use it to create a classy teen bedroom that can easily double as an adult retreat. Blue is often combined with white and red, but it also goes well with other bright shades like orange and yellow. While blue boys’ bedrooms are pretty popular, think out of the box and improvise with accessories to design a truly unique space that reflects your child’s personality.
Start with the biggie s– comfy bedding an a welcoming layout. Bed + nightstand = a great beginning! In fact, for smaller spaces, this may be all you can manage, and it will certainly get the job done! For larger rooms, a dresser, a chair and other small furnishings can be added. In the space below, two chairs and an ottoman help create a comfortable vibe.
Use paint to add those intricate extra touches to the boys’ bedroom–it’s details like these that make a room special and ‘one of a kind’. Creative wall painting and ingenious wall murals are a great way to usher in a theme and accentuate it with style and finesse. Paint those cabinets green and add a giant scoreboard mural on the wall to bring in a baseball theme. You can even use the colors of your child’s favorite football or basketball team to create an inspirational space that he will instantly fall in love with. It is all about being resourceful and imaginative!
While painting a room is indeed mostly about aesthetics, there are many functional advantages as well. A clever paint job in a small bedroom can make it seem visually a lot larger than it really is. With most urban homes featuring compact rooms, it is a good idea to paint a child’s bedroom in a color scheme that reduces visual fragmentation of the space. In small boys’ rooms, it is best to not use more than three colors. If you are painting a teen bedroom that is tiny, then opt for cool, neutral tones like grey and combine them with deftly placed accent colors.
Adding too many colors creates visual fragmentation of an already small space. This makes your bedroom look much smaller than it really is. Lighting is another aspect that you need to plan carefully for bedrooms short on space. Lighting pretty much makes or breaks any room; big or small. Try to eliminate all dark corners by suing several layers of lighting. Pendant lights and scones are a great choice as they save up on leg room as well!
Using paint to decorate the kids’ room has plenty of advantages that go beyond the obvious. While the fabulous array of colors and the many hues help in creating a lovely, vibrant setting, the true charm of paint is showcased when you create a change in color scheme. While keeping the walls white and adding colorful decor is attractive, it will not be too long before your kids grow out of the current color phase! Instead, use paint to usher in the color of the season, and you can switch over to a different shade at any time in the future with little fuss.
But a beautiful color palette is not just about designing on a budget. It brings a child’s room to life while giving you the flexibility to change between styles and color schemes without too much hassle. While the theme of a boy’s room obviously determines the paint choices you make, you can always add an element of surprise with a splash of an exotic shade. These boy’s room paint ideas show you how to get the job done with flair…
