Take a layered approach to lighting with different light sources across different levels to create ambience and interest in a room. Use lighting to make the most of a room's size and shape –uplighting makes a room feel larger, low hung pendants will create an illusion of height and clusters of lighting make large rooms seem cosier.
Aside from being functional, your furniture plays an important role in supporting your theme. Some pieces may function well but their style or color may stick out like a sore thumb. Try to salvage it with slipcovers, tablecloths or paint. If it's a lost cause, remove it from the room.
The first step in choosing a floor is deciding what look and feel you want for each room and throughout your home. Remember your floor is a key interior design element so you'll want to spend some time selecting the right materials, colors, patterns, textures and even shapes for each room. Some of the more popular flooring options are wood, laminate, vinyl, carpet, cork, bamboo, ceramic and linoleum. We've selected some of the most eco-friendly options to help you build a dream green home.
Sometimes rooms have natural focal points (places the eyes travel to immediately upon entering a room) — a fireplace, a bay window with a view, maybe even a built-in bookcase. If the room doesn't have a natural focal point, create one with a dynamic piece of art or a colorful area rug.
