You may even feel overwhelmed by the possibilities and paralyzed by the thought that you’ll make choices you won’t be able to live with. When that’s the case, it’s time to go back to the drawing board.

When you create your own style using right decor, the first step is to define your personal taste and style. Invest your time in looking through magazines and cutting out pictures of home decorating styles, furniture, and accessories that appeal to you.

Small Room Decorating Tips

Small room decorating tips – Small rooms have their challenges for decorating, as you need to make your small room liveable and comfortable, but without being claustrophobic.

Let’s begin with color. Dark colors make a room appear smaller. In clothing, it’s well known that black and dark colors are very slimming. These colors will also “slim” your room and make it appear smaller. Avoid dark colors in large amounts in a small room, especially on the walls or (even worse) the ceiling, as this will turn your little room into something resembling a dungeon or cave. Darker colors are all right in smaller amounts and low down (e.g. carpets). But keep to lighter colors as the basis for your small room decorating palette.
