GRAND RAPIDS, MIch. (WOTV) - Wouldn't it be grand if we all lived in architecturally smart rooms with interesting angels, huge windows and high ceilings? But in reality most of us have a least one boring, boxy room somewhere in our home. You know the kind: low ceilings, blah windows, zero molding, no character whatsoever. By taking a few chances, you can turn that boxy room into an amazing, comfy space with tons of style.
Here are a few tips:
- THINK BIG AND BE BOLD: Big and bold can be sparse and all white to plush, textured and stuffed. But a boring box of a room will benefit greatly from a big vision.
- WHAT SURROUNDS YOU ? WALLS! Paint, wallpaper or moldings – just don't leave them builder beige!
- THINK DRAPERIES : Extra-long draperies can do a squat, boring window a world of good and add some much-needed drama. A drapery treatment behind a bed acts as a headboard and adds texture, color, pattern and drama (even if it's beige!)
- LET THERE BE LIGHT! Whatever you do, do not be content with a boring flush-mounted ceiling light. Go big, go bold, go bright. Lighting — both the fixture and the quality of light it casts — can completely transform a room.
