Walls are a blank canvas that need a lot of attention. Wall decor is no longer limited to
framed art. Metal wall grilles, wall shelves and decorative picture frames have become
very popular in todays homes. Visit our wall decor for a great selection of products
for your walls. If you decide to hang artwork, select a nice peice that will
add interest to the room. When hanging one piece, make sure it is properly sized for the
wall you are hanging it on and be careful not to hang it too high on the wall. Group
photos together and make sure to space them out evenly. The same rules apply when hanging
metal wall decor. If you are mounting shelves on the walls, place plants or a small grouping of
collectibles. Try resting a piece of artwork or a picture frame on a shelf for a uniqe look.

Window Treatments

Window Treatments can make a huge impact on the look of a room. First of all, make sure
to look for the proper type of window treatment for the room you are decorating. For
instance, use heavy drapes that will block sunlight in a bedroom. In a kitchen, use light
and airy curtains that are decorative but still keep the room bright. Be sure to add charm
to your window treatment with a decorative curtain rod. Curtain rods are
available in almost any shape, size and style you can think of. Find the perfect curtain
rod for your project on our window treatments site. If drapes or
curtains don't appeal to you, mount a decorative rod and drape a sheer scarf along the
window. This is a simple and inexpensive way to jazz up your window.

Most people don't realize how imporant lighting is. Changing the lighting can
transform the appearance of any room. If you have the time and money, you might want to
replace the lighting fixtures. Upgrade to dimmer lights, uplights or just replace your
current fixtures with more decorative ones. Other changes you can make is adding a decorative
table or floor lamp. Check out our lighting selection for great lamps and more. Moving your
current lights can also change the look of a room. Try moving a table lamp from it's usual
spot to a mantle, a bookshelf or an alternate end table.

Decorative Accessories

Why are accessories so important? For starters, they complete the decor. And they often
liven up an otherwise sparse-looking room. All accessories, whether they are personal
treasures or objects chosen specifically for the room, should be compatible with the
decorating scheme. The items should relate in some way to the color plan and the overall
mood of the room. Here are some tips for accessorizing your home:

  • Place odd numbers of objects together.
  • Don't create visual clutter by placing too many items together. Three or five accessories are
    more interesting to the eye than seven or 10.
  • Vary the heights of items to make your arrangement visually appealing.
  • Don't use all one material, such as glass, unless you are going to display
    an entire collection.
  • Use books and boxes when displaying small items to make the item appear to be
    on a stand and take up more space.
