Interior decorating problems you can fix in minutes

Interior decorating problems you can fix in minutes

Is your home in serious need of redecorating but you know you don’t have the time to overhaul your home decor? Well not every interior decorating project requires a huge investment of time. The following interior decorating tasks take only a few minutes so you can work them into your busy schedule.

Properly display art

Most people have a tendency to decorate their homes with too many smaller pieces of artwork and no larger pieces. And when most people hang paintings or photographs, they’re up too high. The nice thing about larger pieces of art is that they’re naturally going to function as focal points for the space. Since they take up more space, you don’t need as many pieces. By selecting one larger piece of art for a space, you save a lot of time. As for hanging artwork on the walls, you want to hang them so that the center of the piece is at eye level. Eye level for a human of average height is approximately 57 inches.

Rethink your lighting

A properly lighted space requires multiple light sources putting out light from different heights and at different angles. If a room only has a single light fixture up from above, then you’ll need to use some floor or table lamps to illuminate the dark corners. Task lighting such as under-cabinet lighting for the kitchen or a desk lap for a home office or den are also quick additions.

Install some baseboard heater covers

Old baseboard heaters can be a huge eyesore for an otherwise attractive space. If your heaters are looking worn and showing their age, then you can quickly install some snap-on baseboard heater covers to immediately transform their look.

Rearrange the furniture

Sometimes redecorating doesn’t have to cost you anything. Sometimes all a room needs is a new layout of the larger pieces. People have a tendency to get locked into a certain arrangement of furniture despite the fact that moving things around only takes a few minutes of work. Even if the new arrangement isn’t objectively better in any way, simply changing things up can make it appear better to you.

Hang new curtains

Windows come in all shapes and sizes but the curtains we cover them with are usually limited to a handful of default sizes that are often ill-fitting. Instead of shopping for pattern first, pay attention to dimensions. A common mistake is not having enough volume--they have to be stretched out nearly all the way to cover the window. Purchasing extra panels so that there’s a nice ripple to them is an easy way to correct this. Another common mistake is having curtains that extend just beyond the dimensions of the window in all direction when larger, floor-to-ceiling curtains would add more drama.

Add in a few accessories

Inexpensive throws, pillows, and rugs are the easiest way to add color, texture, and pattern to a space. You can display them in seconds and easily swap them out when you want a new look without breaking the bank.

A Brief History of Home Baseboard Heaters
A Brief History of Home Baseboard Heaters

From the time cavemen discovered fire, we’ve used heat to not only cook our food but keep ourselves warm during the harsh, cold nights. Throughout the generations, we learned to hone fire to our will, even so much as to gather heat from something other than flames. It’s through this intuitive nature that we created what we know today as the modern home baseboard radiator. This is a brief history of home radiators and their evolution over the generations.
