Having more counter space adds obvious benefits: more room for meal prep, multiple chefs and can serve as an eating area. Create contrast by using a different material or color for the island counters than you did in the rest of the room. If your regular countertops are white quartz, try black or a dark stained wood for the island. Whether your space lacks a proper dining table or you’re looking to create a more casual bar–seating option, adding low–profile seating to the island is an easy way to increase functionality and make the environment more social for both guests and the cook. Create a breakfast bar or dining table, and leave a counter overhang that offers enough room to tuck the chairs or stools underneath when not in use.

A bedroom is an oasis for personal style and favorite items that you wouldn’t necessarily display in your living room. That makes it a great space for big, bold splashy art or other design elements that inspire you, but might not blend into other areas of your home.

Use them in front of your most attractive decor, such as flowers or rich drapes or windows, to reflect beauty and please the eye. Avoid using a mirrored wall, which can look too retro and alter your aesthetic. Instead, rely on one large framed mirror propped on the floor, or group several smaller mirrors on a wall.

You can’t alter the location of your walls without a construction crew, but using living room decor that emphasizes the wall’s height draws the eye up and makes the room appear bigger. To accomplish this hang floor–length curtains close to the ceiling, use tall bookshelves to compel guests to look up or install crown molding.

This can be anything from a feature wall to a mantle, or a bold piece of furniture that creates contrast with the other walls. Another option is to add a contrasting accessory. Look for an object in a style that differs from the rest of your decor. For example, if you primarily rely on traditional pieces, try something avant –garde like some modern art. If you prefer minimalist modern furniture, choose something that’s traditional, such as an antique armoire, as your focal point.

Color cabinets are a great way to add personality to a kitchen. The best part is that certain painted cabinets can be repainted as needed without having to replace them. The boldest color choices today are not necessarily bright yellow or saturated primary colors. Wood will always be a highly sought after kitchen cabinet material. For a fresh update to wood cabinets, consider exotic woods that have striped grain to them. The stripes will add texture and visual interest to your cabinetry.

Pot racks don’t have to hang from the ceiling; some can be wall–mounted, like the pegboard wall above. Find places to add shelving for additional storage. A row of narrow shelves, added to a kitchen island, can be perfect for cookbooks. Look for additional places including corners, or over a counter.
