Let's just say, for the purposes of an example, that I wanted to make a throw pillow that's seven inches square. Now you need to add a half inch to each side (in other words, a whole inch.) That's the size you'll end up cutting your fabric. Mine will end up being eight inches. That gives you enough room to sew around the edges. Cut two pieces of fabric in this size, then place the two right sides together. Pin one side, making sure that the two pieces are secure. Then, using a basic running stitch, sew to the other end one half inch from the edge. Backstitch a few times before ending with a knot. Continue this around two of the other sides, leaving one side open.

If you were under the impression that pillows were merely for the bedroom, think again, they can provide a pleasing touch to any room including the bathroom, dining room, living room and kitchen. To bring a fall décor aura to your den or living room, adding pillows to your chairs or sofa can really work great. In the bedroom, compliment them to your design theme but select patterns and fabrics that are all different with one coordinating element. In the kitchen or bathroom, a pillow put strategically on a chair or hamper can add a charming touch. Add a comfortable appeal to your room décor with pillows that have orange and black prints.

You are able to maintain privacy by only lowering the top half or adjust the cellular shade for minimal coverage, depending on what you desire. Vinyl vertical blinds are also another popular option for bathrooms because of the amount of light control.

A rug that will be in a high traffic area like a hallway or entry should use a thin, non slip pad. These pads typically are made of a rubber-like material and have a weave look to them. These grip hard surface floors very well, keeping your rug in place. You want a thin pad to prevent too much of a height difference to avoid any trip hazards and create a natural flow when walking. If you are putting it under a rug in a living room that will be creating more cushion and sound absorption, then you will want to use a thicker pad, possibly one made from a felt material. You can even find pads that are meant for use with outdoor area rugs which usually come mildew resistant. If you are using a rug to carpet application you will want to buy a pad that is made specifically for that.

Painting every season is crazy and a bit unrealistic for most people, but there is a way to add different colors to your rooms each season by adding color to the back of your bookcases through removable panels. If you have bookcases in your home you can add colorful panels to the back of the cases, behind the accessories and books. Simply cover a foam core board with paint or fabric and position it firmly against the inside back of your bookcase-instant color update.
