For example, hanging a mirror vertically will add height to a space while hanging a mirror horizontally will fill a wall. Also, adding a round mirror to a boxy room will liven up the space. The round shape adds interest by breaking up all of the straight lines. In addition, mirrors with an arched or richly ornamented top are an elegant way to dress up a space. Traditionally this shape has been used above a mantle. Mirrors are a fabulous tool to add depth and light to a room. This makes them a great idea for smaller spaces. Mirrors will make smaller spaces feel larger by giving the room the appearance of having more depth. Light from windows and light fixtures will reflect in mirrors and bounce back into a room adding more light to the space. A mirror in a room without windows will reflect the lights and make the room appear brighter. Another great idea is to place a mirror behind anything you want to highlight when you are displaying items. Mirrors catch your eye and will therefore show off the things in front of it.

Your rug pads help to soften sound and provide a buffer under your area carpet, as well as helping to prevent them from moving around. When your carpet slides around on the floor it is a serious safety hazard for the young and old alike; pads help prevent slippage. Moreover, rugs that move around and are not aligned with the floor and walls give the room a very shabby look and all your expensive décor can be ruined by an out of place mat. Here again pads are invaluable in helping to keep the rug in place. These pads help to extend the life of an area rug as well as protect carpets and floors. One of the main purposes of these pads is to preserve and protect the carpet.

When it comes to colours and fabrics, it is of primary importance to consider your lifestyle before choosing a rug. Wool rugs clean easily and patterns can help hide spills, stains, and hair from shedding pets. Alternatively, more delicate fabrics are better suited to more formal living areas.

Lampshades and picture frame mats are often overlooked when updating for the season, but changing them is an easy and effective way to change a room. Whether it's shades on your overhead lighting fixture or the lampshades in your family room, add a new, colorful shade to create a different feeling in the room. If you picture frame mats are white/cream consider adding a mat with color to add a pop to your pictures. Use the same color on all mats to unify your photos.

They consist of an outer case that contains some kind of stuffing. Some may be stuffed with feathers, but these are costly pillows and not suitable for the many people who are allergic to feathers. Hence a polyester stuffing is available as an alternative, or even polystyrene beads.

A bathroom for instance needs to be an area of complete privacy from the world outside. However, many bathrooms are retreats, spa like mini get-a-ways for individuals to relax.
