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.

Use accent wall decors to define or separate a distinct area from a larger space. This is perfect for open plan houses to characterize the living area, the dining, reading area etc. There are usually two implementations of accent walls. In most cases, accent wall is a bold color against neutral walls. The other version is using a more dominant color against other wall of the same hue.

Most quality pillows are two separate pieces, the cover and the actual pillow. A removable cover is quite handy when it comes time to clean the pillow, and can be reused after years of wear have flattened the original interior pillow. Also note that good fill materials should flatten easily but not permanently. You can test this by giving a little punch to the center of the pillow, if the pillow does not budge then it is made of cheap synthetics that will stay flat forever once they do get a little wear. If the pillow takes a moment but eventually gets it's swagger back this is a good indicator that the pillow can be easily fluffed and will spring back to life over years of usage. Fill materials usually range from synthetic polyester to full on goose down and everything in-between. Down pillows are excellent, but if you are purchasing one be sure to inspect the insulation quality of the feathers. Feather tips sticking out of the pillow are a good indicator of expensive materials coupled with shady craftsmanship (not to mention getting poked).

I hear many people tell me that their pad stuck to their floor and it cost them a lot of money to re-finish the floor. The type of pad that does this is an open weave waffle looking pad. It may look and feel like rubber but it actually is a plastic or nylon pad that has a chemical spray applied to it. This chemical is what transfers to the floor and leaves an imprint of the rug pad right on the floor. Real rubber does not harm the floor and a felt and natural rubber carpet pad will prevent slipping and protect the floor.

It can be used to create wooden boxes in which to hold small vases or other miscellaneous knick-knacks.

It's mostly a matter of personal taste. They are often tied to the sides but can operate on horizontal sliders or be pulled straight up. Traditional styles may also encompass prints, usually floral and understated. Sheers and heavy fabrics may be combined or used separately, but often traditional styles blend usability with decoration in a very versatile way.

In a traditionally built house, the walls will most often be square, and symmetrical, with doors and windows placed at geometrically straight locations, in line with one another. More contemporary floor plans will usually call for an open space design, in which there are only a few walls, and most of the space flows naturally into itself.
