A quality rug pad will act as a barrier between the carpet and the floor to prevent any scratching from the back of the rug to the floor. Therefore, the carpet pad should be solid as opposed to one with holes in it. The more solid and dense the pad, the better the protection to the hardwood floor.

The size of your throws is also important, though it is not a real quality indicator it is something to look out for. A lot of manufacturers are making everything smaller to cut cost and this has permeated into the world of home decor pillows as well. Though this is somewhat of an individual choice depending on your design, typically large pillows look better and give a less busy and cluttered looked when layered together. You will usually want to go for something that is 16 - 20 inches or more unless you have a specific need for smaller pillows.

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.

Such curtains coupled with the valances complete the whole look of the window treatments. Heavy shutters can also enhance the look of the windows drastically. The various shutter styles suitable for the purpose are raised panel or colonial style. Rolling blinds are available in various printing designs, semi-light filtering and black-out type and these also give a new look to the windows. The rolling shutters can be placed both inside or outside the house and can be decorative due to the use of different colors or materials such as bamboo. Awnings are a common choice for highly lit rooms. The positive point in the case of awnings is that the window treatment ideas which make use of awnings allow breeze to come inside while keeping the sun out.

With a contemporary or modern space, you want to stick with things that are sleek and free from intricate details. A single large mirror or abstract pieces that are square, round or triangular in shape work well with this type of decor. For those who love a warm, inviting appeal, artwork can be a bit more detailed. Tapestries, prints, and framed artwork are more country themed, consisting of rich, warm colors such as rust, cream, blue, pumpkin and gold. Just be sure to carry through with the overall color of the room, so that your wall decor complements or contrasts with furnishings, floors and other accents.

Mirrors don't have to be unusual or impressively large to decorate your home either some mirrors are placed in the home for their utilitarian usage, but there is no reason why vanity mirrors, bathroom mirrors needn't be good looking and well designed to enhance the beauty of your home. When you are decorating with mirrors you can really create some exiting effects, why not think about using mirrors of different shapes and sizes on the same wall. When this effect is created using framed works of art it is called the military style and using mirrors instead of works of art is an excellent way to add light and depth to your room.
