How to Breathe New Life into Any Room

Summary: Simple design tips can be used to elevate any room and make it feel fresh.


After some time you may start to feel like a particular room in your house no longer feels as fresh and inspiring as it used to be. When designing for your house you need to keep both form and function in mind, as you want the rooms in your house to not only look good but also serve a purpose.


When you do not fully feel comfortable in a room you will, consciously or subconsciously, decide to spend less time in it. You might be scratching your head, struggling to conclude why the room feels uninspiring. There are some design techniques that can be used, however, to restore a room and make it feel fresh again.


Declutter the Room


When looking around your bedroom, for example, you may realize that there are some things that are out of place. If you have papers or clothes scattered around the room your room will look messier and will decrease the amount of room you have to work with.


Clearing the items you do not need off of your desk seat cushion from The Foam Factory can give you clarity, because you will not feel as distracted. In any room think about which items, decorations, or pieces of furniture are adding to the room and which can be moved elsewhere.


Add Scents


Approaching the physical space in a room is a great way to change the feel of a room but an overlooked aspect of design is how the room smells. Burning candles or incense can give the room some character the same way purchasing replacement cushions can. You should aim for scents that are not too overwhelming.
