Decorating a room. It’s one of those things we never consider tough before starting. Truth be told, bringing a whole room together involves a myriad of decisions that can have even the most enthusiastic homeowner sorry they started. Of course, things will flow a lot smoother if you keep the following tips in mind.

Where to Start

It might sound obvious, but ask yourself what you actually want the room for. Take your living room: is it mainly going to be used for TV, or are you perhaps set on making this a place for entertaining guests? Ask yourself what the room is for and how you want it to make you feel.

It’s also best to consider the carpet as your foundation. It isn’t necessarily something to base the entire room around, but it’s going to be what brings everything together.

Find Inspiration

When homeowners around Naperville, Wheaton, and Lisle ask us how to decorate a room with the right carpet, we always encourage them to come down and have a look at the rug types and carpet types we have available. You can’t summon the right carpet color and style from the ether — you need a frame of reference.

The same rule holds true for the rest of the room. You might want to flip through some home furnishing magazines for inspiration.

Stick to a Plan

It’s pretty darn easy to get carried away when you’re decorating a room. It might not sound too exciting, but make sure you plan things out. If not, you could fail to coordinate every element of the room, run out of money before you’re finished, or crowd your room with oversized furniture. None of that is ideal.

Find out those key measurements, work out a budget, and decide on a few signature pieces instead of trying to make every part of the room stand out.
