With back to school and fall just around the corner, it is time to wrap up your outdoor projects and begin thinking of some interior home improvements for the upcoming autumn season. If you are thinking about updating your floor and decor, there are an endless supply of ideas to add style and color. Here are some of the latest trends to spruce up your favorite rooms this autumn.
Area Rugs and Draperies
If you are thinking about updating your floor and decor, an easy way to do this without spending too much money, is with new area rugs and new draperies. Area rugs are always a great way to add style and update any room. Area rugs look good over just about any flooring surface, including hardwood, tile, and even wall-to-wall carpeting. Another cost effective way to update the look of your home is to update your draperies. Curtains and valances are a great way to accent windows and blinds, and add style to a room. While some window treatments, like vertical blinds, can be pricy, curtains can be found cheaply at many fabric and craft stores. A few of the trendiest color combinations for area rugs and draperies this fall are purples and grays, and yellows and greens.
Updating the Lights
Another easy way to change the look of a room is to update lamp shades, light covers, and light fixtures. An old lamp will look new with the addition of an inexpensive lamp shade, and new light covers can be purchased cheaply at most home improvement stores. If you are looking for a bigger change than just changing lamp shades and light covers, replacing light fixtures may be a slightly more expensive option. While new light fixtures are more expensive than replacement lamp shades and light covers, many new light fixtures are designed for high-efficiency LED and CFL light bulbs. Light fixtures using LED and CFL light bulbs will lower your electrical usage, and pay for themselves over time. One of the hottest trends in light shades, covers, and fixtures is the return of Tiffany style lamps. These multi-colored shades and covers will not only update and add style to any room; they will also offer a soft, warm glow that you will find to be most inviting.
