When going through a makeover, you must realize that every detail — be it major or minor — can give off huge impacts. Windows are one of the things that we often ignore and take for granted. What we do not realize is that a simple change in the height or color of a curtain, or the design of a curtain rod can make radical changes to your home. Having long curtains hanging up high can make your home appear more spacious. The color of the curtains you choose can greatly affect the ambiance of the whole room. Adding window boxes can make the house appear livelier.

Lighting can also affect your home beyond ways you could imagine. A single, beautiful lamp can make a room appear a lot more pleasant and more elegant. Plus, the brightness of a light can change the whole way a room looks. But make sure you take into account the color of the room as well when choosing which type of lamp to use. The glow of the light, along with the design of the lamp should compliment the color of the room.

The color of a room is also of great importance. Room colors greatly affect a person's mood. It takes up a huge chunk of the whole room. Color is one of the starkest details one will notice. Picking the right hue for the right kind of area is something that you as a homeowner should be extra careful on. The print and shade of a wallpaper can make or break your whole room.
