Finishing Touches to Make or Break a CT Home Remodel

If you have decided to replace an old roof or build a brand-new house, you may find yourself perplexed by the mass of unfamiliar terms

Once you have the shell of your room just the way you want it, it’s time to think about what finishing touches you’ll add. You have painted the walls, put up the window treatments, the furniture around, and cleaned up the mess. But why doesn’t the room look finished even though you think that the job of redecorating your room is done. It just doesn’t look finished! What to do?

Once you have the shell of your room just the way you want it, you’re not done with the job. There are lots of finishing touches that you can add to make the room look finished and welcoming. Some decorators feel that decorating a room or home should always be a work in progress.

Whether it takes a week, a month, or a whole lifetime, finding just the right finishing touches for a room is really the fun part of decorating. You’ll be adding the jewelry to the room, the personality that makes the room reflect who you are, what your interests are, and where you’ve been. Get some ideas from our list of finishing touches for decorating a room. Remember, you may never be finished, but you’ll have fun along the way. Here are a few ways to discover finishing touches to make or break a CT home remodel.

Plants and Flowers

It’s amazing what a quick transformation can be made with fresh plants and flowers don’t need to find something dramatic and expensive. A simple plant potted in a decorative pot set on a coffee table, bookshelf, on top of a cabinet, almost anywhere, adds life and color instantly. Be sure to keep fresh plants shiny and dusted. You might even want to have two plants for each location, one for display, one “on the mend.” If a plant gets scraggly or droopy, get rid of it! You might nurse it back to health, but not in your living space! If you just don’t have time to tend plants or if your room is dark, find some new artificial plants. These work great for out-of-reach spaces. But be sure to keep them dusted and perky, too.

Expand on a Theme

Everyone has a special interest. Traveling, sports, pets, flowers, children, and even a favorite book or movie can all provide focus for a room and offer ideas for adding finishing touches. By choosing a theme for your room, you’ll know what to zero in on and be able to select accessories, art, and colors to expand and enrich the theme.

Deck the Walls

Bare, boring walls get a real lift with a painting, colorful poster, collection of prints, or family photos. When working with art, try to focus on a color scheme or theme. Unify the works with common mat colors, similar colored frames, and size and shape. One large piece can create a focal point in a room, while a small collection of pieces draw the eye for a closer look.

Get Grounded

A hardwood floor looks sleek and smooth, while wall to wall carpet adds softness and unifies large spaces. But an area rug, placed on top of the flooring, can create a special focus, provide a boundary for furniture, and even divide a room into several spaces without walls. Classic oriental rugs can be found to fit almost any decorating scheme and contemporary patterned or color-blocked rugs add color and character to the floor and the room.

Gather Together Some of Your Favorite Things

If you collect anything such as dolls, books, teapots, cameras, or sporting equipment, use the collection as a point of interest. Gather the whole collection into one place or arrange the items around the room. Celadon plates, blue and white porcelain, carved wooden pieces all offer themselves as works of art for a room. What do you love?
