7 Home Decor Solutions via HGTV


We’ve compiled a curated list from a recent HGTV post on home decor do’s and dont’s. What we came up with are 7 home decor solutions, mixed in with a few of our products, we think you’ll find helpful.

1. Gallery Wall

Display your favorite photos in a gallery wall and switch them out whenever you’d like. You can organize the rest of your photos in albums by decade or event, and keep them nicely arranged on a bookshelf.






2. Stylish Accent Pieces

Use accents to incorporate the look you enjoy without being overwhelming. If you have a house in the mountains and love the beach, display a collection of seashells or coral in or on a bookcase or end table instead of designing an entire beach-style room.





3. Updated Hardware

Make small changes like switching the hardware on your kitchen or bath cabinets for a big impact.







4. Balance Furniture Pieces

Use something light made of glass or with legs, and add a tall, thin floor lamp to help bring your eye up and make it more dynamic. Be sure to keep your furniture arrangements balanced to the eye.

5. Inviting Yet Elegant

If you have the space, use it. Give your room a function, make it livable and ensure it’s welcoming.







6. Hidden Storage

Invest in stylish storage baskets on a bookcase or shelf to keep small objects in their proper spot, or add an armoire for extra hidden storage.







7. Buy Right-Sized Furniture

Follow these tips to avoid buying furniture that doesn’t fit:
1. Draw a to scale floor plan or purchase a room design kit so you can find the best layout without moving heavy furniture.
2. Embrace “less is more”, and don’t try to put too much into any space.
3. Measure the room before buying furniture pieces, and you’ll decrease the chances of making a mistake.
