Though most of our work here at Schoenberg Construction is focused on building and remodeling the structural elements of your home, we also love to work with interior decorators and design experts who can take an empty room and turn it into a comfortable and welcoming living environment.  With that in mind, we’ve put together six of our top home décor tips to consider for your newly remodeled or constructed St. Cloud, MN home.

1. Rearrange Your Furniture

Looking for a quick and easy way to update an entire room?  Simply rearranging your furniture in a creative way is one of the fastest ways to breathe new life into an old space.  Try pulling couches and arm chairs away from the walls or moving the location of a table lamp to quickly reinvigorate the space and to create a more intimate or more spacious setting.

2. Freshen Up the Paint

Whether you’re looking for a way to soften a dark room or hoping to add something bold and dramatic to a space that’s currently pretty bland, a few fresh coats of paint are the way to go.  New paint is an affordable and simple way to completely change the way your room looks.  Even a fresh coat of your current color can make the room look newer and cleaner.

3. Choose Pieces You Love

Many people feel pressured to choose décor elements that match a particular aesthetic or that will all coordinate well together.  One of our favorite ways to add personality to a living space is to throw this advice out the window and to instead only choose pieces that you really love.  When you see a particular piece of art or a pattern that really speaks to you, go ahead and buy it—and then find a space for it when you return home.  The end result will be a home that’s full of elements you really love and that bursts with personality as a result.

4. Get Creative with Your Wall Art

We love seeing homeowners use creative, non-traditional wall art in place of their old generic paintings.  Consider arranging several small canvases or framed pieces together to create a larger focal point on your wall, or use found objects like shelves or even ceramic plates to create your own artistic arrangement.

5. Use Basics to Redecorate

One of the fastest and easiest ways to completely redecorate a room is through a few simple basics like throw pillows, vases, blankets, and flowers.  Choosing some updated pieces in a bold new color or in an existing accent to your current décor is a quick and convenient way to give your room a totally new appearance.

6. Play with Mirrors

Our final tip is an oldie but a goodie—use mirrors in unexpected spaces or in varied shapes and sizes to make your room look larger.  A dramatic mirror that spans a wall or a large mirror hung above a fireplace can give the illusion of extra space, while a cluster of smaller mirrors hung above a couch or in a dining room adds some brightness and movement to an otherwise static room.
