To make the most of these suggestions, it is important to play with them ahead of time. Moving large furniture over and over is time consuming and exhausting. It will most likely end with frustration and the perfect placement may never be agreed upon. Avoid this disaster with a sheet of graph paper and some furniture cut outs. On a piece of graph paper, sketch out the shape of a room with a defined scale, for example, every one inch on graph is two feet in the actual space. After the room is outlined, marking all doors, windows, and other points of interest, create models for your furniture pieces from construction paper using the same scale.
Beyond basic decor, lighting is important for creating a desirable atmosphere. Cold weather typically brings shorter daylight hours. Lack of natural light causes a variety of strains, so prevent problems with accent lighting. Kerosene and oil lamps, spicy scented candles, and fireplaces are ideal for creating ambience and improving a room.
