Every plain wall deserves a piece of work, so why not cover it with a smile?

I get this question all of the time. "How do i change my room? I want it to feel more lux or have something cool to it like a hotel or a cool coffee shop."

If you are looking to change the feel of a room and don't know where to start, here are some tips to get after this look.


1. OBVIOUSLY WALLPAPER

There are so many inexpensive wallpaper options and not to mention removable wallpaper if you are in an apartment. They come in all colors, prints and best of all textures. This is a sure way to take your room to the next level.

If you are planning on installing wallpaper, make sure you have a professional or use youtube videos to ensure the wallpaper is mounted on correctly. The worse thing is applying the wallpaper incorrectly and having bubbles appear when moisture hits the household.

2. PAINT

Paint is the easiest and cheapest way to transform any space or thing in your household. Using paint in a new and fresh way, could be the perfect answer to adding some visual interest to the room. Create dramatic lines and overlays with paint by getting shades in a similar palette or creating a more eccentric wall using bold, bright colors. This will take a bit of time but get some painters tape and a few rollers, and you're in business. Sherwin Williams , Behr + Ralph Lauren paint are my go to.
