Depending on your needs, you may be wanting a Better Built structure like one of our Casita or Lofted Porch buildings – perfect for that cute little lakeside cabin or woodland getaway. So now what? We build every Better Built structure to your specifications, but you may be looking for decorating tips to help your additional space look perfect for any occasion. Below are some tips on what to avoid to help make the most of your Better Built structure:
1. Avoid area rugs that are undersized for the space – Teeny tiny rugs will only get annoying if you keep kicking them out of place or tripping on them while moving around. Try to find something that you can place furnishings on top of…at the very least, a rug that allows some parts of the furniture to rest on top of it.
2. Avoid neck pain by hanging your artwork and wall accents at eye-level – Many art collectors don’t realize they may be hanging their art a bit out of visual reach by hanging it closer to the ceiling. Hanging pieces at eye-level allows you and your guests to enjoy the art!
3. Throw pillow addiction, begone! That’s right, too many throw pillows may seem like a great idea, until you try to sit down and have to spend five minutes moving all of those charming little accents. Select one or two fun additions and leave the pillow hoarding to others! On a secondary pillow note, try to select accent pillows that suit the furnishings they are being paired with. A tiny little pillow floating around helplessly on a giant armchair or couch will just look like a dog toy. And the dog might treat it as such!
4. Our most important piece of advice? Never, ever sacrifice comfort for style. If it feels good, but isn’t a current trend, don’t worry about the trend and just go with what feels good! It’s your space, make sure you feel great when you spend time in it!
