Mirror, Mirror on the Wall
Our homes for sale in Jacksonville are all large, spacious, and attractive. When it comes to interior space, though, there’s no such thing as too much. One of the easiest ways to make your home interior look more open is to use mirrors to create the illusion of space. All you have to do is mount a mirror on your wall and then place a small decorative table against it. It’s a simple, cost-effective way to turn your space into something that seems substantially larger than it really is. By reflecting the table decor, it also creates visually attractive symmetry and lets you get a much larger visual impact out of every piece.
From Functional to Fashionable
Obviously, closets and cabinets are very attractive when you’re looking at new homes for sale in Jacksonville. Everyone loves storage space because it’s so convenient and helps keep your home neat and tidy. A lot of people, though, don’t realize the hidden decorating potential lurking in every hall closet or kitchen cabinet. Simply remove the door, and all of a sudden you’ve got a ready-made niche for anything from art to flowers to books to pottery. If you’ve got more storage space than you know what to do with, get out your screwdriver and and you’re on your way to building your very own art installation. A simple coat of paint on the inside is all it takes to glam up your new showcase.
Lamps are a great way to brighten up a room and add some style, but wouldn’t it be more fun to make your own? All you need is a clear wine glass, a tea candle, and some decorative paper. Drop the candle into the wineglass and then make a cone with the paper. Slip it over the top, and you’ve got a tiny, beautiful lamp that will add a great accent to any room. Best of all, they’re so small you can move them wherever you want, whenever you want!
