change a room color without repainting

I love playing with colors in my home. Changing the color in my living room used to be a big job. I used to have to repaint the entire room to change the color scheme but have since learned to keep the walls and flooring neutral. Using accent colors in the room can make it very easy to change the overall appearance of the room without going to the expense or work of repainting. My blog will show you what you can do to change the color in your rooms without having to go through the process of painting the entire room.

3 Things To Consider When Designing Custom Closets

Martin Horton

Many homeowners are looking for ways to redesign their closet to create more space. Instead of having to try to cram everything into a small space, they want a way to accommodate everything they have without feeling so restricted. After all, you don't want to pull a shirt out of the closet only to have it all wrinkled and worn. You want to be able to find what you need in a relatively short amount of time. If you are in the market for a custom closet, there are a few things you need to consider to make sure you get the closet you need.

Height

One of the first things to think about is how tall you are. If you are only five-foot tall, you don't want a closet bar that is so high up you are going to struggle to reach it. On the other hand, you don't want your shirts hanging on the ground if you are someone who is seven-foot tall either. The key is designing the closet height based on those who are using it. You can always have the bars on one side a little higher than the other side. That allows both individuals to make use of their space.

Number of bars

Another thing to consider is whether you want a single bar that goes around the perimeter of the closet or you want a double bar to maximize hanging space for your shirts. Double bars work great when you might not have a lot of space, but you want to take advantage of high ceilings and make the most use of your current closet space. This allows you to use one bar for shirts and the other one for pants, eliminating the need for a bunch of dressers.

Shelving

Shelving is a great way to store shoes, sweaters, sweatshirts and other items. You can easily create a customized system that provides you ample storage space and helps minimize the amount of dressers needed to store everything in your room. The best part is that you can easily design your shelves to be any size in height, width or depth to best accommodate your space inside the closet, as well as what you plan on storing on them.

By taking the above into account, you can figure out what you are going to need to make your closet space one that is going to work for you.
