Idea of the Week!

Posted on: July 10, 2007

Ever feel like you just need a change? Stuck in a rut or just tired of the same old thing? Try redecorating your room! It’s all about switching things up. Just rearranging your furniture can spruce things up a bit and even give you the feeling of moving somewhere new without ever leaving your house. If changing your furniture around doesn’t seem appealing or there’s no way you can convince your parents or guardian it’s a good idea, turn your redecoration adventures into a shopping trip. Thrift stores, flea markets, even your attic or basement, can be great places to find new things for your room at super cheap prices. Try adding a new throw rug to your floor or a few paintings or pictures to your walls to give your space new life.

One of my favorite things to do is to go to video rental and sales stores to browse for posters. A lot of times they have bins of old posters that they’re giving away for free and sometimes you can even request that one of them be kept for you when it’s taken down!

If you’re finding it hard to channel the creative juices needed to redecorate, try looking through magazines and catalogs at different advertisements and pictures of rooms to get ideas for what you might like to do. Also, if you’ve got a competitive streak, challenge your friends to re-do their rooms too, take before and after pictures, and have someone judge whose room makeover was the best.

Summer is a new season, so why not celebrate it by treating yourself to a new space? Remember to check with your parent or guardian to make sure their ok with your redecorating plan. If they’re cool with your ideas, let the redecorating begin!

That’s all for now,
