How to Inject More Visual Decorating into a Boring Room. A boring room could have several reasons for delivering a blah feeling. Your color scheme may be matched perfectly, your furniture set to a specific style, but there just seems to be that wow factor missing. Here are some ideas that will juice up that boring room with furniture and accessories that add visual meaning and depth.
Antiques Add Substance
The technology of today may offer ease and affordability in decorating a room, but the craftsmanship of yesterday will always hold a powerful statement. From tongue and groove dressers, to colored glassware, the mind secretly wants to hold onto the magical essence of simpler days. Try adding a few antiques to a contemporary designed room, like an antique brass vase or a vintage hand-blown glass candy dish. Use an old dresser or a pedestal side table to break up the sameness of a style and feel the warmth of the room as soon as you enter.
Wall Hangings that Send a Message
They say that art is in the eye of the beholder but think twice before adding framed works to your walls. Many people like to play it safe with scenic pictures that match their color scheme. While this may add the right flow of style, these types of framed prints also go unnoticed. Walls should come alive with a powerful message about who you are and bring meaning to a room. For instance, if your ethnic background is important to you, show it off with simple framed sketches or paintings that deliver substance.
Display Your Collectibles or Memorabilia
Use collectibles like license plates, signed autographs, or vintage records to show off your interests and personality. Don’t be afraid to add action or emotion to walls to portray your inner feelings.

Adding height to “the smallest room in the house!”
Reality shows for flipping houses can offer many unique ideas for outfitting a room to catch the eye of a buyer. Shelves using repurposed tin and barn siding are popular DIY projects that can make a room visually attractive. These items can add dimension in just the right places. Real estate education courses for house flipping are available for the serious investor, but the ideas of decorating are free.
When you add your own personal touch and use the right sources, the impact upon a room are indescribable. Other suggestions include pillows with unusual prints, tapestries on walls, and sea glass sun catchers in windows. Only you know the elements that describe your inner feelings and desires, so use this knowledge to create a room that takes your breath away.
