At Woodstock Furniture & Mattress Outlet, we enjoy helping local homeowners in the Atlanta area redecorate their homes. We understand that redecorating a room can seem like a big project and may be a little overwhelming at first, but with the right approach, you can completely rejuvenate your living space. Here are five of our favorite easy and unique redecorating ideas:
Add a focal point with a pop of color
Did you know that furniture can affect your mood? The shape and size of your furniture, as well as its color can play a big role in how you feel while you’re at home.
When redecorating, keep in mind how much furniture you have in one room. A large den or living room may be able to accommodate many pieces while those living in a small apartment should strive to keep it simple. No matter what size your home, it is helpful to pick a piece of furniture that can serve as a focal point for your room, and if this piece of furniture can add a pop of color, even better!
Go crazy with paint
Painting is an obvious way of instantly transforming a room, but you don’t have to stick to the standard, solid colored walls. Consider painting one wall in a room a different color than the other walls to draw the eye to a certain area.
You can also get creative with patterns. Vertical or horizontal stripes are a common and easy way to add visual appeal to a boring room, but you can also go crazy with painter’s tape and create a geometric, abstract work of art. Not sure about which colors work well together? Opt for one bright color (think jewel tones or colorful primaries) paired with a neutral like black, white, or gold.
Seeking a softer, rustic look? Try tearing one edge of your painter’s tape to create an unexpected texture on your walls, like artist Jillian Taylor did for a DIY contest sponsored by the blog Design Sponge.
Change your bedding, change your mood
Swapping out your bedspread or duvet cover can instantly add new life to a boring bedroom. Whether you prefer to update your bed linens seasonally (a light blanket may be all you need for warm Southern summers) or just when the mood strikes you, picking new bedding can offer a quick and easy way to liven up your bedroom decor.
A heavy quilt, comforter, or bedspread are great for winter, but these thick fabrics can be hard to wash and clean. A visually striking duvet cover can be conveniently slipped off of the duvet insert for easy washing.
Get playful with pillows
Whether on your bed or on your couch, colorful throw pillows can be a quick and easy way to bring print and pattern to a room, without overwhelming the eye.
By adding accent pillows with funky designs and textures, you can opt to keep the rest of your room’s decor fairly simple and timeless. If you enjoy mixing the modern with the traditional (like we do!), a peppy throw pillow is a perfect way to marry the contemporary with the classic.
Tidy up the mess
Sometimes we feel like we need to redecorate when what we really need is to de-clutter. If your space is overrun with paperwork, books, tchotchkes and random keepsakes, tidy up and store away rarely needed items that aren’t worth looking at on a daily basis.
Use storage baskets and bins to keep spare items out of sight, or look for furniture pieces like a sectional sofa that offers hidden storage compartments to keep remotes and other necessities tucked away.
Get professional decorating advice
If you’re ready for a change but don’t really know where to start, turn to the professionals at Woodstock Furniture & Mattress Outlet. We’ll gladly work with you to help you design the room or rooms of your dreams.
Our interior design team is staffed with professionals who are extremely knowledgeable about the latest design trends in the industry and can work with you to create a room that meets your specific aesthetic preferences.

Our ultimate goal is to help you create a space that reflects your family’s lifestyle in a way that is not just attractive, but also practical.
