What Houzz contributors are saying:
In this photo, the rug’s colorful geometric pattern sets the multicolor tone for the room.To prevent a chaotic feel with this palette, be sure to balance your multicolor explosion with a neutral color on another large surface, such as the walls or a large piece of furniture. Here, the simple neutral walls showcase the myriad colors around the room while helping the space feel a bit calmer.
7. Bonus space. When you have kids, extra space is always a good thing. Look for an area of the home that has the potential to be used in a number of different ways, from playroom to home office to nursery for a future sibling. If the space (attic, basement) is not finished, find out what it would take to make this area usable in the future.
3. Easy fix: Fresh carpeting. Stained, worn-out carpeting is a real bummer, and it can be hard to see past it when viewing a potential home. But ripping out old carpeting and putting in something new — especially something as fresh and fun as the colorful carpet tiles shown here — can make a huge difference in how a space looks and feels.
