Perhaps the kitchen is your bete noir? If it is you can do a lot with some new blinds and lampshades. Try some potted plants on the window ledge this can brighten most kitchens. If the paint-work really is past its prime then you need to decide whether you need a whole new paint job or whether you can get away with touching up the doors and base boards. If your bedroom needs a face-lift then try some new bed covers and toning curtains. Add a few cushions to your bed and you immediately have a more luxurious look.
Floating shelves dont have traditional brackets that can hinder your efforts to create beautiful wall designs. Instead, they have internal brackets that usually run the entire depth of the shelf. They are installed in such a way that you never see the bracket at all. This is done by sliding the shelving onto the brackets by way of an opening in the back of the shelf. This method creates a cleaner and much sleeker look to the shelves. By using this type of shelving, you have the ability to put your shelves anywhere. Even the smallest places will not look cluttered when you install floating shelves.
