3 Subtle Touches Everyone Should Add to Their Homes

Sometimes, a room can have everything it needs yet, for some reason, feel empty or incomplete. Often, all it takes is a small subtle touch to tie the whole room together and make it complete. So, here are three things you can do to add that little extra something to any room.

1. Installing Blinds, Shutters, or Awnings

A great way to introduce a little style and practicality to a room is to install some blinds, shutters, or awnings. The right blinds can really make a room feel complete, while at the same time providing it with protection from the sun. Blinds are crucial for blocking out morning sun in bedrooms or stopping glare on your television during the day. When shopping for these blinds, it’s important to find some that are both visually appealing and practical. This will ensure that you get the most out of your purchase and have something that will really add to the room. Luckily, there are companies such as Stylewise Security & Glass that specialise in just this – products that are both stylish and practical.

2. Adding a Subtle Scent

A subtle scent can make a room a lot more pleasant to be in and change the atmosphere completely. Adding a scent is a cheap and effective way to tie a room together. There are many alternatives you can try when adding a scent, so it’s important to choose the one that best suits your individual needs. Sprays and aerosols allow you to manually add a scent to any room as needed; however, they do not add to the style of the room. Incense and candles offer a huge range of different scents and can also be used as decorative pieces. While both candles and incense have the added bonus of having a decorative component, they do have their drawbacks. Both produce smoke, which can be unpleasant in confined spaces. They also leave residue after burning. Each different method has its own pros and cons, so think about your requirements and choose accordingly.

3. Adding Plant Life

Adding some flowers or plant life can really make a room feel complete. With so many different species available, and so many different ways to display them, the possibilities are endless. Anything from a standing pot plant in the corner of a room to a vase of flowers on a table can really bring a room together. While real flowers also have the added benefit of bringing a nice smell to the room, they can die relatively quickly. Fake plants can be a good alternative should you be looking for something a little cheaper and longer lasting.

Knowing how to tie a room together can be a difficult task. Sometimes, it can be hard to know what is needed to make a room feel complete. Thankfully, with these three subtle touches, you’ll be able to make any room feel whole. Have any additional tips you know of to complete a room’s mood and look? Share them in the comments!

    Thanks so much for this! My wife and I are in an apartment with a poor view at the moment, but from what you wrote, I think blinds and awnings are the answer. Just because the view is lacking doesn’t mean that windows can’t be a great addition to a home. We’ve got the subtle scent thing covered (my wife is obsessed with candles) but we’re going to experiment with some awnings. We’ll let you know. Thanks for the post!
