Let the Light In
Natural light does wonders for a home and makes rooms more inviting. Take down heavy drapery and replace with gauzy and airy fabrics. If you have views, play them up!
Look into roman shades, which help with privacy but also let light in.
Simple curtain panels made from airy fabrics like cotton twill or translucent linen will let the light in during the day and still help with privacy at night.
Do you have a designated junk room?
Re-purpose rooms that have lost their identity.
Most designers look at junk rooms and envision fantasy spaces: an exercise room, meditation space, art studio, etc.
Re-purpose a clutter/junk room into something that will add value to the house.
Also consider loft spaces, stairwell nooks and other areas not utilized or gathering dust as possible areas for increased space.
