Does the space in your home look flat and ordinary? Redesign is the art of taking what you already have and recreating your favorite place on earth, your home. One of the simplest places to begin is looking at your furniture in your home in a fresh new way. You have surely thought it before – ”to slipcover or not to slipcover – that is the question.” It doesn’t have quite the ring of Shakespeare to it, but you get the idea. Do you cover your existing sofa with a slipcover, or do you just go out and buy a new one?
When Susan Kostelecky of SK Designs in Houston, Texas needed to design a slipcover for a little girl’s room, she took creativity to a new level when she designed a ”ballerina” slipcover. Decked out in tulle, satin, embroidered flower buds and ribbon, an old wooden rocker with a cane seat has been transformed into the belle of the ball. Not surprisingly, this is the favorite piece of furniture in the room.

Fabrication- Anytime you are about to embark on a custom made piece, do your research. An interior design professional can surely help you with your project. Or use professional organizations to find a reputable workroom, Window Coverings Association of America, for example) and always ask friends and neighbors about their experiences.
Rather than buying expensive furniture and décor that match, look for diverse pieces with a unifying theme, color and style for the family room. A popular trend is cushions that don’t precisely match the couch. You can use the basic couch, but have slipcovers custom made for the cushions and replace them. You can always use the original covers later, always use a vibrant and exciting shade in fabrics.
Think about your lighting – If your room doesn’t have ceiling lights, you will need to prioritize the placing of lamp stands or tables that hold lamps. Work out which areas of the room need brightening during the day and place lamps there to maintain a balance of light in the room. Again, when it comes to night, make sure your lighting is well-balanced.
