Decorating Your Home From the Floor to Windows

Sometimes, people wait until they’re ready to sell their home before they actually decorate it. They might think they’ll only be in the home for a short time, or they’re daunted by the sheer volume of the task. At Altra Home Décor here in Phoenix, we’re happy to give you a few tips.

Then decide on color and texture. Remember, flooring is expensive. If you can’t do it all at once, keep the color similar at least throughout the downstairs area. Hardwood is usually the best way to go because it doesn’t show wear and tear like carpeting, and most people can get large area rugs to warm it up. [Read more…]

Duette® Honeycomb Shades

When you walk into a room, what do you see first, the walls or the windows? Did you know that color plays a large role in establishing the focal point of the room? Put color where you want your eye to go. If you add color to the window, that is what you will see first. If the window’s frame is white and the window treatment is also white, it will blend in, and the walls and accessories will be the focus. Talk to a trained consultant at Altra Home Décor. We’ve been working with customers all over the Phoenix area, and we’ll be happy to help you determine what works best for your home. [Read more…]
