Remember wall decals? They aren't just for kids' rooms anymore. Today's wall decals — rebranded under the term removable wallpaper — are a great way to make a big design statement for relatively little effort and upfront cost. With a press-and-stick installation method. plus the ability to peel the design off and throw it away at the end of your lease. this method should be a go-to pick for any renter.
Every room in your home needs a focal point. Since concrete is such a heavy material to work with. when it's used in design. it lends a ton of visual weight to the room. This means it will instantly draw the eye and ground the space. All told. these factors make concrete an excellent choice to become a focal point in your home.

Whatever application you choose for your concrete — whether it's a fireplace. countertop. or coffee table — it should be properly stained. sealed and polished.Be sure to ask the manufacturer how to maintain your specific items. As a general rule. simply sweeping away general debris and washing it with a non-abrasive cleaner is the way to go.

You should also pay attention to the colors in your concrete and be sure to choose contrasting shades for the rest of the room.Looking for a focal point. Problem solved? It's an instant focal point
