Decorating Ideas For Your Den In Omaha

What is A Den?

A den is a room in the home where adults can go to enjoy some privacy.  The Den is a room that means many different things to different people.  It has different meanings in different parts of the US too.  It may be a study or a place to read.  Some people may use the den area for watching TV or a thousand other activities.  What sets the den apart from a family room is that the den is often a place for adults to relax or get away for quiet work.  In some homes, children aren’t allowed in the den.  A den may also be where your office is but that’s not a hard and fast rule either.  What sets the den apart from a living room is that a living room is often arranged to entertain guests.  Whether it is a formal area or more relaxed, it is often larger than a den and designed for company.  In earlier years a parlor or formal living room was an area of the house people seldom went into unless guests were over.

Decorating Ideas For Your Den in Omaha

Depending on the size of the area you have to decorate, you may include large sectional seating or you may prefer comfortable chairs and ottomans.  A Den should be decorated in a style that is easy, laid back and not too busy.  The quiet room above is a good example of using neutral colors and a balanced design to create a calm relaxing space.  The pillows further accentuate the atmosphere.  Perfect for reading or watching TV.  The horizontal blinds are an easy window treatment because they come in a multitude of colors and are durable and easy to clean.

Decorating the Modern Den

The den above is another example of using natural organic colors.  These Solera® Soft shades allow you to open the windows from either the top or bottom.  The pillows and throws add a touch of color without overpowering the room.  When you consider decorating ideas for your den in Omaha, you may be guided by what you enjoy.  This should show up in the form of bookshelves if you like to read.  It may also include paintings and artwork that shows your personal taste and style.  You may decide decorating the modern den with your favorite collection allows you to enjoy your treasure more than if it were in a more formal part of the house.

Small Dens and Cozy Corners

Not everyone has the luxury of a bonus room or spare room to turn into a den.  You may only have a small corner to decorate.  Many times the area has corner windows or too many windows that make furniture placement harder than in a traditional rectangle room.  You’ll find even if you have just a small area you can add unusual furniture and tables to create a warm cozy spot to relax in.  You may not be able to retreat into a room by itself but you can retreat into a corner of your own.  Having a window near by to look out is an added plus.  The picture above shows how well our Designer Solar Shades work.  They reduce the glare and add enough privacy and light control without blocking your view.  Matching side panels are the perfect touch to this area.
