In Home Consultations—What to expect
Schedule an appointment with a consultant today! Just give us a call. Even if you have a busy lifestyle, we can make an appointment that works with your schedule. Generally this initial meeting only lasts about an hour. During our visit to your home or office, we will discuss options for your new room. Together, we can explore ideas on furniture placement, color, budget, and time frame. While there, we will take measurements of the space or spaces and may take photos so that we can create an accurate floor plan.
After the in home consultation, we will put together a floor plan, furniture suggestions, and fabric and finish selections. We recommend the follow up consultation be at the store so that we can show you all of your options. Our free design consultations are just another way that Jack's offers personalized service to make your home everything you want it to be and more.
Design Tips from Jack's
9 tips for creating a great room
1. Decide the Focal Point of your space.
Most rooms today have more than one center of interest. Often it's the TV. Some other examples are a fireplace, an awesome view, a great piece of art, or an interesting rug.
2. Make the facing wall interesting.
What people see when they walk into your room is called the facing wall. It gives guests their very first impression of your room. It should say something about your style and be more exciting.
3. Consider the traffic patterns of your room carefully.
Think about whether the space is frequently used to get to other areas of your home. Where you route traffic will affect the room's main function. Make sure to route traffic around TV viewing areas and conversation groupings.
4. When choosing furniture, patterns, textures, and colors consider flow.
Flow is the way the visitor's eye is led around the room. Flow is determined by what you put in the room and where you put it.
5. Choose the correct scale of furniture and accessories for your room.
The size of furniture in comparison to each other is also very important. Think about the size of your space and the people who use it when deciding whether to use larger scale pieces.
6. Make sure the pieces in your room including art and accessories look balanced.
The more something attracts our eye, the more it "weighs" visually. The two basic types of balance are symmetrical and asymmetrical. Mixing both types of balance establishes visual stability in the room.
7. Make sure the pieces you have chosen are in proportion to each other and the space.
Keep in mind, small pieces look larger when placed in a small space and large pieces look smaller in a large space. Don't mix very small furniture with large overstuffed furniture.
8. When choosing patterns, be sure they give the feel, balance, and flow you want for the space.
It's ok to mix patterns, but anchoring the mixture with a solid color is best. Also consider the scale of the pattern. The main pattern should have every color in the room.
9. Don't be afraid to mix textures.
Smooth shiny pieces are more formal. Rough or coarse textures have a casual feel. Soft textures are more feminine while rough textures are more masculine.
Your feelings about color can be very personal. So, when searching for the perfect color palette for your room, consider these things:
- What is your favorite color?
- What colors make you feel good?
- What color do you like to wear?
- What colors have you regretted buying in the past and would never buy again?
Different colors affect us in different ways. Here are some interesting facts about color to consider before finalizing your color choices.
BLUE: Cool and soothing. It can change a lot in different lighting conditions. Blue is great for bedrooms. It has also been found to be good for productivity.
GREEN Serene and friendly. Brings to mind nature. Like blue, can be relaxing. It is a healing color. Lighter shades are easier to live with. Green makes a great background color.
RED Exciting and stimulating. Red is a great color, but because it is so stimulating, it should be used carefully. It makes a great accent color.
YELLOW Bright and cheery. Yellow makes us think of the sun. It can make us feel energetic and happy. Intense yellows, however, can be difficult to tolerate. If you are considering this color, buttery yellows are easier to incorporate into your room and may be easier to live with.
ORANGE Warm and welcoming. Tangerine and yellow-orange are bright and cheerful and can increase appetite. When you use it with brown it offers a warm and comfortable feeling
PURPLE Dramatic. In history, purple was the color of royalty. Lighter shades such as lavender tend to be very feminine.
BROWN Soothing and comfortable. Brown is good for rooms that are used a lot. It's great for family rooms. Has a broad range of neutrals which can be used for any type of room. Combine with red or other bold colors to create a more exciting look.
