    "My thanks to Chris and Damon for their nice work on my house. They worked hard, got things done in the time they had predicted, and were polite and professional. Their work was very good- the living room ceiling looks fabulous, as there was quite a bit of water damage before. I am very pleased with the results, exactly what I wanted. Thanks so much."

    Are you looking to update a certain room in your home? Looking for Cleveland Contractors to tackle all of your home repair needs? Call Reilly Painting, and take a look at some of these helpful tips courtesy of eHow Home:

    Focal Point

    One or two focal points should be selected in a room before decorating begins. While many people opt for a natural focal point like a fireplace, a focal point can be any large element in the room which draws the eye's attention. The focal point prevents the room from becoming too busy since all additional elements in the room should draw the eye to it.


    Proportion deals with the size of objects in relation to the other objects in the room, as well as the room itself, according to the Creative Home Web site. A large piece such as a piano or an overstuffed sofa would look disproportionate in a small room.


    There are two types of visual balance---symmetrical and asymmetrical. For example, a table in a room has two identical candlesticks placed on it, one on each end. This is symmetrical balance; the two candlesticks are a mirror image to one another. Asymmetrical balance is achieved when two dissimilar objects are used to balance one another visually. Using the same table example one of the accessories might still be a candlestick, but the other might be an object such as a thin vase. They both have similar visual weights but are not mirror images of one another. However, their size and placement balances the space.
