Did you also spend your weekend bingeing the latest season of Queer Eye? While we love all members of the Fab 5, we do have a soft spot for Mr. Bobby Berk, interior designer extraordinaire, who always surprises us with his attainable home makeovers. Here are the most major decor takeaways we had from Season 4:
1. Use curtains and paint to make ceilings look higher.
In the third episode, Bobby takes the frat boy look out of a single dad's home. In the bedroom where the ceilings were quite low, Bobby used some clever trickery, hanging curtains from ceiling-to-floor. The painted ceiling and border also helps to give the room a more cavernous feeling.
2. For hotel-like luxury, put lighting behind the bed.
This season, we learned one of Bobby's new favorite things — installing lighting behind a headboard. It instantly makes a bedroom feel more inviting, as well as more polished.
3. Wheelchair-accessible bathrooms need angled mirrors.
In the second episode, we learned a lot about how problematic most homes are for people in wheelchairs. One detail we especially appreciated was how Bobby placed the bathroom mirror on a downward angle — makes sense!
4. Faux wood panels can — gasp! — look chic.
Fake wood paneled walls might feel like a cheap trend of the '70s, but Bobby has taught us that you can make them stylish — with the right paint and textures. Here, Bobby achieves a more stylish, midcentury feel.
5. Paint a fireplace a dark color to give it sophistication.
In the finale, Bobby makes over a farmhouse, and we were surprised to see how classy the fireplace now looks painted in an inky hue.
6. Go bold in a kitchen — and not just with the cabinets.
Drill team leader Wanda will now most definitely want to use her whimsical kitchen. Painting cabinets is a favored tip of Bobby's, but we love how he continued this punchy pink on the walls as well. The result is beyond instagrammable.
