Are you overwhelmed by the thought of decorating your home? Worry not.I have gathered pointers fromthe leading designers that can help you make sense of what great design for your home really means. Always strive to pay attention to details about the space(s) you wish to decorate. It is a very important principle. A stylish yet comfortable home is key. Therefore, if you are willing to master some basic principles for decorating your home, here are a few pointers to put your innovation to the test.
Try-out different patterns.
A convenient way to add visual interests to your rooms is by layering patterns in a range of scales and styles. Also if you are more reserved about choices of colors, it would be great to step out of your zone of comfort and choose a bold tone for spaces like your hallways. It won’t be so obvious hence can be a backdrop for showcasing your spectacular collection of art.
Plan to decorate room by room.
Decorating your whole home all at once can be tiresome. Even the thought of it is overwhelming. It is advisable to pick first the rooms that you deem important to you and make a décor plan, room by room. Could be your laundry room, bedroom, or living room. Choose one or two rooms maximum and make a plan to beautify them one by one to your satisfaction.
Avoid the design myth of choosing to match all the rooms in the house. If you wish to have a modern American toilet and a transitional living room, by all means, go for it! Decorate your house from scratch, room by room, and let it have a personality. Though it is recommended that you at least add a unifying detail to all the rooms, like the color of your curtains or an item in your house’s architectural design.
Begin with the room’s biggest pieces first.
Now that you have a broken down decorating plan, use the same principle in finding the most significant piece(s) in the room. It’s usually the most expensive, most important and gets the most use in a given room, like a bed, wardrobe or a closet. Place this piece at the most preferred area and work your way from there. In your living room, pick your couches. For your dining room, it goes without saying that the dining table comes first.
Consider pieces of advice from experts.
A lot of stores offer their customers with design services for free. But even if it’s not for free, some still offer these services from design professionals, at low cost, and can be helpful when you are stuck. Hence helping you in making the right choices, the first time around. This saves you a lot of money, time and energy.
Pain becomes your newfound buddy
Choose the color of your choice for each room and repaint the room in that color. Avoid being safe at this juncture and pick a bold and vibrant color. Or perhaps go for a light grey or a neutral mocha shade instead of doing plain white. The shade from smaller accessories like vases, rugs or pillows helps in tying the room together. The best part is, you can always repaint a room instead of the whole house if a color bores you.
Over time, add a layer to each room.
New ideas on how you want a room to function or look like always stream in a few years or months down the road. This is because home decoration is not a sprint but a marathon hence it can never be done all at once. The pieces you would want to address over a certain period include Flooring or carpets, window treatments, splashes of accent color, lighting, storage, accent tables, wall art and textiles like pillows.
It is that simple to decorate and have a home improvement. Make a decoration plan, pick a style of your choice, prioritize the rooms in your house and begin the improvement process. With all this in mind, your home will definitely have a personality and will be put together perfectly, in no time. Let the house speak for itself.
