What’s the first thing that catches your eye when you visit someone’s house? Most of you would probably answer is the manner of how they’ve furnished their house, right? The furnishing can tell a lot about a person’s preferences, and this simply applies to everyone.
If you have thoughts of styling or decorating your home, it would require a lot of planning and execution. It needs plenty of time and can’t be accomplished in the spur of the moment. You need to be updated with the latest trends, compute your budget and many more. This would be really difficult for homeowners who have never done this job before. Bigger are the chances that you might not achieve the desired perfection in the end. You will definitely need a home builder or interior designer who can turn your dream house into a reality.
So if you need a guide in finding and fixing your dream house, here are several aspects and rules when decorating your house.
Pick a Colour Pattern
Every colour has a different purpose. If you are choosing colours for your rooms, such as the kitchen, bathrooms, and etc, you need to be aware that having the same code of colour pattern won’t suit all the places. You might feel choosing one single colour for all the four walls of the rooms. However, this is not a good idea. It will just make your room appear plain and boring.
When choosing a colour for a particular room, the colour is bound to influence the ambience of that area. So, instead of choosing just one colour, you need to have at least three.
- 1st Colour- Nude (For the front wall)
- 2nd Colour- Eye-Catching (Fo highlighting your furniture)
- 3rd Colour- Emphasizer (Stresses stuff in your room like a photo frame, or flowerpot)
Choosing Your Furniture
After you’re done coming up with the colour combination for the four walls your room, the next thing you need to do is to look up for furniture that will be ornamenting your house. There are two objectives behind putting the furniture in your living space. The first one is that it should be suitable for you to use and should not be put merely as a display. Secondly, when you choose furniture, it should be in line with the colour combination of your room. There would be plenty of people who would mistakenly fill their rooms with whatever they feel like putting, ending to a cluttered place. Also, do not fill up your space with one kind of furniture.
Organization is Important
As a family, it’s normal to have a lot of stuff. That’s why it’s advised to have mega storage everywhere. Have some type of organization systems in your closets, storage racks in the garage, and even built-ins above and under your wall-mounted TV. Try to maximize the space you have in your house and innovative storage without constraining your space.
Add Some Outdoor Entertainment
If you’re looking for an affordable way of adding square footage to your home without literally doing it, you can add a deck or patio to solve the problem. They are a great way to extend your indoor living outside. Even furniture and decors today are meant for outdoor use, so don’t be scared to explore.
Doing all of these would get even better if you use energy-efficient fixtures and appliances that will not only save you some money but also help save the planet. It’s definitely the way to go.
