For a house to truly feel like home, the decor should express your unique style. Whether you’re moving into a brand-new house or buying lived-in property, create living spaces that are comfortable and make you feel at home.
When it comes to the decor planning, keep these tips in mind.
A New Beginning
A new home gives you the chance to design and decorate exactly how you want. It’s a blank canvas waiting to bring your ideas to life! Spend time looking at home decor magazines and websites to get a sense of what appeals to you. See what’s trending and how you can incorporate these styles into your master plan.
Decorating an entire house takes a lot of planning. Living rooms, bedrooms, dining rooms and other living spaces will each have their own look but try to have one theme tie them all together.
Think about the styles that suit you, from minimalism to post-modern, and figure out how you can bring that theme to the furniture, appliances and paint colors in each room. Don’t be afraid to experiment, knowing you can always renovate a room if it doesn’t feel right.
Homes don’t complete themselves! Many interior designers agree that major decorating should take place before you move in or right after. If you can, take care of major projects like wall painting, new floors and moving heavy furniture as soon as possible, so it’s easier to settle in.
Otherwise, finish these tasks within the first month, so you’re not living among the clutter of moving boxes.
Remember the Small Things
Don’t stress if you have the same couch as a friend or neighbor. The personal touches are what set your home apart from the rest. Add pictures, wall art and table decor to each room that’s unique to your lifestyle. You may have family heirlooms and other uniquely crafted pieces that no one else does, so be sure to display these proudly!
