There are many things to consider when decorating your new home. People sometimes just jump into moving their furniture and splashing on new paint which doesn’t work well with the current decorations. Here are some tips to help you with your future decor plans.
Lighting, well it lights up the room. Getting the right kind of lighting can change the look of the room drastically. If the room needs to be well light buy strong lights, if it needs to have a moody atmosphere you should try dimmers.
It’s important to have some sort of well planned budget before you start with your decorations. Money is the most important part of this project (unless you have a lot of decorations already). If you have furniture to buy calculate how much it deducts from your decoration budget so that you will exactly know what you can use. Otherwise if you buy with credit you’ll only land in debt.
The theme is just as important as the budget. If you don’t know what kind of theme you will use for your house or room then you won’t know where to start. Sit down and read through home magazines, go online and look at rooms and houses for ideas or call your designer friend for some tips. Some themes include Japanese, Asian, Mexican, Victorian or Modern. Picking the right duvet makes a big difference, even using something as simple as a luggage set makes a big difference in a victorian room.
Use the theme as an extension of your personality. Picking a room with a crazy personality won’t fit if you have a calm and relaxing personality.
Make a list of all the items you have in your room and see what needs to be fixed, replaced with new furniture or removed completely. You should buy new items to fit with the plans you have for the room as well as reupholster your furniture that you have if it doesn’t.
It’s important to buy the correct home appliances for your rooms and house. An appliance can make a big difference in the feel of the room. If you buy chrome kitchen appliances if gives off a modern feel where plastic kitchen appliances another.
