The Right Décor and Design for Your Home


If you want to redecorate your home, why not take the time to make sure that you are getting precisely what you want? Sometimes it isn’t enough to just choose a new colour scheme; you really need to make it personal so that you feel completely relaxed in your own home.

Tips for Choosing the Décor

Most people will use sample pots to paint small sections of the wall so that they can see what the colour looks like on them. This is a good idea but take the time to really consider which colours you like, not just which ones look good in that particular room. Think about the type of furniture you have; are you going to be changing it? Will the colour that you’ve chosen work well with your plans for the furniture? If not, then you either need to consider choosing a different shade or finding some new furniture. Can your existing furniture be upcycled? All of these things will have an impact on how the finished room looks.

Soft furnishings are an essential part of any room. If you have decided to keep the design and décor neutral, then these are an instant pop of colour, and when you decide you want to lift the look of the room, you can change them. Cushion covers, rugs and lampshades are all easy to change options. A good rug can even give a room a feeling of warmth and luxury, so they are an inexpensive investment but one that will reap rewards. As they come in all shapes and sizes, it does not matter what size your room is; there will be one that fits.

Finishing Touches

It is imperative not to forget a few finishing touches to ensure the room has that really homely feel. Artwork on the walls is a good idea. Whether you want to go for one large image or create a display of smaller pieces is really up to you, as long as it is what you want and suits your personal taste. If you are looking for a vintage feel to your home, look for older-style frames for your wall art, as these will create a focal point and catch the eye. You could create a display of family photos or even artwork produced by the children at school, the choice is yours, but it will really help complete the look.
