It’s the desire and dream of every young person to have a home which they can
call their own and which is distinctly different from their parents’ house. It
doesn’t matter whether it’s just a crib, a pad or a love nest. Having achieved
that objective, the next step is to fill up the empty spaces of the home with
whatever you think will suit your temperament and also impress your friends and
relatives. However, before you start your Home Decorating project you should
count what you have in your bank and how much you can spare to undertake this
project. Depending upon your available resources you have to determine as to how
far you can go towards attaining your ideal living environment.
It is not necessary to spend a lot of money or time for your Home Decorating
process. On the other hand, you can achieve great results merely by using the
elements of decoration in out-of-the-ordinary ways. It does not matter what the
original purpose of any item may be – you can always modify its use to create a
great effect. What really matters is how well you can fit it into your Home
Decorating plan. Here is an opportunity for you to let loose all your creative
talents and act as you want in order to decorate your house in the way that you
feel will give the best results.
Your plans for Home Decorating must have a strong base of self-confidence. You
will get great results if you believe in what you are doing. As a first step,
you should find out what sort of décor you would like to have and then you can
take the help of design books, magazines, design shows on television and visit
model homes in order to get ideas which you should note down. You can then do
some self-interrogation regarding the suitability of a formal or casual look, or
whether the proposed color is light or dark or whether there is too much empty
space. You can then find out the design elements that you will enjoy.
Do not be afraid of experimenting with colors as it is only through colors
that you can express your Home Decorating ideas and thus create exquisite,
pleasant and comfortable rooms.
You should also remember that your little individual touches to the Home
Decorating scheme will convert your house into your home. The areas where you
can add your own individuality are: crown molding, tiling, stenciling,
wainscoting/bead board, decorating a tank lever in the bath, hanging several
items on the walls, and judicious use of mirrors to give the room more length
You should also explore the possibilities of decorating the flooring as
kitchens and baths can be brightened up by the use of bright tiles and unique
color pairings. You can also endeavor a fun statement in your Home Decorating
scheme by combining black and white or purple and yellow. Even in the case of
carpets, if you are thinking of replacing them, you can get rid of the mundane
natural browns and beiges and try out your favorite colors.
Windows and fixtures are very important in the Home Decorating process and
you can attempt to get rid of the basic blinds and layer fabrics in the colors
of your choice. Dangling chandeliers in place of basic lighting fixtures can
also be a great idea. Your window treatment can be further accentuated by using
a simple rod packet and sewing two fabrics together.
You should consider Home Decorating not as a daunting task but a pleasurable
activity with the sole intention of beautifying your home with the things that
you would love to have. It is all about having the colors, the furnishings and
other collections that you fancy and wish to have in your home. Decorating your
home is never static as it is always a work in progress evolving throughout your
