It’s finally time for you to decorate your new house. You didn’t mind the look of your old place, but this time around you want things done differently. Your new home needs to be revamped, modernized, and revitalized. You want its new look to be fresh -a true expression of your unique style. You shouldn’t have to settle for anything less. As you design and decorate your home, consider these simple tips
Bare walls have their place, but that place may not be in your new home. Before you select your furniture and decorations, remember that your walls should be a canvas to showcase your creativity. Add colour and context to your home by spicing up your walls a bit. A patterned accent wall draws the eye to your favourite areas. Bold, fresh colours can separate spaces in your home without the use of curtains and walls. Keep your home alive by challenging your conception of ordinary wall spaces.
Keep in mind, of course, that light colours will open up a living space, while darker colours may be too claustrophobic for smaller spaces.
You’ve got the new house and you’ve got the new walls. What’s next? You’d be surprised how much flooring matters. The type of flooring you choose for your home makes all the difference.
- Carpeting can soften a room, making it a more cosy space. If durability is a factor, Berber carpeting is created from Olefin, a type of plastic material. Don’t worry, it’s still soft and comfy to walk on, but Berber is stain resistant and ideal for high traffic.
- Tile lends to a more tropical or contemporary flavour. Italian tile is popular for its dark, rich colours and you won’t have to worry about ease of cleaning, especially if you choose a medium to dark grout colour.
- Wood is classic, but always modern and elegant. If your budget won’t allow solid wood, Pergo is a type of wood flooring that will stand the test of time without the price tag that comes with solid wood.
Each of these flooring types have unique designs, textures and colours that can make your floors stand out where you need them to and blend in when you don’t. Consider the overall message of your home. Are you a classy banquet host or the family friendly designer extraordinaire? Your floors can tell your guests exactly what kind of house they’re in.
For a contemporary yet classic look, wicker furniture is ideal. Choose styles and designs that blend seamlessly into your new interior theme or select the pieces that make your home pop with unique design flavor. Synthetic wicker furniture is durable, long-lasting and weather resistant. It can stand up to the wear and tear of a busy household and can also be used outdoors for family gatherings and special events. It’s sleek and modern, making perfect accent pieces for even the most sophisticated home projects.
It’s in the details. Decorating is all about which accents you use and where you place them. Each décor detail should be intentional. Choose only what you need to accent your living spaces without cluttering it. The idea is to reduce cramping and to draw attention to what really matters: your style.
From new flooring to wicker furniture to bold paint, you can transform your home and create a fresh look that’s all you. Writing out or drawing your plan may make your shopping and designing experience more organized, but remember to have fun. This is your chance to have the home you’ve always wanted, designed by the one and only you.
