Redecorating your home is a project that you must have had on your mind and may have finally gotten around to do. Because it is a process that takes a lot of effort and time, it is a sure thing that you would not want anything to go wrong. You may have found many things in the research, and your dear ones may have also showered you with a lot of recommendations.
We understand if that has left you feeling overwhelmed, and that is what we are here to help you with. Following are the selective vital details that you should pay attention to for ensuring that you leave no base uncovered.
Mix and Match
It is an art to have stunning decor without any efforts; play a clever game of mix and match. As much as you may feel drawn towards the idea of selecting everything matching from the same catalog, please resist the urge to do so. Trust us; the sameness is something that will come to bug you later.
So, if you can foresee a situation like us, there is a way out. Pick things that will complement each other. For example, if you are bent on having dark-colored flooring, have the furniture in lighter tones. Similarly, if you wonder whether or not your fireplace inserts will match the decor, we suggest you look at your mantle style. While trying to find the perfectly fitting style, keep the size and the fit in mind coordinated and blended after installation.
Muted and Natural Color Palette
Mostly, you may have caught yourself getting super thrilled on a particular shade of color after seeing it in a magazine. In such cases, it is essential to remember that what may look great in angled and staged pictures with a lot of artificial lighting may not look good in real life. Generally, dark colors on the walls tend to make a room appear much smaller than its natural size.
The key here is to go neutral with the colors you choose for the room. Light and open colors let the natural light play its magic. Also, keeping the walls in muted and pastel shades will help you to accentuate other accessories in a much better way. On top of everything else, bright colors can be difficult to change after a short period if you dislike them. So, this is the safest bet to go with.
Sometimes, when you get into redecorating the entire place, it is easy to lose track of important and needed things. Therefore, keeping steadily close to a fixed list would help you to get everything that you need.
For example, if you have an office corner in your living room, it would be practical to get all your office things first in the order of your need. For a better working experience, you may want some shelves, a folding table, a new chair or some other paraphernalia as well. Tick them off as you get them. This way, it will help you to prevent missing out on essentials for your work. Hence, remember the motto- Establish the functionality first and style after that.
A well-lit place glows like nothing else. And this is why investing some time figuring out the dynamics of lighting in your house is bound to pay. While putting lights in every square meter of your home may not seem to be feasible, there are some more innovative ways to do it right.
Choose a corner you want to pull the attention to and install amber lighting for a diffused effect. Similarly, illuminate the corners which otherwise would go unnoticed. You can also hand the lights in a structural way for some added character.
The list can go on and on, but we hope you must have developed an idea by now. It is effortless to get carried away to do everything all at once, leading to stress pretty quickly. The trick to accentuate gradually, consequently adding things as time passes. It will also allow you to put memorable additions to your home rather than store-bought aesthetics. Happy Redecorating!
