Moving into a new home is exciting, but it could be overwhelming, especially when thinking about decorating. The thought of your new home’s tone, theme, and style could keep your mind busy until you get it right.
Interior decoration is a big deal that could make you love your new home or feel uncomfortable in it. Since many things are involved in interior decoration, ranging from painting to furniture and others, it requires extensive planning to have a pleasant home at the end of the whole process.
One may decide to consult a professional interior decorator to work on the project, but not everyone can afford them. DIY is not bad as well; in fact, it is the best. This is a good idea if you have the time and would love to save money for other needs.
To help you get the perfect interior you desire for your new home, we have carefully developed the five best interior tips. Before sharing the tips, it might make sense to answer some questions that will guide you on the entire process.
What is Your Style?
Your style determines your choice of everything you would put in place to decorate your home. Your style is like a GPS that will guide you to your destination; to avoid wasting time and getting lost, you must follow the GPS.
Generally, there are three standard styles, which are classic, modern, and traditional. You should go with any of the styles that appeal to you, which you should apply in your new home to love living in it.
However, don't be rigid. If you feel the need to mix things up, go ahead. Don't restrict yourself to being a traditional, modern, or classic person.
Finally, select and fashion the fabrics, antiques, paintings, and others in the manner that will portray your style.
What’s Your Budget?
You want a beautiful home, right. However, you don't want to move into a new home without having extra cash for groceries and other necessities. That's why this question is crucial.
The second determinant of a new home interior is "BUDGET." Of course, interior decoration comes with a price to pay, which is money. Regardless, it's possible to have a considerable budget or a decent decoration.
However, a big or small budget doesn’t guarantee a perfect interior. The result of the interior is a factor of one’s power of creativity. Nevertheless, you may have a reasonable budget based on what you want to create in your home (your style).
Have a budget for painting, furniture, fabrics, artworks, and others. Likewise, create a separate budget for each section of the house. Mostly, the living room takes the highest part of the budget. With this, you can easily make the right choice of the necessary items. In concise, be strategic with your cash.
What Are Your Measurements?
At times, some people think this question is not necessary. For example, one shouldn’t purchase furniture without comparing doorway measurement and the room you intend to place it in. Otherwise, one might buy a sofa that would overpower the room, especially a small space.
Therefore, before you start ordering that eye-catching furniture, rug, wallpapers, etc., ensure you have the correct measurements. Note that you will measure each room in the house and write them down. Please measure the width and length along with the height of their ceiling or any obstruction.
You would need to measure the window openings and the length of the wall space above, below, and sides. But, if you don't need any window covering, you can ignore this aspect.
Do You Have Samples?
You can make the interior decoration of your home easier by having collections of samples. Samples serve as ideas of what one wants to see in the house. Colors, textures, themes, tones, and various designs should be present in samples.
Once you know your style, gather different style samples and use them as a reference throughout the designing process.
Now, let’s examine the five best interior tips for your new home.
Here is one aspect that professional interior designers don’t joke with. There is a reason for that. Lighting highlights the features of the home, and they are not only helpful at night. Hence, you must pay attention to this aspect.
For instance, ambient lighting gives illumination to a room in a particular and uniform manner. Accent lighting focuses on the room’s accessories, like antiques, pictures etc. Finally, a led floodlight could give the house a wide-angle illumination, and one can use them in damp areas like the kitchen, patio, or home office.
Briefly, play around with the lighting to detect the one that will give your home a unique tone.
Painting is the first action in interior decoration, and it has a magical influence on the new home.
Get the right paint and colors for the task. Be creative with colors as long as they can blend to give the rooms a satisfying look that will amaze visitors. Remember that the colors you will select will determine the colors of the furniture fabrics and curtains.
To make a good choice, test the colors you like on various shades first.
Most of the time, people don't pay too much attention to the ceiling. However, one can customize this part of the home to add aesthetics to the new abode.
A splash with thick navy blue or elaborate paisley design can be the trick. Finally, even things out by complementing the ceiling and ground designs.
What’s a home without beautiful chairs? More than just sitting, one can use chairs to decorate a new home. You may purchase chairs of different bright and cool colors to add aesthetic to the new apartment.
In addition, placing one or two small-sized beautiful chairs close to the entrance door will awe visitors.
Elements like arts, pictures, plants, shine, flowers, and the likes are necessary to add class to your new home. They can't be too many, and they can't be too few. The important thing is to get the ones that will complement your style and place them in the right places.
Most elements will make dressing a home easy while they beautify it. Plants, for instance, will complement any style one chooses, especially if they are large.
Don’t hesitate to ask for help from a friend or family member if you have one that’s good at decoration. Avoid getting yourself stressed out in the name of getting your new home fixed.
