All the tips and tricks of home decor that you need to know
If you are someone who just bought a home or is planning to decorate their
home from scratch, you have come to the right page. We are here to help you with
your home decor. Often people assign the work of home decor to the
best interior designers, and while they do a great job being
professionals, in this time and age of DIY, you should definitely attempt to
decorate your home by yourself.
While home decor can be a tricky and overwhelming task, we have broken it down
in pieces for your understanding. First thing first, why does one consider
decorating their homes? Basically there are two purposes for home decor, first
is to improve the look of your apartment or office and the second reason is to
maximize space. If you're reading this article, you must fall in either of these
categories and so let's break the code with simple home decor ideas.
A) Home decor to improve the look of your space
1) Paint it up! : What is the first thing you see when you
enter an apartment? The answer is likely to be walls. Walls make a primary
impact on the visitor's mind and therefore it is important to emphasize the pain
you use. Paints are extremely inexpensive, and it makes a vivid impression.
Whether you need to tone down a colour or add a bold colour to liven up your
space, paint on your walls are a great way to change the overall feel of a room.
2) Moulding the walls: Gone are the days when people used to
have plain coloured walls, give your home a Victorian style by adding moulding
to the baseboard, chair rail or ceiling. It looks really elegant yet not
3) Hang on by the art: Be it a painting by a famous painter, a
family photograph or a signature painting you made, framed works can make a
four-wall apartment feel like a home. When doing the wall paintings, go by the
'less is more' rule. Remember you don't have to hang artwork on every empty
4) Be playful: Trick the visitorís eyes with some sneaky smart
mirror placements. Mirror illusions can make the eye believe that the place is
bigger than it actually is. It makes the room look spacious.
5) Invest in statement pieces: Home decor is all about
statements. A centrepiece, chandelier, or a stand-out rug has the capacity to
upgrade a home's sense of luxury.
B) Home decor to maximize space: We all have faced the troubles
of fitting it all in even though there is not enough space for all the things.
If you be smart while buying your furniture and home decor, you won't face this
1) Use the vertical space: While people tend to do well with
the horizontal space, they often overlook all the vertical space that is being
wasted. A great way to bring the vertical space in use is to stack up to the
furniture. Instead of buying a cabinet that occupies a huge carpet area, buy a
tall, slim cabinet hence using the vertical space.
2) Use storage beds and sofas: These can be a lifesaver for
those who clean their home in the last minute before a party or something
important. Stack up all your clutter inside the sofa or bed boxes, and no one
will ever know! This can be brilliantly used to store lightweight things like
mattresses and pillows as well.
