We know that this can seem like a daunting task, but once you have the right kind of ideas in your head, your home is going to look great in no time.
Know What You Want
The first step that you need to take is to know what you want. Have some sort of idea in your mind of how you want your finished home to look, and then plan your designs around this. Without this, you are just going to be shooting in the dark, and while this can work quite well for some people, you might not want to take this risk. If you don’t already have an idea, go online and find some inspiration. You can see lots of other peoples home designs, and ideas from interior designers on how to make your home look wonderful.
If you live with your family, why not consult them? Making it into a family project is going to be a lot of fun for everyone, and it means that all members of the family are going to like the end result. Choosing a home design might sound like a boring task for kids, but there are always ways to make it more exciting to get them to engage with the project.
Your Own Style
While it is always going to be a good idea to take inspiration from other people’s style, make sure that your home stays your own. For example, there is no point in putting something in your home that you do not like, or that doesn’t look like it belongs there. The only items that should be coming through your front door are ones that you love. While your style might be a little different from what you see online, this doesn’t matter because you and your family are the only ones who are going to be living there. As such, you need to go crazy and stay true to what you like.
Or, if it is something that other family members like, incorporate this into your design too. Everyone should have a say in the space that they live in, and it is always going to be interesting to see how different designs can come together to create a new one. You never know, you might end up with something truly incredible if you combine the design ideas of the entire family.
What you can also do if you are very set in your ways when it comes to certain areas of your home, is make sure that your kids know they can have their room however they want it. If they want paintings of cars on the ceiling, then this is what they are going to have. The same goes for colors and so on! It is a great way to bring out your child’s creative side, without having Disney and astronauts painted across all the walls in your house.
Choosing a color is going to be important to how your home looks when it is finished. This is where you need to have an idea of what you want to the end result to look like. For example, you might have seen some furniture that you want to purchase, and if this is the case then you are going to need to choose a color that matches said furniture. Otherwise, your living room is going to look like someone has just thrown together things that don’t belong. This is not what you want, so you need to think carefully when you are choosing your paint.
Are you looking for something that goes with everything so that if you decide to change things up in the future you don’t have to paint again? If so, you want to be looking at a white or magnolia kind of color. This matches all kinds of colors and patterns that could be put into a room, and also makes the size of the room seem a little larger. If you are not bothered about changing the paint when you next redesign, then you can go for any color you want. Whether this is a purple, a brown or anything else that your heart desires! Just ensure that you are thinking ahead like we said above!
Have you thought about furniture yet? You might have already been to pick out some of the new pieces that are going to be decorating your living room. If you have, then you are already one step further along than everyone else and you are going to have a better idea of what each room is going to look like when they are finished. For example, when looking at the living room, you might want to consider adding some leather sofas and perhaps a new coffee table. Leather is very in right now, and will make your living room look wonderful! You need a coffee table in your room too, otherwise you are not going to have anything to put plates or cups on when you have guests over.
You also need to be thinking about furniture for your bedrooms and kitchen as well. While the living room is the room that guests will be in when you have them over, updating your entire home is still going to be important. Like we said above, why not let your kids choose what they want in their room? Take them shopping and show them a wide variety of beds that they can choose from, and other things such as lamps, lampshades and chest of drawers. It doesn’t all have to cost you a fortune, but your kids will be happy knowing they had the choice, and you are going to have a home that looks awesome, and that everyone is happy in.
Do you have a lot of ornaments in your home? If you don’t, you might want to consider putting some up. Some people don’t like having their ornaments out for fear that they are going to get broken, but they aren’t going to do you any good sat in a box! As such, you should be placing your ornaments in high up places where they cannot get damaged, but where they can also be appreciated. This is going to make any room look wonderful, and people are going to be able to appreciate the beauty of your fine crystal and other ornaments.
Make It Minimal
Minimal is the design style that is in right now. More and more people are opting for a minimalist home design. If you don’t already know what this is, it means that there is not a lot of items around your home. For example, you would only see enough chairs out in a room for each family member to sit on and perhaps one or two guests. Other than this, there would be no furniture around the room apart from a table. Only the necessary items stay on display, everything else has to be put away.
This is the new trend because it makes rooms like bigger. People enjoy having big rooms, and this is what the design option provides. More room to walk around in, and also if you have less stuff in a room, it is likely to feel a lot less cramped.
A Cool Rug
Have you thought about adding a cool rug to all the rooms in your home? You might already have carpet, and if this is the case then this is not going to be a good option for you necessarily, but if you are someone who has wooden floors, then this is certainly something to consider. Purchasing a cool rug to really pull the room together is going to be a good idea. It will connect all the elements of your room, and make everything look fantastic! You can find a variety of rugs at your home depot store, or you can go online a check out a range of options there. Don’t just settle for the first one that you like though, ensure that you are completing a good amount of research into the right color and pattern for you.
