Home décor is a fine blend of creativity, colors, and compassionate furniture arrangement. No hard and fast rules exist for decorating homes. Some of the top interior designers follow their intuition to create masterpieces of rooms.
Yet, certain things can help you add the “wow” factor in your home. You need no expensive pieces of furniture or million-dollar paintings to create a million-dollar look for your home. The paradox of million-dollar look is that you actually don’t spend a million dollars for it, yet it looks as if you have.
Key points for home decoration
• Wall colors must complement with your upholstery, rugs, and other items in the room. People usually choose wall paints first. Yet, top designers are of the view that you must first arrange your furniture in the room and then decide upon a color that goes well with everything present in the room.
• Less is more when it comes to furniture. Avoid cluttering all pieces together. A roomy space is inviting.
• Hang paintings at the right height. In high-ceiling rooms, people usually hang artwork at a height. It’s wrong. Hang a piece in a manner that its midline is about 57-60 inches above the floor. This is the eye level. Paintings at the right height relate more to the human being than being merely a painting on the wall.
• Let go of items that don’t fit the décor, no matter if it is your great grandmother’s framed artwork.
Let your home have a personality
Decorating your home is more than just eye appeal. It is about creating a mood…that which complements your style and taste.
Create a focal point in the room…something that catches the eye as soon as you enter. It can be the fireplace or a colorful rug or an interesting sculpture or painting or maybe a beautiful chandelier.
Lighting plays an important role in creating ambience. For example, if it’s your bedroom, you could install some romantic lights. There can be artistic candle stands and stuff. For the study room you could have direct lights, while for the living room, indirect soft lights can create a cozy atmosphere.
Mirrors are significant element of a house. Make sure you fix them at appropriate places to channelize good energy around the house. Big mirrors in a small room can create an illusion of spaciousness. Feng Shui experts advise against fixing mirrors on the wall facing the entrance, as it reflects back positive energy outside.
Hanging crystals, wind chimes, and others not only increase the aesthetic value of your room, but also attract positive energy in the house.
