Whether you are wanting to redo your kitchen or bathroom, or the entire house, you will find a myriad of home decorating ideas online as well as in decor magazines. The only thing required from you is some creativity, a lot of enthusiasm and patience.
Start doing your kitchen first. The reason for this is simply, you need to get it done so that it won’t interfere with cooking meals that much. The quicker it’s over and done with, the better the family will take all the other redecorating hold ups.
So, get the neighbors sorted out by telling them that there will be some noise and contractors in and out, get your pets sorted as well – best to put them in a kennel for a while, and let’s start decorating.
Decorating from scratch, that is a new home, is relatively easy and just by browsing on the internet you will get many ideas for decor, color schemes and price ranges. Or if you are redoing your home then of course it will take some more time to get the old out and discarded, to make way for the new. Kitchens are important in that you need your cabinets fitted with a wood that can be matched with wall tiles and flooring. Blend in the colors to create uniformity and space.
Bathrooms should always be a place to escape to when you have had a long and tiring day. Therefore keep them crisp and uncluttered if possible. A light tile on the wall and floor is advisable to set the tone of the room. Use splashes of bold colors like reds, navy blues and crimson to give you a feeling of pamper as you soak in a hot luxurious bath. Your mirrors should also be magnificent art pieces which will draw the person into mystery and mystic, surrounded by soft candle light and beautiful music.
Everyone will agree that the lounge and dinning room should be uniformly decorated to give a sense of open space. Your choice in wood can be duplicated in both rooms for the sofas and dinning room set. Upholstery can be the same with elegant lines or soft paisley patterns setting the tone for many hours of quality time being spent with friends and family. Again keep your colors neutral so that you can play with bold splashes of color strategically placed around spaces.
If you are one for opulence without having to break the bank, then create it by covering your windows with drapes that are made from heavy material. They hang magnificently especially if draped from the ceiling completely down to the floor. Find antique looking tie backs and presto you have opulence. To compliment the window, install a slim venetian blind either in gold or silver and see how this transforms your rooms into places of grandeur.
Some like it, others don’t – painting our home is always a messy affair. But if you have experts to do it for you, then you won’t have much to worry about, other than the color of paint to use. In order to save money, you should decide on a color which can be used, in every room, matching with all your furniture and color schemes. A tan, camel, egg shell or beige is always wise to use, as these will just about go with any other home decorating ideas you will get in the future.
