No matter if you live in an apartment, a condo, or a house – decorating your home with the right furniture can be a fun experience. Here are some tips to help you make the right selection for your humble abode.
Use the colors of the walls as a guide. If you plan on painting them a different color, do this first. If not, have an idea of what you wish each room to look like. You’ll want furniture that goes well with the walls, as this will make decorating quite an easy process. Don’t be afraid to mix different hues and patterns.
Determine what you need. Is it a sofa? A recliner? What about a coffee table for entertaining? Think about what each room needs and keep in mind how much space you have to work with. Buy the essentials first; if there’s space afterward, and then add extra pieces to it.
Select a style. Perhaps you prefer classical more than contemporary; no matter the style, make sure you purchase pieces that are durable and can withstand possible wear and tear over time.
- Don’t forget the lights. Skylights, lamps, string lights… There are so many different types of light sources to choose from. Determine how much light you would like in the room (which should be based on how often the room is used and what it is used for) and the type of atmosphere you would like to create, and then select the style that looks best in the space.
