Whether you’re starting from scratch or freshening up your
home, picking out furniture is normally a long and argument filled process. It
can be difficult to know where to start. So, if you’re suffering through this situation,
here are some tips on how to make decorating your rooms a little bit easier:
Get to know your home
Before you start picking out furniture and decorating your
home there are a few things that you will need to know. Firstly, the dimensions
of the room you’re furnishing are an absolute necessity while picking out what
to fill it with. It doesn’t matter how perfect the furniture you’ve picked out
is if you can’t fit it into the room. So, draw up a floor plan that you can
refer to while you’re shopping. Include on it all of the important
measurements, including the general room size, the door and window sizes, and
the size of any immovable features. This way you will be able to see for
yourself how everything is going to fit together. Just make sure to bring a
tape measure with you when you go furniture shopping.
Find a colour palette
There are lots of different methods of deciding on a colour
palette. If you have some furnishings you want to put in the room already, use
them to inspire your colour palette. If you’re working with a completely blank
canvas and you have absolutely nothing to fill your rooms with, start off with
a neutral colour. Then, when you go shopping, pick out one item that you love
the look of. It could be a pillow, a rug, a lamp, a piece of art etc. Then, use
that item to inspire the rest of your palette. Use your chosen colours for
accent pieces rather than decorate your entire room with them. Putting your
colours on neutral walls and furniture will highlight them and make them stand
out more. Otherwise, you might want to do the opposite and keep the colours on
the wall while the furniture and accessories remain neutral. Just make sure you
chose a palette that you will love long term rather than a colour that’s
momentarily in fashion.
Don’t forget to
When you’re starting from scratch you might find it
difficult to see beyond getting the main features of your room together. After
you’ve got the walls and furniture sorted you might feel a bit overwhelmed when
it comes to adding the finishing touches. The problem with decorating is that
you need to think about it either before or while you’re picking out furniture.
This is because you need to think about where these things will go, where the
focal point in the room is, what kind of decoration would go with the rest of
the room and how much negative space you want. If you’ve found yourself stuck
for ideas and a little bit helpless, contemporary vases are
always s great decoration. They’re neutral, they have interesting designs and
you can coordinate the contents of the vase with the rest of the room. You can
choose real or fake flowers that match your palette, which is an easy and
effective way of adding life to a room with making it look cluttered.
