Interior decorating as to do with the aesthetics of a space that is, what kind of furniture sets to use, lighting, accessories, etc. Basically, it refers to the decorating and furnishing of interior spaces in homes, offices, schools and public places. It usually deals with all aspects of lighting, colour, texture, paint, furniture, window treatment and accessories. When it comes to home decorating, a good way to get started is to check out pictures from magazines and on the internet. After you have put together some images that inspire you, compare them and get out the common denominators in terms of colour, furniture style, pattern and density of objects. Moreover, make sure to keep in mind the architecture of the space you are living in and the possible limitations. Here are steps to take when starting out with decorating your home or space:
Create a budget: You will have to put aside how much you wish to spend for this project. If your budget is not enough to touch on all the rooms in your home, you can work by priority. This means that you work on the room where you spend most of your time and the room where you are likely to receive visitors more. That way, you can plan in batches and complete the decorating of your entire house without creating a hole in your bank account.
Sketch out a floor plan: As tedious as this may sound, it is however a great way to plan effectively for your decorating project. This simply means that you will have to draw out on paper, what you want the exact look of the room you are working on to be. This also means drawing out furniture positioning, accessories positioning, etc, on paper.
Select your colour pattern: You can select a colour theme for your entire space blending into the furnishings and the accessories. The idea of the colour them can come from whatever source you choose. The tip here is to make the colours you choose complement themselves to create something beautiful. One easy way to do this is by choosing neutral colours for long term pieces such as the sofa, dining sets, big appliances, etc. You can then be bolder when it comes to choosing the colours of throw pillows, lamps, artworks, etc. This way, you can change the colour theme of the home at any time without having to spend so much money doing that.
Invest in good furniture pieces: Pieces of furniture are for the long term, usually because they cost a lot of money. Moreover, a good furniture set goes a long way in adding its own beauty to the entire décor of the room. Make sure to invest in long-lasting, high quality furniture set.
Measure your space: Make sure to measure your rooms especially if you plan to buy new things such as furniture sets, home appliances, etc. This would save you from the disaster of buying things which are too small for your space or things which are too big and cannot fit into the space assigned for them.
