Home decoration is not only easy but also very interesting. However, it is often a challenging task as we don’t even know how and where to begin. But it should be remembered that home décor is not only for professional interior designers. You just need to follow some fundamental advices and tips to transform your place and even impress your family and friends.
1. Select a focal point:
When you enter a living room, bedroom, or any other well decorated room, you will always find a focal point. It is the main feature that stands out from the rest of the other objects. Therefore, it is a good idea to select an object or group of objects that draw attention before decorating any room.
For instance, in a medium sized living room, an oriental rug can be a good option. Features that already present in your home can also be focal points, such as a fireplace or a full-sized window facing the lawn.
2. Create adequate storage space:
Unorganized and untidy rooms look boring and uneasy to eyes. You need to be creative about using storage space in order to fix this quickly. A great place to hide magazines, remote controls, DVDs, and other small things is small cabinets placing beside a sofa. Throw fabrics over an étagère to hide tools or stationery. You can also fit nicely designed boxes in your shelves or wardrobes to create more space or just to make it look appealing.
3. The right paint color:
The paint color of the walls or an entire bedroom greatly affects your mood for a long time. Therefore, select the color for your rooms carefully. Consider working on your home office with blank walls. You won’t likely to spend much time there, but selecting the right color can be real fun. Consider about places you like the most and feel relaxed around. Think that which color make you feel comfortable around. It‘s all about you and your feelings. Think deeply and select accordingly.
4. Think before buying furniture:
Furniture surely takes a lot of space in your home. Selecting the wrong furniture can not only be costly but also can take unnecessary space around.

For example, it looks quite awkward to have a modern looking cabinet along with a vintage looking wood table.
One useful tip is to make a detailed budget so that when you go for buying your furniture, you don’t spend all of your money on just one piece.
5. Small things make a big difference:
Make a room look fresh just by changing a lighting features, pillows, photographs, artworks, and flowers. This is particularly important if you want to give your house a fresh look every new season. Color changes of fabrics and flowers can play an important part in decorating home.
