When it comes to interior design, it can be like trying to capture your very soul in some kind of house-shaped container. Home is where the heart is, as they say, and that means your house is an extension of your very being, so you want it to be a perfect reflection of that fact and of your personality and inner workings. The problem comes from the nearly limitless pool of options when designing your home. With so many potential combinations, it can be hard to decide what’s right for you and your home. This indecision can derail a project something awful, so prepare accordingly and come up with a plan prior to starting renovations. If you need some help getting starting, you’ll need to first narrow your focus. Here are few suggestions to help you get started.
First and foremost, consider the flow of your space. Take a look at your living room furniture, and then imagine a series of pathways going around and in between the furniture, to the front door and into the next room. You want to make these pathways as short and efficient as possible for ease of traversal, essentially. Imagine that you’ve just come in the door. You kick off your Famous Footwear shoes, walk past the sofa and to the kitchen. There, you grab a snack, then go back into the living room, and plop down onto the couch to watch some TV. You’ve heard Riverdale is good, but it’s such an oddball concept that it can’t possibly work, right? Now, your goal is to make that pathway, and all of the others in your home as short and efficient as possible. You want pathways connecting each room and to all the areas of interest in a given room, as well.
Another great renovation idea is to decorate around a central theme. One such theme idea is that of the four seasons. Obviously, this only works with only four rooms or four rooms of the same type and adjacent to one another, but it’s a cool concept nonetheless. The first room would be a vibrant green, or perhaps baby blue, to signify Spring. The next room in line would have yellow walls to evoke the warmth of Summer. Then, the Fall themed room would be orange. The final Winter room would have white walls. Then, you would simply add thematically appropriate decor to each room.
