We all want to have the perfect home, but we might not have a clue where to start. Unless you have been blessed with an eye for interior design, you might feel a little out of your depth when decorating your home. For this reason, we’re offering an ultimate guide to creating a beautiful home.
Create a Blank Canvas
Whether you are just moving in or are renovating your existing interior, we recommend creating a blank canvas before you do anything. Paint the walls white and remove furniture to identify exactly how much light and space you have to work with in your home.
Avoid Patterned Wallpaper
What’s the worst thing about following home trends? Next season they won’t be trendy anymore. Don’t follow the crowd and avoid trendy wallpaper or colors as much as possible, or you might be peeling that patterned print down in a year or two.
Instead, we recommend opting for a plain wall. As well as being much cheaper than expensive patterned wallpaper, it’s easier to paint over when you grow tired of the same color. You can also add personality and color to the wall with artwork or posters.
Don’t skimp on your home’s flooring and invest in the most expensive option you can afford. The best flooring will always look good within the home, and it will become more beautiful with age. Yet, low-quality flooring will more than likely not age well, and you could be ripping it up sooner than you think.
A Stylish, Comfortable Sofa
It’s important to invest in a sofa that oozes both comfort and style, as it will create a warm and welcoming home. For instance, consider modern sectional sofas that are designed to seat many people, and are a great way to relax at home to watch TV, read a book or take a nap. Not to mention they are effortlessly stylish and unique.
A Luxury Bath
Many homeowners often skimp on the bathroom when designing their home, but this is a big mistake. Not only can it add value to your property, but it will also improve relaxation. Let’s face it, there’s nothing better than a nice soak in a hot bath, surrounded by beautifully-scented candles after a long, hard day. Investing in a luxurious bath can provide an indulgent experience within the home, which will make you fall a little bit more in love with the property.
Buy Beautiful Bed Linen
Did you know we spend 25% of our lives in bed? That’s why we recommend buying premium bed linen so that you can indulge in a great night’s sleep each night. Try to find cool, crisp cotton that will feel luxurious against your skin, with a print that will bring your interior to life.
Designing a beautiful home doesn’t have to be difficult. You simply need to consider the light and size of each room, avoid following trends, and never skimp on quality for the items you want to stand the test of time.
