Decorating a new house almost feels like painting a brand new picture on a fresh canvas. It’s sort of like a second chance for you to create the home interiors of your dreams! But you know what the best part is? It doesn’t take lavish, expensive ideas to create beautiful home interiors; even the smallest details can enhance their overall appearance in a big way!
For many of you, using old furniture, lamps, art pieces and other decorative items from your previous home may have you thinking that there isn’t much you can do to change up your new interiors; however, there is always room to incorporate new, visually appealing ideas! If you’re overwhelmed with the sheer amount of possibilities in interior home décor, let us help you narrow your options down to six, simple ideas that will make your new home interiors pop! Read on.
A Fresh Focal Point, Please!
If your previous home had a focal point in the form of a large piece of artwork or perhaps, a chandelier, surely you and your family have grown tired of looking at it! So, why not switch things up and create a more unique focal point that will leave guests in awe? For this, consider adding a large accent mirror to your living room with a decorative frame that matches the rest of your interiors. Mirrors are a great way to create the illusion of more space while also serving their true purpose – allowing you to grab a quick look at your hair when there are guests over!
New Pictures, New Picture Frames!
You can never have enough family pictures on display in your home. Particularly in this day and age, we take so many high resolution pictures of loved ones on our cell phones that are more worthy of being framed as opposed to looked at on a screen! So, while your home should always have a place for old, treasured photographs to be displayed, let this be an opportunity for you to print out current family photos and buy some new, decorative frames to put them in! You could even dedicate one wall solely to picture frames and make this ‘wall of memories’ the focal point of the room.
Showcase Glassware Like Never Before!
When it comes to interior decorating, you can’t go wrong with glassware and good lighting! Best of all, you don’t need fancy glasses or expensive figurines because glass in itself looks beautiful with clever lighting and a nice backdrop. For this, a showcase cabinet or glass shelving is perfect to display your glassware with lights focused on it at just the right angles (either at the top facing downward or at the top/bottom corners of either sides). A painted wall or backdrop with a bold colour choice will perfectly complete this exquisite display!
Bring in a Little Nature
The undeniable beauty of house plants, flowers and long branches in a vase put nature-inspired interiors in a league of their own! It is by far the simplest, yet one of the most impactful ways to decorate home interiors. For those of you who are into gardening of grow plants in pots outside, bring some of your outdoors inside and keep your home interiors looking fresh all the time! Of course, if you don’t have the time or means to care for real plants, you could always purchase fake flowers and plants that look as good as the real thing!
Make Bold Statements with Upholstery
Make a bold statement with upholstery that is eye-catching and yet, still complements your wall colours. The great thing about textiles is that the various colours, shades, patterns and textures allow you to create any type of ambiance you desire! Bear in mind, upholstery accounts for a large part of a room which can also double as decoration if chosen appropriately. So, whether you choose a splash of colour or warm, subtle tones, allow your upholstery to stand out rather than blend in with the colour of your walls.
Tie the Room Together with Accent Rugs
As you go about decorating your new home, you will stop and realise that something is missing; that one thing that ties the entire room together. Well, chances are that that something could be a beautiful accent rug! The key here is to choose one that matches your upholstery with shades of your wall colours in it. What’s more, if you really put in the time and effort, you can find a specific style of rug that complements the ambiance you’ve set for the room!
Remember, this is your home to decorate so don’t be afraid to get creative and let your personality shine through your new interiors!
