A house where you feel “at home” is a house designed properly, say experts in architecture and design. Thus, to get the perfect setting, like in magazines, we gathered some tips from decorators, which will help in arranging the house.
RULE 1: INVEST IN COLOR
The walls are very important. Keep white for the ceiling. Dare to use color: black, red, gray, green. You can use wallpaper or paint, with the condition that it be of high quality and the colors full, dense. If you don’t have a large area, mix colors – a wall in a strong color and the rest in tones of cream, butter etc.
RULE 2: DIVIDE THE AREAS CORRECTLY
Even if you find that you don’t need a coffee table, it is very important when you have guests. Therefore, make sure you arrange a relaxation area, a discussion area, a hobby area etc. There is room for all, if you look at the big picture and take into account the conversion of space.
RULE 3: A CORNER FOR YOU
Whether it is a dressing table, a chair for reading or for what relaxes you after a long day, you need a place of your own. For example, you can arrange a place for reading, preferably in the bedroom. Why in the bedroom? Because it is your personal space, where you can withdraw even when you have guests.
RULE 4: INVEST IN PIECES DE RESISTANCE
Even if you have a low budget for decorating, save for a piece that enjoys you whenever you see it. It can be a very good mattress for the bed, a designer lamp, an extremely comfortable armchair, some paintings or whatever you want. You will see how much it changes the atmosphere in the house. And if you don’t have a budget for such an investment, here is an example of a special arrangement, at the window, that will attract attention.
RULE 5: 5-STAR BATHROOM
Yes, exactly, a 5-star bathroom, just like in a hotel. The bathroom is a sanctuary, so it deserves to orient your attention to it. The days when you dressed it all in ceramic tiles are gone and you were thinking about bathroom just in terms of the usefulness of this room. Now you can opt for an unmasked bathtub, with copper look. Or painted in a cheerful color. Bathroom cabinets made of wood or resistant and showy materials, a special wallpaper instead of the ordinary tiles, hidden toilet bowl etc. Also, you can decorate: with candles, picture frames, art deco posters, whatever you like!
