One of the hardest parts of building or remodeling a house is deciding on the best ways to decorate. With an endless palette of color schemes and furniture designs, it can be difficult to decide on what you want. So, here is a short list of 8 tips for decorating your next room.
LED Lighting Is A Must
Pretty much all newer construction or remodels will use LED lights to brighten the rooms. Not only are they more energy efficient, they produce clearer light and also have a much longer lifespan than traditional light bulbs.
Consider A Ceiling Fan
To some, ceiling fans may seem a bit dated or even tacky. But, there are many designs available that will look great hanging in the center of a room. Fans are even much quieter and more reliable than they were previously, also being made from better higher quality materials.
Make Sure You Have Enough Outlets
Something a lot of people will overlook during designing a room is the number and location of power outlets in the room. Without a sufficient number of outlets, you could easily find yourself having extension cords pulled across a room, and that’s definitely not going to fit in with the style of the room.
Furniture Choice Is Key
You have to take the size and layout of the room into consideration when deciding which furniture to put in it. If the room simply isn’t big enough, that beautiful California King size sleigh bed just isn’t an option, no matter how much you like it. You want to make sure that there is still room to move around once all the furniture is in place. What good are dresser drawers if they’re too close to the bed to open?
Wall Color Matters
One of the most instantly noticeable things about any room is the color on the walls and ceiling. You want to use lighter, warmer colors in a bedroom as these colors can help facilitate relaxation and rest in the room where you do the majority of your resting. Ceiling color makes a difference as well, given that the ceiling is what you look up at when you lie in bed at night, so you want to make sure it is also done in a color that will help ease you into a restful state easier.
Don’t Leave The Walls Bare
Staring at a blank wall is definitely not the most inviting sight. Simply using artwork in a matching color scheme to the room or pictures of your family can give a room a much more welcoming and homely feel.
Molding And Trim
When designing your room, consider using different types and sizes and trim and molding to give the room the exact look you want. Some people even use molding around the ceiling with lights laid inside to give a nice glowing light that covers the entire room without being seen when they are off at all.
Make It Your Own
The most important thing to consider when decorating your room is making sure it is a room that you can see yourself using and spending time in. While it is nice when other people compliment your rooms, it is more important that you like them, as you are the one living in them
