Everybody likes to feel comfortable while in their home, and one of the best ways to achieve something like this is by decorating and organizing the way you want things to be. The best opportunity to this is upon moving into a new home, one that doesn’t have anything inside, so you can start fresh and make your ideas come to life.
Some people really care about aesthetics, but even those that don’t will find a lot of joy in decorating their place, which is exactly what we’re going to help you with in today’s article.
If you’ve recently moved into a new home, or you’re planning to do it in the future and you want to learn more, feel free to keep on reading until the end. Without further ado, let’s take a look at this room-by-room guide.
1. The bedroom
We’re going to start with one of the rooms that seem to be the favorite for a lot of people. This is where we rest, relax after a tough day at work and recharge our batteries for the upcoming day. Our bedrooms are like a shelter, and we all know that shelters need to provide that sense of being secure and comfortable at any time.
Our tip for your bedroom is to try and keep the gadgets and devices in it to the bare minimum, although we know that you all love hanging a huge flatscreen TV on the wall and watching some Netflix before going to bed.
The reason why we’re saying this is because it’s scientifically confirmed that the less technology you have in the place where you sleep, the more rested and energized you’ll wake up in the morning. Instead of going all “techy”, you can decorate with some relaxing items such as lava lamps, lights that simulate the stars on your celling and colors that relax the human eye, such as blue and green.
For some people this is the most important room in their entire home, and we can quite easily see why. It’s the place where we cook our healthy meals and invite guests for a talk after having a lunch together. Not many pay enough attention when it comes to decorating this part of their house, but it’s definitely a place that you can invest in quite a lot, and make it look amazing.
Our tip for your kitchen is to make it open and connected with your living room, because this is what a lot of designers are doing lately. This allows you to communicate with the person that’s inside and cooking, while also making your entire place look a lot broader and open, giving you that sense that you can breathe more easily. Don’t worry about the smell of cooked food because there are tons of different devices that can take care of the smoke, and they are not expensive at all.
3. Living area
The place of all gatherings and probably the room that gets the most attention when people are decorating and organizing. For some reason, the living room is known to be “the king” of all others, and it’s probably because it’s largest by size and has the most options when it comes to adding items and furniture.
This is also the place where we all have a TV, so if you are recently moving into a new place in Glasgow that doesn’t have an aerial set-up, feel free to check this.
There are so many things that you can do in this place, so many that we don’t know what to begin with. Aquariums, fireplaces, minimalism or a Feng-Shui design? Feel free to go crazy with it.
Our suggestion is to try and keep things clean and simple, because this is what most modern designers are doing nowadays. If you want that futuristic look, you definitely should try to have as few items in there as possible, while focusing on the most important ones to be high-end and good-looking.
4. Your bathroom
Another “underdog” when it comes to designing and organizing, but this one seems to get a lot of popularity lately because a lot of people suddenly started gaining awareness about the importance of investing in your “safe place” also known as the bathroom.
You can do a lot of things in here, but you’ll have to decide whether you want to keep it minimal and as “spacey” as possible, or you want to have all the required things in there and not really care about room.
The biggest decision that you can do here is to decide whether you want a bathtub or a regular shower, because it’s what takes the most space. Based on this, you can complete the rest of your design. The most influential thing when it comes to looks here is the color of your tiles, and your ability to combine them with the rest of the elements. Try to have two or three colors at maximum, and make it stylish.
5. The balcony – Backyard
Last but not least, the place that we all use to drink our morning coffee and enjoy the beautiful look of the outsides while spending time with our family and friends. There’s nothing much that you can do here, but you can really let nature take care of the beauty aspect by adding all sorts of flowers, trees and other green decorations.
If you have a certain style that you keep for the entire house, maybe you can try to match the elements to be in the same color, but the rest will be up to you.
For those of you who live in a house, this balcony will probably be replaced by a moderately larger backyard, and with so much space you can do anything that comes up on your mind. A swimming pool, a tree swing or a place for barbeque and other sorts of gatherings are all possible options.
Something that we noticed a lot of people do lately is adding fountains and rocks that look exotic, because it seems to be modern and used in many expensive villas, so try that if you find it appealing. Remember that it might be a costly investment.
