Our homes are our castles and these days, they have become the place that many of us are spending increasing time in. Our homes are not only a safe place for us to spend our time and store our belongings, but they can also often be an extension of our personalities. How you choose to furnish and decorate your home can say a lot about you as a person. Whether you’ve just moved into a new home or are considering giving your current home a fresh new look, there are tons of different choices to consider when it comes to the route you take for decoration and accessories to get the ambience that you want at home. Here are some of the main things to consider when it comes to giving your home a fresh new look.
The paint colours that you choose are likely to be some of the main things that you’ll consider when giving your home a fresh look. For the main walls, most people prefer to go for neutral colours such as white, off-white, beige, grey, and greiges to create a foundation for the décor that almost everything is going to go with. These colours are ideal choices if you are the type of person who likes to change things up every now and again since they are usually easy to work with and go with a range of features, colour themes, and décor themes in the home.
Adding a feature wall to some rooms in your home can seriously change the look and feel of the area. Feature walls are most commonly found in living rooms and master bedrooms, but you can put one almost anywhere that you like. There are several options to consider when it comes to how you want your feature wall to look. Patterned wallpaper is a popular choice, or you could simply go with a bold paint colour if you prefer. If you have alcoves and a chimney breast in your home, a combination of paint and wallpaper can create great results. Wooden panelling is becoming an increasingly popular choice, using MDF strips to create a panelled appearance in different patterns.
The flooring in your home can make a massive difference to how it looks and feels. There are several options to consider when it comes to choosing flooring. It’s important to consider the look and feel of the room with a certain flooring installed, but you should also consider practicality and maintenance too. Laminate flooring with area rugs is a great choice if you want a low-maintenance option for your living room or dining room, while carpets tend to be more popular choices for bedrooms since they are more comfortable and warming.
Aside from the main furniture items that every home will need, accessories can be used to make the house feel more like a home. There are several things that you can do with accessories and several options to choose from including light fixtures, curtains, rugs, ornaments, bathmats, and towels, and many more. Some people prefer the minimal look with only the necessary accessories in the home, while others like a maximalist appearance, such as interesting picture walls. The rule of three is a good one to stick to when it comes to accessorising your home.
If you have pets, then chances are they are going to be a huge part of how you choose to decorate and furnish your home. You can find items for dogs from SSENSE’s Versace Homewear range, as well as other Versace Décor and Versace Home items for every room. Dog beds from a designer brand are always stylish and it can be fun to decorate your home with Versace while making sure that it is still on-trend. There are various other things that you can do around your home to accommodate your pets while still keeping things stylish. For example, if you have a cat, you can hide their litter box in upcycled furniture that doubles up as a sideboard or shelving.
Finally, the tech that you add to your home isn’t just going to impact the look but also the convenience, ambience, and more. For example, the TV that you choose for your living room can have a big impact on how the entire room looks. Smart devices and appliances can make it easier for you to run your home on a schedule and can make it easier when doing household activities such as shopping for groceries with easy reminders or shopping lists that you can add to throughout the week. Smart lighting is an ideal way to easily change the ambience in any room of your home and can be set to turn on and off at any time you need.
If you want to give your home a new look or transform a home you’ve recently moved into, these are just some of the main things to consider.
