What’s Your Decorating Personality?

By adminbret • April 6th, 2011

We all have different decorating personalities. Some change their furniture frequently and match home decor to fashion trends and others buy traditional furniture, keep it forever, and pass it down to their children. Here are some tips to help you make difficult home decor decisions.

1. Determine the function of each room. Which rooms serve a particular need or function. How much wear and tear will each room get from kids, pets, or frequent use.

2. Take stock of your current furniture. If you have family heirlooms or antiques you have the option of reupholstering or refinishing them to restore their appearance. If you are living with furniture that you dislike, or is past it’s prime and not worth repairing, you can always sell them or donate them to charitable organizations.

3. Determine your personal style. Look for inspiration from magazines, books, or stores that can give you insight to the types of decor that best suit your style and functionality that make you feel at home.

4. Identify a focal point in each room, such as a fireplace, seating arrangement, or a window with a view. Keep in mind natural traffic patterns through and between rooms and arrangeĀ  your furniture accordingly for ease of movement.

5. Define spaces in open floor plans. You can acheive this with furniture arrangement, area rugs, folding screens or even a fountain or sculpture.

6. Choose paint colors last. Take samples of fabrics, wood tones and flooring when choosing paint colors. Bring chips home to view them in the room at different times during the day.
