When it comes to home decor, there are a number of factors to consider. Will you be decorating just the one room or several? Do you have a key vision in mind? What kind of budget do you have to work with?
Certain homeowners have a clear picture of what it is they wish to create and also, how to go about it. Others become overwhelmed and find it difficult to know where to start. If you’re unsure of where to begin, it’s important to draw up a plan. Make a list of the rooms that require sprucing up and work your way through them one by one.
The bedroom is seen as one of the most important rooms in the house, it’s where we sleep, where we choose to relax and unwind after a hard day in the office and also, where we get dressed. With this in mind it’s vital to create an ambience that tailors itself to your specific needs.
Sleep is extremely important and it’s a proven fact that a good night’s sleep is beneficial to our health. It’s therefore wise to begin the re-decorating process with an evaluation of your existing bed.
If you find you have trouble sleeping and often suffer from back pain, it may be time to buy into a new mattress, such as a style from the Sainsbury’s pocket sprung mattress range.
Another important factor to consider when addressing the bedroom is lighting. Steer clear of harsh, bright lighting and opt for softer hues instead. A main dimmable source is always a good option as it can be toned down when you choose to relax and brightened a little when getting dressed.
Another important room in the household is the bathroom and in order to keep this area as hygienic as possible, it’s wise to invest in tiling as opposed to carpet. Similar tiling place on both the floors and walls can also create the illusion of a spa wetroom and make household cleaning considerably easier.
Some say the kitchen is the hub of the home. It’s where many choose to congregate after school, nursery and work and is often where we choose to dine. Lighting therefore plays an extremely important part.
Spotlights that can be dimmed and brightened are a good option, as is under cabinet lighting. Simply alter their brightness as and when required.
Altering the look and feel of your home doesn’t have to be an impossible chore and if you’re willing to spend a little time on each area, you’ll easily be able to create a beautiful yet practical living space.
