We have 4 home decorating how-to’s to help you begin.

1. Pick a Color

Choosing a main color to focus the room’s accents around can make it easier to match furniture and accents. Sample a few different paint colors on the walls and see how they look during the day and at night.

Once you decide on paint, you can start buying complementary pieces to fill the room.

2. Decide the Layout

Figure out which layout would work best for your space. Make sure to measure the walls and floors so you know what will fit.

Are you going for a modern, contemporary or farmhouse look? The furniture, colors and accent pieces should match the overall design aesthetic of each room.

Consider how you’ll use the space and ask yourself the following questions about layout:

  • How much room do you need?
  • What furniture suits the space?
  • Will you need a couch, bed or table?
  • What function will this room play in the home?

3. Furniture First

The biggest part of home design is often selecting the furniture. There is a wide range of options when it comes to couches, tables, chairs and other décor items, making it easy to customize your space to your desired taste.

Furniture not only serves an aesthetic purpose but its functionality is crucial too. If the room is designed for comfort, the furniture should be warm and welcoming. For instance, a soft fabric sectional with big cozy pillows.

4. Accessories Next

When adding accessories to your home, purchase what you like! Spruce up the walls with your favorite pieces of art or put some plants to the windowsill. Whether you add a throw rug for more color or comfy blankets for the couch, get creative and have fun with decorating your space.
