How To Decorate Your Rooms For A Connected, Seamless Look
The phrase, “a home is only as good as you decorate” has always been a point to reflect upon by everyone who moves into a house for the first time. But this doesn’t mean that home décor is for first time homeownership. You can revamp your house’s appearance whenever you see fit.
When decorating your rooms, you should always consider your rooms as a unit and not as separate entities. The idea is that the pleasantness of one room should be in sync with the other – at least so that you don’t end up with what can only be described as a disjointed house. Here are some of the things to do in home décor to create a cohesive look.
Get your colour palette right
Colour is one of the simplest ways to make your rooms connect in style and appearance. For most people, using a single-colour scheme is sufficient for their interior design colour needs. One of the reasons why single-coloured walls are becoming popular is because most people prefer a minimalistic lifestyle, and they want to keep everything simple.
Sometimes one colour is not enough, and you may have to accentuate with other complementary shades. When selecting colours, it should not just be limited to the paint. Curtains, pillowcases, as well as your furniture coverings, should be complementary to each other. Using various shades and tones of your preferred colour can add to the beauty and taste of your artistic work.
Work on your styling
Style is also a great way to make your rooms ‘flow’ in sync. Once you decide on a style that you love, you can use it generously throughout the rooms in your living space. But the idea is not to replicate. A little creativity in using different materials and colours will go a significantly improve the outcomes you are looking to achieve.
Sometimes, styling becomes a daunting task, especially when you want to incorporate several styles in a small living space. When you are in such a situation, you can work with an interior designer, or do it yourself by using a little bit of the elements you want in every room.
Match the flooring
Living in limited square footage means every inch matter, but it also means getting your flooring right so your home appears neat and modern. For smaller houses, it is preferable to be consistent with the flooring and make it the same for every room. With that said, you can make the occasional exception to this rule and use different flooring materials for the kitchen and the bathroom, for instance, to give your house a unique design.
