- The Furniture Experiment
Talking of home decor you can’t miss out on the furniture. Furniture and furnishing elements are the heart of home decor. Well, if you have been following the traditional style furniture with a rustic look and raw finish then it’s time to go the other way. Yes, you read it right.
Trying out a new style of furniture can be quite a great thing. With a variety of options in the face of western style wooden furnishing available, you must not miss them. To be on the safer side and to get your wish fulfilled (if you are too addicted to your style) you can get a mix of your style and some new style of furnishing elements.
- Take Note Of Dimensions: Noting The Spaces
A common but less talked about the problem with home décor is the ignorance towards managing spaces properly. You must know the dimensions of your house (say the drawing room) and more so, the dimension of the element you want to bring in as a part of decor.
Many a time we see that certain spaces in the house are too crowded with elements while others have quiet space. This is where space management comes in. Proper space management allows you the freedom to get in more with creating a crowding effect.
- 60-30-10 Rule
The 60-30-10 rule is a very important rule in the context of the color scheme of your house. The rule basically calls for the selection of a three-color scheme for your home décor. The dominant of the three must take 60% of the area while the second fiddle must occupy around 30% area. The third supporting color must take in 10% of the area.
The 60 part of it comes from the coloring on walls. The 30 comes from the furnishing elements. The rest 10 is made by accessories like cushions, upholstery, etc.
- Focus On lighting
Lighting must be chosen keeping in mind its effect on your body. This becomes important when you have kids and elderly people at home. Don’t go too bright as it can be painful for your eyes. The too dim approach is also not a good idea.
Opt for a middle path and have mid of bright and dim what we called “properly lit” type approach. Blue and pale yellow shadow lighting can be a great choice to opt for in this regards.
- Comfortable Seating And Cushioning
This is one most important thing that you must take care of. After all the effort you are putting in is to get that comfort. Make sure you pick cushioning, upholstery and beddings that not only match the style of the décor theme but is equally comforting for the user. Don’t go for too much show-off and less comfort.
- Game Of Numbers
Last but surely not least you must get the numbers right. No, we are not talking about dimensions here. By numbers what we mean is a grouping of elements. Pick up a number symmetry say an odd number symmetry or even number symmetry. Arrange elements as per this scheme. Say for example in odd symmetry you style your spaces with elements placed in a group of an odd number.
This kind of symmetry would surely give a nice and unique effect to the overall aspect. So, decide about it as per your choice and then go along.
