Feeling tired of your home’s aesthetic? We’ve all been there. When you lived in your own flat, perhaps it was easy to keep things clean and to design the interior of your home with all the things that mean something to you. When you grow up, get a big house, and have a family living in that space with you, however, it becomes much harder to keep everything in tip-top shape around your humble abode. Home life shouldn’t be a chore for you; you should feel relaxed and happy when you step foot into your home and not anxious at the thought of all the things that are wrong with the place. This article should help you understand the key to a superior interior for your home.
Personalise the design.
You need to remember that interior design is about more than a visually-appealing aesthetic. It’s supposed to be a representation of the personal tastes of you and your family. A glitzy, shining interior is all well and good but it can end up feeling a little hollow and lifeless if it’s too devoid of anything that marks the place as your home. Minimalism is still important, of course. You want to cut down on clutter and excess possessions that are marking your house feel cramped and small.
But the point is that you don’t want to get rid of the possessions that really matter; you don’t want to lose those quirky furnishings or aesthetic pieces that portray your personality. Photographs of you and your loved ones are obviously a necessity, but you could also decorate those sparse walls with some handmade artwork, for example. You could get your kids and your partner involved. Remember, a house doesn’t have to be cluttered with belongings to feel like “home” but it should have some marks of the family in every room.
Prioritise sprucing up the bedrooms.
Don’t underestimate the importance of the bedroom, by any means. Everyone in the family needs a space that they can call their own if they want to truly feel comfortable in their own home. Perhaps you all enjoy relaxing in the living room but squabbles over the remote and the public nature of the room might still leave you all with the feeling that you don’t really have a space to get away from it on occasion.
The only personal space anyone has is their bedroom, so you should strive to make this space as cosy as possible. Help your children redesign the walls and the general aesthetic if they’re not happy with how it looks; this should be their “home” at home. You could browse through some luxury duvets in order to improve the comfort of everyone’s beds. And warm lighting is certainly a great warm to create a cosier and more inviting feel to a room.
Don’t forget your outdoor space.
Most importantly, you need to spruce up your home’s exterior. That means you should keep on top of mowing the lawn and cutting back weeds or dead plants but it extends beyond the garden. Think about the first impression your house makes whenever you or anyone else sees it. Does it look impressive from the outside? If not then it’s time to make some changes. You’d be amazed by the effect of a lick of paint on a door or a windowsill. You could even line up some flowers at the front of the house because nature can really brighten up an aesthetic; there’s no reason as to why you should hide all your pretty floral arrangements around the back of your property.
