Moving into a new home can be one of the great joys of life, but it can also be a time of uncertainty, especially when it comes to decorating. How to make your space more beautiful, reflecting your personal sense of style? Do it right and you will end up in a comfortable and happy home. Do it wrong and you will end up with a mess of furniture, fabrics and colors that will never freeze into a fine whole. With a little design and the same steps used by professional interior designers, you are much more likely to succeed.
Don’t start in a furniture store
Many have heard the advice to avoid shopping hungry because it leads to bad choices. The same goes for furniture stores – don’t panic about shopping just because you have an empty house. Yes, you need a sofa. But if you choose a pink striped cross section just because you are buying it, doing nothing or thinking about another room, you are stuck in it. The rest of the room should be built around this couch, and if it is too big for the space, it will always look awkward.
Start with the room you want to decorate, armed with a measuring tape and a notebook.
Know your measurements
It is necessary to fit the scale of the furniture in the size of the room. A deep sofa can easily control a small room, and thin chairs can get lost in a large open attic. Before you start planning, measure the length and width of each room to be decorated, as well as the height of the ceiling and all objects – stairs, pillars, heaters and other obstacles. It is also a good idea to measure the window openings and their lower, upper and side window coverings.
