When it comes to home improvement, there are many factors to take into consideration, each of them important. After all, “ home is where the heart is,” and so a house isn’t truly a home until it’s worth the heart’s true love. Therefore, it falls to us to determine what kind of house will fit that lofty bill and give us the home of our dreams, the home we truly deserve. There are countless options, too, so it’s not like picking out a new pair of Nike shoes. It tends to help us out greatly to look into the ideas that others have had in order to narrow our own focus and get a nice through line to our biggest and best ideas. Here are some suggestions to help you do just that.
First and foremost, consider the unifying power of a theme. Theming your home can make the whole thing come to life and give it a nice cohesive feel to it. No longer will your house be a mere collection of rooms but, rather, a home. One such theme is an oceanic theme. Such as a theme starts with color palette evocative of the ocean. So, you would want to use shades of blue and green, such as teal, cyan, and seafoam, not to mention some oranges, pinks, and other colors that evoke the image of coral. Then, you’ll want to spruce the place up with thematically appropriate decor. This could be a fish tank, vintage diving gear replicas, anchors, seashells, and more. Paintings, posters, and photos that are on theme also work wonders here. Another thing to consider is that a single theme unifying your whole home may not be for you. Feel free to do different themes for each room, a single themed room, such as your living room or bedroom, or something inbetween.
Another thing to consider when designing your dream home is the flow of your space. How you’ll navigate your home is important. More important than we often recognize at the very least. Therefore, it behooves us to put more thought into this aspect of interior design. So, take a look at your living room. Particularly, turn the negative space of your room into walkways and try to make those walkways connect everything together is the most efficient walkways possible. You’ll want moving from room to room, and from one point of interest to the next within a room, as easy and efficient as possible for maximum enjoyment.
