When it comes to your home, you want it to look the best it can be. Not only for any guests who come by but for your own satisfaction and enjoyment.

In order to ensure your home is decorated to the standard you want it to be, it’s important to know what you need in order to help transform it. If you’re looking to help decorate your home, here are seven tips to decorate your home beautifully this year.

1. Get inspired with Pinterest

    Pinterest serves as a great platform to help inspire you, especially if you’re someone who doesn’t have the natural talent when it comes to interior design. Why not take inspiration from the professionals themselves?

    There are plenty of Pinterest pins that you can explore and take inspiration from when it comes to revamping a room or decorating a certain part of the home. Pinterest is free to use and is one of those social media platforms that takes a little getting used to. However, it works similarly to that of Google where you input some text and the results of that text show up in the form of pins.

    For example, if you’re looking for modern interior design, then you’ll simply need to input this phrase into Pinterest and you’ll get pages of pins to give you all of the inspiration you need for your home transformation.

    2. Look at artwork to put on the wall

      Artwork can really help transform the home, especially when you’re looking to add that pop of color or that interesting feature that becomes a conversation starter with your guests.

      There are lots of artwork options out there, including various reprints available on generic sites. However, when it comes to artwork, it’s worth exploring new and upcoming artists, or if you can afford them, the renowned painters.

      Investing in artwork is not only just a good look for your home but it can be an investment that ends up making you a lot of money in the future. Who knows what new and upcoming artists might turn into the next Picasso of their time? Take a look at artists like this one for inspiration.

      3. Always look to accessorize

        Accessories are a great addition to the home and they make the space interesting, even when you’re going for a minimal look.

        When picking out accessories, make sure they serve a purpose in the space. Mistakes can be made when decorating a room whereby you opt for items that just clutter the space, rather than add value to them.

        If you’re looking to add a calm and tranquil look to the space, opt for some indoor plants but be wary of where these are placed and the types of plants you choose. You want plants that you have the time to look after and that you’re not going to do damage to.

        Seek inspiration online and don’t be cautious when it comes to adding accessories. Look at what fits the space and the theme of the room.

        4. Be mindful of color

          Color is something to be conscious of when it comes to decorating your home beautifully. Sometimes color can add wonders to the home and other times they can end up clashing and causing an eye sore.

          When it comes to color, experiment with colors that go together, while also making sure it matches the interior decoration from the soft furnishings to the furniture.

          If you’re looking to keep it neutral but have experimented with color, then keep colors neutral on the walls and floors. The soft furnishings are where you can add pops of color. There are also some wonderful patterns and designs to choose from, so don’t be afraid to think out of the box and try something a little different.

          5. Pick one piece of furniture as a focal point

            When decorating a space, it’s often recommended that you pick one piece of furniture for the focal point of the space. For example, it could be a fireplace in the living room that is the focal point of the room. The bedroom could be a four-poster bed that’s placed at an angle in the middle of the space.

            This one piece of furniture is at the center of the room – although doesn’t physically need to be placed in the center. What it means is that you can position and decorate with furniture around this focal point. Coming back to the fireplace in the living room, you may want to place a flatscreen television above the fireplace with comfy couches surrounding the fire.

            If you’re struggling to find the right piece of furniture as that focal point, consider going back to the Pinterest boards and identifying what focal points are within the pin images.

            6. Personality is key

              Personality is a great way to decorate the space and to make it seem more homely, rather than being just another show home design.

              When it comes to personality, put up photo frames and make use of sentimental items that would otherwise be locked away in a cupboard or attic, never to be seen other than every decade or so.

              Personality brings life to the home and it’s something that every family home should have, even those of the rich and famous.

              7. Decorate bit by bit

                Decorating doesn’t need to be something you do all at once. Part of the enjoyment that comes with decorating is that you’re doing it bit by bit. Take your time and understand what your home needs or doesn’t need. 

                Think about each room that you’re decorating and consider what is needed before you go throwing yourself into the decorating part. Plan and assess each area and allocate a budget that ensures you have everything you need.

                With these tips, you’ll be able to transform your home from its current drab to something more exciting. You can come home feeling like you’ve got a great place to come back to, rather than something you hate to see.
