PICK UP YOUR PAINT
Paint comes in a variety of sheens as well as in either oil or latex. Latex paint is the most commonly and preferred paint type to use because of its ease of clean up and long lasting durability. It also tends to be more fade resistant and breathes better than oil, resulting in less blistering of the paint. I recommend using a latex paint for most of your walls and household uses. Thanks to modern paint technology there is a paint for every type of surface. In most cases professional painters will select a flat acrylic paint for the ceiling, a low-sheen acrylic for the walls and a semi-gloss or gloss acrylic for the woodwork.
The easiest way to choose the best interior paint colors is to start with colors you love. When you start with the colors you love, you are not bound by the traditional color schemes for a particular decorating style. Using your own favorite color as your base color, you can use it to create a color scheme around it.
THE HOME LIGHTING EFFECT
Lighting is one of the key elements that helps make your house a home. The proper lighting enables you to perform tasks easily, makes you feel safer and more comfortable, and allows you to enjoy your home at its full potential.Direct or task lighting is focused in the space you are trying to work. Ambient or indirect lighting is used for ambiance and for overall lighting of a space. Once chosen you can begin to choose lighting options. Each room in your home should have a mood you want to set, as well as a function you want your lighting to serve.
OUT OF BOX THINKING
Every house should be a warm haven, a place where we throw off the cares of the world and relax with family and friends. From the kitchen where we launch our busy days to the bedrooms where we close our eyes at night and dream, we want each space to reflect our personal tastes and sensibilities. What looks good in the store may look like an elephant in the room when you bring it home. Or it’s too tiny to be of any significance. So always vary scale and proportion. But we desire that our rooms be comfortable and practical. Pulling all the components together is a tall order, and yet it's also wonderfully rewarding. Use the home decorating tips we've provided here as inspiration, and create the kinds of rooms your loved ones will want to hurry home to enjoy.
SELECT A THEME FOR HOME INTERIORS
Whether you're decorating a single room or a whole house, you can find the perfect theme and style to match. Focus in on your preferences, options, and elements that will allow you to achieve your dream room or home—even if you're revamping a cottage or a castle. Start by going through each room and its details – flooring, colours, wallpaper, et cetera. Having a theme does not mean that you should paint all the rooms in the same colour or shade; it is rather about having a common denominator, that recurs in the rooms and that makes you recognize yourself in the space. If you succeed in creating a common theme, your home will feel a lot more quiet and harmonious.
