Home décor is not just about the looks of the interior of your house. It also plays the key role in its functionality because, even the largest house can lack space if having a poor interior design, while a tiny apartment can be transformed into a cosy residence with enough space for just about everything with the right design and lighting. The smallest of homes flush with craftsmanship! Elegantly tiled floors, leaded-glass windows, expansive front porches, well-designed pantries, cave ceilings, and built-in cabinetry and bookcases define a house.
The house’s interior must be both aesthetically appealing and practical at the same time as it is the architecture that attracts people first. Craft is an expression of beauty, as opposed to decoration. Craftsmen are well versed with skills such as complex joinery and sturdy construction. A lot of people love the details and the craftsmanship – the built-ins and the leaded-glass windows, especially the intricate carvings and pillars that make Indian homes.
Keeping up with the trends in home decor can be tough. So, why not opt out of following the latest and greatest, and choose timeless home decor style over fleeting fads?
No matter what year it is, less is always more. The less you have crowding your shelves and tables, the better your home will look and the less you’ll have to dust! The same goes for the layout of each room. Lesser the congestion, more the space! Stick with furniture that’s proportional to the room so the space doesn’t look crowded.
Trendy colors change year to year and season to season, but a room always needs a bit of color to really pop. Avoid choosing bright wall colours and dark shades as they make the room appear smaller. Rather than investing in an orange couch or painting the living room aquamarine, choose accessories such as throw pillows, vases and even art in bold accent shades. These are easy to swap out every season or the next year.
As chic as that angular chair with a bucket seat looks in the magazine, don’t buy something on which you can’t comfortably sit. The same goes for glass coffee tables (too much potential for breakage) and shelves with no space. People tend to buy every other piece of furniture they see, although it just results in cramping up the house. Buy home decor items that are meant to be used, not just admired from afar.
Like function, comfort is an important factor when buying furniture. It’s not timeless if you have to replace your couch because you just can never relax on it. Buy something that looks good and also feels good.
Quality over quantity
Just because you have shelves doesn’t mean they all need to be overflowing, and just because you have walls doesn’t mean every square inch should be covered with a painting or photo. Choose art and accessories wisely. Shop less often for unique and high-quality items instead of over-buying just for the sake of putting something (anything) on your walls.
A great design of home furniture should be able to provide the homeowner better functions and beauty, which enable to give both comforts as well as enhance home living spaces. Design of home living furniture considers intended usage, ergonomics, anthropometric, as well as non-ergonomic functional requirements such as size, stack ability, weight, durability, and safety.
