Decorating your home can feel like a huge project, especially when you haven’t had to decorate a space that big before. You want to use decorations to create a comfortable place that reflects your personality, but you don’t want to go overboard or fill the space with too much clutter. Figuring out that balance is what will help you to make your home into a welcoming space that people are excited to spend time in.

Your Personality

First and foremost, you don’t want to be redecorating your home every couple of months, that’s way too much work. So, you need to focus on bringing in your own personality rather than relying on trends that are popular at any particular moment. Trends will come and go, but your personality is here to stay. Try to choose items and colors that bring you joy and speak to who you are as a person. This will help you to create a cohesive look that really works for your goals for your home.

The Space

You also need to be thinking about the space you have when you are decorating your home. Things that work great in one home may not work at all in another home where the space is drastically different. So, you need to pay close attention to the space you are working with so you can optimize the design for that layout. You’ll want to choose fixtures that fill the space, without overpowering it. Bigger items will work in bigger spaces, but in a smaller space you may want to choose smaller pieces that make more sense for the layout.

Make a Plan

Your decorating goals don’t need to all come together at once. In fact, getting things done a little at a time with a plan in mind can help you to design a space that you love without getting overwhelmed. So, once you have an idea of your space and your personal style, take a moment to sit down and come up with an overall plan. This can change and evolve as you go but having a plan will help you to get your decorating done without pain and struggle.

Taking care of your house is a big thing to do, and the decoration is an important part of that process. By figuring out what you like and getting an idea of what you want to do with the space you can move forward. And then you can pull together a home that makes you feel safe and secure.
