5 Ways to Make Your Home Standout

August 17, 2022

There is a reason designers and bloggers love to talk about where celebrities live. Because when the fashion elite decorate their homes, they do it in style. If you want to look like an A-lister, consider these five approaches to making your surroundings pop.

Research and Plan Before You Buy

Think before you purchase. It is easy to fall into the trap of seeing something you like in a magazine or online and running out to get it for yourself. Try to avoid this sort of impulse buying until you have an overall vision of your project. Even if you plan to attack one room at a time, you can still create a final theme to ensure a logical flow from one zone to another. A rewarding place to start might be the most personal as that is where you spend much of your time and prepare for your day. To identify the right master bathroom ideas for you, look at the existing footprint and determine how to make the most of it. Prioritize what you want and align that with what you can afford. There are several options that you can include to achieve your desired outcome. Tackling your bath at the onset might spark the rest of your decisions.

Choose Eye-Catching Design Elements

Adding textures and colors that complement one another can make any room more interesting. Wallpaper is one of the first things a person notices when they enter a space. It can be a talking point and set the mood. If you settle on a busy pattern, consider something simplistic for accent pieces such as pillows or window hangings. In addition, hang art that works with the other motifs. One more critical factor is the color spectrum you pick. There are definite links between color and emotions. Red is typically associated with passion and appetite, orange with energy and cheerfulness, green with balance and nature and blue with serenity. Moreover, it is also common to attach personal meanings and memories to color, so be bold and make your statement.

Simplify Spaces That are Prone to Clutter

Perusing photos of Hollywood homes can be inspiring. There is often a sense of calm and purpose present throughout the gallery that you might hope to emulate. Kids, pets and visitors usually bring some disorder with them, but if you are prepared in advance, you can contain the messes. Remove objects from countertops and put them in places that are not immediately visible. Set out baskets or bins for shoes and toys to keep them organized. Some storage options double for benches, coffee tables and ottomans. These can hold remote controls, magazines and other items that tend to sit around.

Use Lighting Wisely

While you want to be able to see your surroundings, you mustn't saturate a space with too much lighting. Start by recognizing the primary function of a particular room. Know if it will be used for entertainment, studying or sleep. Once you understand the primary intentions, you can narrow your choice of fixtures and bulbs. Too much high-intensity light may lead to headaches and make it difficult to relax, so if you are designing a casual area, opt for softer lights that will not cause eye strain. Further, find a solution to distracting blue lights from computer screens and other electronic devices as it can interfere with your body's natural rhythms and make you susceptible to illness.

Mix It Up

Although you may have a unified focus for the overall design, that does not mean everything has to be the same. You can make each area unique by expanding on the original idea but having a twist. For example, if you want an international core feeling, you might infuse a sense of the Mediterranean in your kitchen, the Caribbean in the living room and the Alps in the study.

It is fun to gussy up your digs and share your personality with those who come by. Incorporate an array of elements and let your individuality speak for itself.
