Do's and Don'ts of Home Décor: Getting Started

While home décor is all about creativity and adding your personal touch, there are a few rules to follow to maximize the flow and harmony of any room. The guidelines to home decorating are broad, and will allow you to think outside of the box while imposing just a few small restrictions. Here are a few do's and don’ts of interior decorating:

Do research different décor styles to find the one that best suits your taste and home functionality.

Do take in mind that when it comes to furniture, a high price usually means high quality. Even though it might seem like an unnecessary expenditure, selecting a quality piece of furniture from the start will save you money and time in the long run.

Don't overspend on items without being aware of your budget and restrictions.

Do define the focal point of the room. Decorate in straight lines around it to maintain slight symmetry and harmony.

Don't plan your layout without first considering the room’s focal point and how you will preserve its attractiveness. In this way, your décor will be placed where it will be appreciated without taking away from the attention drawn to the focal point.

Do make a rough draft of your potential layout, accounting for space measurements of the different components of the room. This includes walls, adjacent walls, closets, windows, electrical sockets, and doors.

Do test different locations and layout possibilities that you may have not considered. These might offer just the look that you're after.

Do think about the functionality of a room before establishing a theme or home décor style. Always be sure that the atmosphere is relevant to the uses of the room and the way your family “works.”

Don't forget to consider the essence of your home, including architectural features, location, and atmosphere, before deciding on a décor style.
