Most people find it very difficult to get settled in any new place, especially when you recently shift houses. Therefore, we thought of discussing it today on this platform to find out things we all can do to adapt to a new place and turn a house into a home. I have learned one thing that a house is just the name of the structure, but a home is about what goes inside it. A home defines the people that live inside, and things that transform an ordinary space into our own place.
Instead of digging the matter deeply, let us generalize a few universal ideas to help create an abode that appears welcoming, warm, and live-able.
Add your Personal Touch!
You should add a personal touch to the given space so that it starts feeling like yours; start with the floor. Many flooring options are available nowadays, such as wooden floors and ceramic tiles, but rugs and carpets seem to be the most suitable options. Though textiles are not the sole things you can do to your carpets, floors and rugs give a warm feeling and compose a place to appear more liveable. To make a home look happier and merrier, you must add your personal touch to things you have picked for your place. For example, lay down carpets and rugs in your favorite color and also the ones that can make you comfortable and happy whether you have inherited that piece from your grandmother or bought it from a thrift store.
Play with Colours
Shades of wood color appear to be dominant in most of the homes in Pakistan because people remain doubtful about how to play with their favorite colors. I think we must add colors of our choice in the home interior. For example, I love the blue color, and I can go crazy with it, so I have tried a lot with this color in my home from table lamps’ shades, to cushions, from rugs to curtains and from throws to table covers. You can also play with your favorite color but learn how to build balance and harmony between different colors. Interior architects and designers suggest keeping the base color neutral in order to let accessories be obvious and convey the message of calmness. Keep the walls color-neutral, such as off-white, white, or beige, and change accessories in different colors from time to time.
Change Interior as per Your Requirements
Who says a dining room has to be a dining room only? A room can serve multiple purposes at a time. I have also learned with time that a house feeling like a home has much to do with its functionality. Deciding a design requires a sitting with an architect, but you will have to determine the functionalities of space yourself. For example, storage is a significant issue that can sometimes make our homes look cluttered and a bit messier, if it is not handled thoroughly. We have discovered that storage has an aesthetic aspect as well, such as, horizontal shelves or bracket shelves to pile up accessories or books in any room can make the space attractive and lively. Besides, you can pick different kinds of storage devices to display them on their own or store things within them and display a tidy room that looks pretty as well.
You do not need an interior design expert to help you turn a space into the home but do it all yourself to spruce up and customize your home in your way.
