Are you feeling the need to freshen up your home? A vase of flowers might not cut it. Instead, you might want to think about decorating. That can take many forms. All your choices reflect your personality and tastes. But which approach is the right approach for you? Consider the following:
Minimalist home decorating is just that: minimum. You’re going to be taking away versus adding. Minimalism is defined by neutral colors as variation of white tones. Lighting should be unobtrusive, but in plentiful supply. When adding accents, less is more. You don’t want to fill up shelves or tables with knick-knacks. Concealed storage also adds to the minimalist approach.
Eclectic design is the very opposite of minimalist approach. Here you bring in a lot of things that make you happy. Best of all, nothing has to match in terms of design or style. This approach is other referred to as “thrift store chic.” That’s because you can find a lot of treasures by shopping thrift stores, yard sales and Craigslist. For color schemes, think bold pastels and accent walls. Even though you’re going eclectic doesn’t mean you have to make things look cluttered. Let your accents be special.
Don’t Decorate Everything at Once
You don’t have to decorate the entire house all at once. Think of this as an ongoing project. Once you’ve established a style for a particular room, you can go on the “hunt” for more things to add but it doesn’t all have to be complete on a single Saturday.
To keep costs down, you might also want to consider DIY projects. Most lumberyards will precut wood to your specs. That will let you create all kinds of table legs for an interesting piece of reclaimed wood you might happen upon. That would be easy to assemble especially with the help of YouTube DIY videos!
Before you start to pull a room together, you’ll want to “take it apart.” That means getting rid of any item you’re not going to use or replace. This is where Junk King Dallas can be of assistance.
