How to decorate your new home

Thanks a lot to you are here again! πŸ™‚ The new topic of the Grabbit Squad blog is the decorating.

So it just happened, you moved successfully into your new home. Congratulations! πŸ™‚ How many stressful and tiring day, right? Now you just enjoy the time spent at your new home. Surely you have several feelings… maybe you are a little bit disappointed because of missing your old flat, or inversely you couldn’t be happier than now, because you found the perfect home for you. πŸ™‚

In case your flat has got an unfriendly atmosphere or is too empty or just thinking about decorating it, but you don’t know where to start? There are so many decoration options and we collect a few for you.

1) Function of the space

It seems to be straightforward, like kitchen is for cooking, family room is for family gatherings.. it is not. Think more about how you are going to use the space. For example, how many of your family members would be in the room at any given time – thus you going to find out how many seating spaces you need. Think – what are the activities you prefer doing… watching TV, reading, playing board games, playing with kids, or relaxing in front of the fireplace – thus you would know what storage options you need, whether you need a reading nook or conversation area by the fireplace.

2) Make a changing list

Is there anything you know that you for sure want to change? Write it down. Additionally, start thinking of things you absolutely must have or would like to have. Imagine the perfect bedroom (or find a picture) and identify what it is about that specific bedroom that makes it so dreamy. Write it down. 

3) Find out Your Favorite Color Scheme

Once you have your palette established, let the rest of the decor start from that. Use neutral colors for investment pieces, like the sofa and dining table, and put the colour in paint or accent pieces like pillows, lamps and art.

4) Create a picture wall

Turn one of the walls in your flat, for example in the living room, bedroom or hallway into a little gallery and display framed photos about your family and friends, artwork and other conspicuous things. Use the same type of frames but of different shapes and sizes.

5) Make a symmetrical look

It can be really exciting to create a symmetrical look for one of the rooms. It’s easier to do that in your bedroom. The main piece of furniture can be the bed, with two same nightstands and matching table lamps. The chandelier or pendant lamp will be at the center of the room.
