It might be your first house decoration project, or you might be a seasoned pro with a good understanding of your preferences and the furniture pieces you need for your home. Whichever stage you’re at, these five tips will make decorating your home easy and enjoyable:
Firstly, it’s about you, your space and your lifestyle. When decorating your home, think about how you’re going to use the spaces, what functions you need each of the rooms to perform. Think about how you’ll be spending your time, do some research on interior trends for 2019 to ensure you keep your room present and on trend. It’s important to consider how often you host family and friends will determine the size of your dining table and how you spend your leisure time at home will inform the layout of your living room and the size and shape of your sofa.
As you think about your lifestyle, also think about the future. Is your family going to grow? Is it possible that you’ll start working from home? Consider home office ideas. Will you be taking up new hobbies which might require a dedicated space? Think about how you personalise your space to make the most of the room. Thinking three to five years ahead will ensure that your interiors will be functional and will work for you and your lifestyle for years to come.

Have a think and focus accordingly on what really matters to you when buying furniture, the way you personalise your space reflects you as a person so take your time when choosing!
