A lot of room decorating is based on personal taste, aesthetics and working ease. That huge chandelier that looked gorgeous in an office hallway is impractical at a home. Similarly the choice of colors and artifacts too add a certain amount of elegance and personality to the room. Listed below are a few rooms decorating ideas that will help you pep up your house.
Ideas For Room Decoration
Bedrooms are a private space that needs to be designed and decorated based on the person inhibiting the room. Ideally children’s bedroom should be free from any fragile artifacts, sharp edges and heavy furniture. Light weight wooden furniture with rounded off edges work great for children’s room. The colors could be pleasant, funky or even bright, depending on their taste and the overall house theme. Darker colors help in cleaning the place quicker. All furniture to one side of the room works best for children, as they get the much needed free space in their room to jump and run. Bedrooms of teenagers need a good bed, study table, electric points to connect laptops, ipods etc. They also need some space to put in a bean bag or other movable chairs, if their friends drop by. The room should have a dressing table, cupboard, graffiti wall/board.
A small showcase would be good, if it’s a girl’s room. They also might love to hang some wall posters! Long sitting ledges cum storage spaces would be ideal in teen rooms with large windows. It gives them a personal corner where they can think, read or just chat with friends, while making full use of the natural light. Couples bedroom can be in warm tones, with an inviting bed and a good bouquet of flowers to set the mood. Aroma candles or hidden lights from behind the bed head board work best to give a faint glow to the room.
Living room is the face of your house. A place that a guest or a casual visitor first sees and experiences in your house. The living room can be painted in fresh colors to make it inviting. If it is a single working person’s apartment, the living room can have a thick colorful carpet. It can double up as a comfortable place to snooze off while watching a late night movie or working late at home. If the rooms are small, then mix and match textures in colors and artwork to give the living room some depth. If you are the artsy types, then convert a wall into art corner, with lovely art work on display.
It could be a wall than connects your living room to your kitchen or a corner if you have a small corner dining area. Young couples could add transparent tables to their living rooms to give the rooms a bigger feel. A family living room should have a photo corner, be it on a desk, near TV unit or on the wall. The various shapes and sizes of pictures adorning the living room give the room a lively feel. For a more interesting variation, stick the pictures on small silver trays and hang them on one corner wall in the room. This will give the room a bold look and pull the visitors eye to that corner. It will also add depth to the room.
Family kitchens need large dining tables, as the morning rush and activities happen around the table. If you have a bigger kitchen, you could have a separate breakfast table, close to the kitchen counter. This will help you toss the hot pan cakes right into the child’s plate while chatting with your child about the day ahead. You can fix a soft board on front of island kitchen counter or the breakfast counter. This could be a place to display your child’s art work. You could even have a nicely decorated magnetic notepad on the fridge. It would work as the place to write the all important notes for everyone to see. A single’s kitchen could have a small breakfast table with a fruit basket.
This will ensure that you eat healthy even when you are too busy to cook. Electrical points should be away from children’s reach and the places that are within reach, should be concealed with funny stickers. Fridge magnets or photo frame does too add a distinct charm to the kitchen. You could collect magnets from various places that you visit and add it to your collection. This will help children identify easily the many places they have visited!
