When it comes to home improvement, there are a number of factors that come into play when designing your dream home. There are so many little decisions to make, and so many projects to be completed, it can be overwhelming. By the time it’s over, you’ll need to book a trip with Travelocity to deal with the stress. However, I think we can all agree that it’s worth it once you see your perfect dream home come to life before your eyes. Now, all you have to do is figure out what perfect looks like to you. Here are some ideas to get the ball rolling.
First and foremost, consider using a theme in your home. A theme can give your home a unifying feeling that ties the whole home together and brings your whole home to life. One example of such a theme is an oceanic theme. Such a theme would start with a palette evocative of the ocean, so you’d want to use colors such as a greens and blues like teal, seafoam, and cyan. Then, you’d want to add on theme decor, such as seashells, anchors, vintage diving gear replicas, nauticals stars, and more. You can also use posters, paintings, and photos that are on theme to complete this picture. Keep in mind that you don’t have to commit to a single theme across your whole home. You could do a unique theme for each room, a single themed room, or anything in between.
Another way to create your dream home is consider the flow of your living space. Go into your living room right now, or if you’re using your phone or a laptop to read this, just look up, and look at the space between the furniture as a series of invisible pathways. Your goal when designing your new dream home is to make those pathways as easy and care free to navigate as possible. After all, you don’t want to navigate a labyrinth every time you need to get to the bathroom. So, make sure to maximize the efficiency of the paths from room to room and from one point of interest to the next within a room for the utmost enjoyment of your space.
