Stylish Living: Balancing Functionality with Style

kitchen interior

Curb appeal and comfortable interiors are the two aspects of a complete home. Finding a way to meld functionality and ease of living with your style and comfort levels is an integral part of enjoying your space. This is why people advise that you have a redecoration fund in place before you buy a home. Being unable to redecorate your home to suit your tastes can help you feel like you’re living in a house and not at home.

This situation is bad for your stress levels. Home should be your haven and the guaranteed space where your mind and body can be at ease. From the moment you step out of the car and see the house, you should feel like you have arrived at your home. That’s why it’s important to hire a paving service for your home to make an attractive pathway from the driveway to your front door. In addition, get a professional painting firm to freshen the house and make it look new. Some people even get the front door replaced with something more modern and bright.

Finding out how to make your home feel more your own can help you to feel more comfortable. Being able to relax at home is the most important gift you can give your family and yourself to guarantee rest and mental wellness.

Decorating Style

The way you decorate the house has a lot to do with the feel of it. This is among the reasons why shops use displays and set pieces to showcase their products. Take your inspiration from these set pieces and interior design magazines to decorate your home.

Display items in groups of three. This helps to make them look more visually balanced and appealing. Vary heights and sizes to add dimension and interest. For example, three candles of the same color but varying heights on a side table help to fill in the space without compromising utility. Sometimes, people do not know what style suits them. This calls for trying out decorations in a bigger way.

Try out a minimalist approach in one room. Keep furniture and items to a minimum, but match everything in the same color. Alternatively, try out layering in another room. Lay rugs on the carpet in contrasting colors. Add cushions to the sofa and place mats on all table surfaces. Layer a thicker curtain over a gauzy curtain for the windows.

After a few weeks, you will notice which room you prefer to be in and which one helps you to relax better. This can help you to start adjusting your decorating throughout the house to match the style that appeals to you more.

Multiple Storage

Clutter is the enemy of relaxation. It can make you feel bothered and keep you from truly relaxing in the space. Find ways to incorporate storage solutions into your home to keep your spaces clutter-free.

Interesting bookshelves in the main living spaces help keep books organized and provide displays for knickknacks. Some shelves can also carry pretty bowls where people can drop their keys and sundry items to avoid losing them and adding to the clutter.

Converting your empty under staircase space into a storage room can help you to have a space to keep items you use weekly but do not need to have underfoot throughout the day. This space can hold sports equipment, shoes, umbrellas, rainwear, and a big box to throw toys into for those days you do not feel like picking up after your children.

Seek Elegance

An elegant touch can upscale your home easily. Put your detergent, soap, sanitizer, and other sundry everyday items into containers. Label them attractively to avoid mishaps and to add to the elegance of the container.

Use glass pitchers to store and serve water and juice. Have glass tumblers instead of cups to serve drinks. Place embroidered matching towels in every bathroom.

Add crown molding to your rooms and paint them to frame the walls and accentuate their colors. Use matching frames for every picture you have displayed throughout the house. Paint mismatching furniture the same color and replace all knobs with brass ones.

These are all touches that you can do with minimum expenditure. They can go a long way towards making your house look expensive.

Live in the Space You Want

Take pride in keeping an attractive home. You will find that it gets easier for you to keep the house clean and maintain the decorations because of the compliments you get. Sometimes, people need validation to keep working on an activity to make it into a habit.

If you love to have people in your house, then start working on your garden. Gardening is great for stress relief. It keeps you fit and attracts compliments within a short time once the plants and bushes begin to flower. You could grow flowering shrubs, which you can give away as thoughtful presents. You can even have a bed where you grow herbs and vegetables so you have fresh food all the time.

Living the lifestyle you want in your home does not require a great change on your part. It just needs you to know what you want to be willing to learn how to achieve it.
