Decorating a Small Apartment

Home decoration is always a personalized process. Each home showcases the unique identity of the family members residing staying in the house. This is achieved by choosing decorative accents for the rooms which reflect the persona of the person or family living in it, and which have a special place in his or her life. The items which are purchased for home decoration should always be something that a person likes, and not something that is bought because it is in fashion. For a small room, it is advisable to minimize the home decor items, as too many knick knacks will make it difficult to move freely.

Theme of the Room:
Each room in the home serves a different purpose and the articles used for decorating it should match the theme chosen for the room. A room which has carved or traditional furniture should have paintings which reflect that theme. Abstract paintings and eclectic lamps are best suited for a room which has very sleek and modern furniture. Family rooms should have utilitarian, easy to use and maintain items. Bedrooms should have personal items such as family photographs and wall hangings.

Price:
Artefacts can range from the reasonably priced ones to the phenomenally expensive. Choose something that is within your budget and which you will enjoy looking at. Spend some time before you make your final purchase, since you are going to be looking at these things for many years to come. Traditional handicrafts cost much less than the trendy, fashionable home decor. Do not buy a painting because the price is likely to go up after some years, buy it because you like it and it matches the décor of your home.

Choose fewer artefacts, but choose them well:
Do not clutter up your home with too many things. They tend to take away from the beauty of your room, and they also make a room look cluttered. A few well-chosen artefacts are all that you need to make your home look stunning. Two elegant table lamps will look much better than a table full of various crystal objects.

The basic rule which you must remember when you are buying decorative items for your home is that you should like what you are buying. Often we get carried away by someone else’s opinion and forget to trust our instincts. The price and the style must suit your requirements, but above all you should be happy to keep it in your home.

Co-ordination:
The artefacts should not clash with each other – either in style or in colour. Modern sleek furniture will clash with traditional lamps and will spoil the look of a room. The colours of the paintings should not be at variance with the carpets and the other colour schemes in the rooms. It should not be a mish-mash of styles, nor should it be an abundance of sharply contrasting colours. It is not easy to do this, it mainly comes from experience. It is best to trust your instincts and not overdo anything.
