Find The Perfect Home Decor With These 6 Tips

Struggling to find decor that matches your style? Here are some tips to jumpstart your interior design.

One of the hardest parts about interior decorating and design is figuring out your own style and tastes. To further complicate things, our styles and taste are constantly evolving. Some people like everything, which can make it difficult to narrow down your ideas into a single concept. Others are extremely picky and have trouble finding anything that matches their personality. Bottom line — if you struggle to define your own tastes, picking furniture, room colors, and decor can be quite the challenge.

Luckily, our real estate agents are here to help. We've seen thousands of homes and designs, so we know the importance of individual style. We compiled a list of the top 6 ways to define your own interior style and preferences:

  1. Use Your Closet For Inspiration
    If you're struggling to define your style, start by taking a look in your closet. Your clothing will say a lot about your personal tastes. If you're constantly buying the same colors and styles, then it'd probably be a safe bet to incorporate those elements into your interior design. If your clothes are mostly neutral colors, then you might enjoy neutral tones in your decor.

  2. Check Out Blogs And Magazines
    One of the easiest ways to define things you like and dislike is by checking out blogs, magazines, and websites like Pinterest. If you find something you like, simply bookmark a page or rip out a section of a magazine and start a collection. When it comes to time to design a room, you'll have a bunch of content to use for inspiration.

  3. Look At Other Homes
    Shopping for homes will help you quickly realize what you like and dislike when it comes to home decor. Attend some local open houses, check out online listings, or schedule an appointment with a real estate agent.

  4. Stop By Some High-End Stores
    Browsing some local high-end home decor shops will definitely give you a number of design ideas. You'll undoubtedly notice displays, colors, and styles that you like and dislike. You're not obligated to buy anything, but you can still get a sense of what you like and then seek our similar decor at a less expensive store.

  5. Conduct Some Experiments
    If you'd like to experiment with design concepts in your home, shop at a store with a generous return policy. Buy some furniture or tables that catch your eye, and stage them in your own living room. If you don't like it, take it back and try something else.

  6. Determine What You Don't Like
    If you're having trouble deciding on your style, it might help to start by figuring out what you don't like. If there are certain colors or patterns that are a no-go, thinking about what you dislike can actually be helpful when it comes to evaluating future concepts.

Interior design and decorating can be tricky, but remember to start with what you know you love. You're the one who will be living in your home, so you should ensure you're surrounded with decor that matches your tastes. For more tips on interior decorating, contact us today.
