Is maintaining a theme for interior decorating your house important?

The interior design of a house does a lot more than simply providing your abode with a sense of style and comfort; it also reflects on what your interests are, how your lifestyle is, and who you are as a person. When you adorn your space with a theme, it offers a chance to you to add a personal and unique touch to the overall vibe. Whether you want the style of the house to be modern or contemporary, minimalistic or industrialist, or for that matter, rustic or traditional, apply some of the basic principles of designing and change the face of your space as per your taste.

A theme is a good way to bind together individual design elements. But our choices are just as diverse as our personalities. The more the number of family members, the greater the confusion is likely to be. Thus, the first step is, of course, to narrow down on a theme that is liked by everyone. For instance, a minimalistic modern theme is a logical option for a compact, city-side home you recently purchase. You can easily add a hint of visual interest by layering every corner with classic elements as accent pieces, a preferred hallmark of modern minimalism.

At certain times, you may be aware of the fact that you want a theme, but lack an idea or direction to begin. Plus, with the number of décor items coming to life, it’s hard to stick to a single theme. In such cases, the house is likely to have a confusing appearance and importantly, no systematic structure. However, creating a few lists might help you to get out of a situation like this. Start by taking note of things that you want in the house, post which, you can list down the themes that seem to be appealing. The next obvious step is to peruse artifacts and décor items that are sure to jump out at you. Whilst doing this, a good rule of
thumb is to ensure that you do not overload your house with multiple themes – per room, or extensive home décor products. A few elements that represent the chosen theme will give the space an edge; just navigate the visual focal points, of course.

Other than this, what cannot be ignored is picking the right furniture for your space. The biggest challenge faced by most people is owning furniture that doesn’t necessarily fit in the new or renovated space. For instance, an oversized sofa, a small dining table for a big living room, or an out-of-the-place wardrobe for the bedroom. All of this can make the space look cramped and cluttered. Thus, before investing in the furniture pieces, designate the placement of each piece and measure its size to make sure the right things fit at just the right corners. Lastly, remember that nothing but your lighting fixtures will give the subtle
accent to your themes, like pothole sconces or colonial fittings.

Taking into consideration all these points, it seems more than certain to have a designated theme for your home so that, you can translate your thoughts, vision, and interests onto a canvas – which happens to be your lovely abode. This way, your home will attain a balance and you’ll have fun decorating it!
