Re-Thinking Those Home Décor Ideas

 

Re-Thinking Those Home Décor Ideas

by Amy Lignor

 

For those of us who have seen the “regrets” of home decoration choices up close and personal, it seems fitting that all homeowners get a feel as to the ideas that should be absolutely avoided when re-decorating those spacious areas. Most home decoration choices, bad décor, do-it-yourself, regrettable, impressions, fads, decor & childrenespecially, if you are actually re-decorating your home in order to put the listing on the market; if this is the fact, the choices you make need to be the right ones.

There are homes where you bring the children with you (because they’re invited, of course) and end up staring into a room filled with alabaster white seats. For the mother of those particular children, the fear runs through you. Especially if you’ve stopped at a fast food chain on the way to “the party” and the kids delved into some melting chocolate concoctions. Just think how the homeowner feels? Yes…let us think about that. White upholstery is something people think is a crisp, fresh look; a look that allows you to decorate the surroundings and paint the walls, etc., with any color you choose because the furniture doesn’t get in the way. Trouble is, if choosing this look make sure that slipcovers are also part of the décor, because you will be dealing with chocolate stains sooner than you know it.

 

Staying with the children angle, walking into those homes with strange tables and chairs – perhaps those modern-art designs with edges as sharp as scissors – is a bad décor idea. Not only are you talking a safety issue but, as a homeowner, you are also talking about investing in a massive amount of insurance and a whole lot of prayer.

 

It is a big thing to ‘do-it-yourself’ when it comes to fixing up around the homestead. But more than one family member (usually the wife looking at the husband) will complain when that proverbial “project” goes halfway and no further. If you don’t have a real professional who knows what they’re doing running around the house, then getting someone who is becomes a must – especially if you want to sell.

 

Sitting down in a dining room once can become a major, unforgettable experience in your life…all because of the wallpaper. The term “busy” is one thing, but the term “what were they thinking?” is another. What happens when you are led into a dining room where the wallpaper boasts a fox and hound scene with more than one furry corpse hanging from the saddle of the horse that the well-dressed hunting equestrian is riding? Trust the fact that this is not something someone can see out of the corner of their eye while trying to digest food. Yes, it is a fact that some have bad taste and that a buyer of a home can certainly tear wallpaper down if they do not want it there. But taking the time to rethink the possibilities of your bare walls would be far easier. Also try to remember that a coat of paint may always be the right thing, seeing as that you can simply paint over it when the next re-decoration project comes around.

 

Now are those little extras that are thought about constantly when it comes to “finishing” a room. It is necessary to understand that a shag carpet went out in the 1970’s. Not only is it an eyesore, but it’s also extremely hard to clean and everything your favorite family pet loses on a daily basis from their own coats gets trapped in it. When it comes to colors, again, the pure white choice is not the right one – unless, of course, the room will be decorated and sealed from all visitors at all times, even your own pet.

 

When it comes to your windows and doors, the idea of having an “open” scheme to give the impression of a larger area is just fine, but not having even the faintest hint of some sort of curtains makes it feel not only open but still being worked on. Heavy curtains are not necessary; neither are screens or shades. But if you want to give that added color, there are swaths of ideas that can be chosen from the curtain arena.

 

In the end, make sure to really think about those home décor decisions before sinking time and money into the project. That way – whether wanting to update or wanting to sell at some point – the choices you make can never be regretted.
