When we purchase a house we want to make it a home. The difference between a house and home is a home is where we make an empty space our own and will live there creating our lives for years. When you walk into a home you feel different and more secure. The furniture and fixtures all work together. The house flows together and there aren’t any loose ends that make it feel like it shouldn’t be there.
The furniture in a home is warm and inviting. It has a warm natural color and seems to flow. When you walk into a room you know what its purpose is and that it isn’t just thrown together. Couches, comfortable chairs and fluffy pillows are all components that you want to have with furniture.
Next to the furniture you want to add tables which will help make small sitting areas. Along with these tables you want throw rugs, small pieces of abstract pieces and splashes of color. It will be at this point your room will start to take shape and will give you a structured canvas you can continue building on.
Once you have your skeleton room you want to start adding lights. The lights that you have in the room will help to accent the room with shadows, contrast and more. In addition to the lights you want to have custom light fixtures. These fixtures will add a custom visual element that can be changed over time.
The finishing touches that you put into your room will make it your own. You can add televisions, pictures, blankets, artwork from the kids and much more. When you start adding the small pieces here and there your room will become your own and one that people will love to visit and spend time in.
