When it comes to home improvement, you’ve got your work cut out for you. After all, it’s hard work to remodel a home, especially for a lay person. Furthermore, the pressure is on to create, or at least make steps toward, your dream home, and a dream anything, by definition, must be perfect. This, of course, creates a lot of tension. There may be a gap between what your skill level allows and what your heart desires, for one thing. Another common hurdle, and one that I can help you with today, is simply having too many options and an underdeveloped idea of your dream home. By simply focusing your vision with some planning, you can create a clearer path to your dream home. Here are a few simple suggestions to help you narrow your focus.
First and foremost, consider the unifying power of a theme. A theme can, when done right, give your house the feeling of a cohesive whole and really bring the whole thing to life. One example of a theme is an oceanic theme. For this theme, you’ll want to start with a color palette of blues and greens that are evocative of the ocean. For example, teal, turquoise, and seafoam. Add to this some thematically appropriate decor, such as seashells, anchors, an aquarium, or some retro diving gear (replicas, of course). You can also add to this some on theme paintings, posters, or photos. Of course, you don’t have to commit to a single theme across your whole home. You can a different theme for each room, a single themed room, or any combination you like. Simply having an oceanic living room or master bedroom will bring an extra dimension to your living space.
Another idea for your dream is simply to celebrate YOU. Well, you and your family, of course. What I mean by this is simply documenting your relationship with your loved ones via photos, as the primary example, in a sort of memory collage in your home. This doesn’t have to be a whole room, or anything. Half a wall will suffice. But, you can hang photos, creative works, such as drawings, poems, etc. and more to catalogue your family’s unique relationship and experience, including the process of recreating your home. And, you can even buy some personalized gear from Personlization Mall as a sort of cherry on top. This will add the ultimate personal touch to your home and is worth considering, at the very least.
