Decorating and Designing a Home You Will Love
It is important that your home is a representation of you how you live, and what you love. If your home is not decorated and designed as you would like it to be, then you can find that it affects the enjoyment you get out of the rooms and spaces. To design and decorate a home you will love, here are a few pointers to get you going in the right direction.

Looking at How You Use Your Home
Firstly, you are going to need to think about how you use your home and the spaces within your home. Are you fully using all spaces, or are there rooms that are under-loved? Getting to grips with how you live will allow you to see where you need to focus your attention and effort. For example, if the kitchen is the heart of your home, then invest your time into the redecoration of this space and make sure there are comfy places to sit and work.
If you find your children spend more time in their bedrooms than in the living room, then make sure they have everything they need in them. You might find that a particular space is always a dumping ground, so it needs better storage. Sometimes you can find that you can work with what you have already, and other times you will find that you need to start from scratch.
Starting a Project from Scratch
Sometimes you will find that spaces and rooms in your home require a complete overhaul. This may be because you are not happy with the color scheme or layout of a room. Starting a project from scratch can at times feel incredibly overwhelming; taking it step by step, and not taking on too much at any given time is crucial for success.
Before stripping everything back to the bare bones you must think about what you want to change and why. There may be elements you want to change, but when you start ripping them out you may wish you had kept. So, always remember to take your time, and plan carefully what you want to do.
Making Spaces Functional
When you are designing spaces, it can be hard to sometimes overlook the all-important functionality of a room. For example, when you are recreating a haven in your master bedroom, you may overlook the need to buy functional plastic hangers in bulk.
When you overlook functionality and purpose, you end up creating rooms and spaces that never work how you want them to. To ensure that this does not happen, always spend your time evaluating what function and purpose a room needs to have and think about how you can incorporate it fully.
Drawing on Inspiration from Others
Getting together ideas for your home decoration and design can feel difficult at times – especially if you do not know where to start. It is possible to draw on inspiration from others by looking at blogs, and by browsing through home decor websites and magazines. Pulling together ideas and inspiration onto a mood board can help you create spaces you truly end up loving and enjoying.
