How to Furnish Home

Just the physical structure does not make a place home. It is what you put inside that structure and how it makes you feel and the mood it creates for you, that makes a cold building home. Furnishing an empty house seems like a daunting task. Many of us do not know how to go about furnishing a house and we do not know where to get furnishing ideas. Here are a few tips on how to furnish your house.

  • The first thing you must do is to focus on what you like or dislike, whether it is style, fabric or colors.
  • Decide on the style you want to use to furnish your house whether it is casual, traditional, French or modern.
  • If you cannot make up your mind then buy a few interior decoration books. Go through them and you will be able to decide on a style that you like.
  • The next step is to decide the colors you want to use to furnish your house. Choose colors that come to your mind when you say the word 'home'. Combine these colors to get more colors. Contrast and compliment the colors you like.
  • Each room has a specific function from the user's point of view. Furnish the room depending on how you want to use it. For example you may want to use to kitchen as your dinning space as well. Then you will need to have a dinning table and chairs in the kitchen.
  • A number of times the view that you get from your windows will dictate the way you furnish your house. If you can see the countryside from your window, then your interior décor and furnishing will match the country mood. If it is an urban cityscape that you can see from your window then your furnishing will be modern.
  • Choose furniture that you are comfortable with. Do not go in for a particular style just because it is in vogue.
  • You should be comfortable with the theme and the manner in which you have furnished your home. You should be able to relax and feel comfortable with the decorating you have done.
  • Remember that your home should reflect your personality, taste and preferences and not someone else's.
