Designing the rooms in your house requires time and energy. If it is your first time decorating, there are some key tips to help you along. There are some very basic things to get you started.

1) If there is more than just you living in the house, the first thing you need to do is think about the personalities of the other people you are living with. If you are single then you only need to look at your own personality. Problems can occur when two people live together with opposing design preferences. Compromise and negotiate on colour, furniture and accessories so you end up with rooms you both like.

2) Have a look in magazines and design journals for inspiration and to get an idea of what your room could handle. It can be hard to get creative and form ideas when you are looking at blank walls so these magazines should help.

3) The colours of the room will set the tone for the space so really take your time on that one. First start with the colours you like. If you already have furniture or have some in mind, look carefully at the colours in them. The fabrics in your room are also important so find curtains and things to compliment. In bedrooms, your bed linen should suit the colours on the walls and act as a focus.

4) It is important to position your furniture wisely so that you do not overfill the room. Making a room look and feeler smaller is not a good idea. Keep rearranging until it is right.

5) Accessories can really liven up a room and make it look like a home instead of a show room. Add extra colour and texture to your room by using plants and flowers. Not only are they good for the air around you but they can make a room feel more comfortable. Don’t be afraid to make your room look lived in, adding personal touches will make you feel more comfortable at home.

You can decorate your own home without finding it difficult. You just have to find out what your style is and what makes you want to be there and then have fun putting it all together.
