When you first get started on home interior decorating, it is a good idea to have at least some notion of the kind of color scheme you might like. That is not to say that you cant change your mind while you are working out a plan. It is much better to change at this stage than when you already have the paint on the walls.
Not only are floating shelves functional, but they are also beautiful. You can find them in wood finishes of all colors for a traditional, rich look. If your home is more modern or art deco, there are some manufacturers who make floating shelves in a strong long lasting resin material. You can find these in all colors on the spectrum. This is a huge plus if you have a color theme in your room. There are many different designs for these shelves; there are thin sleek shelves as well as those with very intricate designs along the edges. No matter what your style, I am sure you will find a set of floating shelves that fit into the decor of your home.
If you look for pre-packaged shelves and just cant seem to find any that go well in your home, you may need to take another route. This would involve doing a bit more shopping on your part but what woman does not love shopping anyway, especially when you are doing it to beautify your home. You might find that you will have to buy the shelves separately from the brackets. You may decide that you would rather go this way even if you do find that the other ones are nice.
Another very useful item for any home is a coat rack. If you want to create something original you can make one yourself using a tree branch or a piece of driftwood. You can either mount it on a wall or suspend it from the ceiling or any other structure. Add hooks directly onto the rack or put hangers on it to protect its surface. Make sure it’s big enough to accommodate your clothes and accessories.
This is a particularly beautiful decoration because the contrast between the driftwood piece and the delicate pendants and necklaces is quite strong and visible. To make such a piece you’ll need a piece of driftwood or a fallen tree branch, some wool or string, a hammer, nails, a ruler, a pencil and a drill. Insert the nails. They will serve as hooks. Drill a hole into the wall and insert a nail to hang the decoration from. Attach the string and you’re done.
Good, well thought out interior decorating can add balance to a room and bring out its best features. Interior decorating should form the background for the way you choose to live in your home. If you have got a lot of books then it stands to reason that you will want plenty of good shelving. Plain wood shelves look best for this but if you already have some and they are beginning to look past their prime then play safe and paint them white. Think about the lighting in a room because this can enhance or detract from its overall design.
Have you ever tried to install a set of shelves only to find that the brackets get in the way? No matter how you change it around, you just cant seem to get it right. There is a type of shelving that can help you avoid this problem altogether, they are called floating shelves.
Ceiling light fixtures are great for starters, but when it comes to setting a specific ambiance, they do not quite do the trick. They leave unwanted dark corners and unflattering shades on decorations. Table fixtures with shades are still popular, but overall, they are quite impractical. A floor lamp is easier to clean, has a better throw of light, and casts the most flattering shadows for the room.
