Home furnishings are the products that make a house a home; they include
furniture and accessories as well as window treatments and home decor
items. Perhaps you have purchased a new home or are redecorating
your current residence. Whatever the case, designing your home's
interior and selecting suitable home furnishings can be an interesting
and exciting project.
The first order of business is to set your home furnishings budget.
Then decide what interior decorating style you prefer, such as modern,
traditional, or craftsman. Select furnishings from the category you
like best. Choose the overall color scheme you want, starting with
your paint colors. Then select wallpaper, if applicable, and the
fabrics for soft furnishings or window treatments that coordinate with
the paint color scheme. Consider your furniture requirements, and
plan your room layout and furniture arrangement. Choose
area rugs or
as well as lighting and pictures to achieve the ambience you desire
for your room.
It's best to work in a practical order. Paint and wallpaper the
ceilings and walls first, then install wired lighting fixtures and fans,
and thirdly install floor coverings. It's often easier to hang
window treatments before putting large furniture in place. Lastly,
hang pictures and locate smaller decorative items in the room.
