Decorating / Redecorating a Home: Before Picking Up a Paintbrush

Redecorating a house is one of the best ways to give your home a personal touch, especially if you’ve just moved in to a well-used location and have to deal with everything the previous owner left behind. However, there are a number of things that every homeowner should keep in mind before ever picking up a paintbrush.

With the proliferation of printing services (and similar businesses), it’s easier than ever before to get decorations that match your taste… But that doesn’t mean your favorite art is actually going to look good on a wall. Colors can clash, so if you plan to decorate your home with art that suits your tastes, you need to keep in mind the background color and how well it will support the particular work you want to hang. This gets even more complicated if you have multiple works you’d like to hang, all of which have different color designs.

One way of mitigating this problem is the use of neutral frames around the art (if possible). While not always appropriate, it does allow for a universal background color that won’t directly clash with the art in question. In fact, when this is done effectively, it can be one of the most effective ways of highlighting your art and drawing eyes to them.

However, maybe you prefer to decorate a little more frequently than that. Many households change themselves with the seasons or holidays, and it requires a very specific type of home to be able to pull that off effectively. The best thing you can do is make an interior that’s as neutral as possible. Gray may seem like a drab and dull color, but it’s actually one of the most effective tools for highlighting decorations and other components within your rooms. Using the right combination of basic backgrounds and vivid highlights can really help to change the feel of your home. More importantly, it should let you change your decorations and hangings on a regular basis without the need for expensive paint jobs.

Decorating isn’t always the easiest task, but a thorough understanding of how it actually works can ensure that you’re always able to decorate according to your tastes and have it turn out as something people actually want to live in.
