Home is much more than a shelter; it contains the personal experiences of life. Be sure to make the most of it.

There comes a time in everyone’s life when the place called “home” needs its first adult makeover. This time is when “home” is no longer the dorm room or the college apartment shared with countless roommates. This time is also when the 4 year degree has been earned or dues have been paid at the entry level of a career. Even though the six figure income is still a dream, the place called home needs to reflect the adult that yearns to reveal itself. The time is now to take the leap from hand-me down furnishings and posters taped to the wall, to a home interior design that reflects the new professional adult.
If interior design feels like an exotic topic, then the first step is to buy home design books or magazines, to introduce one's self to various home styles. Start a file to include the desired interior wall colors, upholstery fabric designs, window covering ideas, furniture styles, and floor coverings that inspire from the design literature. This file will be a personal resource that will keep the project on tract. Personal design research should be thorough and unhurried. The next step is to become acquainted with the home décor and furnishing resources in the community. The resources should include the local vintage stores, charity stores, flea markets and garage sales as well the furniture and home décor shops. The objective is to acquire the furniture designs that will fulfill the current home design plan. Normally, a new home design will provide happiness for years if the right pieces have been selected. Refrain from visiting the local furniture store simply to take advantage of sale prices. It’s best to work out the new interior design with an idea file before spending any money. This type of project can be costly. But costs can be controlled by knowing what furniture designs and decor details are needed, as well as knowing the marketplace. Be certain the design details are appropriate for the home space. Exploring all the local resources is a valuable experience. Online resources are also valuable. KindaChic.com is an online home décor and furnishings website known for unique and stylish design ideas for the home.
Once the decision has been made to undergo an adult home makeover, but before the right furniture pieces have been found, the next step would be to choose the room colors. Whether the chosen hues are bold or pastel colors, think about living with these colors for a long time. If it’s too hard to paint a wall with a bold color, use this color in the room in another way, such as in the fabric of a chair, the carpet or the window coverings. Or, paint the room a lighter shade first to see the effect of this color in the room. Color will be affected by the quantity and quality of the natural light that comes in. Better still; try the bold color on one wall only. If the room is small, color on one wall maybe suitable for the new interior design. Try different color combinations in different rooms. The new furnishings will enhance the wall color so don’t be too critical at the start.
An important part of a home is the artwork that is displayed and reveals a person’s interests and esthetics. Sculpture and paintings will bring life to every room. As with exploring furniture designs, take the time to get to know the world of art to further develop a sense of aesthetics. “Art” does not have to mean expensive or represent the latest fad/trend. Rather, find the art pieces that represent a personal, favorite idea, or that evokes a welcome memory or emotion. The artwork will be the personal expression of the home.
Capture early adulthood in the interior design of the home. Home is the one personal space an individual has in the world. Home is much more than a shelter; it contains the personal experiences of life. Be sure to make the most of it.
