How to style a house into a dream home

Felt Pads by X-Protector

To make a house feel like home there's more than pulling a room together and transforming the features to make it functional and stylish. From lighting options to where to place furniture – there are so many elements to consider.

Remember it’s your own home. Your home is where you spend most of your time, so the space needs to reflect you.

Consider colours and fabrics. The third colour could be a highlight for cushions, lampshades or bed quilts. Three colours are always better than two – use these colours throughout the room.

Transform old to new. Maybe you can reupholster the old sofa to give it a new lease on life? Decide if you are someone who likes patterns or plain. Look at nature to see what colors go with what. For instance, pinks and reds with greens, orange with duck egg or yellows with grey and blues.

Size up the furniture. Most designers recommend that even small rooms should have one large piece. Even if it is a headboard in a bedroom. A balance of large and small pieces will create an appealing living space.

Take your time. Collect pieces when you come across them. Rather than settling for what’s available in stores or online at the time, you need something. The more time you take to add things to your house, your interior design knowledge will expand.

Order returnable samples. The test will see if you're still happy with them after a few days.

Be bold with paint ideas. There are no rules about painting door frames, skirting boards, and ceilings in white. In fact, painting the skirting the same color as the walls can help to make the room feel bigger.

The finishing touches are the fun bit. Lampshades, rugs, and cushions can make a huge difference. Even the colors on the spines of books on a bookshelf, a throw on the back of the sofa, or in a kitchen ceramic create opportunities for accents of color.

And the last detail - is a floor without scratchers. Please, never forget to use Felt Furniture Pads. This is so a small, but so important part of a real dream home. There is no noise and no damaged floor by furniture. Feel free to choose from our store what you need for each of your rooms!
