The Basics of Interior Decoration


Human beings like birds take immeasurable pleasure in nest

building, it is vitally important in the scheme of life. Whether

starting from scratch, redesigning or copying a current design,

interior decorating offers a challenge, adventure and in most cases

excitement. There are no hard or fast rules when it comes to interior

design, every design decision is an opportunity not a problem.

There are 5 points to consider when designing your home, keep

reading and see the basics for interior decoration.




Planning does not only save you time and energy, it also stops you

from creating an expensive nightmare. To successfully create the

perfect pad to suit your personal style and comfort, create a plan that

encompasses the decorating job. From the elements of design, the

paint jobs and wall paper down to the accessories and furniture.




Amongst the many problems we have to battle in Nigeria, the heat

rays from the sun tops our list. The darker the color the hotter your

home; this necessitates the exclusion of dark colors while painting

the interior of a house. This doesn't stop you from using wall papers,

rugs, and works of art in dark shades to complement your paint job.

Pick out your favorite neutrals, make them the base colors for a

decor and you're good to go.




When making a plan for interior decoration, you must buy the

furniture and accessories together to create a line balance. If you

want large and comfortable seating at your home, you must reduce

the number of seats ordered to keep the scale balanced. The same

goes for the dining area and the bedrooms, the more the furniture,

the larger the scale, the lesser the balance.




Fabrics are very expressive, be it patterned or plain, colored or not.

Fabrics are pricey hence they must be chosen with caution, printed

fabrics for plain coated walls and plain fabrics for patterned wall

paper.  They can not only be the foundation of the design plan, the

can also provide the color scheme.




Color combinations can give a room character, be careful when

selecting the flooring category. When creating your plan, your

personal preference between wood, tile, stone, carpets etc would

determine the color and designs to be used on your walls, wall

paper, furniture and accessories.
