If you have recently built a new home, you no doubt want to start decorating that home as soon as possible. However, with so many styles to choose from, how do you know which decor style suits you best? If you want to create a home environment that will align with your personality (and wow your guests), here are some tips for pinpointing your own, unique decorating style.
Take an Online Quiz
Online quizzes, such as those that can be found in this article, 7 Amazing Quizzes that Will Reveal Your Decorating Style, are a great way to learn a little bit more about what you like and what you don’t. In addition to this being an effective method of discovering your style, it is also completely free!
Attend Open Houses
One way to get some great ideas for your own home is to attend the open houses of others. Open houses are typically decorated in a manner designed to be attractive, and you may be able to get some great ideas from professional designers who set them up. No open houses near you? Head to your local home interior and decoration store and take a look around.
Talk to Your Friends
Have a friend with a great home or a great sense of style that also knows you well? Turn to them for advice when pinpointing your own decorating style. Better yet, ask a friend, or a friend of a friend, if you can take a tour of their home and talk ideas!
There are dozens of different home decorating style websites, and home decorating how-tos, online. For example, sites like Pinterest are great for getting ideas for cheap home decor projects, and Good Housekeeping constantly provides ideas, such as these 50+ ideas for inspiring living room decor.
Hire an Interior Decorator/Designer
You may want to consider working with an interior decorator/designer. While hiring a professional to help you fill and decorate your home is a more expensive option, interior decorators are experts in their field and can make a big difference.
Attend a Home Decor Trade Show
Still out of ideas? Think about attending a home decor trade show. A home decor trade show is an affordable way to learn about the latest and greatest styles, meet home decor professionals, and potentially even gather the materials that you need for your own home decor project.
If you are thinking about building a new home, how you’ll decorate it is the last thing you should worry about. Instead, focus on finding an affordable home with a layout and floor plan that you love, in a neighborhood where you’re comfortable.
