Decorating Your Home

Finding the perfect design for your kitchen can be great fun and a complete chore depending on your attitude to home decorating. Some of us are naturally drawn to the process of finding and choosing a new colour scheme and design, whereas others will naturally recoil from what seems like an onerous task comparing sample pots and colour swatches. Yet whatever your attitude to home decorating, one thing is certain: if you don’t spend the time researching what you want, it will cause you a lot more stress in the long run. Running all over town in search of that elusive, ineffable and altogether chimerical concatenation of colours is consternating, to put it mildly.

Finding the perfect design for your kitchen can be great fun and a complete chore depending on your attitude to home decorating. Some of us are naturally drawn to the process of finding and choosing a new colour scheme and design, whereas others will naturally recoil from what seems like an onerous task comparing sample pots and colour swatches. Yet whatever your attitude to home decorating, one thing is certain: if you don’t spend the time researching what you want, it will cause you a lot more stress in the long run. Running all over town in search of that elusive, ineffable and altogether chimerical concatenation of colours is consternating, to put it mildly.

But don’t despair: there is a way to deal with all that hassle without stress or undue worry. The most important thing is to have a process by which you can quickly and easily evaluate colours, styles and design elements. A series of style boards or an inspiration diary can be useful as it lets you collect ideas and samples over the course of a few months and helps you to decide what you want where and how. When it comes to redecoration, we often rush into things without deciding how best to organise the project and fully expect that despite a manifest lack of organisation, we will be able to tackle the problem quickly and easily. However, if you decide on a scheme that will allow you to comparmentalise all your design decisions into discreet and easy chunks of time, then tackling even the largest project will be a simple matter of moving from one decision to the next without having to worry about where it will fit in the grand scheme of things.

First off, it’s a good idea to spend some time thinking about what you don’t like about your current setup, so that you know which elements to change. It can often be the case that just a few design aspects ruin the entire balance of a room, so it may not be necessary to change the entire layout, just a few pieces. If, for example, you don’t like the contemporary style of your kitchen and are keen to have something more cost and traditional, then it’s a lot easier to replace cabinet doors and wallpaper than pay for a fundamental redesign of the entire kitchen. Home accessories can be bought from quality designer labels such as Cath Kidston and Gisela Graham.
