5 Home Decor Essentials that You Should Have
A beautiful home not just depends on a great designer but also home decor essentials that allow you to rotate your spaces easily. I’ve collected 7 home decor staples that can turn your home into a perfect one! Today, I will focus on the Scandinavian and minimalist style on these decor items but there are some items that just fit everywhere.
1- Rug or Mats
A rug is just an essential home accessory for your bedroom or living room. It defines the zone or area with personality, style, and warmth. I’ve sorted out a few styles of rugs and a few tips on do’s and don’ts on placing the rugs. A tip for you that if you want a long-lasting rug, wool is a great choice.
Do’s: If you are trying to put a rug in the living room, make sure all the furniture is on top of the rug or the rug should sit under the front legs of the big furniture like a sofa and armchair.
Do’s: It’s the same case in the bedroom, and it should extend beyond the sides of the bed so that you won’t step on the cold hard floor in the morning.
Don’ts: Choose a small size rug because of pricing and make the space looks awful.
2- Wall Arts
Don’t waste your wall but decorating with art. Many designers agree that wall art is one of the important elements when it comes to interior design. The variety of wall art is more than what you think, photo frames, canvas print, calendar, fabric wall art, and etc. I’ve collected a list of wall art for you, take a look at them.
Do’s: Know well for your house design and look at the color of the furniture. For example, if your sofa is grey in color and you are a minimalist, then you can choose a white or beige as the dominant color for your wall art.
Don’ts: Hang it too high. Instead, keep your wall art at eye level.
Enhance your home lighting but placing a standing lamp, table lamp or decoration lamp.
I believe we always feel a lamp can give us comfort, warmth, and romance as it improves the ambiance of the space. Always remember to pick the right place for the lamp. In the living room, place the floor lamp at the side of the sofa or couch while in the bedroom, the right spot for the table lamp should be on the bedside table.
4- Aroma diffuser
A diffuser is normally used in diffusing essential oil into the air for aromatherapy purposes.It has a lot of benefits in its functions as well as decoration. An essential oil diffuser promotes sleep, reduces anxiety and purifies the air. Essential oil is completely different from perfume oil as essential oil helps in our wellbeing when we breathe in.
Do’s: Use the diffuser only with distilled water for our health.
Do’s: Place it away from the window, fan and direct sunlight.
Don’ts: Do not mix different essential oil together.
Storage boxes or baskets or even shelves are super important home decor for you to store and keep your stuff nicely. There is a list of storage and organization items, such as pegboard, storage box, storage container, open shelves, and etc.
