How to Determine Your Home Decorating Style

After moving into your home, you can feel overwhelmed when it comes time to decorate it. If you don’t decorate it right, it may not feel like your own. So, it’s important to choose a style that you feel comfortable in and that you can call “home.” But, it’s not always easy to know which style best suits your wants and needs. We’ll help you determine a few factors in finding your perfect house decorating style!

First, take a look at the style of the home itself. Is it a Victorian, a Craftsman, a Bungalow, a Beach House or Modern? Although we’ve only named a few, there are several home styles out there that could influence how you decorate the inside. If you live in a modern home, you probably chose it for a reason. Which means you shouldn’t decorate in a more traditional style. Another example: if you live in a high-rise apartment in New York City, it might feel weird to decorate with beach decor. So, take a look at why you chose the style of your home and bring it inside.

Next, take a look at the items you already own. What type of materials and objects do you gravitate toward? Do you like to shop in antique stores or second-hand shops? Or do you like all of your items to be new and have you as their only owner? Determining the style of your “stuff” can help you determine the style that your house should be decorated in.

Last, what type of artwork moves you? If you go to a museum, are you stopping to look at Monet or do you want to look at modern art? Taking a look at various art resources can greatly help you determine what overall style you want in your life.

Decorating a home can be stressful and difficult. But, once you know HOW you want to decorate, it becomes a million times easier. If you need any further help in determining your style, we’ve found a few quizzes that can help:
