Good room decorating ideas are not hard to find. I think that one of the biggest mistakes that we make when searching for ideas to make-over our rooms is that we don’t look inward first. I have found that some of my best decorating ideas have come from just closing my eyes and visualizing colors, designs, shapes, styles and even feelings. This way I am getting in touch with the room design that I relate to instead of letting someone else tell me what will work for me.
Once I have a vague picture or feeling of what I want my room to convey, I start searching for paints, materials, furniture, little trinkets and accessories to make my dream a reality. I draw up simple sketches, or organize pieces in my mind to test out a design before spending the money. If something doesn’t work, I rearrange it or rethink what I originally envisioned. I search for other peoples room decorating ideas that might add to my original ideas.
Decorating a room can be very exciting. It is a chance to express our inner artist and create a space that gives back to us every time we enter it. We have many ideas to share with each other, but I want to stress that the first step in room decoration is trying to find your personal vision, no matter if you succeed or not. An interior designer or other peoples room decorating ideas can always be consulted later. At least in the beginning, don’t throw out your opportunity to create. You will be much more satisfied in the long run with the finished product.
