Achieving your perfect home
If you’re lucky enough to own the home you currently live in, or indeed if it’s as good as yours while you work your way towards paying it off, then you really have it made because you have the greatest ingredient which can ever go into achieving your perfect home, which is of course TIME! However, even if you’re renting, whether short term or long term, there is a set of guidelines which you should follow if you want to perfect your living space to your own taste. The key is indeed to identify your unique taste and in this post I’m going to show you that it doesn’t have to be a cut and dried undertaking.
The ultimate destination (home) is comfort
If you visit a five-star hotel and marvel at the decor and commercial-grade cleanliness, it makes for a nice change to having to be the one who is in charge of taking care of things around the house, doesn’t it? However, as sterile as a hotel may be, with what can sometimes even be some tacky ornaments and styling, at some point you want to return home and enjoy the comfort that comes with your living environment, don’t you?
So that’s what should guide your decoration and styling decisions – comfort over pure style. For instance, glass tables might look great in the living room, but with toddlers running around do you want to risk injuries and expensive breakages? And, at the same time, while you may want to use nursery wall decals in a room for a newborn, pictures of teddy bears would look strange in a more communal space. When trying to find the balance between comfort and style, it’s always safer to edge towards comfort, but always try to keep your vision for your perfect home in mind when making decorating decisions.
So comfort over style should guide your buying decisions
Granted, you do indeed have some kind of styling profile which you want your home to follow and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. As a result, elements of that style can dominate at face value, but ultimately you still want to make purchases and have work done with comfort guiding you over style.
No guest is ever going to have legitimate grounds to step into your master bedroom, for instance, so what if some of the best-looking beds which sacrifice style over comfort are placed in the guestroom, whereas in your master bedroom where you sleep the bed doesn’t look like one fit for a hotel, but is as comfortable as beds get?
The guest bedroom must be comfortable enough for guests to stay over for one or two nights only, in any case, but this is where you can go crazy with the design and styling. Like making a conservatory style guest bedroom! You can consult roof conversion specialists like Projects 4 Roofing to know if such an extension is possible for your house.
However, it also depends where you source your upholstery, furniture, ornaments, etc. The range of beds from Bed Guru for example won’t have you needing to choose between design/styling and comfort. You can have both and there are even some bespoke options to pursue if needs be.
It’s a dynamic process
Ultimately though, achieving your perfect home is a dynamic exercise. In other words, some decoration and even contract work doesn’t have to be final and permanent, but can rather change with the seasons or in line with any trends which you’re likely to be aligned to as time rolls by. That’s why the typical domestic living space evolves with time and never looks like it looked when you first took up occupancy of it.
