Interior design is arguably one of the most fun parts of being a homeowner. Depending on how large your home is or what kind of lifestyle you live, you may have a lot to think about when it comes to decorating, and sometimes that can get a little overwhelming. Having themed rooms is a great way to narrow your focus so that things don’t get too complicated and you end up with several fun and functional spaces in your home that will make you happy every time you walk in!
Here are seven rooms in your home you should consider picking themes for.
Decorating kids’ rooms can also be very exciting. In some cases you will be decorating a room before they have even been born, which can be a bit of a challenge because you don’t know their gender or personality yet. This is why choosing a theme can be a good idea because it helps make decorating a little easier. Cars, dinosaurs, outer space, or animals, are all excellent ideas to make a kid’s room a happy and calming place to be.
The most important thing for any kitchen is that it’s functional. You’ll want to optimize your storage space so that everything has a place and you know where things are when you need them. This will make cooking and entertaining so much easier. But it’s also important for your kitchen to be a nice place to spend time, because it’s one of the rooms you’ll spend the most time in! Picking a theme or color scheme that is related to food or drink is a fun and quirky idea.
Bathrooms, while usually the smallest rooms in any home, are a joy to decorate. It’s common for people to choose a theme for their bathroom because it’s easy to stick to in a smaller space, and they make towels, rugs, and shower curtains in all types of colors and styles! A beach theme, a jungle theme, or just a simple black and white theme are all great jumping off points.
If you have a family room, game room, or even a man cave, it is a great place to go all out on a theme of your choice! If you are really into arcade games, for example, a room like this is the perfect place to showcase your games and all of your game-related art. It’s the best place to showcase your personality or some hobbies that you enjoy as a family, and you can put stuff in there that might look strange or out of place elsewhere in your home.
Your living room is likely one of the places in your home where you spend the most time, and it is an excellent place to showcase your great style and taste by putting a subtle theme to it. Be careful though, you may not want it to be as bright, wild, or wacky as a room that is smaller or used less often. Themes involving certain color schemes work well in living spaces, no matter what size room you are working with,
If you or your spouse has an office at home, you may think of it as a space that is only for work and therefore haven’t decorated it at all. But if it is a place you spend a lot of time working, all the more reason to turn it into a lovely area to be! Consider making it a ‘family vacation’ theme by covering the walls and corners of your desk in photos of your family on vacations so that whenever you are stuck in there working, you can be reminded of all the reasons you work so hard.
Porch Or Entryway
A porch may not classify as a room to some people, but it’s an important space because it is the first place people see when they come to your home. Plus, it’s a great place to spend time relaxing and rewinding, especially when the weather is nice. If you don’t have a porch, perhaps you have an entry way which serves as the spot where you welcome visitors into your home.
Think about decorating your porch or entryway in warm, comforting hues that will calm you or anyone else who enters your residence. You could even choose a theme for this area. Some ideas for themes include: love, family, farm, or something simple like a specific pattern you like.
Interior design doesn’t have to be complicated or stressful, and you don’t necessarily have to hire a professional to do it! Think about what types of themes would brighten your days and then choose a couple of them to inspire your home decor!
