Decorating Ideas for Each Room in Your Home


From the entryway to the family room and the home office to the kitchen, we’re offering you decorating help for every room in your home.  Here, you can read about the basics of setting up a room to the little finishing touches that help to make a space a reflection of your personality.

Decorating Your Living Room

In many homes, living rooms fill a number of different functions, from being a formal entertaining space to where the whole family congregates to relax and unwind.  In modern homes, you may even find that an open floor plan means there is just one large space used for the living room, kitchen and dining area. 

One of the first things you will need to consider when decorating your living room is where you want the focal point of the room to be.  Your selection of sofas & living room furniture should keep this in mind. You’ll find that the furniture from The Place for Homes offers a variety of different design aesthetics, so you should be able to find some great pieces, regardless of your interior design preferences in their collection. 

Decorating a Bedroom

Did you know that you spend a third of your life in your bedroom?  This is why it’s important to create a space that is welcoming and restful.  While you may be able to save money by being savvy with some of your home furniture purchases, buying a good-quality mattress is always a good idea.  If you are a morning person, consider using a lighter hue to match your mood, or opt for a darker colour if you are a later riser. 

Designing Your Bathroom

Are you thinking about turning your master bathroom into an elegant spa?  If so, you will need to consider how to create a soft and sophisticated atmosphere.  This can be done with the right lighting, tiles and accessories. 

Kitchen Designs

Generally, kitchens can be an expensive room to redecorate, so you will definitely want to plan and consider your next kitchen update.  If you are looking for a fresh look but don’t want to invest a lot of money, something as simple as painting your kitchen cabinets can make a huge difference to the overall finish of your kitchen space.  Also, adding new lighting and new accessories can also change the look of your kitchen.

Dining Room Decorating

In most dining rooms, the table will be the centrepiece of the room, so you will need to consider the placement of your dining table carefully.  Other accents that you will need to think about carefully include your tableware and chairs.

Decorating a Home Office

If you are decorating a home office, you need this space to be comfortable and welcoming.  This space needs to inspire you, which is why it’s often useful to add a personal stamp to the design of this room.

Designing Your Entryway

In any home, the entryway should always be an inviting space that sets the tone for the rest of the house, but there are some practical things that you will need to consider, including flooring and storage options.
