With careful planning and budgeting you can make your new house a heaven. Take a look at these unique strategies and see how they can inspire you.

Start From The Entrance

The main entrance has always been given the utmost importance. From your home’s exterior to its entrance doors, it is one of the first parts of a house that people come in contact with. Guests coming into your home should get a sense of your style and personality instantly from the entrance itself. Try to maximize the space without over cluttering. Decorating the gate / the door in your own way will provide you with a unique space that is easily memorable. Try adding a small table for resting, decor, and/or for placing flowers and accessories right at the front of your home. Additionally, you can also decorate the path or stairs leading to the front door with flower pots and other creative arrangements as well to suit your desires. 
You can even add a good quality entry rug with vibrant colors; then top that off with a bold wall color that can act as a focal point for the house. The front door provides a great opportunity for you to express your personal tastes and to grab the attention of everyone that enters. The main entrance of every home helps to reveal characteristics about the house and its owner. On the other hand, the entryway is the perfect place to showcase a bold painting or sculpture. Try utilizing the entrance area to add elegant decor that will help to create an overall ambiance in your home.

Lighting Fixtures As Decor Elements

One of the most infamous things that can destroy any elegant house design is bad lighting. Even if you are all set with a great interior, beautiful cabinets, furniture, wall coverings, and other decor elements – if you are not going to highlight the exclusive materials of the room with proper lighting, nobody is going to even notice the design. Actually, it is a work of art to cast appropriate lighting arrangement in your house. Try to become familiar know all types of lighting, and choose the one that brings out the different elements of your home the best. If this seems too hard to do you can always try looking for the help of an interior designer to handle everything from design and decor to lighting.
For self installation: you can begin to look at directional lighting, accent lighting, different tones, or natural lighting to bring attention to a specific focal point in your room. Even in some instances, before designing a home you can come up with a lighting plan for each room depending on the room’s functions. Then you can decide what lights would best aid in accomplish this function, and from there you can move onto deciding furnishings. Now, after all that is done, it’s time to focus on every detail in your room and how the lighting can play along with your design scheme and really bring it to life.
Going a step further, you can utilize different lighting decor in your home. Chandeliers, provide vintage glamour and elegance as well as ambient light; usually placed in the dining room, living room, or bedroom. Well-executed LED lights with dimmers can make major changes on the atmosphere of an entire home – at any given moment. Keep in mind that every room of a house is unique – look into some innovative lighting designs which can provide a new vibe on the entire feel of your home. Try showing your individual style through your lighting selection and remember there’s nothing wrong with playing on both traditional and modern lighting fixtures. Additionally, you can also add pendant lights, wall lights, vanity lights, track lights, landscape lighting and others as decor elements. Natural light is particularly important if you want to decorate the interiors with plants and other natural elements. The natural light will provide us with a bright and beautiful home interior. To achieve natural light, plan your home’s blueprints to incorporate large windows in every room of the house to help capture all the natural light of the day.

Bring The Outdoors Inside

All of us enjoy being surrounded by the beauty of nature. But being that we can’t fully live within the presence of nature – we should look at how we can incorporate the natural world into our homes. To start off small: place potted plants and fresh flowers in every room you deem fit; living room, bedroom, bathroom, etc.  Just make sure you mesh it well with your interior design scheme. If you want your house to stand out from the crowd use the natural materials such as stone or wood for some additional decor pieces or even as vases to really catch people’s attention.
Floors made of natural materials like bamboo, cork or wood stay warm and and have a grounding tendency that makes you feel closer to nature. Using natural products like wood, and other greenery is sure to make your indoors rich and alive with color, and texture. Collecting rocks and arranging them in a decorative vase with fresh flowers is another way to stand out from your neighbors. Creating a small interior garden will be a great idea to bring nature to your house, You can even try a natural living wall / vertical garden. You can also create ponds and water fountains to provide a little serenity and zen to your space as well. Nature is an attractive and  easily available decor item that you can place anywhere inside the house. These details, when incorporated correctly into your new home, will be prominently noticed by any house guest and add to the atmosphere of your home.
