Don’t Be Selfish: Share Your Decor

It’s a commonly accepted truth that your decor is an extension of your personality. However, while it may be easy to define yourself through your decor when you live by yourself, it’s a different kettle of fish in your family home. Ultimately, it is true that most decorative and stylish improvements tend to be left to one person in the household, and without wanting to make this statement a cliché, it is often left to the responsibility of a woman – however, not always, and there are some incredibly creative husbands out there who create amazing interiors too. It’s time that these single decor perspectives change. If you want people to feel at home too, you need to transform your approach to interior. It’s not just about your personality anymore. You need to create a melting pot of styles and tastes to meet the expectations of your family, and your guests too!


It’s not just YOUR decor

Did you know that the most common reason for arguments when couples move in together is the home decor? In fact, it’s not uncommon to have a different opinions about interior design. But it doesn’t mean that you have the right to push your way through. In fact, you need to learn to compromise by discussing together what you like and dislike. There will be a common area which you can use to define your theme for the home decor. You don’t need to keep it between adults. If you have kids, now is the best time to get them involved. After all, you don’t live alone at home, so you need to make sure that everybody is happy with it.

Share your ideas with your family



Everyone needs a luxury

Families who can work happily together in creating a home for all tend to give everyone one decor luxury. For example, if you have children, you could suggest getting a slide in the garden, or maybe letting them decide over the decor of their bedroom. As for your partner, why not letting him convert the basement into a man cave, or putting green installation in the garden to practice his swing? Ultimately, if everyone has one area in the house that has been specifically designed for them, you will find it easier to compromise on a common decor. But not without defining what your luxury should be! Should you get a jacuzzi bathtub to relax at the end of a long day? Or do you want an island in the kitchen?

Last, but not least, your home doesn’t only need to feel right for your family. It should be welcoming for guests too, which means that you need to consider their needs in your interior style. l It doesn’t take much to create a guest-friendly ambiance, though. You can use natural fragrances to keep the house feeling nice; a fresh bunch of flowers in a vase generally does the trick! Keeping a clean and decluttered home make also a great deal of difference.


The bottom line is that your home is a place where everyone should feel at ease. Consequently, you need to find ways to compromise on the interior decor to create a welcoming and loving nest.
