Home Decor FAQs



To coordinate your home decor, start by choosing a theme or style. The furniture you have for the space you’re coordinating may help inform the theme. For example, if you have sleek modern furniture, a country cottage theme may not be the best fit but an industrial theme could work well.


Some styles to choose from include traditional, rustic, modern, glam, coastal, bohemian and contemporary; however, there are many more. Naming your style can help you stay on track when you’re shopping so you can consider items with your theme in mind. You might love a set of traditional vases but when you remember your theme is Southwestern, it can be a reminder to look for something else more aligned with your style.


You’ll also need to choose a base color and create a color palette for your theme, perhaps focusing on pastels, jewel tones, neutrals, etc. Select a few different materials to round out your style and colors – that’s really all you need to coordinate your home decor! Identifying these three elements will help you pick accessories that you know will work well for the aesthetic you want.

 

 

 

If you’re at a loss when it comes to choosing your home decor style, don’t despair! There are so many cute decorations to choose from that it can be overwhelming. All you need is some inspiration to define your style.


Start by getting on Pinterest, making boards for specific rooms and pinning decor items and interiors you find appealing. You can also do this the old-fashioned way with home and decor magazines. Next, take stock of what you already have and assess what you love and want to keep and what you’d rather part with.


You should start to see some similarities emerging from the images you’ve curated and the process of evaluating your existing decor. It could be that you gravitate towards warm tones versus cool tones, or that you like the look of minimalism instead of ornate decorations.


Between these two steps, you should now have a decent idea of the style you find appealing. You can read up on different decor styles and decide which ones you think define your personal style. And yes, you can have more than one home decor style! For example, you might find that a mix of modern and coastal is what speaks to you, so your style is modern coastal. Now you can go forward and decorate your home with confidence!

 

 

 

On a budget? You’ve come to the right place! Decorating on a budget is all about investing in key pieces that make a large impact and incorporating anything that can do double duty.


Begin by setting a budget for each room and creating a wish list of home decor accessories. Within that wish list, identify the pieces that will be most prominent and focus on getting those first. These could be things like curtains, rugs, lamps or throw pillows, all of which add functionality and can be found for amazing prices at Bob’s Discount Furniture.


Also consider any DIY projects you can do to improve your home decor. Painting and repurposing things around the house can work wonders!


Keep in mind that you don’t have to do everything all at once. Get those curtains up now and maybe the rug can wait. Add in smaller pieces to round out your space over time. Go room by room if you need to. It might take you longer to decorate on a budget, but that will give you time to truly invest in pieces you love for a result you can live with for years to come.

Every room in your home will benefit from decorative accents. The key is to create vignettes in each room. Look for empty surface spaces and blank walls where you can add points of interest.


Think about the different large and small tables, shelves, dressers and countertops throughout your home and assess which could use some decorations and which you prefer to leave open. Remember that you don’t need to overwhelm your space with tons of accessories and less is often more, so that end table may only need a lamp rather than five different knickknacks. Group items by odd numbers of three or five, incorporate different heights and then take a step back to see how they look. Don’t be afraid to edit and take things out.


The same is true for your walls. Take a look around and see where you can add wall art, while still leaving space so the room doesn’t feel overwhelmed with stuff. For your walls, proportion is especially important. A tiny, framed print on a huge open wall will probably not achieve the look you had in mind. However, if you group five small frames together, they can match the size of one large frame for more of an impact.
