Thoughts on Rearranging My Home
While I am shopping, I am often tempted to buy yet another decorative piece for my home. This mode of thought not only leaves me constantly wanting for the next available item but also leaves my wallet empty. The sad truth of the matter is that when I finally do succumb, my new treasure of a purchase all too often appears as clutter and ends up at my next yard sale. I have learned (slowly) that often the best solution to having a fresh change is to use what I already have. It doesn?t take a lot of effort, but I feel like I have a brand new look. It is the best of both worlds: I get the experience of interior decorating, and my bank account balance doesn?t go down a penny!
Using Hanging Plants as Interior D?cor
Hanging plants are a great way to decorate any home?be it a spacious house or a small dorm room. It is nice to have a good variety of plants in your home?different sizes and different placements make the whole area seem fresh and outdoorsy. Corners make some of the best places for hanging plants?there is hardly a better way to add color and a clean feeling to those areas of your rooms. Hanging plants placed in corners also stay out of the way. Using the right equipment as you hang your plants prevents you from having problems in the future. Some of the prettiest plants are larger and heaver; these require a metal hook attached directly to a ceiling beam. Smaller plants use smaller hooks, and can usually be placed anywhere. You have many choices available to you, so look around online or in gardening stores until you find something that fits your home. There are about as many artificial hanging plants as real ones, so do not feel limited in choice if you decide to have the ease of a silk plant.
How to Choose the Right Interior Decorator
Often, the best way to ensure that your home is beautifully decorated is to trust in a specialist. Since financing your decorator can be a task all of its own, we recommend you shop around before you choose one. It is a good idea to secure photographs, demonstrations, and the contact information of other customers before you agree to work with a specific decorator. Most professionals have samples of their work in one form or another that you can peruse through. When talking to others who have used this interior decorator, ask them about how timely, how inventive, and how serviceable he/she was. In this fashion you can weed out mediocre interior designers and assure that you have a proper professional interior design expert for your home.
