Need some home decorating ideas?
I don’t know about you but I’m a visual person when it comes to learning and coming up with new ideas, especially for things like home decoration. I really need some visuals to help me figure out how I might want to add to a room, change it up a bit or do a major change. One of the best ways that works for me to get inspired for home decorating ideas is to go to a Home and Garden store.
I love the stores where I can walk the aisles and go from lamps and shades to kitchen countertops and flooring. Don’t get me started on the paint aisle, I can be there for hours looking at all of the color palettes and imagining what ones might go in what room, paint the walls, the trim or maybe freshen up a dresser. I love how the possibilities are endless!
Sometimes I’ve meandered throughout a Rona store for example thinking I would just pick up some paint and change up a piece of furniture and instead I come out with some plants to add to another room. Seeing the plants, paint colors, lamps, outdoor furniture and more just inspires my home decoration ideas.
I have friends who also do the same thing, especially those who write up home decoration. It’s really fun when we can each go to our local Rona store as they are across Canada and more times than not we can all find similar items. We then get together online and talk about our ideas and inspire each other. I’ve even uploaded pictures of an area of the house I wanted to change up and share it with them to give me ideas and would they think this lamp or this paint color would work. I told you I was visual lol.
It’s also really useful to see mock-ups for examples of kitchens. In fact that is also one of my favorite sections in a home and garden store. I love to get ideas for my dream kitchen that I’m determined to have one day. I love looking at the “mini kitchens” as I call them that they have set up in stores. So far from looking at those I’ve started my list for my dream kitchen, so far I’m leaning towards a country look with some hints of blue, vintage white-washed wood cupboards and marble counters.
So if you’re stuck for ideas and/or just need some inspiration just go to some local home and garden stores and walk around. You can look at carpets, wood floors, the paint section (even if you don’t need paint you can get color scheme ideas), plants & flowers, lighting and more and get some ideas. See what they have set up for the displays, get inspired and if you want bring a few samples home too! It always does wonders for me and plays a part in all my home decoration projects!
