It’s evening time and Mrs. Chotani is back from the office a little early. That leaves her with enough time to follow some of her hobbies or read the latest bestseller before the children are back from their tennis practice.
However, she is still slumping on the sofa and doesn’t feel up to it. Not because it was a tough, stressful day at the office. Instead, it was a breeze.
Why is it so?
The home decor experts at Saya builders opine that it has got to do a lot with vibes that your home emits. Your home is your personal space where you should find your solace, comfort, and energy.

So here are 5 ways to decorate/re-doctorate your house with some inspiring ideas to ensure a happier atmosphere:
#1 Scheme up with right colors
There is absolutely no doubt that colors impact your emotions in more ways than one. Firstly, they enhance your mood and cater to your different emotions.

If time and resources are a constraint, you can always place objects of the desired color scheme in the line of sight to bring about the impact.
#2 When your home loves you back
When you decorate your home, it’s always a good idea to make it inviting for everyone. More importantly for the people living inside it. The line of sight, a walkthrough map of your home and understanding the usage of the area will help you plan it better. Start from the hallway and don’t forget to decorate even the washroom. Have a happiness quote chalkboard on the door which you can change at regular intervals. Hang some paintings or artifacts with happy and welcoming gestures on the passage to different rooms of your house. Make the kitchen a fresh and inviting place with a kitchen garden and more natural light to pass through. There are innumerable ideas. Go ahead, discover your own.
#3 Function. Function. Function.
Form follows function. That’s one of the golden rules for decoration. Ensure you place decorative objects keeping in mind the functionality of the area. A clutter-free space will help. Don’t stuff your living hall with many items. It’s where you relax, move around and have more people inside your home. Ensure good storage space for your outdoor articles so that the entrance is clean. Go for hooks, a shoe rack, and baskets at dedicated places for things that are bound to be lost most of the time or need easy access to. Have tiny mirrors at places where you need to bring an impression of more space.
#4 Let there be light!
Understanding light is a very important part of your overall home decoration ideas. Place your lights in ways to highlight a painting. Or to transform the look of a particular corner of the house that makes you feel depressed. Again, function comes handy to help you decide better. For instance, excess sunlight during daytime is good when your children are engaged in a craft activity. But when it comes to watching the latest blockbuster on TV, you need just a hint of the daylight. Solve it with another layer of translucent curtains to control natural light as per your need. Make the color of the light bulb an important part of the overall scheme of things. Like going for warm white light in dining and living areas and natural colder white light for the kitchen and bathroom.
#5 Decoration Inside outside
A lot of times people mistake interior decoration as a matter of designing spaces inside the four walls. Sometimes it’s also about controlling the view outside your window or when you open your door to step out. For instance, if the window view leads to an unpleasant view, shade it up with palm tree plants outside. If it’s always a view of an open sky, hang a coconut fiber little birds nest outside to extend that feeling of being a family. It will also be a great learning for children for witnessing nature up close and personal. Don’t forget to add outdoor window shelves to keep potted plants not only help add to overall mood but also help you be part of the season outside. Chic curtains and wooden/cast iron grill gives a different feel to your view.
These are some of the many approaches that help Saya builders design living spaces for discerning customers. So when you set out to decorate your home, you can try many different approaches that suit you and your family the most. Don’t be under the pressure to be perfect. Dedicate a slot for decoration so that it doesn’t intervene with the most important part of life. That of living it!
