The first step in choosing a residential design in which you will be happy and comfortable is deciding what happy and comfortable look like to you. It is easier for most people to identify what makes them feel just right by looking at their favorite pieces of clothing.
Would you say you tend to toward lavish comfort or sharp impeccable aesthetics? Are you into bright energetic colors or do feel at home in muted tones and even monochromatic settings? DO you prefer the excitement of modern design or the nostalgia of retro appeal? Think of places you have been where the décor or atmosphere was especially appealing to you.

If you know that purple curtains remind you of a particularly unpleasant aunt or that minimalistic design gives you a bad back, don’t provoke needless suffering. Use these details to define your tastes.

One of the best ways to begin is with what is already working in your house and providing good results. By observing the functions and dynamics of the room, you can begin adding balance through opening up spaces for specific activates or breaking up the absolute symmetry of the room for a comfortable feel as opposed to a storage setting.
3. Sample Your Paint
If you hope to choose the best paint for your home, the one that really sets the tone and connects the spaces, you can’t expect to get it right the first time. First of all, the swatches you are given are helpful but until you see what the room looks like during the day and then at night, you aren’t going to know what to expect. The paint job alone can account for the greatest visual impact and special hues can be selected to add energy to the game room, tranquility for the upstairs corridors and bedroom or serenity to the living room and dining room.
