Pittsburgh new home

Most of us generally evaluate by things by sight and appearance. Our homes are no different. The style of your Pittsburgh custom home is more than just design. It describes your personal style, so it important to think what is the best way to set up your home that shows who you are.   Here are some tips that can be used to show your new Parry home at its best.

When selecting a paint color for the rooms of your new home, don’t forget the ceiling. It may seem a little unconventional to you to paint your ceiling anything but white, but today the ceilings are being treated as a fifth wall. Go two to three shades lighter or darker than the color you choose for your walls. This brings warmth to the room of your home and once you see a difference it makes in the room, you will never have white ceilings again.

To add personality to the room of your home, add good art pieces. You may not have invested in good art pieces before, but you will be surprised at how it can transform a room. A beautiful painting is something that can add color and life to any room.

To make the rooms of your new feel spacious, don’t overload the room with furniture. Choose the appropriate size of furniture for the room. Same goes for the bedrooms, makes sure that the beds aren’t too large for the space. This only makes the room appear smaller and takes away the space next to the bed for side tables. If you are not sure on what furniture would work best in your home, you can use resources like online layout apps or websites. You can also make it easy and hire an interior designer to help you come up with a game plan for the furniture in your room. Many furniture stores now have an on-staff interior designer that can help you make the best selections for your new home.

If you have children, consider slipcovers to protect your furniture. Slipcovers have come a long way in style and fit, if you haven’t checked them out in a while. It also provides you with an opportunity to change design styles whenever you desire.

If you like the challenge of designing your own space in your home, then we hope these tips have been useful. If you need a second opinion, hire a professional who can help steer you in the right direction and style your for home exactly as you envision it!
