The house hunt is over, you’ve closed on your dream home, and now it’s time to decorate! Whether you’re a seasoned design enthusiast or a little more green when it comes to the craft, we’ve compiled four staple tips to adorn your abode with personal touches that rival the pros. Read on to learn how to customize your open-concept home.
Define Spaces with Area Rugs
Open-concept is among the most desired home layouts, but decorating can feel daunting because of all the surface area and lack of dividing walls. Define each space with area or accent rugs to help guide the eye and bring color and comfort to each room. An area rug warms the living space, while a runner accentuates the kitchen — and be sure to stick to a cohesive color scheme to tie it all together!
Mindful Furniture Placement
Without walls to keep you apart, gathering in a Reunion great room is effortless — but proper furniture placement will help transition each area with ease. Avoid positioning furniture against walls and instead lean on accent pieces like side tables and bookshelves to complete each space. Whether you refer to optimized angles, stylized arrangement guides, or feel the energy of feng shui, ensure your floorplan layout makes an impact with a little furniture rearranging.
Get Funky with Accent Walls
An accent wall creates a focal point and adds fun flair to open spaces. Choose the dining room backdrop, kitchen backsplash, or entry hall then spice it up with wallpaper, shiplap, or a bold paint color to evoke interest and incorporate personality. Some of our Oakwood Homes models even include accent walls to get you started!
Create Consistent Colors and Patterns
The beauty of open-concept? You can truly let your style shine! Decide which theme best reflects the personality of your home and integrate touches of it throughout. Not only will it be more streamlined and coordinated, but it can be seen from just about anywhere in the house. From paint shades to placemats, bring your vision to life with memorable trinkets and statement pieces.
