5 Home Decor Tips for Your New Home

Modern Living Room with Kitchen

When browsing for new homes in Ottawa, chances are, you visited a variety of model homes. While visiting model homes can help spark ideas and get your interior design juices flowing, if you’re like most people you don’t have a set home décor style. Maybe you like modern and contemporary or maybe you like pieces from classic to modern looks.

Since home décor can be quite expensive and laborious, take the time to really decide what you want your home to look like. It’s also important to consider if the home décor you choose is temporary or if it’s something you can see lasting for years.

Here are home décor tips to add long-lasting warmth to your new home.

  1. Stay Neutral

Colored walls definitely set a specific ambiance in a room, but who says you’re going to like the color in years from now? To minimize painting and re-painting your walls, it’s best to stick to neutral colors. Off-whites, beiges, creams, and greys are all great neutral colors that give you a clean palette to work with. These days, you can even find neutral blue and green colors!

  1. Embrace Pops of Color

For some, neutral colors can be quite boring. The good news is that it’s easy to add pops of color to your home. You can add color to any room with the use of:

  • Pillows
  • Window treatments
  • Rugs
  • Table decor
  • Wall decor

If you’re craving a bold pop of color, introduce an accent wall into your space.

  1. Hang Mirrors

All new condos in Ottawa should have a mirror in each room. Mirrors bounce light around the space, which can make the room look and feel brighter. Mirrors can be placed above a mantel or couch or on a large wall to fill in some of the empty space.

When hanging mirrors throughout your home, never put them directly across from windows. They should always be perpendicular.

  1. Let There Be Light

No matter how large or small your home is, natural light is one of the best ways to make any space feel open and airy. Be sure to choose window treatments that allow for plenty of sunlight to enter your home. Natural light is especially crucial if you want to make a small room look bigger.

Common options include sheer curtains, wood blinds, or even shutters!

  1. De-Clutter

After moving into your new home, odds are, you have all sorts of boxes and random items placed in random locations. To make the most out of your new living space, you want to de-clutter as much as possible. When unpacking bags and boxes, set aside any items that you know you no longer need.

Too much clutter eats up space and can make already small rooms look and feel cramped.
