Where to start.You have several decisions to make when you are decorating old homes. Take plenty of time to think about how you would like the house to look; this includes what upgrades that you may need to make in order to incorporate all of the decorating ideas into your home. Take into consideration that the homes electrical wiring may not be updated to safe standards. Before upgrading your modern appliances, personal electronics and new light fixtures, have the electrical system inspected to make sure that your electrical wiring can handle the full electrical load. Also have the plumbing inspected before attempting to install new water heaters, dishwashers, washing machines, or upgrade bathrooms.
Decorating ideas. You can choose to decorate according to the era of the home, using vintage paint colours, fabric patterns, furnishings and accessories. A great place to get vintage ideas is from magazines and photos of historical era homes. You may opt for a vintage look combined with a modern twist, particularly for the convenience of a modern kitchen and bathroom facilities. You can also use period furniture pieces, and dress them in modern fabrics and colour schemes. Another choice is to simply choose a favourite piece of furniture, or a favourite colour and build your decorating scheme from there. Remember that if you are decorating a large home with big rooms, your major furniture pieces need to be to scale within the size of the room, and then you can accessorise with smaller pieces within the remaining space. If you intend to use furnishings and décor from a previous home, you will need to see how they look and fit in the older house. If they are to scale and the style complements the older house, then add fresh paint and fabric to match your new colour scheme to draw everything together as a coordinated whole.
Most importantly, a nursery needs to be designed with safety as the first priority. Ensure that electrical outlets are baby proof and that nothing in the room could cause a safety hazard to the child. The specific design of the room will depend on the age and sex of the child; however, common themes can include sports, princesses, dancing, vehicles and more.
Moroccan decor should not just be limited to certain rooms in your home. Why not give your kitchen and bathroom a Moroccan makeover as well? Exquisite mirrors can be used in the bathroom for a fabulous focal point, and you can find many Moroccan home decor accessories intended for bathroom use. Moroccan tiles can be used to create mosaic patterns on the floors and other surfaces in the bathroom and kitchen for a unique and stunning look that you will love every time you see it.
