We’re all a little bit weird. It’s quite okay to admit that. After all, if we weren’t weird, what would we be? Totally normal? Who on earth would want that? We must admit, that sounds terrible. That said, the price we do pay for being a little weird is, left unchecked, becoming very weird. For this reason, it can be healthy to have norms to keep us in check, and while this sounds like a strange topic to start a post with, it really does relate to how we personally curate our home design.
Many new homeowners are often all too interested in designing their home in a way they’d like – that is after the desire to treat our space like an IKEA showroom passes after a while, and we become more confident in our design skills. This need not be a process engaged in by young homeowners either, as those who have just seen their child fly the nest might also wish to rest on indulgent efforts. But what are those, and how can we justify finally applying our most liberal tastes? Let’s consider that:
Form Can Have Function
Many people believe that form and function are separated as if to have a working home implement it must be as ugly as possible in order to acheive practicality. Of course, there is some light truth to this. Many of us have seen designer’s run amok in many fields, from experimental music to art to filmmaking, and it can leave your head spinning. Not many of us want that same impression in our homes. That said – form can have a function. Just make sure they’re balanced. A beautiful netted design for a bed holder, or confident and bright colors, or interesting artwork – if it helps curate the room you intend, and you can use it, that’s a great place to start.
Maintenance Access Is All You Need
As long as your home is available to be well-maintained, and that its functions aren’t blocked by your larger-than-life designs, you’re pretty much good to go. Provided 24 hour air conditioning repair services can easily access your unit, and that you make proper use of fire safety recommendations and protocols, and that your plumbing is accessible, you can justify even outlandish design principles.
The Layout Is Worth Considering
It’s worth considering the layout of your home as appropriate. This can help you measure all of your enjoyable and weird additions without having to impede on how you actually navigate around the room – or how well you can breathe in there. Perhaps you want that outlandish and strange coffee table made from reclaimed wood from an interesting source. That’s cool. Can you still walk around it easily? If so, that’s great. You can add furniture of your choice provided it doesn’t harm your natural light levels or causes a fire hazard. Keep that in mind, and your layout will provide the grounding principles of your design.
With this advice, we hope you can enjoy the best and most indulgent home.
