Decorating your brand new Miller & Smith home is going to the highlight of moving in. But with that being said, there are always certain spots of a home that are perfect for adding some unique décor, but are often forgotten about. Regardless of when your family will be moving in, it is never too soon to plan the layout of decorations and accessories for your home! Check out some of our ideas to give the forgotten spots in your home some TLC:
Corners: These tricky spots in your new home are the perfect opportunity to add a little something extra to a room. Take advantage of these angles with a cool sectional, unique floor lamp, or custom shelving unit to fit perfectly in the corners of your home.
Outdoor spaces: Many homeowners think of an outdoor space as more of a functional space than a fashionable one, but it’s time to think again! There are so many options out there for stylish outdoor furniture and accessories, like the modern patio space seen below in the Hartwood at Embrey Mill.
Windows: The most obvious way to decorate windows is with window treatments, such as curtains or blinds. Instead of neutral or solid colored curtains, utilize window treatments to create a bold statement in a space with an interesting pattern. Another way to dress your windows up is to extend the windowsill into the room with a narrow console table, which can be accessorized with other items.
The staircase: Just because we don’t see the walls above a staircase often, doesn’t mean they can’t be decorated! Create a gallery of wall hangings or a hidden accent wall that will create a better flow from one level of your home to the next.
Hallways: Another forgotten space in many homes, hallways are the best place to add an accent piece that wouldn’t otherwise fit the style of one specific room in your home. Take some cues from the Calahan at Aspen North at Lake Linganore with a skinny table along the wall, or mirrors to create depth in the space.
Bathrooms: It seems silly to decorate a bathroom with pretty paintings or vases, but these small touches can actually create an even more relaxing space!
Kitchen spaces: Although cabinets and shelves in your kitchen serve a purpose, there is no reason they can’t be accessorized strategically to fit the style of your home. Take a look in the photo below at how the kitchen in our Silverton model home at Aspen North displays items that color coordinate with the rest of the décor in the main level of the home.
