Before we become committed couples ready to take the next step in the relationship and live together, maybe even getting married and crafting a home together, it’s likely that we get used to our own way of decorating our properties. When it comes to living with another, our home decors styles might clash, and we might begin needless arguments about whether that cactus is necessary as a perfect bedroom furnishing when you accidentally press that instead of your alarm clock three times a week. It might be worth sitting down with your partner and seeing where you can both eschew the negatives and increase the positives of a perfect fusing of your tastes.
It’s time to craft the perfect his/her space.
Find A Common Theme
Take the time to come to a theme that you both enjoy, and agree to both provide all new purchases within that theme. Make sure you are on the same page as soon as you start, and you’ll be on the right footing to continue. For example, you might choose that you’d like to ‘stay with light, airy colors,’ or ‘stay within a blue, mellow theme.’ Make it as general as you can for heightened success, and remember that the only way you can positively make progress is if you stick to this common ground.
Take Separate Rooms
Take responsibility for separate rooms. This will allow you to both stick within the theme, have your creative expression fully met, while also avoid any arguments or conflicts of discussion that might arise thanks to ‘needing that pillowcase’ or ‘wanting that exact duvet covering.’ If you both stick within the simple themes dictated by your plan, you will be able to find compatible aesthetics that not only look great, but they will improve the view of your room tenfold.
Buy Furniture Together
Furniture is a big consideration, and it takes time to come to the decision. Because of the size of the purchase, it’s best to take this task on together. Consider looking for bright, airy, modern and chic furniture that you can both agree improves the room, as opposed to some crazy unique piece that you find in some art deco shops.
Practicality and positive, clean aesthetic should be favored over strange taste in these instances. Consider checking out Joybird furniture, as there is a wide range to suit any taste available, as well as being widely likeable to the point where you’re both likely to agree on how well it could suit your home.
Craft A Positive Space
Remember, your home space says a lot about you, and your environment has a larger impact on your day to day happiness than you’d realise. Instead of opting for crazy or niche tastes, consider that now is the time to begin your life anew, and creating a new space is preferable to trying to replicate your old. Go for light colors, and plan the layout of the room so it feels bright, beautiful and lived-in. It’s the best way to go when crafting a home space worthy of envy.
These tips should help any couple feel at home with their styling tips.
