Ensure that your house boasts of a great first impression

This often paves way for the best first impression which usually continues until they see the last bit of your house. Paint your entrance door in vibrant and inviting colors. The entrance should look welcoming. You can decorate it with plants or laughing buddha figurines to create a very modern look.
Paint your walls in neutral and light shades
Often people paint their walls in dark shades or vibrant colors, which tend to create a negative impact after some time. Wall paint or wall paper is something one cannot change often when compared to accessories. The right thing would be to use light wall colors or neutral wall papers so that you can accessorize bright and then change your accessories when required.
Sofas and Cushions
A sofa set in the living room is often a space where the family spends most of their time unwinding, relaxing or even watching television together. Ensure that you invest in a good and comfortable sofa set that can be instantly accessories with dressy cushions when you have guests over. When you are at your own, you can always pack away the cushions and replace them with more casual ones. Also, ensure that your sofas and cushions match with the curtains, dining table and wall papers. Do not put mismatched furniture into your homes.
When designing your house, if possible, set it in such a way that you get ample sunshine into the house. Perhaps a balcony or window that brings in maximum sunlight into the house. This is good health wise and also Fengshui wise. This also ensures that you get a lot of natural light into the house. You can decorate your windows with sheer and dark drapes. The best ones are those made from linen, silk or cotton.
Put plenty of mirrors into your house, especially in your hall as it makes any small space look bigger. They also make a dull décor look brighter. Mirrors have the property of bouncing back light and make the room look bigger and spacious. But if you place mirrors at the wrong spot, it may affect you negatively. Mirrors should always be placed perpendicular to windows and never directly across.
Hang only those pieces of art that are really good. Also, never hang them up too high on the wall. The middle picture should be at the eye level. If you have a larger wall, the best bet is to go in for an oversized work of art to make the best use of the large space. The ideal way to put two pictures on a wall is to place them 2 to 4 inches apart only.
Every room should have three kinds of lighting – ambient, one that provides full illumination. This can come from ceiling fittings, task – this one can be put up on the head panel for reading and dressing light and accent – one that is used only for decorative purpose.
