In search of an inexpensive housewarming gift? Are you planning to give home accessories for friends who are about to tie the knot? If you’ve begun to realize that the new ceiling fan you’ve just bought for your neighbor appears to be a prime candidate for regifting, we’re here to provide some cheap home decoration gift ideas which may just be worth your while.

Table Accents

Tables offer great flexibility when it comes to decorating. For dining tables, metal fruit baskets and wicker bread trays are excellent storage accessories that offer great decorative value. Pillar candle holders and cheap glass vases are excellent for coffee tables and consoles in living rooms and lobbies. The list for unique yet inexpensive table accents can go on and on. As with any room interior, the key is to match your décor with current furniture theme.

Wall Decorations

In lieu of expensive paintings, items like wrought iron decorations and full sized mirrors offer practical alternatives for both traditional and contemporary room designs. Sandstone wall decorations make great accents for both modern living room interiors and Asian garden themes. For contemporary walls, you may want to try to infuse a bit of African art by hanging decorative tribal masks.

Storage Accessories

Though your friends’ clutter free home may appear to be wondrous sight at first, they will eventually find the need to organize at one point or another. Every home always has room for a new wall mounted shelf. Chest drawers and metal magazine racks rarely ever outrun their use. Corner racks are cheap home accessories that are often assured of a space in kitchens and living rooms.

Traditional and Antique Décor

Though the terms traditional and antique connote ideas of elegance and luxury, you’ll be surprised of the number of ways you help spruce of your friend’s Victorian room theme without going beyond your budget. Resin vases and sculptures are steadily gaining popularity because of two key factors, “beauty and affordability”. As one of the most versatile synthetic substances today, resin can be fabricated to replicate the texture of wood or metal in any shape or form imaginable. When used as decorative fixtures or furniture, the difference between resin and wood is often hardly discernable.

Home Decor – Show your Unique Taste and Talent

Home Decor – Show your Unique Taste and Talent

Article by Tess Tackett

Some people have a knack when it comes to home decor. They can throw just about anything up on the walls, and it looks great! With so many home decor styles to choose from, there must be something all of us can do to make our homes unique and beautiful.

Let’s take shabby chic decor. It’s so charming and relaxing, the perfect decor for the home of a true southern belle. The romantic style of shabby chic lends itself to the relaxed, unpretentious personality. Can you paint? If so, this may be the perfect home decor for you.

In shabby chic decor, most furniture and accents are worn looking, with a distressed finish. Put a light coat of white paint on a few picture frames, an end table, or a rocking chair. Sand lightly, until the finish looks a little worn. You’ve just added a personal touch to your unique style of home decor!

Love country decor? This is one of the most loved styles, especially in the south. People are absolutely crazy about roosters, sunflowers – anything with lots of warm colors. Country decor is so warm and welcoming, especially in the kitchen. This is actually my favorite style of home decor (and I am from the south, I’ll admit).

When decorating with country decor, lots of wood really adds to the look. Pine wood floors are especially gorgeous, with the glowing reflection of everything in the room. Want to add your own personal touch to country decor? Crochet a few doilles, build a country style wall shelf to hold some of your knick knacks. Add your personal touch to your own home decor!

If western decor is your favorite, this one’s easy. You love horses, cowboy decor, horseshoes, everything western. A big Texas star hanging on the wall, metal wall decor and candleholders in western shapes such as horses or horseshoes. A campfire cowboy figurine setting on the coffee table, along with some old western book favorites.

Western decor is a popular home decor style in many states like Texas, Wyoming and Montana. Big open spaces is what western is all about. To add your own personal touch to western decor, go outside! Find an old wagon wheel, some old horseshoes, some rope – and make something unique to add to your home decor! Use your imagination.

There are many other styles of home decor, too many to mention. But you get the point. Everyones style is unique and different, and each person likes their own thing. Whatever you love – country decor, shabby chic decor, western decor or something altogether different, make it your own! Add your own distinct touch to your style of home decor.

Coffee Shop Design: Aim for Chic Style and Relaxing Ambience

Coffee Shop Design: Aim for Chic Style and Relaxing Ambience

Article by Jessica Ackerman

As we all know, a coffee shop is a trendy place to unwind and relax. For this reason, it is important that you are able to design your place stylishly and in such a way that will enable customers to do just that.

From the color and theme to accents like fleur de list artwork, this coffee shop decoration guide will give you lots of practical tips you need to make your place stylish, chic and comfortable all at the same time.

Coffee Shop Design Tip 1

Decide on the color and theme. First, you decide on the theme of the coffee shop. It can be contemporary, traditional, rustic, urban, or whatever you can think of. Next, you choose the color of the whole place including the walls, ceiling, flooring and furniture. Color must blend with the theme of the coffee shop. For example, if your theme is rustic, then earthy colors is the ideal option.

Moreover, choose a color that will provide a relaxing ambience. This means that bright and neon colors are out of the question. Choosing neutral and light shades especially brown, green, and gray tones is usually the way to go for the walls, floor, and ceiling.

As with the furniture, you can add in furniture of warm or cool tones just as long as they blend well with the overall color of the place. It is not a good idea to paint your coffee shop blue because blue is known to be the least appetizing color and you surely do not want your customers to lose an appetite when dining in your place.

Coffee Shop Design Tip 2

Consider the flow of traffic. Furniture and coffee shop equipment should be arranged in such a way that will allow people to move and walk freely around. This is not only for the customers’ sake but also for your staff. It would be easier to give efficient service if there is ample space to move around.

Coffee Shop Design Tip 3

Be smart in choosing furniture. As mentioned earlier, furniture should complement the theme and color of the coffee shop. If your place has a modern urban theme, you should go for metal furniture with black and red shades. Now if your coffee shop has a traditional or rustic look, wooden tables and chairs will be a better complement for it.

Coffee Shop Design Tip 4

Add pieces of visual interest such as lamps, mirrors, paintings, and sculptures in your coffee shop. This is not only to make the place more interesting but also to give personality to your coffee shop. Of course, you have to consider again, the theme and color of the place before adding in any accent. For example, fleur de lis artwork will be a great addition to a coffee shop that exudes a European royalty style whereas modern wall decor is ideal for a contemporary design.

Coffee Shop Design Tip 5

Provide proper lighting. Lighting is also a crucial element of design. Your coffee shop should provide ambient lighting that will enable people to relax and unwind. Lights that are too bright or harsh will not do any good just like too dim lighting.

Apart from the coffee and pastries you serve, and the service with smile given by your crew, another important element of a coffee shop that will contribute to its success is its overall design and ambience.
