Modern accessories and the range of decorating freedom available today ensures that you can choose any theme that you want. But with so many options available, which way do you exactly go?

#1 Pick a theme that you are truly passionate about

We know what you are thinking at this point- ‘this is barely an advice’. But most often people confuse stuff that interests them temporarily with their passion. Thing is that once you pick a theme and are half way through with decorating, you cannot have a sudden change of heart. If you do, it will cost you more time, money and effort. Your passion could be anything, just ensure that it is truly what you want to be surrounded with 24 – 7.

#2 Try taking up a theme for which you can shop locally

This might sound silly, but if you do pick a theme that allows you to bring in your furniture and accessories from the local market, then it saves you tons of money and time. Apart from making life a lot easier, you may also be getting better deals as you will always know the local market a lot better and will feel comfortable shopping at home.

#3 Surroundings and rest of the home

It is a good idea to get a computer generated preview of how the theme would look with the rest of the home and the surroundings. If you live close to a beach, then pick a theme that is similar. If you are surrounded by valleys and mountains, then a greener theme would be great. Though this isn’t compulsory, you can always go the other way and try the contrasting style as well. It’s a matter of individual taste.

#4 Ensure that your theme fits with the space available

Certain themes will require a lot more space than others as they need a far grander look to that adds to the fascinating element. Some others are perfect for smaller rooms. It is always a good idea to pick a theme that you love and also fits well within the available space. Do not try to blindly copy a style that you have seen somewhere in a far more spacious room as it can come off very badly with those dimensions changed.

#5 Plan according to your needs and budget

Remember that you do not have limitless amount to spend on your theme, so pick something that will allow you to decorate your room in an ample fashion while still falling in your budget. Also ensure that the theme does not compromise on the comfort and utility factor of your room. You do not want to get something that is great to look at but uncomfortable to live in.

Picking the right theme for your room is all about mixing the perfect aesthetics with your taste and some wonderful creativity. Themes can vary from the classic favorites like the beach, stars and sky and green living to something unorthodox like sports themes and even movie ss. It is all about going in a direction that your heart and mind point towards!
