Nearly everyone has been to a house that had beautiful decor in each room, but there may have been a room or two that seemed to have too many home accents in it. Each piece was unique and had an interesting story, but ultimately the room felt cluttered and you may have silently told yourself that you would never decorate your home in such a way. If you’re trying to find the right balance of decor, furniture, and lighting for your home, here are some tips to consider.

Think about the color of each object that you place in a particular room. Does it match the color of the walls, or at least complement it? Will it absorb light or reflect it? One of the biggest issues that homeowners face with home decor is that the lighting isn’t positioned correctly on each piece, and too many shadows are created, therefore changing the ambiance of the space. For glass curio cabinets or display cases, consider adding linear, low voltage lights in the cabinet itself, or miniature downlights at the top.

It’s also important to consider which home accents work best in which room. You might have a complete collection, but that doesn’t mean you can’t distribute the pieces throughout your home. Alternatively, you could only display the more rare pieces, and create conversation around them instead of worrying if guests are thinking about how cluttered the room is.

The right home accents should complete a room, not fill it up. With help from the decor and design team at Hacienda Lighting in Scottsdale, you can strike the right balance in each room of your home. Stop by our showroom or call us at (480) 485-1189 today!
