Decorate Your Home Based On Your Style

Filed under: House and Home, Interiors

You don’t have to let anyone tell you how you should decorate your home. If a small accent piece stands out and appeals to your idea of good taste then you should feel free to buy it and display it. Some pieces will give you more than the simple pleasure of owning something that looks good.

Table lamps are multi-dimensional pieces of furniture that not only give you the ability to add decorative style to a room but they also serve as a valuable light source too. When placed strategically around a room they can provide some much needed task lighting in one part of the room while another lamp can create an ambience that makes the room feel more inviting.

In a way you could say they serve the same kind of purpose as a stair runner rug or door mats in that they have decorative appeal that will add to the room’s décor but they also serve a functional purpose.

Different types of lamps can be used for different lighting purposes in the room. Some lamps are suitable as general lighting in the room, large enough to throw enough light for the entire room. Other lamps are more directional and should only be used as task or accent lighting the light is more enclosed and is only meant for close or intimate work.

This is one of the selling points of putting table lamps around the rooms in which you will be most frequently using. They cover a range of lighting needs and, at the same time, help to give the room the ambience required to help make it more comfortable. You could place a brass table lamp on one side of the room giving the hint of a more traditional feeling to the room while placing a more modern chrome floor lamp in the corner to provide a reading area yet you can still maintain the decorative integrity.

In the end the way you lay out the room and the pieces you use to decorate it will come down to a combination of personal taste and the opportunity of finding different pieces. Sometimes an unusual or appealing vase or statuette will jump out at you and beg you to buy it with its placement in the home becoming a reflection of your own personality.

Let’s take a moment to discuss the overall picture or impression that someone has when they enter your dining establishment.  The first thing that they will often notice is the overall theme and look of your place.  Next, they will encounter your hostess or greeter.  At some point, they will be seated and the first thing they will be presented with is their menu.  From this point, they will form an opinion about your food choices and what looks appetizing.  That’s it, right?  Well, no, not exactly.  You see, before they even looked at the food choices, they had already made some internal impressions just from your restaurant menus itself without even thinking about it.

Now, you can choose to either ignore this fact or think that it is trivial in nature, but you will be short changing your ability to wow your guests.  While the food you serve is still the most important aspect to your establishment, there are other factors to consider.  One such factor is how you present those food choices.  You will not be able to remain in business in the harsh restaurant world without paying attention to every detail.

If you ignore the small things, then you will have to have the most amazing food choices available just to break even.  And, while your food needs to be that good, it might not be enough.  People are also eating out to be entertained.  Dining out is as much about being served as it is about filling up so we aren’t hungry.  You have a different perspective because you are in the industry, but your guests are looking for ways to be entertained and enjoy an evening out.  When it comes to spending their disposable income, whether in tight or more jubilant times, paying attention to this fact will be the best investment you ever make.
