When a style is chosen, it gives you a fair bit of idea about the cost to incur on the project.

Good use of decorative pieces

Making a good use of decorative pieces such as painting and wall units is a sound interior decorating strategy. This approach is as valid when the budget is low and when there is no dearth of money. Such pieces lend elegance and style to the interiors together with adding a visual glow to the spaces.

An extra coat of paint

Nothing gives as much facelift to your room as an extra coat of paint. A well-painted well is the symbol of a house whose interior is decorated.

This approach also works wonders by giving a sense of newness and neatness to the spaces. This is something you can use for any room and let your house glow in less.

Vaastu Interior

Vastu comes from the same ancient scriptures of the Vedas that define the practises of yoga, meditation, Ayurveda, and Vedic astrology. Vastu is the yoga of interiors, bringing balance to your life, health and harmony to your environment, inner peace and tranquility through order, and unity. Meditation gives the experience of pure consciousness to the subtle spirit; Vastu enhances this and connects us with the source through proper channels of design. Ayurveda, is the discipline of the science of life, creating balance for health of the body. Vastu creates healthy buildings; this so absolutely affects our mental and physical health, happiness, and prosperity —- and the health of the environment. Vedic astrology gives knowledge of planetary influences on our lives, emotions, relationships, prosperity, career, and health. Applying an expert Vastu consultant’s recommendations and remedies helps correct negative influences in all areas of life. It also increases and creates positive effects well beyond the merely decorative.

Sacred Geometry or Yantras which create perfect geometrical three-dimensional energy fields and, when placed properly in the home, help neutralize any negative effects of improper vastu. A yantra is a visual mantra and are great tools for buildings that were not Vastu-designed. They protect from disturbing negative energies in the environment. When we focus upon a yantra mandala, the mind resonates with the energy of the deity and a higher awareness or consciousness is said to be obtained. The planets exert powerful vibratory effects on our bodies, minds, and emotions. Yantras give us help in creating harmony with nature rather than working against the forces from nature. Yantras are beautiful art, the original Vedic sacred geometry from ancient India. These cosmic diagrams generate beautiful energies that instill splendid divine consciousness into your surroundings.

North – East areas of your homes are considered as the energy generators. Placing a Sri Yantra in the North East corner will magnify the energy of prosperity and happiness. Sitting quietly in a comfortable position, allow your breathing to settle into a deep, slow rhythm, meditate and feel the energy of abundance and prosperity flowing through you.

Vastu recognizes five elements of creation that, when honored, enhance the flow of prana, universal life-force energy, within a building. Honoring nature is a sacred acknowledgement. The five elements of earth, air, fire, water, and space are energetically linked with particular directions. Earth is associated with the southwest; air, northwest; fire, southeast; and water the northeast. Space, akasha, is the expansiveness in the center of both the architectural form and each room.

Curtains, tapestry and cushion cover play an important role in interior decoration of the house. Colourful silk curtains, tapestry, cushion decorate the house and enhance the beauty of the rooms. If you choose the colour of curtains according to Vaastu principles, the environment of your house will be calm and quiet. The Vaastu friendly sari curtains bring fortune and gradually the unfavorable circumstances turn favorable.

Wooden Garage Interior

Lack of adequate research

Mistakes made when choosing a wooden garage all boil down to a lack of sufficient research. People start looking around for options on the internet or in local shops without thoroughly looking into factors to consider when getting a garage. As such, decisions they make do not reflect their needs, and they end up spending money to make adjustments to their investment, something they could have avoided had they conducted extensive research on their needs and the garages on offer.

There are very many styles and designs on the market. Though this is a good thing such that you do not have to settle for something that you do not like, it often gets confusing and can lead to bad decision making. As such, there are some things that you must take into consideration during your research stage. If you live alone, then this is something that you can undertake on your own. In a case where you will not be the only one using the space, then sit with your family and discuss your needs.

Factors to consider during research

The vehicles

The number and kind of cars you wish to store in the garage should be the first thing that you take into consideration. The last thing that you aspire to do is to get a garage only to realize that the cars cannot fit, thus calling for the need of another room.

Space requirements

Garages are part of the house, and as such, they do more than just housing vehicles. Children use these spaces for other activities such as playing music and practicing their crafts, and you must consider this when settling on a design. The design you choose should also have adequate space to store items used in the maintenance of vehicles.

You must also consider if you want to use the garage for storing things that are no longer in use. Some people also use these spaces to entertain guests, and if you wish to follow this route, then you will need a lot of space. Think of all the things you would like to do in the garage and ensure that the size of the garage can accommodate such activities.

The budget

The amount of money you are willing to spend must come into play. Sometimes people get carried away in the search for a garage that they forget to make considerations on the amount of money they should use. Not having a budget exposes you to overspending and can have detrimental effects on your financial health.

Inadequate lighting

A wooden garage is more aesthetically pleasing when it has adequate lighting. As such, when you fit one lamp in your garage, you leave some places dimly lit, and this can lead to accidents. Someone may be looking for an item in the garage, and they might trip in the dark and land on tools.

Also, look into the kinds of lights that you use as they affect the temperature of the room. Many manufacturers recommend that you use fluorescent lighting in your garage. They use little energy, and they keep the temperatures down.

Little or no ventilation

Many people may not realize how significant ventilation is in a garage. Ensure that your garage has adequate windows which you can open when it gets hot inside. The windows will also add to the amount of light that the interior has, thus making it safe. You can also consider getting an exhaust fan which helps get rid of scents emitted by the vehicle. It is essential that air is in circulation at all times.

Bad electrical fittings

Electricity is very dangerous and must get handled with caution especially in a garage. If you do not pay attention to the wiring and there are open wires or extension cords on the roof, then you are exposing yourself to electrocution. If petrol and electricity get into contact, the results are devastating so keep this in mind when making your installations. The best way to conduct your fittings is by having the wires fitted in the walls as this reduces their exposure.

Inadequate insulation

Your vehicle will be in the garage for extended periods, and thus the environment must be conducive enough to keep it fresh. Also, remember that you will be working in the garage at times and you will require an atmosphere where you can stay for a long time without running hot. People may not give much thought to insulation until the summer comes and they begin regretting their decisions. Save yourself the discomfort and get the insulation done at an early stage.

Common Interior Design Mistakes

No regard for a messy appearance

We’re a people with a materialist approach to life. We don’t hesitate in buying gadgets and items hoping them to herald to the world our arrival. Every opportunity prods us to stuff the house with more accessories and items. This would be acceptable if you had a big and spacious house but it can clear clutter and a messy appearance when there is space constraint. With items fitted and strewn here and there, we lose the living space and it gives us an unorganized feeling. So, the focus should on buying only the items that are essential and leaving the rest right there at the shop.

Not giving custom furniture a go

Most of us get it bang wrong in choosing the furniture and end up spoiling the aesthetical charms of the interior. We generally buy the item even without mapping out the spaces; so we either end up having too large or too small for use. We should understand that custom is a concept to suit spaces perfectly. So, we can go with custom furniture, choose own design, pattern and color and style with furniture and help with space management. Plus, we can enhance functional and visual appeal of the areas by getting created furniture as per own specifications.

Selection of wrong color coordination

Most home owners trip on the all-important from of selecting the right colors for the interiors. They mess up the whole color scheme affair and are left with an unimpressive design for the interior. They get it all wrong with the shades and tins for the wall paints and don’t get them in sync with the furniture and fabrics. Similarly, they fail to choose the color matching with the theme and mood of spaces and reflecting the sensibility of the habitants. They should look to add different contrasts in the color scheme to get the right hues and effect for the interior.
