Your home should be your sanctuary. Your oasis, to escape to at the end of a busy day. You want to make it as welcoming and comfortable as possible. Check out these top home décor ideas to make your home a little homier and fun. 


Accent Walls

An accent wall is one wall in a room that doesn't match the others. It can be different wallpaper, paint, design, mural, or even a unique texture. They are becoming more and more popular in homes. While every room shouldn’t have an accent wall, they can be featured in several rooms throughout the house. The best spots to feature accent walls include: behind a bed, in a long room, in a big room, or across from or behind the couch.


More Mirrors

Mirrors are a great way to improve and to lighten your home. They reflect light from the outside, brightening any room. It can make the room feel more open, and welcoming. They also create a visual illusion, making rooms look bigger. And anytime you pass one, you can always check to make sure you look your best before going about the rest of your day. Lastly, you can buy mirrors in various shapes, from a full length mirror, circular, rectangle, even some that take up most of the wall. 


Rugs

Rugs are an easy way to brighten up your space. They can match the walls, contrast it, or provide a pop of color to a room. Rugs make a room more inviting, plus muffle sound throughout the home, making the house quieter and rooms more private. Plus, they are easy to find in many home décor stores.


Sliding Doors

Sliding doors, such as pocket doors and barn doors, are a great addition to your home. They create easier flow throughout the home, and can close off rooms as needed. You can even purchase an automated door system, which has the door open as you approach. This is helpful when you’re walking through with your arms full, or trying to get from room to room fast. It can even make the home neater. Installing automatic sliding door hardware on barn doors can automatically shut your closet, or closing a messy room off from a clean one. Plus, if you put them on the sliding door at the back of your house, they can let your dog in and out without you needing to help them. 


Bookshelves To Separate Rooms

Most rooms have doors, panels, or even curtains to separate rooms. However, you can also use bookshelves to separate and divide rooms. This piece of home furniture makes a fun and unique way to section off rooms, and can even be pushed around if on wheels. Further, bookshelves are not just for displaying your book collection. Many people decorate them with items such as vases, photos, trinkets, and more. 


Using all of the mentioned tactics, you can show your guests what kind of pieces speak to you. Plus, they can be easily found at any home store or website.
