Everyone has a different idea about what constitutes an enviable home. For some it might be a warm ambience or atmosphere, and for others it might be a clutter free sense of modernity. However, regardless of taste and preference, there are some basic principles that should never be overlooked—simple rules and guidelines that are essential to a functional, practical and comfortable interior.

When designing your abode, it is a good idea to have in your mind the particular style and décor you desire. Your home should feel inviting, whether you choose an austere and minimal interior, or a cosy and casual one.
