How To, Tips, and Advice

If you’re on a budget and would like to save a few bucks (so you can splurge elsewhere), or you’re unsure of how to go about creating the functional and aesthetic home of your dreams, or you simply love the thrill of accomplishment when you do something on your own, Homedit’s How-To section of articles is the ultimate helpful guide. Here are found tips and advice for a variety of home decorating questions and challenges.

Smart Stairs: Squeezing Space Out of Your Staircase

If you’re anything like me, you find home design and décor inspiration just about everywhere. It’s a fantastic feeling, I think, to be inspired…but sometimes translating that inspiration into reality can be a challenge.

In this article, you will find a few inspirational photos of how some homeowners have maximized their staircase space (often, this is “dead space” in a home, but it doesn’t have to be!). Then, these over-the-top-awesome photos will be followed by some other (also great) ideas of how average people with average budgets and home/building constraints might translate the space-saving ideas on a smaller, perhaps more manageable scale. But still with style. I like to call this “Dreamy Inspiration vs. Real Implementation.”

How to Use Antique Rugs

Antique rugs can bring elegance and depth to your home. So before you roll that antique rug out of sight, make it the room’s focus! Here are some tips on how to use antique rugs in your décor so that they become stylish accessories.

A Mediterranean Move.

Antique Rug Strikes the Right Mediterranean Chord

An antique rug might make you think of a traditionally designed room, but it can also be Mediterranean. If you choose such a rug for this type of room, opt for furniture that is striking. The pieces you choose work best when they contain colors that reflect the rug’s color palette. For instance, a deep blue chair can pick up the blue that is in the rug, creating synchronicity.


Clean, Fresh Color Palette Trios for the House

Sometimes you need a blank slate. Sometimes you need a clean palette to feel refreshed, revived and organized. It could be in the kitchen or your home office. It could be the guest bathroom or the patio. Wherever you need that clean, fresh color pay attention to that desire.

When you go for color combinations that are too loud or chaotic, you won’t get the relaxing, breathable vibe everyone wants for their home. For a bit of inspiration, we’ve compiled some palettes to get your wheels turning and get your nooks and crannies feeling rejuvenated!


The Best 10 Colors To Paint The Outside of Your House With

Picking the right exterior color can be crucial. It’s even more important than your front door and foyer combined in terms of first impressions. Whether you’ve decided on a foundation and shutter combine or just one shade that fits the entire home, we’re here to share some classic favorites to help you decide on the perfect tone for your own home. Think heavily on this, it should show the house’s personality as well as your family’s. And it should be traditional enough to look cozy outside, but unique enough to stand out on the street. Take a look!

1. Smooth, Chocolatey Brown.

Dark enough to stay timeless, but less harsh on the eyes than the favorite black, chocolate brown has a soft, welcoming vibe. It looks great on larger houses and looks even better paired with soft greens and creamy whites for a down-home, natural style.
