A mark of a great home is in part its decorations. Both inside the home and outside the need to have an appearance that is of a high standard; a standard which makes people look and go “Wow!”, rather than just walk by and act as if the building doesn’t exist. Likewise with guests you’ve got to your home; you want those guests to have a positive impression of you, and that is in part determined by the impression created by your home, because it has a lot to say about who you are as a person.
This leads a lot of people to say that the décor of a home is in part an expression of the inhabitants, which is understandable when you realise that you’ve chosen everything because that’s what you like. While it is a good thing to have some individuality with the style of your home, tempering your wishes to some extent can make the result better for other people.
There is a lot to be gained from a well decorated home. Firstly, it can show how well a house can appear when somebody has worked hard on it, which can in turn result in a better value in the event of you wanting to sell the home. Secondly, it can impress people that you want to impress. And thirdly, having a great environment to inhabit can improve your own quality of life.
