How to decorate a luxury bungalow
What is a bungalow?
It’s a huge house with many storeys. It contains many rooms like big lounge or hall, a huge kitchen and many bedrooms. As it a huge house so decorating it in a way that it will be attractive is quite difficult. But don’t be tensed, there are many ways to decorate it luxuriously so that whenever someone comes to your bungalow he would not be able to control himself from admiring it. As you’ve spent so much on buying a bungalow you must have to spend on its decoration too, but that would not be a problem for a millionaire who has bought a bungalow.
Let’s start from outside
Let’s start. The porch of your bungalow must be neat and proper. There must a garden as people like to sit there. Place some chairs and a table in your garden. Garden must contain fresh plants. Assign a gardener to do this job. Keeping your garden clean will have a good effect on your health too. If you’ve extra space you can make a small swimming pool too. Put chairs and table across it to sit. Having a swimming pool in summers is great fun. You can invite your friends or family to join you in swimming. This will help in remaining fresh in summers. You can have a barbeque grill there too. After a swim, having barbeque with your friends will certainly make your day. If you still have space (as it’s a bungalow) you can a small basketball court too. If you have kids or you’re young or interested in sports this will be a perfect thing for you. You can play in your free time. This will also make your game strong.
Moving towards inside
Now talk about the inside of the house. The passage must be decent. Placing things that doesn’t suit or looks extravagant will have negative effect. Decorating lounge properly is very important as it’s the place where everyone sits together. A TV lounge definitely contains a TV. Place a shelf for TV so that you can also put VCR and CD player etc. there. Lounge must have sofas and a table. You can also place a crockery showcase. The good crockery that you don’t use daily can be placed there. Some guests or family members who don’t like to sit and lay there. A side table along with sofas is perfect. You can place different decoration pieces and your telephone there. You can hang some decoration pieces on the wall too. Curtains must be matching to your sofas. The other furniture like tables and TV shelf must be according to the color of the room too. For example the walls are of light brown color so place sofas of chocolate brown color with curtains of the same color. Other furniture like shelf can be dark brown. This will definitely give a soothing effect to eyes.
A dining room must be simple. Place a simple dining table. Wooden dining tables are now a days very popular. They make the look of the dining room really classy. You can place small tables at the corner and put some vases there.
Bedroom? It’s a private place so you can decorate it completely like you want. But your guests or friends like to visit bedroom too so it should be attractive too. Use good lightening. Place more bulbs and put some table lamps too. You can paint the wall completely of one color or you can use pattern or designs. Put good and bright color carpets. Place a bed of your choice for example single or double. There must be a dresser too. A full long mirror with a table to put your stuff will be good. Or you can also have a dressing table. Put some sofas across dressing table.
If you have extra bedrooms left that are of no use because you small number of family members then there are so many things you can utilize them into.
- A guest room: We all are familiar with guest rooms. There are some guests who like to stay for night or two with you. You don’t want them to disturb in your privacy in bedroom so you let them spend the night in guest room. Guest room must be very decent and comfortable. Wall colors and print must not be too bright. There must a bed so they can sleep properly. Having a mirror is a must too because guest may need to get dressed next day. You can place tables and chairs too.
- A gym: It may sound ridicules but having a gym in your own house will save your time and make your house look more luxurious. You can buy different exercise items and put them in that room. Those items are expensive so you can only buy if you’re rich (that you definitely are because you have that bungalow haha!). You can make that gym commercial or you can only use it for yourself and your friends and family.
Bathrooms are necessity and frequently used part of your house. A bathroom can be simple but decorating it will make it more interesting. Use the paint wisely. Colors combinations like light and dark blue would be perfect. Place a bathtub with a shower. Use curtains around it. Make cabinets which will be useful and also look really nice. Separate bathrooms and separate toilets would be perfect. Use good quality accessories like sink and taps.
Drawing room is mostly used by guests. It is the part of the house that is not opened until some guests come. So it must be really decent and elegant. Use classical colors paints. Curtains and carpets should not be too bright. Put sofas and table that match each other accessories of the room. Put vases with fake roses and other decoration pieces on table. Don’t put TV there as it may not look proper. Decorate walls with sceneries that are decent.
The decoration of your house depends upon your choice but if you want to make it impressive so that your guests and friends would admire it, you should follow some rules. By making good combinations and keeping certain things in mind you can make your bungalow the best and the most impressive.
