In the decoration of the house
In the decoration of the house, Even if you enter someone’s house and do not speak to the owner, you can recognize the person. How? See the interior. Where people live, their habits, likes, and dislikes are scattered around. So the decoration is very important.
As much as people were focused on personal grooming earlier, they did not have much interest in home decoration. The thought is such, what is there to think so much about the furniture, it is only one thing. Times have changed, more or less everyone is now focusing on home decor. Arranging and organizing your home space in accordance with personal taste and affordability.
And so it can be seen that two flats of the same size in the same apartment building have different looks just because of the decoration. Because nothing else, the householder’s own taste. Some people are doing interior design in a modern style, some people prefer tradition, and some people prefer a mix of both.
What is trending in interior design now?

Interior design and decoration are done by combining wood, board, metal, different types of tiles, patterned glass, heavy raw or silky fabrics, different types of light fixtures, paintings, photographs, portraits, etc. The walls are painted in different colors, and different textures and different rustic stones are used. Ceilings, wall treatments, floor treatments, furniture, lighting—everything is brought under the composition to stand up in design. The entire flat is designed by coordinating the color of the furniture and furnishings with the walls.
Indoor plants and showers are very important accessories in modern home decor. For that reason, in most flats, the balcony is transformed into a small garden. Small seating arrangements are also available. In the early morning light, one can sit and read a newspaper or get lost in the soft afternoon light while sipping tea.
Some of the more affluent still prefer the Victorian style. To them, the Victorian interior is a symbol of aristocracy. In such interiors, the entire house is decorated with heavily decorated furniture, ornate chandeliers, lace brocade, muslin curtains, large wall clocks, paintings, patterned ceilings, colorful carpets, etc.
However, the Victorian style is not very suitable in Bangladesh due to the shape of the house and the type of weather. So interior decorators try to discourage this style of decorating the house. But if one has a large open house, the such decoration can be done.
It is important to follow some basic rules in contemporary home interior design, such as the use of colors, selection of lines and spaces, design of furniture and flooring, paintings, use of lights, presence of flowers and plants, etc.
