Whether you're a yuppie who just purchased a condo, a newlywed couple moving into a new home, or recently had a baby, you must be—in one way or another—redecorating, renovating or changing the look of your home. We know all that styling dilemmas and decision-making can be pretty daunting, so to help you through the process, we've rounded up some tips you can try out. Check them out below:

1. Always have enough seats for entertaining guests.

An L-shaped couch is a good alternative to ottoman stools, as it can seat more. You can also cover the floor with a pretty area rug and add some pillows that guests can easily plop on.

2. Be playful.

Go for functional items that are also visually appealing. Feel free to let your personality show in the little details. After all, your home should be all about you.

3. Revamp, reuse and recycle.

Don't be afraid to shake things up! Give an old piece of furniture a second life with a new coat of paint.

4. Opt for glass doors and windows to let in natural light.

This way, you not only conserve electricity, but you also give your home a light and airy feel. Plus, if you have kids, they will enjoy the view of the outdoors.

5. Start a garden.

Regardless of the size of your home, having a patch of green is a good idea. Create a mini herb corner in your yard or window. Not only can you help bring in fresh air with the plants, but you can also use them for cooking homemade dishes and preparing natural remedies. 

6. Experiment with typography.

They say pictures paint a thousand words, but there's nothing like words to get your point across. Instead of ordinary artwork, spell out what you want with typography prints.

7. Add personality. 

The weirder, the better. Display whimsical items, be it lizard lamps or a large wooden compass, to let people's imaginations run wild.
