When you are embarking on your journey of interior design, the design aspect should never entirely outweigh the practicality of it all. There are lots of great design choices that server dual purposes – the ones I’m talking about today are the kind that look good and protect your home.
You don’t need to go out and buy some fancy home security system – although Security Choice now offers Pulse home automation. There are other things you can do in and around the house to make it look good and, more importantly, feel safer.
Exterior matters just as much as the interior so let’s just get that over with. For the outside, you might consider purchasing some tasteful shrubs or at least trimming back the bushes you have out front, surrounding the door. Whatever you decide to do, remember that you should be able to see over the tops of these bushes.
As for the interior, you should look into some tasteful blinds and curtains that go with the overall theme of your home. Aside from looking good, these can also prevent any unwanted “window shopping” from any potential intruders.
There are lots of things you can do. Just try to remember, when you’re making interior design choices, to insert a healthy dose of practicality along the way.
