Decorating your home can be an exciting experience and is typically considered the most fun part of having a space to call your own! Nonetheless, we all have our own preferences and styles that reflect who we are. While some zodiac signs are well-known to have strong decorating tastes, it can be a bit of a different experience for others like the ambitious, energetic Aries.

Aries has a fiery spirit that is constantly moving and ready to take on the world. They have clear ambitions and goals they want to accomplish. They also have tons of ideas and are often prepared to jump at starting a brand new project. So how does this affect the way they decorate their home? Check out the list below for ten things Aries should keep in mind as they start the process!

    Don't Be Afraid to Take Risks

    You are a bold sign that likes to make significant changes, and while it can be worth playing it safe at times, you shouldn't be afraid to take risks while decorating. You want this to represent you. A big part of that involves doing things others typically wouldn't because you have the drive to pull off big-scale ideas.

    Embrace the Color Red

    Red is your color, and it represents energy, power, and motivation. You don’t have to cover the whole house in the color in order for it to work in your favor, though. Even having this shade in small amounts will make you feel more at home and stir up those aspects of your fiery personality!

    Create Plenty of Open Space (When Possible)

    You aren't one who likes to be restricted in any area of your life. Try to create plenty of open space in your home if you're able to. Whether it's an open concept layout or painting the walls and adding mirrors to give the illusion of a larger space, the critical part is not feeling like you're held back or limited.

    Design a Specific Area for Your Creative Pursuits

    You're often underestimated about how creative you are, Aries. You have so many incredible ideas, and you need to be able to see them to fruition! Whether this looks like an office or just a corner specifically for your creative hobbies, be intentional in holding that space for yourself.

    Yes, It's Okay to Show Off a Little!

    Some people have a difficult time showing off when they achieve something, but you're not one of those people. You aren't someone who constantly brings up what you've done, but you still like for others to notice when you've done something. Set up an area that shows off your accomplishments, whether it is actual awards or just things you've made yourself. You can place shelves on the wall to display, or you can make what you've created a focal piece in your home. It can be helpful to have reminders of what you've done and can be a point of interest to share with anyone who comes over.

    Include Items That Can Be Easily Changed Out

    You might hate to admit it, but you tend to get bored quickly with things. So while painting walls and redoing your entire floors are great ways to improve your home, be sure to have other aspects that can be easily switched up. Removable wallpaper? Decorative rugs? Wall decor that you can rearrange or reuse elsewhere? Anything that allows you to make small changes that can change and affect the feel of the entire room. It will be perfect for those days you want to go in and change absolutely everything when you're feeling inspired.

    Make It Easy to Stay Organized and on Top of Things

    You enjoy having an organizational system in place; you like having a plan. To keep your home looking its best, you need to apply that same concept when you're decorating. Invest in items that can be multifunctional, notably doubling as extra storage. You need to easily remove clutter out of the way and keep things in order because if your home becomes too messy, it will distract you from what you want or need to accomplish.

    Don't Be Afraid to Experiment With Maximalism

    While minimalist styles are a popular trend to give the presentation of a nice, sleek home, why not have a little fun with maximalist styles instead? Maximalism focuses on taking more items and displaying them in fun, bold, and often unique ways. Rather than asking you to tone things down, it has you embrace bright colors, mix patterns together, and utilize your home in exciting new ways! Your personality embodies a delightfully chaotic attention-grabbing vibe, which meshes perfectly well with maximalism. Whether you test it out on just one wall or go for a bolder approach, this concept is a great way to show off your creativity!

    Go Through and Throw Out What Isn't Serving You Anymore

    Given that you're the first sign in the zodiac, it's no surprise that you're all about fresh starts and clean slates. Before you buy new items to decorate your home, take some time to go through and get rid of anything old you don't need anymore. While it can be tempting to hold onto things you've had for a while, you know that you likely don't need half the stuff that's just sitting around. Out with the old, in with the new!

    Don't Forget to Relax

    Make sure you have a space dedicated to relaxation. You're always on the move and can often have a hard time knowing when to rest. While your energy is admirable, it's essential to not burn yourself out, including while you're at home. Whether you add some scented candles and mood lighting to a room or embrace the relaxation of taking a bath and stocking the bathroom accordingly, make sure you take time to unwind as well. After all, your home is a place you can use to get away from the pressure of the world, so use it.
