Home is the place where we destress, brighten up our moods, and smile with joy. It has a whole set of emotions and this is why everyone, including you and me, want to decorate it with different themes, products, colors, and art pieces in order to make it more calm, comfy, lively, and beautiful.

The craze of decorating homes is so high that the global home decor market is expected to reach $838.6 billion by 2027 and many entrepreneurs and start-ups have already jumped the wagon in this business.  You might be having similar plans or at least a thought, considering you’re reading this article for some ideas. So, let’s give some artistic touch to your home decor business thoughts and plans.

So, if you have that, just go for this business without giving a second thought. And if you don’t have that much knowledge about colors, arts, and decoration, remember, every master was once a student. Learn and grow! 

Alright, back to our home decor ideas…

Remodeling/Renovating

Everything from color contrast to wall art, furniture, and decor items can be suggested and clients looking for makeover or renovation can get in touch with you. To give a better experience or show your expertise, you can even provide different style-based solutions such as Bohemian Style, Mid-century Modern Style, Scandinavian Style makeover, Farmhouse, Urban Modern Chic, and more.

Affordable and Online Sourcing

There was a time when hiring professional interior designers was a luxury. Now, it’s easy and can be done quickly through online platforms. You can start an online home decor sourcing portal where customers can upload the images of their space and designers from across the globe can share their design samples or bid for a particular. The client can then proceed with the designer they choose. It’s like a job portal where employers post their job requirements and candidates apply for it by sharing resumes. The main goal here should be to provide customers with every kind of home decor services and products from furniture providers to interior designers.

Furniture Re-upholsterers

Every few years, furniture needs restoration – be it a sofa, couch, chair, or kitchen set. If fixing it seems appealing to you, go for furniture reupholstering. You can offer to replace paddings, springs, fabrics, webbing, leather covers – a complete furniture restoration for both domestic and corporates with different types of furniture styles – modern, traditional, or antique. Besides restoration, also showcase your re-carved furniture and sell it.

Style Profiling

We are often confused between the two sets of home decor items that we like. This chair or that one. To find an answer, many of us look for suggestions. This is where you can enter with your business, e-decorate service. For customers who have little to no experience with home decor or shopping home items, you can provide services to help them articulate their aesthetics and narrow down the choices. By asking questions, you can first understand their taste, and based on it, you can recommend products, designs, and different wall art. 

Along with their customized designs, you can also provide online design packages for rooms, kitchen, or outdoor – something your inner interior designer would love.

Home Decor Store

Do you have an affinity for home products like curtains, railings, wall decor, lighting, showpieces,  or in-door plants? Then this could be the home decor business idea for you. You can start a home decor store that sells all types of home decor products. Or you can also provide specialized products, say, antique products, eco-friendly products, or a special category like lighting, carpets, and rugs. Don’t think people won’t buy from you. There are a lot of vintage, eco-friendly lovers out there, and also the ones who prefer specialization, over generalization. 

Depending on your business choice, you can start a home decor store offline or online. However, an online store would be a better option.

Customized Solution

You can start a home decor startup that directly works with the artisans and manufacturers and sells the items on their website. For example, you can sell a wall art painting done by a specific tribe through your eCommerce store. Or if your customer wants a customized design such as an apple-shaped chair for their kids, you can get it custom ready. Also, you can cut down on the middle costs by purchasing the products from the manufacturers and can sell it at a lower price than other retailers.
