Most of us tend to leave interior designing to the professionals. Although it is an advanced art form it doesn’t mean we have to live in a boring home till a designer comes to the rescue. Here are 5 easy tips that you can follow to amp things up around the home.
Stick to a general theme whether it be a colour or an overall theme. Choose a few main colours and repeat them through the house. This will help to add a sense of order which can have a very positive effect on the brain and in turn, will make things look better. Choose soft soothing colours that you can actually in the long run. When you go out to buy decorations have your theme in mind and buy things that reflect the theme.
Play with colour.
Colours can be used to achieve many effects. Use light colours in small rooms to create an illusion of space. Soft colours will create a comforting feel that will make any place welcoming and liveable. However, don’t be afraid to make a few bold colour choices. A little excitement never hurt anyone. You can also use colours to create a certain energy in the atmosphere.
Have focal points.
In every room have one item that breaks the overall theme. This will act as a focal point. This can be a natural stone wall cladding Melbourne as a feature wall or a large vase in a small room. These will help anchor the space and create a positive visual effect. This can be a good opportunity to showcase some items that you are proud of or add an extra pop of colour that doesn’t go with the theme of the house. This is your chance to have some fun and experiment. Let your creativity guide you.
Mix things up.
Play around with textures and patterns. Granite countertops cost isn’t much but it can add a lot of texture to a kitchen. Some interesting carpets and curtains can also be a good opportunity to play with patterns. Mix up some old furniture with a few contemporary pieces and make things interesting. Since there is order created by the overall theme of the house put it off a bit by playing with interesting additions.
Plant make everything better.
They add colour, they add life and they add a sense of sophistication. Use a few ( or many) plants in every room. You can never go wrong with this.
Decorating your living space can be a rewarding experience. Give it a try and you will know the benefits.
