Looking at the number of interior decorators in the market may make us feel like interior decorating is an easy task. But what people fail to understand is that it isn’t only about understanding fabrics, lighting and colour. People must know that interior decorating does take a bit of knowhow. Here are some easy tips we put together to help you with interior decorating.
Large windows and lighter colours make smaller rooms look larger
Large windows and light coloured walls tend to reflect natural light and give the illusion of space, making the room you’re in feel larger than it really is. This is a great trick to use in houses that have limited carpet area.
Decorative mirrors can give your room more lighting
Mirrors can be used in two ways. One, they can make a small room seem larger. And two, mirrors placed directly across windows help spread light all across the room. Decorative mirrors can also be strategically placed around the house to replace works of art, and can be used to fill empty spaces. A combination of large or small mirrors add dimension to your living quarters.
Mix and match
Decorating your home with a mix of vintage and modern artefacts can turn your home into a work of art. Don’t feel afraid to try out various combos, as the way you decorate your home as it reflects who you are. After all, who’s to say that your grandfather’s antique desk won’t look great beside the modern couch you fell in love?
Slip into something more comfortable!
Many people have a negative notion on slip-on covers. But the truth is that they can be a very creative way of making your furniture reflect the seasons. The best part is that you can easily slip them on and take them off, letting you change your home decor in minutes. They are also useful in not having to worry about guests spilling on them.
Add plants to your living quarters. In fact, add lots of them! Try and place at least a couple of potted plants in each room. They not only add colour and texture to your home, but they also freshen the air and balance out humidity levels. They are especially great at absorbing toxic gasses from the air, and it is for this reason that every house should have them.
Do try these useful tips to add a fresh new appeal to your lovely home. And always remember, there isn’t right or wrong when it comes to decor, just match or mismatched items.
