Your home is your fortress of solitude, or it can the base for some impressive parties. But, whatever your intentions you’ll want to make your house feel like a home. That means you’re going to want some interior design, but this can be an expensive option.
Fortunately, with a little inspiration, and the following interior design tricks, you can get a fantastic looking home.
1. Use Soft Colors
The smaller the room the more important it is that you use soft and light colors. These are colors that make a room feel brighter and larger simply by bouncing available light around the room.
Soft colors don’t mean white, it simply means that you’re choosing from the paler end of the spectrum, that’s colors that give a hint of color without being overpowering.
2. Choose The Right Furniture
Overcrowding a room will make it look small, uninviting, and potentially dark. That could be a good thing if you’re aiming to recreate your favorite haunted house.
Unfortunately, it’s not going to make your home feel more comfortable and it’s unlikely to display your personal style well.
Instead choose one piece of quality furniture, such as a good example of French provincial furniture, add a few pieces to complement this and then minimize the rest of the furniture in the room. You’ll find that the special piece draws your eye and is a talking point, while the rest of the room looks more spacious and inviting.
3. Add Light
Light is essential n any home, it doesn’t just make the house feel larger. It can also boost your mood and leave you feeling good.
It’s actually very easy to add light to your home without adding extra windows or even changing the electrics. Simply add mirrors that will bounce the light around your rooms and make your home feel brighter, as well as warmer.
4. Mix It Up
To really establish your style you shouldn’t be afraid to mix different furniture and decorating styles. The aim is to create a slightly eclectic look and one that s both comfortable and reflects your personality.
It can be a lot of fun mixing different styles but you do need to stick to the idea of minimalization unless you have a large home that can accommodate an array of furniture. That means choosing wisely.
5. Include Greenery
A final design trick that can transform any home is to introduce some greenery, in the form of plants. You’ll probably want to opt for plants that are easy to maintain. Adding these helps to make it feel like your outside, even when you’re inside. This can transform the look and feel of your home, it can even make the air fresher and improve your health!
The key thing to remember when designing your home is that every item you choose should reflect your personality. No matter how many people you have to visit, it’s your home and it’s you that must feel comfortable and relaxed when you’re there. That means you don’t need to follow the latest trends, just the ones that suit you.
