An easy way to enhance the value of a room is to decorate it well. Revamping the look of a room is no rocket science. There are no specific rules when it comes to interior designing. In fact, most interior designers don’t follow any rule book. They are creative, love to explore, dream, imagine, and follow their intuition. They have some rough principles, though, which guide them to achieve great results.
So, with a little creativity, you can remarkably boost the appeal of any room. If you need some ideas to get started, we are here to help you! Below appear some great decorating ideas for you to kick start your home decor venture:
1. Choose the paint color at last
Homeowners often wish to choose a paint color prior to moving into a home. They want to arrive to a home with its walls freshly painted. This can be done, however, it’s not that great thing to do.
Paint colors come in thousands of shades, tones and tints. The appearance of each color differs from one home to another, because the light sources differ. This means that a color which has a great look in your current home, may not look that good in your new home. It’s a good idea to opt for a paint color that complements your rugs, artworks, upholstery, and other stuff in the best way. And you can choose that hue only when your furniture and other stuff are actually in your home.
2. Give some space to your furniture
Avoid overcrowding a room. To live graciously, you should have space that can be easily maneuvered. This is good if you have a tight budget. Instead of filling up the space with too many furniture pieces, invest only on a few quality pieces.
3. Hang art at a proper height
Museums and galleries hang artworks such that the center (midline) of every piece is at a height of 57 to 60 inches from the ground. The average eye level of human beings is 57 inches. You should also do this at your home.
In a room where the ceilings are quite high, you may tend to hang the artworks higher. However, keep in mind that it should relate to the human scale, rather than the structure’s scale.
4. Use die cut decor items
If you like die cutting and have a good die cut equipment at home, you can create many different craft items and decor pieces using it. Die cut fabric and paper designs have an appeal of their own, and can strikingly refine the look and feel of any room. You can cut out designs of flowers, animals, butterflies, snowflakes, and much more. You can also make cards and scrapbooks. Hang or stick them anywhere you feel convenient.
5. Have a focal point
In any production, there are some lead roles and some supporting cast people. The same applies to design. Choose one thing and set it as the focal point of a room. Let other items have a secondary role. Don’t ask all things to play a leading role, as that would just create visual noise.
The focal point may be a headboard in your bedroom, an art piece and mantel in your living room, or a striking hood in your kitchen. Choose anything that draws attention.
6. Be bold
Any space becomes great because of its personality. Make a statement and enjoy. When you start trying more, you start figuring out more what works well and what does not. Include unexpected elements to create some drama. For example, if you have a conventional living room, you can incorporate unconventional oversized chandeliers, library-style bookshelves, and ottoman seats. The result is a room that has the wow effect. 7. Choose the mirrors thoughtfully
When hanging mirrors in a room, give a careful thought to what they would reflect. Go for picking up an amazing scene, such as a splendid chandelier. 8. Go for a straw rug
You may think that straw is an outdoor textile, however, it would look quite good indoors. Natural materials with neutral hues, like rush, jute and straw, are always cool. Decorating home is truly an interesting and joyful venture! With these tips, you can make things easier for yourself. Apply them in your rooms, and watch how these small and simple ideas make a big difference in the look and feel of your rooms.
