Designing the house we will be living in can be so interesting and somewhat challenging. Whether you just moved in or are looking for a quick redecorating, there are essential things to keep in mind and easy tricks to make your home effortlessly beautiful and cozy. Even the smallest addition can create a big impact. Should that be a new armchair, an additional mirror, your self-made paintings, and much more?
You can decorate your dining room with fancy chandelier, or make an eclectic design of your bedroom as a state of the art, but there are things to remember when it comes to interior design. Keep scrolling to uncover them!
1) Lighter colors help make a room feel larger
So, paint your smaller room with soft, light color. You can also add a mirror to make the room looks bigger, as mirror creates the optical illusion of space and reflects natural light. In the contrary, darker colors make a room feel smaller. You are free to paint a larger room in dark colors or a combination of dark-light paints.
2) Decorative mirrors can add instant light to a living space
As mentioned above, mirrors help make a room looks bigger. And if you have a room in your house that lacking in natural light, you can add a decorative mirror to invite the light. No matter the size, mirrors add dimensions and light to your room.
3) Mix things up
Feel free to mix plains, patterns, and textures, vintage and modern, as well as old and new. Your grandmother’s Victorian style dining chair will complement your funky dining table. Plain sofas look a lot better when paired with pillows with the myriad of patterns.
4) Dig through what you have to decorate
Decorating a room to make it looks stylish and sophisticated doesn’t need to be expensive. Look at the collection of shabby-chic plates, they will be a great wall decoration. If you have a big collection of books, use them as decoration for the drawing room or living room.
5) Flowers and plants will instantly beautify your kitchen
Kitchens should be warm and inviting, and plants will help you reach that goal. Use used cans, repaint them, and fill them with cactus and flowers to make a perfect centerpiece for your dining table. You can also consider hanging pots to decorate your kitchen. But hey, this rule applies to any other room as well!
6) Soften hardwood floors with rug
Hardwood floors are pretty and easy to maintain, but it tends to make the room feels rigid. Soften and enhance the looks instantly with a rug, which will give warmth and texture. Embellish your reading nook in front of a fireplace with a fluffy rug.
