Whether you’re moving into a new home or transforming your existing home, it’s exciting to think about the interior design of your home. Creating a space that reflects your taste, your aesthetic, and your lifestyle is exhilarating but it can also feel a little intimidating. If you’re not sure where to start, these tips from home expert might help you get started with the perfect interior design
Think About The House Design
In general, when you’re choosing an interior design style for your home, you need to think about the type of house that you have, the age of the house along with the overall space and details that the house has already. Unless you’re planning on doing a major renovation you can use the style of the architecture of your home as a basis for your interior design. If you have a classic Craftsman home then a luxurious Bohemian style interior design with some Craftsman touches would be beautiful and comfortable. Or if the home has the clean lines and open space of a mid-century modern home then you can use that as a jumping-off point to start creating your interior design.
Choose Furniture Pieces That Fit The Space
The scale and type of furniture and artwork that you choose for your home should always fit the space that you have. If your new home has vaulted ceilings you don’t want to choose small light fixtures. Go big with a stunning grand chandelier that will fill that space and give the space an elegant feel. Or if you have a small living room with stunning views pick understated luxury furniture for that room so that the room will feel cozy and comfortable without detracting from the view outside.
It’s All About You
Your interior design should reflect your passions and your lifestyle. If you love plants, then plants should be featured in every room to give the space light and air. If you love movies then there should be a media room with stadium seating or luxury seating and a state of the art projector system to screen films at home. Focus on your passions and the things that you love when choosing an interior design style so that your home will be a place where you love to spend time.
Your home is your sanctuary and you should invest in keeping your home as comfortable as possible. Buying high-quality furniture, great art, and luxury textiles like pillows and blankets will make a difference in how you feel when you’re at home. You should always buy the best quality furniture and design elements that you can afford and upgrade them regularly. You’re investing in peace of mind and the enjoyment of your home and it’s hard to put a price on that.
Don’t Be Afraid Of Color
Many people try to stay away from color in their homes because they aren’t sure how to design with color. Professional designers can help you embrace color and create a home environment that flows with beautiful colors that will inspire you, relax you, and make your home your favorite place to be. Even if you prefer neutrals you can use neutrals in your home without falling back on beige and white. Black, dark blue, silver-gray, and other neutrals can give your home a modern feel without being overwhelming.
