Popular Design Tips for Every Home

Everyone wants to live in a beautiful home, right? Our homes are the sacred place where we can relax after a long day at work, raise families, have fun and make lots of amazing memories with our loved ones. We all start and end our days at our homes and, for some people, they even work from home too. When it comes to the interior design of your home, there is a common misconception that you need to have lots of money to create a beautiful pad. However, this is just not the case as basic design principles can be followed through on a budget and do not require a lot of money. If you are looking for some fantastic interior design tips and tricks to transform your home, then you have come to the right place and you can carry on reading to find out more.
Start Your Interior Design with a Chosen Colour Palette

When you start the interior design process of a home, it is all too easy to get carried away and buy lots of different items, only to find that none really match and that you have not stuck to a pre-selected colour palette. The very first thing that you should do is select the colours that you want to be featured in your room. We would recommend choosing a basic or neutral colour scheme that can be applied to all rooms and then you can play around with these colours and other design elements that go into the room to create a unique and personal space. A top tip of ours is to paint your ceiling a slightly lighter colour to the walls to give the room an airier feel to it.

Choose the Right Rug

When you are deciding on the interior design element of your room, you will want to make sure that you choose the right rug to add that finishing touch. When you find the right rug, it will tie your room together and establish the colour scheme that you have opted for. It will also add texture and bring together elements of the room that did not seem previously connected. A good rug will balance out a room. For example, a rug with neutral tones will bring balance to a very colourful room, while a textured rug will bring balance to a room that is filled with shiny surfaces. You will also want to think about the size of the rug that you are going to opt for and how your furniture will fit around the rug. Do you want the sofa to be on the rug? Just the front legs? None at all? Making sure you choose the right size will make things easier down the line as no one wants the hassle of having to return large items and swapping them for new ones.

Make Use of Plants

If you have been searching online for interior design ideas and flicking through design brochures, you will probably already have noticed that many of the interior design ideas that you see make a lot of use out of plants to add to the look and feel of a room. Our eyes are naturally drawn to items such as plants as they can add colour and life to any room, but you will need to remember to give them enough sunlight and look after them! If you are not very green fingered, then you may want to do some research beforehand to find what species of plants can be kept for a long time indoors and that do not need to be watered as often as other plants do. If you don't have the time to care for a plant, them make sure you don't opt for one that is high maintenance as while plants look great in any room, no one wants a dying plant to be the main focal point.

Choosing the Right Artwork

To complete a space, you will need to choose the right artwork that adds that final finishing touch. Choosing the right artwork for your theme can be quite tricky as there are a few common mistakes that people tend to make. This includes choosing artwork that is too small for the small which is then dwarfed by your furniture. If you are changing up the interior design of a larger home, then definitely choose artwork to reflect the space and remember that you can opt for grander pieces to make a bigger impact. Choose art that will work with the colours in your room and that will reflect a little bit of your personality as you don't want it to seem too generic.

Choosing the Right Textiles

Textiles are the perfect way to make your home feel warmer and more inviting. It is items such as pillows, blankets and curtains that will give your home a lived-in vibe to It, rather than a cold, show-room feel. Adding pillows and throws will add texture and a pop of colour to a room while choosing the right fabric can also add in lovely shine. Curtains are another essential textile that can really add to the atmosphere of a room, and we would recommend matching your curtains to other textiles in your room to bring everything in the room together.

Have a Feature Wall

One of the most popular interior design trends is a feature wall. If you are unfamiliar with a feature wall, this is usually present in rooms such as the dining room, bedroom and living room. A feature wall is often the largest wall in the room, and instead of painting this wall the same colour as the rest of the room, it is wallpapered instead with a fun, bold print that will act as its own focal point in your room. To make sure you get the right print you’ll want to look for a company like Fashion Interiors that offers a range of beautiful prints that are both beautiful and high quality. If you opt for a very bold option, this is exactly where you want to go.Everyone is sure to find the feature wallpaper that they are looking for from this brand.

Adding Mirrors to Your Space

No matter how small or large your space is, everyone wants to make their home feel that little bit bigger and more spacious. The easiest way in which you can achieve this is by using mirrors. Mirrors can manipulate space and light within a room and are perfect for those living in smaller homes. You will ideally want to put your mirror at around eye level as this will create an illusion of there being more space. You may also want to place a mirror opposite a window as this will allow natural light to bounce off it and create a lighter, airier space in your home.
