So you’re ready to remodel your home. But with the invention of Pinterest, how can you possibly choose just one interior design style? You want it to be hip and modern but also comfortable and cozy. And with all the ideas floating around your head, it’s hard to make any decisions at all to get you moving forward.
Well we’re here to help. Here are just a few of our favourite interior design ideas to try out on your home.
Low Furniture = Lots Of Height
It seems like a weird oxymoron, but low furniture can and will make your room feel taller. If you’re working with a smaller living room that’s maybe not connected to other rooms, using this trick can be super important in creating space visually. The use of low furniture can also be integrated into any style, so it’s a great idea for any home design plan.
Embrace The Feature Wall
If you’re going for rich colours with cozy furniture a great way to bring a spin and brightness to a room is using a feature wall. This is an easy way to make a warm coloured room feel luxurious or even bring a cool-toned colour scheme an interesting and unique spin. Make sure that there aren’t too many patterns within the furniture, to ensure that nothing conflicts.
Let Nature In
Fans of white, clean room designs will love this trick to warm up the room without bringing in too much colour. Not just bringing in plants, but also incorporating live edge wooden tables or recycled material can bring a really homey and comfortable feel to a modern, minimalist design.
Work With Texture
You might be making the common mistake of focusing more on the look, colour, and placement of pieces over the texture of them. And that’s okay, but paying special attention to the texture of materials and fabrics can do a lot for a room. Not only does it have different effects on how people see a room, it’s also important in bringing balance to a room just as colour and other elements would.
Mix and Match
All interior design should be customized to your personal taste, so don’t feel like you need to fit into a specific style for it to be a good design. The best design is one that reflects you, so don’t be afraid to bring together contrasting colours – think opposites on the colour wheel – or even contrasting design styles like modern and rustic by bringing in elements of both.
Be Creative With Curtains
Curtains may be the last thing on the list of things to do, but using curtains in creative interior design could be the answer to your design woes. Using a floor length curtain to cover a wall will not only look luxurious, but also help to focus the eye on the focus point of the room. It’s a simple – and relatively inexpensive – way to bring a new twist to a feature wall.
