When moving into a new home or renovating your current one, you tend to over complicate ideas when it comes to decor ideas. You want the interior to be inviting and easy on the eye without being over the top with your design. Making simple changes to your home decor can make a big difference in providing a simple yet effective look for your home.
Here are some simple decor ideas that you can utilise without needing professional help or large expenditure that can help you towards creating the perfect interior.
Choosing the right colour scheme for your decor is probably one of the most important aspects when it comes to home design. You need to ensure that colour suits correctly with the living space you’re decorating and it doesn’t downgrade the room size or effect lighting in the room. A good way to decide is by exploring other ideas on social platforms such as Pinterest or Instagram. Alternatively, utilise colour wheels to understand which colours match best.
A messy room means a messy mind and having a large amount of clutter in your room can be bad for yourself as well as guests. Sometimes, less is more so try to be selective with the decor that you choose for your rooms. Your living room may just need a luxury coffee table next to your sofa and the odd armchair for the simple look. For the icing on the cake, a rug can provide the perfect touch.
In every room, consider having a focal point that is the star attraction of the room. Whether it’s a feature wall, large ornament or piece of furniture, make it the highlight so it doesn’t clash with other features. Try not to add too many items that are similar in attraction as it can create conflict between others features. Where possible, make the most of the lighting to promote the interest even further for the item.
Natural lighting has a big influence on how your interior can look. With the right decoration, your windows can be impactful in dividing spaces and complimenting the rest of your design. Choosing the correct drapes or blinds can help to control lighting and can add depth and height to the inside of your room. Homeowners tend to make the mistake of dressing up their windows a little too much. Adding photo frames and plants on the window sill can block natural light as well as disrupt the dressing that you already have on your windows.
Designing or renovating your home doesn’t have to be complicated. All it requires is a plan and structure to make decorating seamless in design. Take into consideration what your theme for the room is expected to be and work around this. Even the finer details such as what type of designer sofa you choose will impact how the rest of your room looks and can either disrupt it or compliment it.
