Top Interior Design Tips

Creating a space that makes a good first impression on guests is something that every homeowner wants. But when it comes to designing your house to create a home, there’s more than meets the eye. If you’re like those homeowners who can’t decorate their home without checking Pinterest, we feel you. Fortunately, this is something you can develop and hone over time.

A great interior requires materials that are in line with the space’s architecture. How do you want a space to feel? Here are tricks to help you hone in on your style.

Nail the Floor Plan

You know you only get one shot at building your home and once the walls go up, that’s it. Therefore, a poor floor plan decision can have a big impact on how you use your rooms. Floor plans are useful to help design furniture layout, wiring systems, and much more.

A floor plan should accommodate all your home’s functionality and aesthetics. Your first consideration when you are selecting a house plan should be size. The result may not be to scale yet, but this step will help you afford problems along the way. While it may not be a concern now, think of green cost savings.

The Power of Three

If you’re looking to decorate a room with a splash of color, use the “rule of three.” The rule dictates that items are more attractive when they are in a group of three. So, the objects complement one other, consolidating the harmony and not breaking the balance. This ratio can be applied to all interior and exterior colors that you choose for your home.

Our brains just love odd numbers because they challenge us mentally. As a result, you can implement an attractive interior design with three items in different shapes. The rule is very popular in interior design, to be sure, but is also a mainstay in graphic design. It also dictates layout, size and shape of objects, and the work triangle of a kitchen. For instance, you can display different tables of ping pong, although air hockey wins in our opinion so the kitchen can also be used as entertainment area.

Make Flooring Cohesive

Just like in music, you need some repetition and rhythm throughout your home. To keep different surfaces “cohesive,” you need to keep everything inside the same colour family. When decorating a small space, remember to select one significant tile and utilize it sparingly. Think about repeating variations of the same patterns or textile styles throughout your home. Alternately, all rooms could be connected, but there are partial barriers between spaces.

The paint color, accent colors, lighting and furniture flow from room to room. Finally, avoid sets of furniture. It’s much more interesting to have a mix.

Balance Your Color Scheme

A little color in your life reflects your personality and lifts your mood. You can decorate your house by choosing fabrics and furnishings in colors that suit your personality, too.

The 60:30:10 rule is a famous interior design concept that can help you create a balanced color scheme. 60, 30, and 10 refer to the percentages of your design that each will make up. The main color should represent 60% of the color used in your room design. Another smart method used by interior designers is to copy the colors from a fabric print.

Use Color Blocking

It’s easy to be timid when it comes to paint colors, but it’s time to be bold. It’s time to juxtapose contrasting colors in different blocks, shapes, and lines. This colorful trend is a hit in the world of interior design. Color blocking is the pairing of diverse colors to make a major statement. The ‘blocks’ allow small rooms to be broken up into separate uses.
