If you have just finished building your dream home or have moved into a new space, interior design and its seemingly inherent complexities must have you bewildered. While many people have a sense of the style they like, it is another thing to translate it to shopping for design elements and furniture. Here are some simple interior décor tips to revamp your home and give it a new stylish allure.
Windows often go ignored when a homeowner is interior decorating but as any professional will have you do, always have a concept at play when it comes to windows. Choose blinds or drapes that match, contrast or compliment your interior décor and use plants, rugs, and even furniture like a wicker chair or two next to the windows to make them into functional spaces in your rooms as well. If you have a weekend off you can easily follow a YouTube video and construct a window seat with a few basic carpentry skills.
If you are a book lover, consider using them as a major décor element in your living room or bedroom. Install a variety of shelves including floating shelves so you can add more dimension to any space. Breaking up the conventional way of stacking books vertically or horizontally is a wonderfully contemporary concept so add vases, glass figurines, dog portraits, book and movie memorabilia, or even flowers and foliage to make shelves look more alluring.
You can also go as far as to create a reading nook with atmospheric additives such as a diffuser, candles, cozy blankets, pillows, and a great reading chair or two. Reading nooks are incredible conversation starters if someone comes over and they can provide relief after a long and stressful day.
Everyone is used to a functional entryway that generally has a coat hanger, a key holder, a rug, or basic furniture. Create a unique entryway incorporating large art pieces, a massive mirror to catch the eye, and an abundance of foliage to create a welcoming environment. An entryway apart from the exterior of the house is someone's first impression as a visitor so it needs to show your distinct personality right away.
Some people have issues with water leakage in their roof and this can create odor along with splotches on the walls or peeling off of the paint so consult a roofing company before the damage worsens. If your walls look horrible, no amount of décor will help.
If it has been a long time since you've had your couch or armchair's upholstery changed, it might be time to spruce up your old furniture by changing the texture and patterns on it. An even simpler and more cost-effective version of this would be to change out your pillow covers and that includes throw pillows as well. Investing in new, comfortable, and visually gorgeous bedding or throw blankets can impart a Hygge vibe to your space.
