Interior designing is the most exciting yet challenging task once you have a home ready to move in. However, is there any standard process to follow when it comes to home interior designing? If you interact with any experienced designer, you will realise that they don’t follow any specific rule or guidelines for the process. Definitely, they take inspirations from different interior décor ideas. It all depends on how creatively one can think and implement these ideas. Following your intuition is crucial in this aspect.
However, if you are planning to decorate your home interiors on your own, ensure that the approach taken is up to the mark. Here are few essential tips to make the home interior decoration better and appealing:
Pick the right paint colour, but it must be the last stage of decoration
Surprised? Picking the paint colour right at the beginning may create some limitations to the designing part. It may not be the ideal option to consider. There are limitless options available when you go out to pick the colours. There are different shades, tones and tints for every single colour you would find in there. Remember, each one of these colour tones will look different from one home interior to another. It is mainly because of the varying light sources that reflect on the walls to create the ultimate impression. What may look great on your wall would never come with assurance to look perfectly rippling on your neighbour’s house interior. You would always look for shades that can best complement your artwork, rug, upholstery and everything that’s used for interior decoration purpose. Picking the colour can be done best, if the home décor items are actually present in the interior space.
Create some free space for your furniture to breathe
It would never be a great idea to overcrowd the room with a lot of furniture and other items. Keep some free space to let your furniture items breathe. For that perfect gracious living, you need to manoeuvre some space with much ease. Never fill the space with lots of furniture items. Rather, have fewer but great quality and unique designer furniture pieces. This will make the interior home furnishing look sober and breathable.
The height of artworks must be appropriate
You must ensure that the artworks are placed at the right height. Visit any museum or gallery and you would find artwork being hanged or placed perfectly at the midline, while being 55-60 inches from the floor. This ensures for the best of the viewing experience. If you have a room with high ceilings, there can be some kind of eagerness to hang the artwork higher. But remember, the artwork placement distance must depend on the level of the human eyesight and not on the scale of the structure.
Being too theme-oriented can prove to be harmful
Please, don’t be too theme oriented for your interiors. You will end up lacking individuality and uniqueness. Try to look for fusion settings without congesting your interior space. Take reference from different themes, but don’t consider any single option for the entire home interior. Integrate a couple of themes to create something unique and innovative. You must select the right star to make it the perfect focal point for anchoring your room. The other items will play a secondary role in the process. If you plan to make every single item take the focal point of attraction, the ultimate result would be creating a dull visual noisy scenario.
