The Importance of Interior Design

Your home is your castle, so it is essential to have a beautiful interior that will make you feel great, too (especially when you have family or friends over). Our surroundings can affect our mood, so it is crucial that our living area reflects our style and personality. Furnishing our home is also great for letting our creative juices flow!

Avoid Overcrowding

One of the most common pitfalls of decorating your home is overloading with too much furniture (especially if you are pushed for space). To combat this, plan carefully about what pieces to invest in and avoid impulse purchases (which can be dangerous!). It is better to have only a few items that are functional but easy on the eye rather than filling out your rooms with random furniture scattered around.

For example, mirrored fitted wardrobes could make the most of the space in the bedroom rather than bulky standalone variants, making your room appear more spacious. Additionally, spend some time decluttering, be firm with yourself, and remove items that do not fit your desired aesthetic.

Mix and Match

One of the standard styles of home decor is purchasing matching furniture or sticking to one colour, however, step out of that box and apply an ‘eclectic’ look that combines a variety of different items that, in turn, creates a unique, curated appearance. Additionally, you can add a mix of contrasting colours and textures to produce a layered and eye-catching feel.

You can easily refresh your home by swapping furniture from different rooms or upgrading a few key pieces (coffee tables, chairs, or even your headboard).

Utilise Lighting

I have touched on the value of home lighting in a sophisticated home, and I still stand by those ideas – lighting can easily upgrade and transform your living area, creating ambiance with a simple flick of a light switch. Functional rooms, however, should be well-lit to ensure you know what you are doing – bathrooms, kitchens, home offices, or a study, for example.

In other parts of the home, you can play with lighting more, especially to achieve a relaxing vibe, such as the living room or bedroom, by using a softer and warm light. However, do not dismiss the advantage of natural light, especially if you have large windows – choose sheer voile panels or Venetian blinds to bring in a lot of outdoor light while keeping your privacy intact.

With these extra home decor tips under your belt, you will soon be able to upgrade your home decor to exactly how you want and also be the envy of your neighbours! Do you have any other tips and tricks to offer? Feel free to comment below and share!
