Most of us have a natural taste for design especially when it comes to decorating our house interiors at a professional level. We look for plenty of design ideas and makeover tips from all possible sources and fold up our sleeves into the arena. When this arena is nothing great but the same old house we live across the years, there is possibly an indefinite number of areas that require style makeover. Starting from ceiling to walls and cabinets we need to squeeze our brains to get that professionally designed feel. Here are some tips to get this transition as easy as a cakewalk with fun and creativity overloaded.
Texturing the house interiors:
We have witnessed our house ceilings and walls with only plain paints of the same colors or perhaps contrast colors, and some of us would have improvised them with wallpapers and posters all these years. But now the trend is to add texture to plain surfaces inside houses to include a tinge of professional décor. Artistic wall panels are capable of infusing contextual art to the contemporary walls and are available in different patterns to create a dramatic impact from floor to ceiling. There are different boards for walls, ceilings, brick wall panels, etc. to cater to individual décor ideas.
Adding an element of boldness to small places at home
Small spaces inside the houses such as makeup rooms, dressing rooms, study rooms, storerooms are the most neglected areas when it comes to interior décor. But these small spaces have ample scope to enhance the overall beauty of the houses when concentrated well. The walls of such rooms can be given a style upgrade using Graphic prints, use of acoustic gypsum wallboards, floral wallpapers, etc.,
Styling the hallways with colors
Hallways are the transitional spaces at all homes as it leads our visitors to all other areas of the house. Dealing them with neutral pale shades would flatten the entire ambiance of the house. It is thus essential to make it as colorful and elegant as possible by affording ample colors. Subtle and vibrant golden yellow shades would give the feeling of contentment, soft leaf shades would bring in the gentle feel of freshness and greenery, and deep colors would conjure deep emotional responses. It is thus essential to step aside of one's comfort zone when choosing colors and to complement art collections for a chic hallway.
Décor with mixed up art collections:
There is no interior décor without showcase art pieces, wall hangings, and other collectibles. When we collect these show pieces to portray our taste for the interior design, we go by the rule of sticking to one style, such as either contemporary or modern. But the best idea for professional interior design is to mix up both old and new things from different periods in the same room by striking a balance between them. This way it is possible to make the house feel holistic while still honoring actual heritage.
Canvassing the walls
When we talk about interior décor, it is the walls that gain the maximum scope as its primary purpose is to hold decorative items to enhance the ambiance of the house interiors. Concentrate on decorating them with vibrant colors, subdued wallpapers, hanging show pieces of innate artwork, board walls to enhance their texture, depicting artwork performed by kids, etc., Filling up wall spaces with architectural features from different parts of the world is also a good deal of professional home décor.
Making use of fabrics wherever possible
Soft materials are generally used for sofa furnishings, to furnish bedroom furniture, cots, etc. To create a stand out interior design, one idea would be to furnish one or two of the walls in a room with soft fabrics with floral designs for a fresh ambiance and natural look.
Instead of hanging an art piece on a bare wall, try covering it with rich fabric background for a luxurious and shrouded environment. The advantage of including the walls with soft fabric is that they are capable of giving the walls a richness that wallpapers and colorful paints alone might not achieve.
Building up nature indoors
When it comes to interior décor, contemporary furniture, vibrant paints and art show pieces takes up a prominent role. But to enhance the natural look and feel of the house, it is mandatory to incorporate some unique elements that are naturally present in the outdoors. Growing houseplants inside the house allow a fresh lush of green to flow in and also looks soothing and convincing.
Apart from holding house plants, other ideas to make the house look natural is to décor bathrooms and countertops with limestone or red stone, having unpainted furniture that exposes woodwork, un-plastered walls that expose brickwork, etc.
Creating a constellation of colors
Sticking on to one theme and one color when it comes to home décor is no more fashionable. The trend in recent days is to include a bouquet of colors and items to decorate one single room. Let the curtains, furniture covers, and cushions, carpets, table wraps, etc., be in different colors; but make sure that, there is a connection between these arrays of colors to portray the room elegantly.
Let the light be the guiding star
When trying to decorate a room with vibrant colors and paints, the standard rule is to follow the direction of natural lighting. Sunlight alone can uplift the natural vibrancy of artificial paints. Paint the rooms that are facing north with bright colors, paint the rooms that are facing west with warm, soothing colors and paint the rooms that are south and east facing with neutral colors such as white or blue.
Keep changing the look of the house
Keep innovating and keep on improving the look of the home. Constant colors and décor ideas are boring and have a tendency to increase the age of the house. It is essential to get the house constantly evolving to make it a place of constant comfort and peace.
Gone are the days when people looked up for professionals to take ideas for interior decoration. With a little innovation and deep thought, it is possible for anyone to give their home a professionally designed feel that stays within their budget.
