Home interior design tricks

Sometimes the smallest things make the biggest impact. It could be the addition of a mirror, a painting, a lamp, or even a plant.
Maybe you want to soften your walls, brighten a room, or add some warmth to your living space.

Take a look at these smart design tips and see how you can get inspired!

 1.Paint the rooms

Paint smaller rooms in softer and lighter colors to help make the room appear larger. The one above is a great example of how to make the most of a small space.

A room of this size has a tendency to appear small, but the large windows, light colored walls and extensive use of mirrors not only reflect the natural light coming from the doors and windows, but the use of mirrors also gives the Optical illusion of space, making the room appear larger than it actually is. On the contrary, dark colors will make a room appear smaller. Despite the abundance of natural light and the strategic placement of the mirrors, this room in a darker shade would feel more boxed in.

 2.The use of mirrors in interior design

Use decorative mirrors to instantly add light to your living space.   As seen above, mirrors can also be used to make a small space appear larger. For large rooms, or any room with a more limited amount of natural light, mirrors placed directly in front of the windows will add instant light.

In interior design decorative mirrors can also be used instead of art to fill the empty space on the wall. Large or small, mirrors add light and dimension to your living space.

 3. Mix designs and textures

Mix old and new, expensive and cheap.   There is nothing wrong with placing family heirlooms next to your modern sofa. All good interior decorators will tell you that the most important aspect of decorating your home is that it reflects who you are, your personality, and your style .

Your grandfather’s old Chippendale desk tells a story. Tell the story of your past. The modern sofa you fell in love with and just had to buy also tells a story, your present story, and there is no reason why the present and the past cannot coexist very well together in interior design.

The same can be said for art. Now, you may not want to put a Salvador Dalí painting on the same wall next to a Monet, but there’s no reason why it can’t be in the same room. With fabrics, whether furniture, rugs or pillows, various colors and patterns can bring warmth and texture to your living space.

4. Fall into something a little more comfortable

Covers often get a bad rap, but they are truly wonderful things. They can serve as a means of changing the look of your furniture to reflect the seasons.

These easily removable covers allow you to have a sophisticated look without having to worry about people constantly dirtying or spilling on your furniture. The covers are ideal for rooms frequently used by children. In this photo, the white covers give the space a casual, elegant and comfortable, easy and sophisticated air.

5. Wicker baskets

The wicker baskets are an economical and elegant way to add storage to any room. The baskets can be used to store and display books, architecture and decorating magazines, toys, towels, and blankets to name a few. Place a couple of small wicker baskets on top of your kitchen to display them beautifully and store your fruits and vegetables.

6. Use what you already have to decorate

We all have items in our possession, probably stored in boxes somewhere and not given a second look. Your house needs some accessories. Instead of rushing to the store, take a good look at what you already have. Wood, metal, acrylic or silver trays can be placed on top of toy racks, tea carts, trunks, nightstands and coffee tables to add texture and dimension. Arrange candles on them, pictures or stack books on top of them. Plates can be hung on the wall to create wonderful art. Children’s book art can be framed and hung in nurseries, nurseries or in their bathrooms. You will be amazed at what you can do with what you already have!

7. Add a potholder hanging from your kitchen.

Kitchens are meant to be warm and inviting. We spend much of our time in them, whether it be preparing meals, serving meals or entertaining. A hanging pan rack is useful elegance.

Kitchens are designed to feel like they are in constant use and a hanging pan rack certainly makes one feel this way. Besides looking so wonderful, (there are many sizes and styles available) it leaves free space in the closet to store other items. Rarely does anyone complain about having too much storage.

8. Respect the environment

Adding plants to your living space is another way in interior design that will bring life to any space in the house . Add to each room, small or large, few or many.

Plants are an inexpensive accessory to your space and add color and texture. Not only are plants beautiful, but many can clean the air and humidity in your home, providing balance. They can absorb pollutants and remove harmful gases from the air. No home should be without these wonderful greens!

9. Paint or upholster your shelves

This instant shot of color will bring sparkle and re-energize any room – it’s another interior design trick. It’s amazing how something as simple as a coat of colored paint can instantly energize and transform your space. This library would be plain and ordinary, without this bright blue. Perhaps the easiest and cheapest way to transform your boring space is by applying a coat of paint in some unexpected place .

Libraries are a great place to start, as you don’t need to paint a large area. Other fun places to add a pop of color include fireplaces, closet interiors, hallways, and ceilings.

 10. Use rugs to cushion hardwood floors

In interior design, rugs provide warmth and can add great texture , color, and personality to your living space. Hardwood floors are beautiful and easy to maintain, but they lack the comfort that carpeted floors offer, especially in the colder months. Rugs can add fun and functionality to your living space.

Use several of different patterns and fabrics together to show your character. You can also add several rugs of the same pattern and different fabric or textures but the same color. The possibilities are endless. You can change the rugs to reflect the seasons that use warmer tones and fabrics for the colder months and lighter for the hotter days of the year.

There are many beautiful, cotton, washable rugs that are ideal for homes with children. There really is no reason why a home with young children can’t be a stylish one too.
