When it comes to interior design, it can be quite a task, even for the professional. Each home is different and each homeowner has their own sense of style. It is your job to portray their personality through the decor pieces you choose. Creating a Pinterest board can be helpful to get you started on the right foot, but as we said, each home is different.
To help, we’re sharing a few secrets for interior designers or anyone looking to make some changes to their home decor.
1. Work With What You’ve Got
We know, you’ve probably heard this before and it seems like a basic rule, but we figured we would mention it anyways. What may seem like an eye-sore to one person, can be beautiful and creative to the next. Instead of trying to change things around completely and get rid of things, work with what you’ve got instead. Move things around to make it fit.
2. Large Frames Give The Space Life
If you have an empty wall, consider adding a large frame to add some depth into the space. Here at Frame It Easy, we can frame anything up to 42″ x 42″ in our wood style frames and 42″ x 62″ in our metal style frames. This gives you a lot of room to work with. Consider framing large paintings, art, or murals for the space to add some character without taking up a ton of room.
3. Add A Pop Of Color
While many people like to have neutral colors around their home, don’t be afraid to add a pop of color somewhere. Whether that be with our Ashford frame style in Hot Pink or adding some blue decorative pillows to the couch. A pop of color can be just what the room needs to liven it up a little. Plus, its fun! What’s wrong with that?
4. Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark
This may seem confusing after we just suggested adding a pop of color, but some interior designers tend to shy away from dark colors. Dark colors can actually bring your space to life. Consider adding an accent wall with a dark blue or even a midnight black. Add some fun art pieces to the wall to tie it all together.
5. Use The Natural Light To Your Advantage
If you are fortunate enough to have large windows or doors in your kitchen area, use them to your advantage! If privacy is not an issue, skip the window treatments to allow natural light into your space. This will not only literally brighten up your space, but will also make the room feel bigger.
When designing someone’s home, it’s a big project. Be sure to listen to things they want and the things they don’t in order to create the perfect home for them. Just remember, no project is bulletproof. There will be some things that go wrong, and that’s okay, in the end it will all work out!
