People spend lots of money getting perfect looks for their houses and hiring interior designers. However, they forget one most important thing that decorating a house does not need an interior designer; rather just aesthetic sense. Because, whenever it comes to interior designing everyone has ideas popping in their minds, but most are just reluctant to implement them. They should remember that all interior designers used to be ordinary like them; they only got this position through implementing their ideas. Moreover, no one can know better about the home then people themselves.
Getting started with interior designing is very easy. First thing requires is an overall evaluation of the place. After all spaces for necessities are taken into account, only then can you get started thinking how to décor them. Anyone can decorate a big house with lots of space, but problem arises when space is limited. With limited space it’s best to avoid filling all places, and different techniques can be used to make them appear bigger.
First of all while putting carpets in hallways or stairs, some space should be left around corners so they appear bigger. Another trick to decorating small homes is to make sure curtains are covering walls from top to bottom which will make the room look higher. In addition to this furniture placed in room should not over crowd it. Instead you should only use the furniture you need. Living or dining rooms should have a small sized center table so they appear more spacious.
In small homes walls should be kept white, because this enlightens rooms. If you dislike white walls, at least ensure you use a light shade of some other color. Dark shades and coors will absorb light and make your small home seem even more cramped.
There is another cool experiment that can be done with walls, and that is to have patterns at walls. There are many wall stickers available on the market which can be pasted on walls, or self drawn. However, in both cases patterns should be at outer corners of walls. This will not only bring color to room, but also keep white wash undisturbed.
The best thing people can do with their small rooms is to keep them clean first. An untidy messed up room will never look beautiful, no matter how much expensive accessories or furniture are there. It’s always better to begin with basic things like cleanliness and maintenance, as only then can best results be achieved.
