In this age, lots and lots of people are leaning toward the idea of home decoration and taking up the field in the name of interior design. This has become a very popular and vastly opted curriculum in the field of arts, given people’s liking for design and application. The idea of designing homes has become so appealing that it is noted how a majority of students enrolling in specialized fields go on to become noted designers and decorators.
However, in order to refurbish your home and make it pop, you do need a few basic rules of aesthetic even if you lack a degree. First and foremost, have a good eye for detail. People have this false notion that stocking furniture and other miscellaneous items or furnishings in the house will work – but that is hardly the case. You should know that everything will not look good with just anything. If you place a recliner sofa in the living room and place it next to heavy furniture it may look overstocked and just tastelessly overwhelming. The concept that spacing and placement is a core key in design is often overlooked. You should just bear in mind that in order to maximize floor space or to make a room look spacious, the way you place furniture is most crucial.
If you place furniture which is bulky and overbearing closer to the entrance it will immediately become the focus of attention to anyone entering your home. It gives the eye a false impression that your room is small despite it being spacious. Therefore, keep lighter furniture closer to the entrance and heavier ones next to the walls.
Color your wall. People feel that adding bold colors to accent a wall in the room is too daring and pulls the focus away from other objects around. However, if you choose the right color shade that goes well with the rest of the settings and serves the purpose of adding energy and life, it is a great investment. You can even do it yourself making the project lighter on the pockets, but you must take heart in it. It is not as easy as it seems but if you do it with all your focus and attention, it will definitely turn out to look amazing!
