Not sure how to start designing your home? We’re here to help! We know firsthand how hard it can be to know where to start and how to start designing your home’s interior. So, we’ve rounded up a few of our basic steps to making your house look the way it should! It’s a lot easier than you may think to design your own space, so start by following a few of our simple design tricks!
You can never go wrong with a white living room.
White rooms have been all the rage for a while now, and I don’t see that trend ending any time soon. White paint makes a room feel open, airy, and bright, while providing the perfect backdrop for whatever accent colors you choose. And if your tastes change often, you won’t have to repaint to match your latest design choices.
Lighting can make or break your design.
There is nothing worse than feeling like you are under interrogation lights. There are many ways to address this. Adding dimmers to your switches is relatively easy, and try to vary the heights of lighting in a room. You don’t want everything on the same plane. Use soft pink light bulbs for a flattering glow. In the next picture of this amazing kitchen, you will notice ceiling lights, pendant lights, and then task lighting under the range hood.
Add architectural interest to the space.
There is no better way to elevate your room and increase the value of your home then by adding architectural details. There are many ways to achieve this look. Adding wainscoting, crown molding, or ceiling beams are some great examples.
Choose a variety of seating.
No more matching sets! If you already own a matched set, try repainting some of the pieces or moving pieces to another room. For example, a night stand can be an end table in your family room.
Browse through home pictures, and you’ll be hard pressed to find one that does not contain some greenery or some fresh flowers. Potted plants add softness, and flowers add life to a room.
