These days it seems almost everyone is a budding interior designer, with a passion for all things homely. The advent of social media has played a huge role in this and we have seen huge changes in the care and attention people are placing on their homes. Whether it be for themselves for their online profile, it doesn’t really matter. What matters is that there are so many ways to improve your home’s interior design that despite all the information and profiles dedicated to it, it can be difficult knowing where to start.
An online door company called Internal Doors UK wants everyone to have a home they are proud of and want to showcase so they have put together this little guide to help you get started with home improvements. Read on to find out more…
One way to improve the look and feel in an instant is to change something quite large but to make sure it’s an easy change to make. Changing your doors, for example, could seem like a big job but with the ease of ordering online, it’s a straightforward case of pulling off the old and screwing on the new. Doors play a much more important role than you might thing in the overall look of a house so it’s a good thing to get right.
Other quick wins you could have are to swap out accessories in a neutral room. For example, the addition of some brightly coloured throws, cushions and silk flowers to a beige, white or grey lounge will lift it immediately and won’t cost the earth either!
Pick a theme and stick to it
With so many choices out there, it is hard to know what you want to go for. Some days you might love a tropical theme, others it might be monochrome. The one thing that will confuse a room though and damage the way it looks is trying to have multiple styles in the same space. Pick a theme for each room (by all means choose a different one for each room!) and stick to it. Otherwise the different fashions will jar together.
A pure white settee or cream carpet might look the ultimate in chic in your eyes. But if you have a family with young children, a long-haired dog you take for muddy walks or any kind of clumsy or wobbly hand, it might not be the best idea to have such pale finishing! Think about how you want your spaces to be used and work that into the overall look. If you insist on having something less practical, maybe utilise things such as throws to protect them – that way you can remove them when you know it’s safe to do so!
The best thing you can do to improve your interior design is to find a style that you love and stay true to yourself. Pay attention to all the elements and stick to accessories that complement these styles and you’ll soon have a home to be proud of.
