Interior design is about making your room look beautiful, but it’s also about function. How can you decorate your home so that it serves both needs well? Here are some tips:
The First Thing To Do Before Decorating Your Room Is To Declutter
The first thing to do before decorating your room is to declutter. Remove everything from the room and put it in boxes, then sort through the boxes, throwing out anything that is broken or worn out. Put the rest of the stuff back into the room and make a list of everything you have, and how much space it takes up.
Consider The Color Scheme
The next thing to consider is the color scheme of your room. You need to choose colors that are calming and relaxing, as well as compatible with each other. The same goes for the room’s purpose; if it’s a bedroom, then you’ll want a peaceful tone of blue or lavender rather than something bright like neon yellow or hot pink.
While you can use many different hues in one space (and we encourage you do so!), avoid using too many at once–it can be overwhelming on the eyes! For example: if you’re using red as an accent color on a sofa chair cushion, don’t throw in some turquoise throw pillows too; instead opt for complementary shades like cream-white instead of tan/beige since these two shades complement each other better than they do themselves alone (which results in less visual noise).
Add Layers Of Lighting
The third tip is to add layers of lighting. You can do this by mixing different types of lights in your room, such as floor lamps or table lamps, wall lights or sconces, track lighting and even natural light from windows or skylights. The more layers you have the better because it will give depth to your interior design and make it look more interesting.
To create a balanced look when adding multiple sources of light consider using dimmers so that you can control the level at which each type of bulb shines – this works well for ambient lighting because it’s usually brighter than task lights (for example) but not as bright as ceiling fixtures
Use Mirrors By The Window
Mirrors are a great way to add light and make your room look bigger. If you have windows, try placing a mirror near them so that it reflects the sunlight into the room. Mirrors are also great for helping you see what’s behind you when getting ready in front of one!
If there isn’t any natural light coming into your space, consider using lamps instead of overhead lights–this will give off more ambient lighting rather than harsh shadows that can make even an average-sized space feel smaller than it actually is.
Mirrors also work well as focal points because they create depth within a room; if possible, place one at least 60 inches above eye level (for example: hanging above a sofa).
Add A Rug To Your Room
Adding a rug to your room is a great way to add texture and color. Rugs can be expensive, but there are many affordable options available. They can also be used in any room of the house, from bedrooms to living rooms and dining rooms.
When deciding what kind of rug you want for your interior design project, it’s important that you consider how big it will be (and how much space it will take up). For example: if you have a small apartment with only one bedroom but want some extra padding underfoot while sleeping at night because hardwood floors tend not be comfortable when barefoot; then buying an 8 x 10 foot rug would probably work best! On the other hand if we’re talking about setting up something larger like maybe an entire master suite; then perhaps opting for something more along those lines like 12 x 15 feet instead?
Make Sure There’s Plenty Of Natural Light
The next tip is to make sure there’s plenty of natural light. This can be achieved by opening your shades and blinds during the day, and closing them at night. In addition, if you have an extra room that faces the sun, use it as an office or reading nook where you can soak up some rays while getting stuff done!
Natural light has numerous benefits for your health and well-being:
- It helps maintain a good mood by boosting serotonin levels in the brain (which makes us feel happier).
- It helps with sleep cycles by regulating melatonin production (the hormone that regulates sleep). Melatonin is produced when it’s dark out–so being exposed to bright lights late at night will mess up this process if not blocked out with curtains or blinds.
Don’t Forget About The View
If you have a window in your room, make sure it’s well-placed. Many interior designers recommend placing windows on opposite sides of the room for balance and symmetry. However, if you have limited space and can’t fit two windows into your space, consider adding a large mirror instead.
Mirrors are great for reflecting light and creating an illusion of more space in a small area. If this isn’t possible either (or if you’re just not interested), consider installing blind or shade coverings over your windows instead–this will help keep out too much sunlight during the day while still letting some light in at night when needed!
If you can follow these tips, your room interior will look great. You’ll be able to relax in a clean and organized space that’s pleasing to the eye.
