As the saying goes, ‘It takes a bit of work to make a house, a home.’ Taking a space and transforming it into something you can call your own involves not only aesthetics but also functionality – and this is certainly not an easy task.
From determining the right choice of colors for a room to choosing the right lighting fixtures to install, there’s a wide range of options to consider. This is where the interior design takes the forefront. Whether you’re recreating the look of an entire house, upgrading the kitchen space, or hanging the color of the living room, there’s a number of DIY tips that are worth considering. With that said, here are some to get you started off!
Your home is a place that should reflect you as a person – your personality, your lifestyle, your hobbies, and the things that are important to you. When it comes to interior design, there is no right or wrong. There is only what you want and what you don’t want. What’s important is that, at the end of the day, it’s a space that makes you feel happy and contented. You can take design cues from the latest trends, or get inspiration from classic designs, but always put your own spin to it. Make your space your own.
Create a mood board
Finding design inspiration for your home renovation can be a challenge. It’s tough to rack your brain for what would look good for your space, and what wouldn’t. That’s why it’s a good idea to have a mood board. Collect images, pictures, and photos that you feel should inspire your space and tack them onto your mood board. As you build your collection, you will start to realize the design or look that you would like for your space. It’s a great way to take inspiration from different sources and bring them together in one place.
Mix colours and fabrics
Matching and combining colors and fabrics can create interesting visual layers and textures. So don’t be afraid to explore a range of variations. Play around with colors of different contrasts and palettes, use different textured fabrics, and see which combinations are to your liking. Use your mood board to choose the color combination that you want to use. And one pro tip to keep in mind: a three-color combination is better than a two-color palette. It will give you more flexibility when it comes to achieving an aesthetically pleasing look.
Colors may change their appearance depending on the lighting. So before going ahead and applying paint on concrete, try them out first. You can do this by buying the paints that you’re considering and painting sample pots with them. Paint approximately A2-sized paint patches, on the lightest and the darkest walls of the same room, to see how the natural light affects the shade.
