Designing your own interior is a challenging thing. Not a professional? Do not worry, you can do it if you follow the basic rules. Designers would agree that these are the most important things that you should consider when it comes to home interior. Cluttering and over accessorizing can be fatal mistakes that will make the space look not so flattering. Read on and find out which are the 4 basic rules that you should consider if you want to design your interior like a pro!
The Rule Of Thirds
If you are artist or photographer, then you know what does this mean. And for the others, this rule determines the best place for placing an object. Draw imaginary lines on a picture vertically at 1/3 and 2/3, and horizontally at 1/3 and 2/3. Compositions with the subject placed on those lines, especially at the intersection of those lines, are the most interesting. In your home it can be implemented in this way: instead of placing an arrangement in the center of the shelf, try placing it 1/3 of the way in from the edge. That way, it will be more pleasing for the eye.
If you want to decorate the space, but not sure if you can achieve visual balance, then go for big items. A bunch of small items can look like clutter. It is always a better idea to place a big item instead of a few little ones. It will look “clean” and “decluttered” .
Add A Personal Note
Your home should reflect who you are. When you enter, you should have the feeling that you belong there. The best way to add a personal note is with decorations. Add something that reveals yourself, your interests and hobbies. If you are into gardening, then add some beautiful plants. Photographers should have a gallery of their own work. Some would say that styling an outfit can be related with styling a room. If you like modern, classy, casual, or boho, then this will probably be the choice for your room too.
When it comes to buying furniture, always go for comfort before style. Your home is a place reserved for peace and relaxation. And the most important thing you need for that is functional and comfortable furniture. Invest in good quality pieces. Trust me, you would not put style ahead of health. When your back hurts from that uncomfortable modern chair you would probably feel sorry for the wasted money.
