Interior Design Tips

  • #1 – Planning is vital if you are to spend your money wisely and not make costly mistakes – Think about the overall look, style and feel that you are going for. Why not look through magazines or Pinterest for inspiration.
  • #2 – If you are stuck for inspiration for a scheme, take a look at artwork/a fabric/an accessory you like, and base your colours around this. It is much easier to match a paint colour to artwork, than the other way around!
  • #3 – Know what’s staying and what’s going– you need to know what you will have in the room as then you can build your scheme around it much more easily.
  • #4 – Just as interior designers do, try and get samples of all the ideas you have for a room, and create your own mood board. This is just a fancy way of saying gather it all together you that you can see at a glance whether things work or not in the scheme before you buy – you can also estimate the price and budget accordingly.
  • #5 – Ask advice– don’t be afraid to use in house interior designers in shops as they can give you some great ideas. If your budget allows you could ask an interior designer to visit your home – a lot of designers offer a consultation only package where you can get on the spot ideas for minimum cost (some will also be able to source items for you for less so they can be money well spent!). You will also no doubt be shown ideas that maybe you haven’t thought of before that will make all the difference to your space.
  • #6 – Think about how many people live in your home, and if you often have guests, think of them too – have enough seating at the dining table and in the living areas for them.
  • #7 – Think about scale– if you have a large room, then go for larger patterns as they will feel more to scale in the space – smaller patterns can work well as accents but not on main walls as they will feel too busy etc….
  • #8 – Make the most of every room in your house– think about how you can utilise rooms, and don’t necessarily go with standard uses – many more people nowadays are creating a family room/playroom instead of a dining room, or a home office instead of a spare bedroom. Changing your scheme to fit your needs will maximise your homes potential.
  • #9 – Don’t be afraid to think outside the box– this is your home, so make it unique to you.
  • #10 – Know your budget- and allocate money to specific parts of the design so you are less likely to overspend. You can still make massive changes with a few pounds.
