Useful Home Interiors Ideas
Post by : favouritehomes
Interior designing is a science as well as an art that deals with creating functional spaces within a building. These functional spaces are both fashionable as well as decorative creations within the home.
As space becomes scarce in cities, it is becoming increasingly important for interior designers to get creative with their ideas and incorporate them into homes that will enable you to store things better – but in a more creative and stylish manner. It also helps you create visual images of large spaces while making optimal use of the space available.
Here are some great ideas on making your interiors look chic and still functional:
Visual effects matter a lot and going with light colours creates an airy atmosphere that refreshes the mood. This is aside from creating a sense of spaciousness within your home. Darker shades can be used when trying to create an enclosed cozy atmosphere.
If you want to brighten up a room, create more light and make the room look larger, mirrors are the perfect answer. Use ornately designed frames for the mirror to give it a decorative dimension too.
Hang your curtains as high as possible. This not only adds height and space to your room but also makes it look more graceful. Avoid large colourful prints as they take away the focus from the rest of the room. Soft pastel shades are perfect for the summer while dark jewel colours are great in winters. To ensure they match with your walls and furniture though!
Warm woody tones on furniture look great and are eternally in fashion aside from amping up elegance levels. A little bit of varnish and a change of upholstery and your furniture can keep renewing itself over the years!
Apartment Living means finding imaginative ways to store and stow away things; furniture makes a very handy place for storage. You can get coffee tables with enclosed spaces underneath for storing your magazines, toys, etc. Same goes for beds, couches and side stools. You can even have tables that fold down when not in use. Staircase undersides make excellent storage spaces and can be turned imaginatively into shelves to display items.
Walls provide an amazing space to add shelves to display your mementos and curio items. DIY shelves come in attractive geometric shapes of matching colours. Or if you have space constraints, go for glass shelves which create a semblance of airiness.
Adding a touch of indoor plants completes the look of an elegant home – aside from adding a Feng Shui element too!
