Interior Design Tips for Your Home

When it comes to designing or re-designing the inside of your home in Lexington or Columbia, SC, selecting your styles, colors, and furnishings can all seem a little overwhelming. Interior design, while challenging, is one of the most rewarding ways to turn your house into a home when finished. With some helpful interior design tips for decorating your home, you’ll be able to totally transform the inside of your house into a dream come true with some simple furniture staging, color consultation, and decorating tips and tricks.

Keep Wall Colors Light and Natural

Consider choosing neutral colors like grays and beiges, especially on the first floor. This allows for more decorating flexibility; you’re not bound by any one style of furniture. You’ll be able to switch accessories such as love seats, paintings, and tables. Having a neutral tone on the walls will make updating easier in the long run, when future design and re-decorating ideas strike. If you have two small rooms close together, keeping the walls neutral by painting them the same color will also help make them appear larger. e.d.’s paint & decorating offers professional color consultation in South Carolina. Color is an essential part of your interior design.

Let the Sun Do Its Thing!

Allowing natural light into your home will not only increase the mood and levels of energy in the home, but will also help to warm the home during the colder months. Window coverings should be designed to fit in the rooms’ theme, whether it is modern, traditional, elegant, or casual. If you have a room that gets lots of light, opt for colors that won’t fade. The most recommended lightweight fabrics are cotton, linen, and silk blends, because they tend to hang freely and wear well. To keep those windows sparkling and beautiful, you can always contact e.d.’s paint & decorating for Hunter Douglas window treatments in South Carolina.

Make Sure Your Furniture Aligns Properly

When choosing your sofas and chairs, make sure they “speak” to each other. With proper furniture staging, your home can look like a masterpiece from the pages of a magazine. When placing love seats and chairs, make sure they align in a “U” shape or an “H” shape, to ensure easy conversation and the best possible flow for the room.

All about Mirrors

Hang at least one mirror in each room! Besides their functional uses, mirrors add light and dimension to a room. Having a mirror in each room will make the room appear larger and significantly brighten the room when hung perpendicular to a window. Be sure not to hang your mirrors directly opposite from the windows or it will bounce the light directly back out the window.

Designing and re-designing your home does not have to be stressful. With a few helpful tips, sprucing up your home can fun and easy. Find your style, know what you like, and you will find that your vision makes your house your home. e.d.’s paint & decorating in Lexington and Columbia, SC offers our experience and expertise to your interior design project – a perfect fit to your style and your budget.
