Ways To Give Your Interior An Update
Are you ready for a home refresh? Perhaps you have been living in the same place for years and are interested in changing your interior scenery. Or, maybe staying home under lockdown has meant looking at the same walls with lacklustre furniture, and you need some new internal aesthetics. Whatever your reason, right now is the best time to mix it up inside your home and make some changes to your decor.
Rely On The Experts
While you may have your own style, it is helpful to utilize the services of a professional decorator. This is especially helpful if you want to step outside of your comfort zone in terms of design and colour combinations. Perhaps you are not aware of what is available to you, and you need a little extra help. Alternatively, you are stepping into your first home as an adult and are ready to shed your milk crate shelving system and curtain room dividers.
Regardless of your motivation, a professional decorator will use their collective years of experience to shepherd you towards a beautiful new interior designed just for your unique preferences. Take the opportunity to talk to a decorator about textiles and colours or patterns you wish to try. Collect fabric and paint swatches. Place them in different areas in your home throughout the day to see how they look in different lighting.
Have fun with your decorator, and remember that open communication is essential to achieving the interior you dream of having. If the decorator makes some suggestions that you are not fond of, just say so. They want you to be happy in your home and satisfied with their service.
Make A Vision Board
Like so many people, you probably have a vision of what you want your dream home to look like. You may have been collecting pictures either physically or online. Create a vision board of your wishes. This will help you narrow down some of the things you are interested in doing. For example, it’ll be so much easier to come up with some solid potential Bathrooms designs if you’ve got some real inspiration right in front of you!
Pin up magazine cutouts, paper paint swatches, fabric samples, or any other items you have collected to put together a visual idea of what direction you want your interior design to go. This makes it easy to move paint swatches around to see what colours complement or contrast well with each other. You can overlap fabrics to visualize a sofa textile along with coordinating throw pillow fabrics. The options are limitless.
If you prefer, sites like Pinterest are brimming with inspiration. They are easy to use, and you do not have to worry about adding any unnecessary clutter to your home in the design process. Utilizing such a resource means you can source from virtually hundreds of thousands of different pages to give your interior decorator a better idea of what you are interested in doing.
