Interior Design Tricks To Make A Big Impact
When you hire a professional general contractor to take care of interior design work, you want to be able to make the most of the project. While they’re the professional, it’s your home and you want to contribute to the design.
This is the best way to end up with results you will love, for years to come. Getting proactive about your own design work is a great way to ensure that the final results go above and beyond what you hoped for.
Personalizing Your Home
You’d be surprised at what a difference it makes to use some of these essential interior design tips.
- Decorative mirrors can do so much for an interior space. Aside from adding to the visual aesthetics of the room, this adds light, as well as makes a smaller space look bigger. It’s an optical illusion but can help open up a space that otherwise looks and feels cramped.
- Lighter paint colors help a room feel larger and more open. It doesn’t mean you can’t use darker accents, a bold stripe, or décor. However, as a general rule, if you don’t want to have your interior space feel small or enclosed, stick with lighter and softer hues.
- When it comes to the kitchen, add a hanging pot rack. It’s both functional and attractive. It helps your kitchen feel homey yet still elegant. Plus, this frees up storage space in your cabinets that can be used for other culinary gadgets, utensils, and tools.
- Area rugs are ideal for softening up hardwood floors, especially for large surface areas. It’s not only a great way to decorate and add depth, it helps break up too much hard wood flooring. The good news is it will also help protect your hardwoods often in areas that get the greatest amount of foot traffic.
