Your home is a reflection of yourself. Therefore, many people try to make their homes as beautiful as they can to show the value and love they have for their home. There are many different opinions about what is the best way to spruce up a home’s interior, but here are just a few of the best tips from our experience in interior design.
Keep the Walls Light
One of the best ways to spruce up your home and give it a beautiful and fresh look is to give it a fresh paint. But, if you are tempted to paint your walls dark, or a bright color, stay away. The best way to give your home a fresh look is to keep it a light or neutral color. A neutral color will make the room feel bigger, and will also help keep the room feeling light, even when it isn’t. Neutral walls also give you a lot of flexibility in decorating your home, which means that you can change up your decorations and furniture often.
The Seating Area
Next, you’ll want to focus on the seating area in your home. This is typically where people will gather, so you’ll want to make sure that the arrangement of furniture will spark conversation. There are a few different ways to arrange furniture, but just be sure to have your furniture facing each other.
Next, you’ll want to consider where you place your artwork. Many people tend to place artwork too high on the wall so that it ends up looking funny. You want to arrange all of your artwork at eye level so that you can focus properly on the artwork. Another option is to arrange artwork in a gallery wall, but to keep it connected to the furniture rather than the wall itself.
Lastly, one of the best things to ensure a home looks updated is the lighting. Lighting makes a world of difference and adding lighting to illuminate your artwork is one of the biggest differences you can make. Be sure to add a few different types of lighting: ambient, task, and accent. Ambient lighting is for providing overall illumination, while task is for certain things, like reading or over a kitchen island. Accent is to highlight certain things in your room, like artwork or is for purely decorative means.
