How many rooms do you have in your house? Do you find it frustrating to try and add decor to all of them? Sure, we want all of the rooms in our home to look picture-perfect right out of a Home Sense magazine, but actually accomplishing that can be a daunting task and a never ending series of re-designing every room. Let’s make it easier! I’ve put together a list of ways to make every room look picture perfect, to your own taste!
1. Use Mirror’s
Decorating with mirror’s will give any room a face-lift. They help rooms appear larger, lighter and more open. Placing a mirror across or diagonally towards a window will allow natural light to reflect across the entire room, making it appear larger.
2. Update your tiling
In your bathroom or kitchen, tiling is often one of the main focal points of the room. Upgrading your tiling will drastically change up the space. Notice how in the image below, the gold detail accents the cabinet hardware, in turn tying the whole room together.
When you think accessorizing, you may think clutter, but that isn’t always the case. Adding accessories to a room will help you explore creativeness and allow a room to feel more ‘homey’! The image below displays a great example. Notice how the blanket ladder doesn’t add additional clutter, but helps add a little extra coziness to the room.
4. Add greenery
Ask any interior designer, and they’ll tell you that one of the easiest ways to ‘beautify’ a room is to add greenery or florals. Notice in the photo below how much the plant adds to the room? Without it, the room has a lot of natural light in itself, but the greenery adds a certain element that brightens the entire room.
5. Embrace Natural Light
f you’ve got it, flaunt it. Natural light is desirable for a reason; it makes every room feel calming and open, and makes things a lot simpler for your overall design scheme. This photo shows how bright and airy the room feels, despite being filled with furniture. It’s all about the placement and use of natural light from the windows.
6. Experiment and use your own creativity
Every home we love has one thing in common: creativity. Anyone can fill a house with amazing, high end furniture, but for a truly beautiful space, it’s important to let your imagination take control.
7. Add Texture
Textiles help break a room up and add visual interest. A great way to explore textile creativity is by using area rugs, curtains, pillows and throws etc.
8. Reduce Clutter
A quick clean can go a long way. Getting rid unnecessary clutter will make any room appear larger and more inviting. In every room in your house, finding ways to hide or get rid of unnecessary things, is one of the best ways to help create a sense of beauty in your space.
9. Add splashes of colour
Though I’m a huge fan of neutral interior palettes, adding colour to your space will help the room pop while adding your own creative touch. The photo below is a great example of how adding pops of colour will transform any room and give it that personalized touch.
