7 Cool Interior Design Ideas for your new House
High Hung Curtains
If you have a small studio, this is the hack for you. Everyone loves a big room with huge glass windows, and by hanging curtains just a little bit higher than their usual place, your small studio with four-foot windows begins to appear dramatically larger.
Creating illusions of a larger interior is the most important thing when it comes to getting that much needed extra space in your room, and curtains are your easiest fix considering the skyrocketing prices of mirror panels.
People often underestimate the power of being neutral wall colors and minimally decorated corners and you don’t want to be one of those people. Sure a room with all your paintings on its walls has its own appeal, but when we talk about luxury, we are looking for that mystery and class that leaves people wanting for more.
So, don’t overburden the rooms with heavy couches, paintings, and over the top wall colors and designs, instead, team up the couch with glass top tables and neutral white walls.
The transparent table surface along with the walls in white gives your room much more light and tidy feel.
Mixing up the themes
Having a certain theme in your mind when you are willing to redecorate your place is great, but don’t be afraid to experiment with it. Because your house reflects your personality, be sure to mix things up here and there to capture your essence to the fullest. Be bold while teaming up the antiques with the latest so long as it validates the color scheme. This can actually work in your favor and boost up your ordinary living space into the luxury apartment of your dreams. Just be sure to keep the decors tidy with proper spacing and you should be good to go. Bonus points if you team up with wallpapers in a storytelling way.
Let there be light
Perceived space is directly proportional to how well lit the room is. If that is confusing, don’t worry, just make sure that your room is not dimly lit with dark-hued walls. Remember that dull colors absorb light, which was not enough with dim bulbs in the first place, only to give your room the appearance of dark dungeons. What you want is a spacious living space so put in as much light as you possibly can. White reflects light should be your motto while choosing wall paints as we need the light to be well reflected every corner of the room.
The justified rug ruckus
We all love the comfort of not having to keep our foot on cold flooring in winters, and what is better than comfort teamed up with style? Nothing! Rugs are a very important part of a classy house because they enhance the beauty by not just their texture or color, but warmth and ease of cleaning as well. Patterns are to be carefully selected to match the theme of your space just right. Easy to maintain cotton rugs are an ideal pick for almost everyone.
Bathrooms are a place that should never be overlooked! You can tell more of a person by how well kept his bathroom is than his living space. So pay attention to the smallest part of your house as this is the place where you don’t necessarily have to constrain yourself to shades of white but can play with bolder hues with appropriate lighting, of course.
Because white has an appeal like no other, you can simply add beautiful geometric patterns to the white background. Additionally, the need to install appropriately sized fixtures can never be stressed enough.
Trash where it belongs
Decluttering your space should be a priority when considering living in lux. Give out the stuff you don’t need, recycle what you think can be of use and begin leaning towards a minimalist lifestyle. It sure is hard to get rid of that bicycle you last rode eight years ago and if you don’t have any plans to ride it any time soon, sell it. Apart from making that extra cash, you will be delighted to find out how big your space really looks. Having only something lying here and there makes your house look so much bigger, better, modern and luxurious.
