Interior decorators spray pixie dust on the look of a house. Vibrant colors and abstract designs bring out a different aura of the house despite the unchanged infrastructure. Architects at Janaharsha Estates and Constructions suggest 10 simple makeover tips to restore your home’s charm:
- Wall Colors
While painting your walls the thumb rule is, the lighter, the better. Basic colored walls help you to play around with the accessories. The idea here is to have the freedom to design a room the way you want. In case your home isn’t extremely spacious, try identically painting the walls of adjacent rooms. It makes your house look big.
- Windows and Sunshine
In case your room has a window, be creative with it. You could get it closed, plastered, painted and hang the television for a three dimensional effect. On the other hand, if it brings in good sunlight, you can use light-weight cotton curtains or maybe get the wooden boundary of the window painted in contrast and not use curtains.
Mirrors bounce off light around the room. This way, your room appears to be larger. However, architects at Janaharsha Estates and Constructions expressed that positioning determines the outcome. Perpendicular to the mirror is generally better than right in front of the mirror.
- Sofa-chair Patterns
Generally, people stick their furniture with the wall in an attempt to make the room spacious. Contrary to popular belief, it makes the room look larger, not comfortable. Sofa-chair combination usually follows the H or U pattern depending upon the area available.
A single rug under your sofa as well as chairs adds a sense of detail to the room by limiting the sitting area. Pro tip: Avoid individual rugs under sofa and chairs or inappropriately sized rugs.
- Lighting Styles
‘Ambient’ lighting focuses on a 360-degree radiance. ‘Task’ is dedicated to a place like central kitchen table or reading corner. ‘Mor’ focuses on a specific hanging attribute like a light source just above an abstract painting. Choose the lighting in alignment with room lighting and size.
- Wall Hangings
Considering the average eye level, you can hang abstract artwork on the wall. The idea here is to match the hanging with wall size. Large walls compliment big-sized artworks while it is better to hang individual frames with adequate spacing on other walls.
- Front Door
This is one the most beautiful ways to set a first impression for the house. For instance, you could up the intrigue factor with an orange-colored door. Its’ unique, funky and in contrast with the wall color of your interiors. There’s only one drawback: this doesn’t work everywhere.
Curtain placement plays an important role in making the room look taller. Place curtains higher than the windows to create the desired effect. Don’t worry, every curtain panel has a scope of going 3 inches above.
- Call a Professional
Keep living in the same house for years and it “feels alright” to you. Invite a new and qualified perspective in the form of a professional interior designer. You’ll be amazed at the possibilities.
