Here are some valuable points that can help you a lot before you plan to change the entire look of your office or home’s interior, and make it much better.

 

Interior Design and Decorating

  • Write down the objectives: The first and the best thing that you can do before starting off with the interior designing is, writing down your objectives of designing your home/office’s interior. Ask yourself, why you want to get the interior designing done for your home or office, and what’s objective behind this? Is it simply for luxury, or to give the interior a good look and feel? Or is it just to save the empty spaces? Or anything else?
  • Question yourself: Start  questioning yourself about what exactly you want your room’s design to convey? By asking such questions to yourself, you’ll be able to know what exactly want your room or office to look like. And this will help you to instruct your Interior designer, or make him understand what you exactly want to do with your room. This is very important because, rest of the design and elements will depend on this.
  • Think about usability: Since you have already questioned yourself about the objectives, now you must be knowing what you want to convey through your design. Hence, the next thing you need to do is ponder about its usability. List down all the elements that you think will be required, in a specific room of your home/office. For instance, your bedroom’s requirement wouldn’t match with the living room or your office room. That’s why, you need to think about the room’s usability before planning a design.
  • Select the right colours, textures and fabrics: Another important thing you must decide is the overall colour combinations of almost every element in your rooms. For example- Colours of the walls, curtains, cushion and bed covers must match, or be well contrasted. Also see that, the texture and fabric of the curtains and bed-covers matches well.
  • Choose furnitures: While designing or decorating your home, another major thing that you must select carefully is the room’s furnitures. Selection of the room furniture depends on the room’s utility. So, buy the furnitures accordingly, and don’t spend on extras.
  • Hire an interior designer: You may also contact a few Interior Designers who can further give you better suggestions and advises, on the other aspects of interior designing.

Colors for Interior Decorating: How to Mix and Match to Decorate Your Home

For any design or decoration, using proper colours shades is a must. Interior decoration of your home may simply look amazing or boring, depending on the colours you have used. All your shades must match or sync with each other to give the room a perfect and balanced look. Mixing and matching colors is an art and when you use properly balanced colors for interior decorating, it will simply transform the overall look and aesthetics of the space. Today in this post, we are going to learn about choosing right mix of colors, while decorating.

Lots of coloured chewing gum balls in a glass bowlFirst thing that you’ll have to do is decide a colour palette, of two or three colours which you’ll want to use in your room. While choosing the colour palette, consider choosing shades that match well with the overall decoration of room, like the colours of furniture, curtains, window and etc.

Now choose a base colour, which can be used in most part of the rooms, like the main walls, or the ones which you want to display as a feature wall.

Choose a secondary, or a highlight colour that goes well with the base colour that you have selected. Keep in mind that the secondary color should create a contrast with the base color. For example- if your base colour is red, then choose Green as the secondary colour, that will create a perfect match and provide contrast. If base colour is yellow, you may like to use purple or light red to create a good contrast. Select a neutral colour now, that will balance the base as well as secondary colour. Usually white and off-white is a good choice in case of a neutral colour.

Now, match other decorative elements such as cushion, curtains, flowers and etc in your room according to the wall colours. They should match up to the colour of the secondary wall paint, or the neutral colour. You may also use paintings that match well with these three colours, that you have selected.
