Creating interior is like opening a box of chocolate: even though you see the cover you never truly know what you’ll end up with.
If you browse the Internet a bit, you can see numerous ideas for your home. However, only a few of them will truly fit. Sometimes, space might be the problem. Others will struggle with budget. No matter the case there will always be some limitation preventing you from creating a dream home.
This is precisely why we’ve made this brief article.
We have thought long and hard about perfect solutions for your home; solutions that may fit any space regardless of your budget. In theory, these ideas should look chic no matter what.
Let’s check them out!
1. Using mirrors for your walls
Mirrors are universally acceptable and stylish. If you ever tried using them as ornaments you would know what I’m talking about.
Great thing about mirrors is that they are rather big and inexpensive. On top of it all, they can be used with almost any interior design. This makes them a universal solution for every home.
Unlike paintings that have too much character or posters (which tend to lack it), mirrors are the middle ground making sure that your walls aren’t dull. Hollywood mirrors are the best example, you can visit HollywoodMirrors.co.uk and see a big collection of such products.
2. Cut down on furniture
Here is an interesting and a bit defeating fact.
Western families are constantly getting smaller. Yet we still tend to buy big family furniture even though there is nobody to be placed there.
We are used to this big furniture due to their functionality and over the years we convinced ourselves that this furniture is also stylish.
Although it is hard to debate taste, one thing is for certain. Big furniture pieces tend to make home claustrophobic. Oftentimes less is more and this is especially true when it comes to these items.
3. Focus on small items
Modern architecture teaches us that interiors should be empty, minimalistic and almost sterile. Although I completely agree that you don’t need so much furniture (especially if there is no realistic need) you should definitely focus on small items as a way of decorating your home.
What do I mean by that?
Simply put, homes should be homey and we are able to create such atmosphere by putting a personal stamp to this space. By using small items procured during your travels or from antique shops, you are able to create feeling of warmth; as if someone is truly living in your home.
4. Multipurpose storage
When I say storage I primarily refer to cupboards and closets.
Truth be told, when we plan purchase we usually think in terms of item groups. For example your clothes will be placed here and your documents will be placed there etc.
In reality, there is always some excess stuff. You will have couple of shoes more than your cupboard can take or you will have more plates that you can fit in your kitchen. Of course, you can always toss these excess items and only remain with things that you truly like and intend to use. But do you really wish to go on this road?
Best solution in this situation is to get a smaller storage item where all these miscellaneous can be placed. In terms of interior design this will result in less stuff lying around. This also means that you will plan properly not have to upgrade later on or get addition furniture that actually has no place in certain rooms.
Like always planning is the key and you have to plan excess stuff even though you might not have it at the moment.
