5 Secrets For Styling Your Home Like An Interior Designer

Create a plan & stick to it!

An empty space has a wealth of potential, but it’s all too easy to get caught up in the excitement and purchase items that aren’t right for you or your room. The aim here is to have a goal and stick to it. Think about your lifestyle and the rooms you want to decorate.

A single room can be used for a variety of purposes. For some, a living room can be a relaxing haven where they can binge-watch Netflix, while others may wish to turn it into an entertaining space for guests. Whatever your concept, one thing is certain: you want your area to be as functional as possible.

Find a solid statement piece

Remember, not every item in your home needs to make a statement, the key is to consider your “wow” factor, establish a focal point in your home and let everything else sit around that… then go on to add subtle accents to compliment that. According to interior designer Robin Baron to achieve that perfect look you want to…

“Combine clean-lined furniture with interesting pieces that have a unique or sculptural look. It’s all about keeping your eye moving through the room and balancing the interest points.”

Get your measurements right

Size matters when it comes to furniture and home furnishings. Never underestimate the importance of measuring the proportions of your room before you consider purchasing a new piece of furniture, especially larger pieces such as your sofas, coffee tables or your bed.

Always design with a budget

You want to begin the process by setting a budget, note down exactly how much you want to spend and go from there. Make a list of everything you are planning on purchasing and do some online/window browsing to get a gist of the prices. Once you have a strategy in place you will then have a clearer picture of what you can afford to buy within your budget.

Emphasise your accessories

From the frames on your nightstand, and sculptural tabletop lamps, to the mirror in your hallway, these small accent pieces tend to have the most impact. Accessories contribute to make a house a home, and they deserve just as much attention as the larger, ostensibly more significant elements.
