When you start decorating your home, you can quickly get lost in the complexity of the task. You have to find your style, the right products and everything within your budget. Don't panic, we are here to give you some advice to guide you in creating the interior of your dreams. Here are the rules of interior design that you should know.
Know what you are looking for
One of the first rules of interior design is to know exactly what you want.
What room do you want to decorate? Your reading area, your dining room, your bathroom? What is your style? What atmosphere do you want to give to your interior? What is your budget? Once you've answered these questions, you're well on your way.
For inspiration, you can do some research on decorating websites, in furniture stores on Instagram or even on Pinterest. Create inspiration boards to see what recurring elements you like.
Measure your space
Knowing the space you have is an essential decorating rule. In the store, it can be complicated to get an idea of the size of the furniture as well as how it could look in your home.
We want to avoid choosing a piece of furniture that would be lost in our room or on the contrary that would be too imposing for the space you have. Also try to enlarge the available space. By measuring, we avoid unpleasant surprises during your purchase!
Think about the importance of spot lighting
If there is one element that should not be neglected in your interior, it is the light. Often forgotten during the decoration phase, it has the power to totally change the atmosphere of a room.
Prefer warm light sources, to give a warmer and cozier look to your interior.
Choose a strong room
You can create your interior design around a strong piece. A strong color, a distinctive pattern or a piece of furniture with an original shape can give the room character.
You can make reminders with accessories to create unity.
