Decorate Your Home Like An Interior Designer

Interior design can transform a room or a whole house from unexciting to unforgettable. The big difference between an interior designer and a homeowner is that the designer looks at the room and entire house from a different perspective. Most people accumulate their decor from pass-down furniture or random pieces they have compiled over time. An interior designer focuses on telling a story about the people living in the home and expresses the character of the owners through purposeful choices.

To attain the interior design effect, you can replicate the steps the interior designer takes to build and shape the room into a story. This method begins by asking simple questions such as: what is your style, how do you live in each room, what do you like and dislike about the room, and how do you want to feel in the room when it is completed. Every person will answer these questions differently and their answers will vary further depending on the room. The designer will take these answers and evaluate how to achieve the results you want.

This approach usually involves deciding if the space needs to be changed by the addition or removal of walls, doors or windows. Then the designer works out a space plan for the room or house that will create the best flow through the space and the most remarkable visual impact. Good interior design optimizes function and visual appeal. Once you solve modification and space planning, then you concentrate on implementing your plans. Most designers work in layers such as: wall and ceiling hue, floor and rugs, furniture and upholstery, curtains and blinds, light fixtures, accessories, and accents and art.

By adding each layer you can build a room using the same methods. Pretend that you are an interior designer working for a client when you go shopping for rugs, furniture and art. Take your camera and tape measure with you into the stores and photograph the items you are enticed by. Measure the items and keep a list. When you get home, evaluate the items you nearly bought to see if they work with your new story. This will permit you to edit your possibilities and create exactly the look you want. When you do buy new pieces they will be the appropriate color and fit for your composed room, not random impulse purchases. This will give you a designer room.
