5 Decorating and Remodeling Tips From a Top Interior Designer

Interior design is about giving your home’s decor a unique look while enhancing its functionality and style. Whether you are remodelling your entire house or just sprucing up certain areas, getting the interior right is crucial. 

When designing your interiors, you will come across several styles, trends, and artists whose work may inspire you. However, taking it all in can be overwhelming, and you may feel confused about what you want to do. 

Here are five decorating and remodelling tips from our top interior designers to help nudge you in the right direction. 

Identify your style

Knowing your style can help you design your home interiors better. However, style comes to us naturally, and if you’re like most people, you may have a hard time finding your calling. To get an idea of what you like, check your wardrobe. Most people’s wardrobe personifies their likes and dislikes. Look for inspiration and determine the colours you like and the patterns that catch your eye. What attracts and soothes you the best is what you should consider your style. 

You can also research various interior decor styles online and rummage through pictures to get a gist of what you would want your interiors to look like. 

Determine what you don’t like

Knowing what you don’t like is as important as knowing what you do like. Sometimes, knowing what you definitely don’t want helps you get clarity on exactly how your interiors should appear once you’re finished. 

The best way to find out what you don’t like is to look at the existing decor and figure out what bothers you. It can be an old ottoman in the living room or the bold lilies printed on the kitchen walls. Whatever elicits discomfort, negative thoughts, or inconvenience in your decor should be eliminated. 

Build according to the space you have

It is essential to design your interiors according to the space in your home. If you try to fit designs meant for a larger area into smaller ones, they won’t work. Hence, consider the space in your home while choosing the styles and elements you want. 

Sample your paint

The colours you pick for your interiors play a vital role in your home's appearance. Paint selection can be tricky as what you see on paint catalogues and what the paint looks like in reality can be very different. Hence, before choosing the colour, always sample it. It will give you a fair idea of how the paint reflects light and whether it would be the best choice for your interiors. 

Expensive isn’t always the best

Art is essential to every interior; depending on your style, you can look for pieces that fit your space the best. However, when it comes to art—expensive doesn't always mean good and vice versa. You can hire local artists to help create unique art pieces for your home, and they can look fabulous even if the artist isn't world-renowned. You can also add a few high-value items from famous artists to create a good blend of economic and chic in your home.
