With enough determination and skill, any home can look like an editorial spread from an architectural digest magazine. All you need to get the job done is some inspiration and plenty of creativity. In this article we’ve picked five of our favourite interior design tricks that will elevate your home to the next level.
Install New Cabinet Handles
This trick works wonders in any kitchen, pantry, or bathroom. Instead of pulling out all of your cabinets and replacing them with new ones, you can install fun handles to give it a new lease of life. Whether you prefer the classic golden look or a bold and colourful look, this design trick can suit any aesthetic.
Add Statement Wallpaper
Everyone has that one area of their home that they just can’t seem to fill. Statement wallpaper is an incredibly easy way to breathe life into a dull space. You can add a fun twist to your bathroom by covering the walls with a tropical or custom wallpaper. Just make sure to keep the decor on the wall simple as you don’t want to overshadow your statement wall.
Hang Up an Art and Photography Wall
If you love expressing your creativity and putting your favourite pieces of art on display, this is the interior design trick for you. Simply order your favourite prints and photos in an array of sizes and hang them up on your wall. You can go for a sleek look by keeping a consistent colour palette and style of frame or totally mismatch them instead.
Anchor Your Rugs Under Furniture
Most of us have rugs at home, however, not everybody knows how to place them properly. If you want your home to feel like one of these luxury apartments in Downtown Cleveland, we suggest that you anchor your rugs under your furniture. This makes the room feel much larger and grandiose. Without this anchoring effect your furniture can look isolated from the rest of your decor.
Make Use of Decorative Mirrors
Mirrors aren’t just for vanity, they’re for decoration too. Hanging up large mirrors to make a space look larger is one of the oldest tricks in the book. You can also create a panel of mirrors to create more dimension. Another popular design trend is creating a mirror nook. In this instance, you lean your mirror against the wall and place a large rug underneath. If you want to make it extra cosy, add a basket with blankets.
If you’re not too keen on the DIY aspect or you’re simply afraid you won’t get it right, we suggest getting an extra set of hands to help you with the job. Re-decorating is always more fun with a friend!
