Interior Design Tips

Modern Home Decor

Listed below are some interior design ideas to help you decorate your home in a trendy yet functional way.

1. Define your style

The first step to creating a cohesive and stylish home is to define your design style. Think about the things you love, decorative items that capture your attention and what makes you feel comfortable.  Do you prefer a clean and modern aesthetic, a warm and rustic vibe or something else entirely? There are many popular styles to choose from such as Scandinavian, Mid-century modern, Farmhouse, Bohemian etc. You can also try our home decor style quiz which will help you define your unique style. Once you have a general idea of the style you like, you can start to narrow down your choices and communicate the feel of an interior space by creating a mood board for inspiration.

2. Consider the function of the space

When designing a space, it is important to consider its function. This might seem obvious but it is often overlooked. For example, a living room should be designed for relaxing and entertaining, while a kitchen should be designed for cooking and dining. Think about how you will use the space and choose furniture and layout that will accommodate your needs.

3. Create a focal point

Every room should have a focal point, which is something that draws the eye and helps to anchor the space. This could be a fireplace, a piece of wall art, a statement piece of furniture or even a window with a beautiful view.

4. Use lighting effectively

In order to create the ideal mood and environment in a room, lighting is crucial. Use a combination of soft lighting, task lighting and accent lighting to achieve the desired effect. Soft/natural lighting provides general lighting, task lighting helps you see specific areas for activities like reading or cooking and accent lighting highlights specific features or creates a decorative effect.

5. Don't be afraid to mix and match

While it is important to have a cohesive look in your home, don't be afraid to mix and match different styles and textures. This can add personality and interest to your space. 

 

6. Accessorise

Accessories are the finishing touches that can bring your space to life. Use them to add personality, colour and texture. However, avoid cluttering your space with too many accessories. 

7. Edit and refine

Once you have decorated your space, take a step back and assess it critically. Edit out any pieces that don't work or that clash with the overall aesthetic. Refine your design by adding or removing elements until you are happy with the final result.

8. Don't be afraid to ask for help

If you are feeling overwhelmed by the design process, you can seek help from a professional interior designer. They can help you create a space that is not only stylish and functional, but suits your personal style.
