3 Simple Design Ideas to Instantly Elevate Your Space
Not everyone has access to an interior designer or decorator but if you follow these three simple design ideas, you are well on your way to elevating your space and unleashing the designer in you. So, don’t let us waste any time, let’s dive right into it! Here are the three simple design ideas to get you started.
Step 1: Declutter Your Living Space
Sounds like a cliché, we know, but this is the first and most important step of all. So, cliché or not, to unleash the designer in you, and of course to rightfully earn that badge, you have to make time to declutter your space.
If you think about it, it’s actually easier done than said, if you simply just get started. A rule of thumb is to get rid of items that you haven’t used for a year, but we’ll push this a little further and say if it hasn’t been used for at least 6 months, chances are it will never be used. So pack up your unused household items and consider donating them. I know it’s very hard letting go of things sometimes, but hanging to them when not being used couldn’t be far worse when its crowding your living space.
Start with your living room considering the traffic and visibility and focus on one room at a time. Then you can work your way up or down your home, and have fun while doing it! By decluttering, you path ways with the messy things you don’t need. Now, you have a blank canvas and you get to create an open airy space that will focus on your personal style.
Step 2: Add Decorative Accessories and Home Décor Items
When it comes to elevating your space, invest in decorative accessories and home décor for instant and timeless update. Stay away from matching all your accessories to achieve a sophisticated look.
In fact, when choosing your accessories, such as decorative pillows, lamps, sculptures, bowls, trays, vases, jars, mirrors, florals, and wall art among many others, select items that are meaningful to you and fit your personal style.
Don't be afraid to blend different design styles, textures, and materials. Doing this will completely transform your space and give you the curated design of your dreams.
Step 3: Repurpose Unused Space
We know your home is a place of abode and where you spend the most time with your family so making it comfortable and functional should be effortless. Sprucing up a perfect space in your home shouldn’t require a renovation; the clever way is to repurpose unused space in your home, and if you don’t have an unused space, wear your rightfully earned designer hat and get creative.
Whether your home design style is modern lux, contemporary, transitional, mid-century modern, Boho, modern classic, rustic, and traditional, you name it, the list goes on. You can always repurpose your unused space into a charming cozy nook to unwind, and if you are the reading type, you can create the perfect cozy reading nook to achieve a high-end design.
Simply pick a comfortable and quiet spot in your living room, bedroom, or an extra space in the hallway. Seating should be kept to a minimum with accent furniture, along with an area rug to balance the space. Add few decorative accessories for visual comfort, infuse a bookcase or chest to display your favorites collectibles and books, and a light fixture or lamp to make it easier to enjoy your space while adding a statement appeal.
