Interior designers are known for their imagination and ability to create eye-catching living spaces, but you don’t have to be a design professional to achieve professional-looking results. Here are a few tips on decorating your interior from the experts at Beltway Blinds, your trusted partner in window treatments in Baltimore.
- Get creative. Use home decor rules to guide you, but don’t be afraid to go with your instincts when it comes to interior design. Instead of planning a room that looks just like your neighbor’s, go for design elements that reflect your personality.
- Focus on a window. Well-designed rooms often have a focal point – the first thing your eye sees when you enter. Choose a window and add a bold window treatment that draws attention and makes it the focal point of a room. Allow other items to take a secondary role.
- Light in layers. Layers of lighting can be used to create interest, variety and ambiance. Rather than using evenly distributed lights, highlight one area of the room, then add general lighting and perhaps lower lighting, such as lamps.
- Paint comes last. While it’s common for homeowners to choose their paint color before anything else, this is one of the last design decisions to make. There are thousands of hues and shades of paint, and you want one that unifies your furniture, artwork, rugs and so on. It’s much easier to do this once a room is furnished, rather than the other way around.
