Amateur designer: 9 design tips for better home decoration

When decorating or re-arranging homes, houses and living quarters, each person can be a designer / amateur. You won’t need a lot of money for some minor work and home changes. Goodwill, smart tips and useful tools are the most important items in this activity. When working on the decoration of the room, use some basic rules whose realization can become beautiful and real.
Theme for the decorative integrity of the home – choose a specific theme for decoration (tourism, sports, flowers, forests, Paris, London, etc.) and stick to the theme. Focusing on a specific theme lands design creative options. Focusing on just one topic helps you start from a given premise and fit into the whole. This gives you the advantage of comparing and perceiving the contrast of decorative items. One theme does not create unique parameters, but helps amateur designers to better understand the process of home reconstruction and build (define) a better image.
Ideas need to be tested — before you make a new picture set on the wall, make paper sections the size of the original pictures (posters) or similar wall decorations. Hook the paper sections to the positions where the pictures should hang and where they would have the most expression. This way you can see in advance whether the desired positions will make sense in a real position. Before replacing the fabric on the chairs with any new desired fabric, attach and change the fabric patterns on the item you want to upholster.
Use all the items you already have – a lot of old things can get a new dimension and a new modification by renovating. Do not pay attention to the colors of these objects, scratches, or parts that are no longer in function. Pay attention to the shape and structure of the object and how it will fit into the whole.
A color combination is important — a good color combination consists mainly of three colors: a base color that is neutral and sets the tone, then a contrasting color that is often darker and gives depth to the space, and an accent color that gives emphasis because it combines all colors. The color distribution is approximately 60 & for neutral color, 30% for contrasting color and 10% for accent color. You can use already saved color palettes that have a predefined color for your interior.
Volume adjustment lights — if you don’t use lights whose intensity is variable then you are limiting the potential of the space. The Potentiometer on the switch does not add beauty to the space as much as its light (neon light or classic light bulb) takes it away. Some decorators refer to bulbs with adjustable intensity as a “mood” switch. You can raise your mood level by silencing and distributing the light evenly.
Objects that give emphasis to the room – when decorating the home, repetition “speaks louder” is important. For example, use one lamp as a detail in the counter space that gives emphasis, but two lamps represent the focal point in the space. When it comes to curtains on the windows, excess textiles give a feeling of luxury, so it is desirable to use two to three pieces of curtains.
The details in the colors-monotony of the one-color wall are broken by the wall decoration. Painted patterns (for example, painted lines) have the same function. Many interior designers use colored details to give a new dimension to the space. Think about color tones. The more tones of colors from the same color family – the stronger the calming effect. Colors with increased contrast give the space drama.
A little luxury in unexpected places in the room – adding unexpected details can give your space an artistic experience (especially for themes that radiate the spirit of a rural interior). For example, many interior designers add small and inexpensive chandeliers in bathrooms. The bathroom looks chic. The light is then much more relaxed than standard bathroom lighting.
Wall stickers — available in many colors and patterns. They are cheap. They are easy to install. The main role of wall stickers is to give space to the space and fill the space. The use is varied. One example is the use of a wall sticker that depicts the headboard. Suitable for beds that do not have a classic headboard.
