Designing or redesigning the interior of your home can be a fun but intimidating job since many of your choices will have to last for years. The following three tips will help make your next interior design job a bit easier, whether you are redecorating one room or the entire house.
1. Hang a mirror on the correct wall. Mirrors reflect light, which can make your room brighter. Hanging a mirror directly opposite a window will reflect the light right back outside. Instead, place mirrors perpendicular to windows to help reflected light fill the room.
2. Use slip covers. A slip cover can make any sofa or chair match the color scheme of your room. By using slip covers, you won’t have to purchase new furniture, which saves you money. The covers also protect your furniture from dirt and stains.
3. Choose the paint last. With the plethora of paint colors available, choosing the color palette for your room can be difficult if the room hasn’t already been decorated. Once you know the furniture and accessories the room will contain, choosing an appropriate wall color will be much easier.
