Interior design for your home is never easy. You want to make sure that any space that you decorate is fully functional and is going to work perfectly for your needs, but you also are going to want to make sure that it looks stylish too.
It should also be a perfect compliment to your own personal tastes, after all, it is your home and you have to be the one spending time there.
Balance comes in a variety of forms when it comes to interior design for your home, and it isn’t always easy to achieve.
To help you with achieving balance in your home, here are some of the key things to consider.
If you are planning on having a neutral approach to design in your home, then balancing the colours isn’t going to be too tricky. However, this particular look isn’t for everyone, and there are lots of people who are going to want to bring a variety of colours together to still create a harmonised space.
You have to remember that balancing colours does not mean that you match them up completely, else you are going to end up with a space that looks a little too perfect. The approach to take is to blend rather than match. The colours shouldn’t match perfectly, but they should look good together.
Another way to have colours that are balanced is to choose colours that are in the same colour scheme, but that vary in shade and intensity.
Prints can be a little harder to balance than colours, particularly because they can vary so greatly. This is why many people decide not to mix too many prints in one space. Most of the time, you will see a bold print matched with a bold colour, or perhaps with a slightly more neutral colour if you think that it would be too much.
There is a way that you can combine prints if you really want to. This will work best if you opt for prints that are similar in their design. Think of it this way, despite perhaps being a different print, floral prints are going to work really well together. This is because they are similar in style. You could even mix floral prints with bird prints, as again, they are similar in their style.
Balancing function with style
Furniture is an important part of interior design in any room in your house. You want to make sure that the furniture you choose is stylish, especially since it will be in your home for some time. Not only this, but you will also want to make sure that the furniture is functional too.
Thankfully, in these modern times, furniture manufacturers have realised that it is incredibly important to make sure that the furniture that they create is going to be the perfect blend of the two needs.
These pieces of furniture are designed to offer up everything that you are going to need for your home in the way of style, but also match you needs for function too. This could be innovative approaches to storage, or perhaps fabrics which are going to be easy to clean and are durable enough to stand the test of time.
If you are short on space, then you may find that you really don’t want furniture that completely takes over the space that you have. Which means that you look at pieces that can double up with two uses, therefore saving you space.
Sometimes you are just going to want to have something bright and eye-catching within your home. A great way to do to this is to have an accent chair. Accent chairs are beautiful pieces of furniture that often come in a bold design, print or colour. They can be placed in a variety of rooms in your home and are there to create contrast as well as an eye catching feature.
