Back to Basis With Interior Decor

February 10, 2017

Interior design is the art of taking care of a space internally,  while taking all its dimensions into consideration; in a way that makes the best of all the elements within it.

There are some basics that we need to know to find our best home décor:

1- Plan First:

Before implementing any design, planning should be performed based on certain architectural data. Broad perception and awareness for all related details should be obtained: internal measures, furniture materials, furniture accessories, and lightning.
Below are some guidelines that should be taken into consideration to help in decorating your apartment:

 

2- Room Use:

When you design a room, you must first consider its use. For example, the living room is a place for conversation and family reunions, so the distribution of furniture in this room must lead to the conversation: chairs must be facing each other and sufficient for the numbers of the family. Will there be a place dedicated to reading in this room? What about TV watching? Ask yourself that kind of questions and you'll end up with the guiding answers to your plan. Your rooms are to be beautiful, but also adequate for their purpose!

 

3- Mood:

When you start designing any room, the desired mood must be defined. Do you want the mood to be modern, or traditional? When choosing the type of mood of the room, be careful to consider every element as the furniture, the carpet, the accessories, and the scenery, will follow the general mood.

 

4- Coordination:

Systematic coordination and symmetry are no longer the norm, however   try to find a focal point for the room furniture as the TV or the fireplace. Make sure that the room includes objects of different lengths and heights, but keep them balanced and comfortable to the eye.

 

5- Colors:

Colors have strong influence on our behavior and moods, so your choice will depend upon which feel are you trying to recreate. The proportions of the colors you will use also matters. Here is one good rule of thumb: the main color must occupy 60% of the room space; the secondary color must occupy 30% of the room space, and a third color usually help to highlight the previous colors and advised to occupy 10% of the area. Consider light colors to suit small and narrow rooms as they make them seem more spacious, and low ceilings seem higher; and conversely, use dark colors in large rooms or for high ceilings.
