When it comes to interior design, it’s essential to put lots of time and effort into the whole process to ensure your home is a stylish, welcoming space that suits you and your family. Home decor and interior design can often seem like a challenge, but when you know the style and theme you want to work with you can create a home that bursts with character and reflects your personal style perfectly. You don’t have to be a professional interior designer to achieve a warm and welcoming, character filled home, and here are a few ways in which you can add bold and beautiful features to your home to ensure it’s a place you’re proud to call home.
Many people see wallpaper as a marmite type product, you either love it, or you hate it. There are so many different wallpaper styles from bold patterns and fabrics, to delicate colours and materials. No matter what type of wallpaper you choose, it is always going to add character to your home. The main thing to consider when selecting wallpaper is, how much you want to use in one room, where you want to use it and how it will make the room feel overall. The wallpaper needs to suit the rest of the room to ensure you get the welcoming and homely feel that you want within your home.
The beauty of introducing bold paint to your interiors is the fun you can have experimenting with different colours to see what works well and what is a definite no go. There are so many different colour combinations that work really well to create a unique, stylish look that may not be as common in interior design today. Paint is also ideal due to how easy it can be to paint over with a different colour if you’re not happy with the end result. Bold paint has a hidden power that many people may not realise at first, but the moment you introduce some bold paintwork to your décor you are enhancing the character of the area and can rest assured it will stand out from the crowd. Painting your walls is also a cheaper alternative for decorating your home, and a very quick way up brightening the existing décor without making too many drastic changes.
Introduce a Rug
They are often overlooked, however, introducing a rug to your interiors is ideal for adding a pop of character and enhancing the space you have. The perfect example of where to use a rug to add character is the hallway. Whilst you may have beautiful oak flooring and light oak furniture, complemented by some stylish artwork and a bold vase of fresh flowers, the floor can often seem bare and a little dull. It doesn’t matter what type of flooring you have, if it’s a large open space then even a really classy marble floor can still look a little dull when not dressed up with a rug. Rugs are ideal for adding a comfortable, warm touch to the room and, as mentioned above are great for added character. You can choose a style of rug that suits the style of your decor well, from traditional, antique styles, to a modern, contemporary look with lines and sharp edges.
Grand Focal Points
The moment you enter a room you are instantly drawn towards the boldest, biggest or brightest thing in the room. To create the perfect focal point in your home, choose something bold and stylish to position in an area of the room that needs a little character. By making a focal point within your interiors you are able to enhance the rooms character and lift the atmosphere. There are so many different ways to add a focal point to a room, from bold artwork with stylish furniture pieces, to grand houseplants positioned in the centre of the room. Your focal point should work well with the décor style of the room chosen, and often playing around with ideas can be the best way to see what works for that room.
