Looking to decorate your living room? One of the only downsides to decorating and designing your home is that it can take time to get everything in place and your rooms looking just the way that you want them to. Whilst there are not always shortcuts that can be taken, the good news is that if you do want to make an instant difference, then there are some things that you can do.
As experts in decorating and design, here at Speaking of Interiors, we have put together our top three tips on how to decorate your living room instantly.
Creating a big contrast could elevate the final look of your room. This can be as easy as painting your window architraves, built-in bookcases or walls. Or you can use accessories such as rugs and soft furnishing instead! Photos via Pinterest.
1. Contrast your colours
It seems like too many of us overlook colour, or are too scared to use colour to our advantage. However, colour, especially when done right, can make your space look fantastic. Especially when you learn which colours work well with one another (or even those that contrast).
Sometimes a contrast can work wonders in a space, you need to get the right combination. Not only this, but painting is easy enough to do, especially if you are short on time and want to make your transformation as quick as possible.
Textures in fabrics, furniture and artwork can create a whole different feel in your room. Layer textures to enrich your space. Photos via Pinterest and Soho Home.
2. Think about textures
You should never underestimate the power of textures in your home. Rugs, curtains, throws, cushions. All of these things not only make your space more comfortable and cosy, but they also help to add colour and textures too.
You don’t have to think about one texture alone, if you want to make your home look its best, then you can think about which different textures are going to work together to create an eye-catching look.
Best of all, you simply need to choose where to put your chosen fabrics; and you are good to go.
Sometimes the best tip is the simplest of them all – organise the room. Tidy spaces are attractive and create a sense of balance. Photos via Pinterest.
3. Tidy up a messy space using storage
A messy and cluttered room can start to make you fall out of love with the space. This means that one of the quickest ways to transform a room in your home is to give it a good tidy.
Sometimes this can be a case of making the most of what you already have in storage but organising it better. Other times, you may need to bring in new storage items, which will help you to tidy up and make the most of your home.
Storage is a great way to free up from clutter and, when done right, can also be a beautiful addition to your space. You can make it decorative and functional, meaning you can take great pride in the area you have created.
Whilst these tips are a great way to make sure that your home looks just the way you want it, in no time at all, you can also speak to an expert to ask for their advice and guidance on what things to do.
