Normally, if your considering interior design as a part of your next home renovation project you might think this is going to cost you upwards of five figures or something extraordinary like that. What the professionals might not want you to know is that you can actually get some great and unique decor pieces relatively inexpensively and with some creativity put it together really nicely. In today’s post we’ll cover some easy ideas you can use if your revamping the layout or look of your bedroom.
Create Contrast Effectively
One of the easiest ways to create emphasis and contrast to make certain areas stand out is to paint one wall a totally different colour. This is usually called an accent wall and will naturally draw visitors attention to it over the rest. This can be a wall that has some art, or pictures or even just a window. Either way. it’s as easy as either re-painting only 3 walls instead of 4, or just chaging the colour of one wall.
Instead of something basic that is cost effective, consider getting a really unique rug that shows off your own personality. It doesn’t nessecarily have to be exquisite or expensive. Interior designers routinely source unique items like this from thrift stores, online sites like eBay, even flea markets. You can do the same and skip the markup and consultation cost by looking online for ideas and then sourcing them yourself. While this might seem time consuming, it is usually not as bad since you know exactly what you want – not the interior designer.
You can easily create the illusion of depth by using lamps and lights on different levels. This works for bedrooms, living spaces or dens, and especially well with smaller spaces. Be sure to experiment with how the light illuminates other elements of your interior design project and you can create emphasis where needed.
With a little bit of research on your own and some creativity, you can save the cost of an Ottawa interior design firm and get the same unique decor look. Keep your eye on our blog and read more for more cool design ideas!…
