Redecorating your home needn’t be the costly and time-consuming endeavour you imagine. It is often an entirely daunting undertaking, made worse when one considers the permanence of adding a new water feature or fireplace. With unique additions such as a charming water wall from The Soothing Company or a new approach to your lighting layout, transforming your home does not have to entail a complete renovation.
There are several simple ways to transform your home, just by implementing some smart and unique interior design ideas and principles. We have put together the top tips for a no-fuss, DIY approach to home renovation that you can implement today.
A Change in Lighting
Lighting is perhaps one of the most important aspects of any space. It serves to highlight and contrast set pieces, creating the visual narrative so to speak. Because of this, we sometimes overlook the aesthetic of the source itself. Light fixtures and fittings can contribute to the design of a space, even forming the very centrepiece.
We aren’t referring to extravagant old chandeliers, but rather to pendant lighting. The more striking and unique, the better, a creatively curated combination of pendant lights are in their own right a conversation piece. With the astonishing variety of pendant lights on the market, you can easily find the set to compliment any space.
Contrast in Texture
We generally think of contrast in terms of tone, shade and hue, but the most striking and impactful contrast in interior design is texture. Picture a rough stone finish framing an angular matte surface, and you already know what we mean. You can achieve distinction throughout the space by playing with textures in an area.
More than three and it easily slips into disorganised chaos, but with the right blend, you will create visual tension and emphasis. We recommend working with a sheen, matte and metallic textures. Most importantly, be bold in the colour combination for genuinely eye-catching results.
Synergy with the Exterior
For spaces that lead to your garden area, bring the outdoor aesthetic indoors to create a flowing visual unison. By using the same materials and plants inside as outside in smart ways, you can create the illusion of a unified space.
As an example, you could bring the wood used in your deck into the interior by way of a bespoke coffee table. You can opt for a more natural aesthetic; it’s best to avoid lavish design elements that may too strongly juxtapose the natural design approach.
Your walls are not necessarily just the parameters of a space. By using complementing hues and tones, you can create spatial depth and contrast. An area need not have white walls all around. By painting a wall, or part of a wall a darker, or lighter shade, you change the perspective of the space.
You can then combine this with wall furnishings, such as water features. Your wall can be a real centrepiece. For a greater sense of depth and dimension, you can combine floor to ceiling mirrors. Add to the mix some opposing mirrors, and you have unique visual features that subtly play off of your lighting and home decor.
