Interior design is a booming business. It is a true talent to be able to put together an entire room or an entire home and have the design flow well throughout the home. This design need not be a difficult process nor does it need to be expensive. Follow these steps for interior design and regardless of your color scheme or theme, your room will look perfect and come together easily..
First stop on the interior design journey is to choose either a theme or a color scheme. This will set the tone of the entire room. If you are using existing furniture and existing decorations, then these items may have to set the color scheme for the room. If buying new furniture and decorations then the sky is the limit. During this stage, it is time to choose either paint or wallpaper for the walls. Paint stores have an overwhelming selection of colors. Luckily, they also put complementary colors together to take some of the guesswork out of the decision. This helps relieve some of the stress of interior design.
Once you have chosen your theme and/or color scheme, it is time to focus on the floor. If the floor is staying the same then bring in the furniture. If the floor is being changed then visit any number of flooring stores to get an idea of the look you are going for. There are too many options for flooring, but luckily the type of room you are decorating will help lessen the options. Chances are that you will not put hardwood in a bathroom just as you would not tile a bedroom. Speak with a specialist and ask about caring for each type of flooring material. This may help eliminate some of the options as well. Part of interior design is incorporating all aspects of the room together. This means that a carpet should be a color that flows with the colors in the room just as a design on laminate should complement without overpowering the rest of the room. Once the flooring is in then load in the furniture.
The furniture should be complementary to the colors in the room. It is a personal choice as to whether you want the furniture to stand out in the room or blend into the background. Your furniture is a great way to showcase your sense of style, whether it is classic, comfortable, or even regal. Once the furniture is in place, the room will look more put together and you will be able to see exactly where the decorations need to come into play within your interior design.
Onto the next step of your interior design. It is now time to decorate the walls. This will include such items as photographs, art, and also the window coverings. This is the time to truly show who you are. Fine art or family photographs? Oil paintings or movie posters? Mix and match or keep a streamlined style. The windows in any room inevitably become a focal point of the room. For this reason, the window coverings become a major aspect of the interior design. It is lucky that most places that sell higher end window coverings have designers onsite. This is fantastic because getting the right window coverings and adding to the style of your room can be a quite difficult task. This is due to the sheer magnitude of options available. It is possible to buy your window coverings at places such as Target and Wal-Mart, but be forewarned that you get what you pay for. This is true for every area of your interior design.
The majority of the room is now complete; so bring on the knick-knacks. Some people do not do the whole knick-knack decorating, but in the majority of homes there are innumerable amounts of knick-knacks. These do not necessarily have to be collectibles or figurines. These can be any decoration that fits into your interior design. The best advice is to look through catalogs of major companies. Go out and visit popular stores and look for ideas. These finishing touches will top off the interior design of your room. These items, although smaller in nature, add significantly to the design scheme. Do not overload the room with these touches, but include enough to show visitors who you are.
The entire interior design of your room reflects your personal style and who you are as a person. If you enjoy the finer things in life then decorate accordingly. If you do nothing but hunt and fish then decorate accordingly. Everyone is an individual and there is no better way to express this than through your personal style and that includes through your interior design.
