5 Interior Design Tricks to Transform Your Home

For those who aren’t design experts, changing up a room in your home can get intimidating. You might think that you need to have an eye for design and decoration in order to make gorgeous changes, but there are so many tips and tricks you can utilize to turn your home into the talk of your friends and family. At Ricciardi Brothers, our Design Center teams have been guiding people for decades on how to turn their homes into masterpieces. Read on to learn more about the simple changes you can make to transform your home and bring your rooms to the next level!

Use Color to Your Advantage

Color can make or break a room, so being smart about your color choices is essential to interior design. For smaller spaces, using a lighter color paint is the smartest choice, because such colors will reflect light and make the space feel larger. You want as much light as possible, and the combination of a light color and large windows will make any small space feel worlds bigger. Color also plays a role in the entire theme of a room or home- establishing a prominent color scheme when you start your decorating project will keep everything looking cohesive and professional.

Decorate Your Room With a Rug

Hardwood floors look gorgeous and sophisticated, but they don’t often contribute much to a room in terms of personality. Area rugs come in an array of colors, materials, and styles, and no matter your tastes or style goals, you are sure to find one that will suit you and your room perfectly. Area rugs will also add comfort and warmth to an uncarpeted room, and give the kids somewhere cozy to play. Rugs are great when it comes to interior design because you can change them up whenever you want, and even combine colors and styles to create a space that is truly unique.

Add a Touch of Nature

When it comes to plants, every room in your home has something to gain. Whether you’re adding a large potted plant to the corner of your living room or multiple smaller plants on your side tables and bookshelves, plants bring color and life to a room, and just like with your paint color and rug, you can put your tastes first and make choices that fit exactly how you want your room to look. Plants aren’t just visually appealing- they also absorb pollutants in the air and will leave your home feeling as fresh as it looks.

Reflect Your Tastes with Mirrors

Just as a paint color can make a room look much larger than it is, some well-placed mirrors can alter your home in more ways than one. Mirrors can instantly bring a more roomy feel to a small space, and when they are placed across from windows (in small or large rooms), you will see a huge increase in natural light. Mirrors can reflect your personality as well; there are so many options when it comes to decorative mirrors that they often come across more as decor than as a practical item for your home. When adding mirrors to a room, be sure to think about where you are placing them and what they will be reflecting, because placing them across from a part of the room that you love will double the beauty of the space.

Beautify Your Storage

Storage units are often unsightly in the overall scheme of a room, but they don’t have to be. There are so many options when it comes to more elegant storage pieces, like wicker baskets for toys and TV remotes or color-coordinated bookshelves to hold your novels and collectibles. Put some thought into the storage areas of your rooms and home in general, and these small changes will make a huge difference in the overall feel of your space.
