9 Interior Design Rules to Live by – Part 1

Whether your furnishing your first apartment or upgrading to the home of your dreams there are a few simple interior design tricks that will help you make the most of your new space and the best part is that you don’t have to be super design savvy to get them right.

In this three-part post we’ll unpack nine interior design rules every new homeowner should live by.

Make your layout functional

The most important thing to consider at the very start of your interior design journey is to keep your layout functional. Your space needs to be liveable so play around with ideas to find the most suitable set up that optimises your space to suit your lifestyle.  You can start by looking online for free offerings of online tools for room layout and design to help envision your space without having to schlep around all your furniture.

Spend on seating

If you’re looking to splurge a little you should definitely do so on seating. Making sure you have the appropriate seating is essential in your living room so take your time when buying that sofa and don’t be afraid to spend a little more in this area. Make sure you get the size and style right, select a pattern and style that’s timeless because the last thing you want to do is spend all that money on something that will be outdated within a year or two.

Add decorative objects

Including decorative objects and accessories in your décor is essential if you want to make a style statement.  If you’re a newcomer to design don’t be afraid to accessorise. Do your homework and browse through magazines and interior showrooms to see what catches your eye. Take note of the way showrooms display their decorative objects and take that into account. Most of all when buying decorative objects by things that speak to your personal taste and style.
