Make Your Personal Space Inspirational

It’s where you retreat after a hard day at work or a long day running errands that zap your energy levels so your flat must be a place where you can relax, reflect, and rejuvenate yourself for tomorrow.  Just like you, your flat will need a little pick-me-up from time to time and knowing some simple interior design tricks can provide you with affordable ways to make inspirational changes to your living space.  There are times when just a small modification can lighten up and add interest to an entire room or your own reading area.  Let’s explore some ways to make your personal space more inspirational for you.

Bedroom light

1.       Use light-coloured walls and mirrors to make your rooms feel larger.  Brighter paint colours as well as the mirrors will reflect the natural light more effectively and give the illusion of a larger living space.

2.       Place mirrors directly across from windows.  This strategic placement helps to add instant light to your room.  You can use them instead of art on your walls and add another dimension to your personal space.  You’ll enjoy how the light adds to your positive mood and attitude about the lovely space surrounding you.
3.       Mix patterns and textures.  Designers once recommended that everything match and be of the same vintage but now they suggest using family heirlooms along with your new sofa to make a statement about your personality and style.  You’ll include accessories that are important to you that give a feel of style and class to your flat.  Combine different fabrics, rugs, furniture, pillows, and colours to add sophistication to your living space.
4.       Use slip covers if you entertain a great deal or if you have children.  When you don’t want to worry about wine stains or candy being stuffed into your sofa, you can use an attractive slip cover for your sofa or chair to protect it from accidents that can occur.  They can add a casual, comfortable yet elegant appearance and change your décor in a matter of minutes.
5.       Use wicker baskets for storage and an attractive design element.  Using a wicker basket will not only give you some storage space but will also add a different texture to your design.  They come in a variety of sizes and are a quiet affordable method to solve a multitude of design challenges.

Buying something new is not always necessary when you are trying to think of interior design ideas that fit into your budget.  Take some time to check what you already have and how you can creatively incorporate it into your décor.  From hanging pot holders to antique kitchen tools, adding these pieces will make your living space more interesting and personal for you.

If you have the space, you can add plants to your personal space for a touch of natural beauty.  Make sure that they fit in nicely with your décor and are placed to add to the overall effect of your design.  Making your personal space inspirational will be an exciting adventure for you to undertake.
