Getting the most out of your living space without necessarily spending too much for it is the goal of any homeowner. Most people don’t think that’s possible, though.
They believe that, for a home to be as beautiful as can be, you’d have to pay as high of a premium for it too. But, that’s not always the case.
Interior design in Singapore doesn’t always have to be expensive, in fact, with these clever tips and tricks, you’ll be able to significantly improve the look and value of your home for a low cost.
1. Use soft, light colours for small rooms to make them look and feel larger
The darker the colours that are used in a room, the smaller it will feel.
On the other hand, if you use softer and lighter colours, paired with the right use of mirrors and natural lighting, you’ll be able to make your room look much larger than it seems and not feel as cramped when you’re in it.
2. Don’t be afraid to use decorative mirrors
Mirrors aren’t just so for you to see your own reflection. There are many ways to incorporate mirrors in your home’s design, especially if you want to make your small space look larger.
Not only do mirrors help add instant light, but they’re also great for filling up spaces on empty walls, which help add some depth and dimension to your home.
3. Use hanging pot holders in your kitchen
A hanging pot rack is a great example of when function meets design. Beautiful and aesthetically pleasing, hanging pot holders can help make your kitchen feel like it’s always busy and in use while also serving as a convenient place for you to store your pots.
As an added bonus, you will even be able to use the additional storage space from your cupboards to store other items.
More storage never really hurt anyone, right?
4. Introduce some greenery inside your home
Plants are also another example of something that’s functional that can also add a lot of aesthetic value to your home. Not to mention, they’re cheap, and if you do your research right, relatively low-maintenance too.
Some cleverly placed plants can help add colour, depth, and texture to your home. They’re also great for keeping the air inside your home clean and free of pollutants.
5. Use rugs to make your living space more inviting
Having a comfortable living space is creating an inviting living space. However, carpeting isn’t always in the cards, which is where throw rugs and area rugs come in.
Using several different patterns of rugs and fabrics can really help add some texture to your living space and make it pop up. You’ll have endless possibilities with area rugs, and because they’re not glued to your floors like carpeting are, you can always change things up in case you want your rugs to reflect the seasons or if you’re doing some redecorating or repainting.
Don’t let your lack of budget limit you. Using these tips, you can make your home as lively and as beautiful as it can be, without paying too high of a premium for it.
