What To Do When You Have No Eye For Interior Design

Are you a creative person? We all are, in our own ways. After all, one person might be a great writer, and another might be a great artist, but neither could do each other’s job. And when it comes to finding your talent, realising your weaknesses is just as important as knowing your strengths. 

Now, this just goes to show that if you have no clue how to arrange your furniture, you don’t have to get yourself down! Maybe you’ve just moved, or maybe you’re sick of the look and layout of your current home - either way, you don’t feel up to the task of creating the interior you really want, and you’re just not sure what to do next. 

Well, we’ve got some tips for you below; don’t let a lack of confidence with interior design make you feel uncomfortable in your own home!

Come Up with a Floor Plan

A floor plan is the first thing to think about here; when you know the size and dimensions of your space, you can plan where to put your furniture, and what kind of paint and/or wall accompaniments you’ll need to invest in as well. For example, when you’ve got a small square box for a living room, putting some mirrors up will make the space look much bigger! 

Not to mention just how integral a floor plan is to ensuring you’ve still got space to move and breathe. Yes, you’d like to have two sofas in the living room, but can you still walk all the way around the room without having to move anything? 

Hire a Professional

A professional is always going to point out the pros and cons of the space you’re working with, and ensure you consider your interior design needs from a different view point that you may not have thought of. As a result, they’re indispensable when you’re just not sure how to decorate your home yourself! 

And there are all kinds of professionals out there you can rely on. An interior designer, or a painter and decorator, are just two of the best people to get in contact with right now. The first is going to be able to come up with a layout and colour scheme you’ll love, and the second will be much more practical and efficient in their execution of the plan. 

It’s All About the Colours!

And finally, you’re going to need a cohesive colour scheme to work with. Something that features complimentary colours, and a balanced feeling, to ensure the atmosphere doesn’t bounce around too much. 

You’re going to need three main colours here: a dominant colour, a secondary colour, and an accent colour. The dominant colour needs to cover at least half of your room, but you can play with the secondary and the accent as much as you want. 

Having no eye for interior design shouldn’t hold you back! Do your research and get in touch with those in the know.
