6 Interior Design Hacks for Beginners!
Today, we will be outlining a list of basics for all design beginners, so keep your eyes open!
Less is More
For a first timer, know the difference between going overboard and keeping the balance. You have to know just the right amount of balance and stop there. Most young designers get carried away with their first designs, which can make the entire interior seem over the top. So go with the infamous saying, ‘less is more’ in order to get the best results from your very first designs. Emphasize on the materials and colors, and tone it down with the uncanny furniture and fixture design.
Color and Contrast
As a beginner, even if you might think you have a superb sense of color and contrast, you need to throw out that thought and study the color wheel all over again. The combination of lights with the darks needs to be carried out with the utmost care. If you look at the interior below, you will notice three contrasting themes within one interior scheme – blue, gray and rust. Blue and gray the homeboys of contrast combination but only this specific shade of orange-y rust would have worked with this scheme.
Go with simple designs – going simple does not mean that your designs are any less complementary than the more retro ones. It only means that you are masterful enough to show restraint in your design. If you look at the interior below, you would notice how each and every furniture piece is clearly box like, but also pretty elegant and sophisticated.
While color contrasting can be helped out in general by using the color wheel, the perfect combination of materials is harder and much more challenging to put down. You can never know for sure if a certain material would complement the other matching material. It may even look good in your head but practical application can be a bit disheartening. So you should always do a little 3d modeling and material application to get the gist of the basic material application you have in mind.
Choosing the correct accessories is a superfluous part of interior decorating, but do not misjudge its importance. You have to survey the market for the best products and glean the correct amount and correct formation to match your interior style. This can include artwork, lighting fixtures, bed sheets, photo frames, decorative baubles and trinkets and more.
Furniture design is perhaps the most inherent part of an interior design formation. Not only does it represent the style of aesthetic you’re going for, but also demands a certain level of creativity. The image below shows an unconventional side table design, which is both modern and contemporary, yet fits right into the desired aesthetic.
