Interior design and decoration can be easy, fast, and effective if you know the basics. Everyone wants a good house interior but only a few are willing to do design and decorating because of reasons like alleged lack of time, budget constraint, and the fear of one's unavailability of creative design concepts. It is not really the lack of desire to do it, but rather, the fear of doing it wrong. Although time is really required, such time does not extend for days or weeks. You have been in your house for quite sometime, or even if you just bought it, the design plan can easily be conceptualized by simply remembering your dream house when you were a kid.
This time, just get closer to reality. As for the budget, you need not spend so much. All you have to do is to be creative and resourceful. If you have enough furniture already, then just rearrange them. Buy some house paint and refurbish it. Even a simple general cleaning can lead to a simple design and decorating. The issue on fear of making a not so creative design is very subjective. It is your house and it is you who lives there, thus whatever pleases you would be the best interior design plan for you. Just make sure you don't overdo it nor neglect some basic principles in design and decorating. Some of these basic principles are discussed hereinafter.
There are different things to consider that it normally requires some time from conceptual blueprint to the actual designing and decorating. You have to primarily take into account the type of look you want to give to your house. Having in mind a general idea of how you want your house to look like, you need to determine the best color combinations that perfectly match with the era or geographic basis of your design and decorating plan.
Say, if you want a Mediterranean look, then your color combination must be classic rather than using very light colors. After deciding on the color scheme that fits your design and decorating plan, you then determine the scale of your home interior. This scale guides the owner to design on maximizing the available space, bearing in mind the need to make it appear inviting and organized. Whether your home interior is large or small, the size of furniture you place must always be in proportional to the available space without making it appear cluttered, cramped, and uneasy. Your plan must also be in style. It is not enough that you just go by the book to make sure you do it right. Give your design the elements of your personality and attitude. Style your home interior according to your needs and desires. Your style must also blend with the rest of the elements already mentioned such as color and scale.
With all these, designing your home interior really needs some of your time to make sure you do it right. However, do not fear of experimenting. Make your own plan according to your budget capacity and do not fear of committing mistakes along the way because you can easily rectify it. The main point in interior design is not to please guests, but to give you comfort and tranquility in your own home.
