The Secret to Professional Home Styling: Beautify Your Home like a Pro

Building or designing a new house is a fulfilling but sometimes daunting process. After you have finished the whole structure of your house, you need to turn your attention to beautifying the interior as well as the exterior facade. For this matter, will you hire interior decorators or will you take the do-it-yourself route?

If you choose the latter, make sure you have a reliable guide. People who have the skills in interior designing all have unique lifestyle ideas which you can benefit from. However, there are designers who are simply awesome in creating designs and are innovative enough to stand out from the rest. If you decide to do things yourself, be guided by the experts – the right people who know exactly what they are doing when it comes to home designs in Australia.

Creative and Practical House Design Tips from the Styling Wizards

1. Have a Clear View of Your Budget

A tight budget should not stand against beautifying the home. It shouldn’t be a hindrance to creating a beautiful living space, either. You can turn any idea into a reality without having to spend all your money. You can even use recyclable things if you have to and come up with the ambience that you have always wanted. This could be the perfect time to include those vintage items you have been dying to decorate with.

2. Keep Everything in Style While Keeping Things Organised

Decorate all your spaces, including spare/ storage/ studies. Having an eyesore room will affect the entire vibe of the house. Even if you are using a space room for storage, you can still make it appear inviting by choosing the right colour combination and furniture that will fit in the vacant spaces. There are some fantastic ways to fashionably store items such as documents, sports gear or personal mementos.


3. Make both Classic and Modern Designs Fit Your Style

You may see that some of the modern house designs Australia has are incorporating the old and new. It’s one way to add personality to any room, after all. You just need to achieve the right balance, so the interior would not end up looking all vintage or all modern. A good rule of thumb is to keep a 70:30 ratio with the new taking the bigger number.

4. Avoid the Clutter

Clutter doesn’t necessarily mean stuff strewn around. It can also mean mismatched pieces that look odd rather than artistic. It can also mean opting for colours and patterns that don’t blend or complement well with the rest of the interior theme or décor. When you are choosing colours with your builder, make sure you understand the look you are wanting with your wall colours, tiles, benchtops and flooring, so that the consultants can help you create your dream home.

5. Go for Unique and Feel Free to Innovate

Before throwing away your old cabinet or drawer, find ways to make it useful in one of the many corners of your house. You can even revive it to become more stylish by painting it with a vibrant colour or simply hand-chiselling new designs on it. There are some fantastic DIY gurus online who can provide you with inspiration to give your old furniture a new life.
