Daring interior design ideas to try

You don’t have to be a professional interior decorator to make bold interior design choices. Here are just a few ways you can add some drama to your interior design without calling in a professional decorator.

Invest in a large area rug

Area rugs are an often under-utilized design element which is too bad because they can add a layer of depth to your interior design that you just can’t get any other way. Area rugs come in a wide variety of materials, colors, and patterns so you’ll be able to find one that fits your design scheme no matter what it is. If you’re feeling adventurous you can go with brighter colors and out-there styles for your rug to really add some flair.

Go gray

A good rule of thumb when interior decorating is to go with a neutral color for a base that will offend the least number of people since you’re eventually going to sell your home one day and you want the paint color to appeal to the widest number of people possible. But beige and off-white can get old fast. If you want a good middle ground-something a little daring but not too risky, grays might be a good choice for a base color. It will go with anything so it’s easy to work with when picking out furniture and other accessories for the space.

Steampunk

An exciting trend in interior decorating is steampunk. Steampunk embraces vintage elements from the 1800s and blends it with more modern elements. Achieving a steampunk look is as simple incorporating some brown leather furniture and ornate clocks. Emphasize gears and machinery in your design choices. You can’t go wrong with an antique record player either.

Incorporate floral

Floral prints don’t count. Real floral elements. That means living things that require taking care of. If you don’t have much of a green thumb you can purchase hardier plants that can survive a few missed waterings and a few days without sunlight. Pick plants with scents you like. Sure fake plants are much easier but it just isn’t the same and the scent and beauty that comes using real plants in your home is worth the investment of time and money.

Modernize your old baseboard radiators

Many older homes still use baseboard heating systems. They’re actually very efficient at heating the entire home compared to other types of heating systems but some of the older ones can be pretty unsightly. For a small investment of your time and money, you can install snap-on baseboard heater covers to give an older heating system a brand new look. It’s a lot cheaper than tearing out the baseboard radiators and having a whole new heating system installed.
