Interior Design Rules That Everyone Should Know

June 24, 2015 2:40 pm

The expertise of a trained interior designer comes at top dollar, so heed this advice before shelling out your hard-earned cash: Most, if not all, home decorators incorporate the same design principles when furnishing and designing a room. You needn't possess a degree—nor a keen eye for design—to apply these rules of thumb to your space! Here are two simple rules to follow:

1) Add round shapes to create visual interest.
Because most furniture is made up of 90-degree angles, be sure to soften these sharp angles by introducing round shapes into your design. This curvature can come from circular-shaped throw rugs, round accents (vases, frames, collectibles, pillows), and lighting fixtures.

2) Think big.
While you can certainly draw inspiration from a smaller collectible, always start the design process with larger pieces, then work your way down to accents. For instance, if you're designing a living room, begin the design process by choosing your sofa and rug, then progress incrementally to smaller and smaller pieces, finishing with accessories.
