Home renovation and interior design can be both expensive and daunting. For the uninitiated, the wide array of options available in today’s market can also be overwhelming. The key however, is to always think big, but start small.

These six tips won’t make you an expert interior designer, but they can simplify the process and give you some ideas to choose from.

Paint rooms in softer, lighter colors.

A neat trick of physics can make wonders. Lighter colors reflect more light, so smaller spaces can always benefit from lighter walls. For best results, choose tones of off-white, blue, and/or green.

Use decorative mirrors to add instant light to your living space.

Again, using reflective light is at play here. Put mirrors in strategic places to create an illusion of more space. Also visualize the effect of these mirrors.

Mix up opposites.

Contrast, if properly used can help you spice up any room. Don’t be afraid to experiment. Combine plains with prints, antiques with modern furniture, dark and light colors, etc.

Prioritize comfort.

Let form follow function. Do not sacrifice comfort in favor of aesthetic choices. Remember that actual people will sit on your couches, eat at your dinner table, and sleep on your bedroom. Comfort should always be the biggest factor.

Go green.

Plants are a very inexpensive way to add color and texture to any room. Certain plants may also clean household air and balance humidity. Just make sure to choose low maintenance plants suitable for indoors for easy cleaning.

Hire a contractor.
