Interior design which started out as an art has now become a widespread field of study and is even considered a branch of science coming under Home Sciences. Interior design is a very intricate form of art. It basically involves aesthetics and pleasantness to the eyes. A bit of furniture here, some decoration there and a soothing shade of colour can light up a house and make it appear attractive to the eye as well as the senses.
One could perform some serious modification and could go in for newer furniture and paints, or just settle for something as meager as shifting the furniture regularly and decorating the house with commonly available and cheap articles and still give a fresh look to the premises. Lets us look at some of the common interior design ideas.
The first rule of interior decoration, from the bathroom to the kitchen, is that the place should be soothing and attractive to look upon at the same time. Both of these are achieved by the colour of paint, tapestries, furnsihings, lighting, curtains and other such furniture colours. Colour is an integral part of Interior decoration. Generally, the colour one prefers springs from one's personality. Vivacious and bubbly people generally prefer vibrant and bright shades of colours, whereas thoughtful and quiet people tend to go in for pastel shades and monotones or duller shades. At the same time the colour scheme of the premises should be well matched and easy on the eye. According to surveys and researches, harsh colours have been found to reduce the production capability of employees in industries and soothing colours have been found to raise efficiency.
The second rule of Interior decoration is aesthetics. Aesthetics as a word used in this context means a sense of beauty and simplicity. Basically, a home with airy and sunlit rooms populated with good furniture could be deemed aesthetic and a dark and dingy home with cluttered furniture would be deemed unaesthetic. Aesthetics in terms of Interior decoration would imply that the stuff used for decoration carries a sense of beauty and simplicity. It could be a well placed flower pot or well placed furniture, but it should be good to look at and should add value to the existing setup. Making the most of the buildings architecture is also an integral part.
The third and final tip isn't just a single tip but a collection of decor tips that are sure to make your place an aesthetic place. Some of the tips listed on websites scattered across the internet suggest setting up spacious rooms. When decorating a place, there should be enough room to allow for free movement from any point in the room to any other point. Moreover, the place should come across as cozy and comfortable. To this effect, many sources suggest the use of clever lighting creating suitable shadows and lit up areas which seem to increase the space of the room. The corners of rooms should not be left bare. A simple plant or shrub or a piece of decoration can amplify the aesthetic quotient of the room. Furniture should also provide for ample storage space and tables and drawers could be used to store handy items and thus can also provide extra space for storing other items.
Another valuable tip is to implement a theme regularly and modify the room according to the theme. This helps provide a change in the decoration and maintains a permanent interest in the outcome of the decoration of the room. We hope that using some of these Interior decoration ideas you would transform your home or your work place into a beautiful place.
