6 Interior Design Tips & Tricks

Here at Snell Construction, we can custom build your house to suit your every need, but it’s up to you to make it feel like home. Let’s go over some tips and tricks on how to decorate your new house so it feels like yours.

1.) Add Mirrors

Mirrors are a great trick to make a smaller space seem larger and, when placed directly across from a window, will instantly brighten up your home. Don’t just stick to your regular ol’ rectangular mirrors, though. Consider the shape and style of the room and choose a frame that best reflects that (no pun intended).

2.) Keen on Green

Adding plants is an inexpensive way to accessorize and bring color and texture to your home. Not only are plants absolutely gorgeous, but they can also help to absorb pollutants and keep the household air clean. Win, win!

3.) Accent Pieces

Keep your couch a neutral shade and switch out different colored/textured decorative pillows and throw blankets depending on the season or your mood. It’s an easy way to switch up the vibe of the space and cheaper than having to buy a new couch if you decide you want to alter color schemes.

4.) Area Rugs

Area rugs add warmth, personality and color to any living space. Hardwood floors are easy to maintain, but they lack the comfort that carpeted floors offer. You can add rugs of the same color but different textures to keep things a little bit interesting, or go all out and add different colored and different patterned area rugs to show off your spunk. Just like the throw blankets and decorative pillows, you can change out your rugs with the change of the seasons.

5.) Mixed Metals

Two to three different colored metal accents (think gold, rose gold and silver) is a tasteful way to create balance and definition. A gold end table with a silver lamp on top and a rose gold mirror hanging on the wall behind is just one of many different ways you can incorporate mixed metals into your home.

6.) Add Artwork

Artwork can make a statement. It can be bold and influence your design or color palette, or it can be subtle to add a hint of sophistication. It will inspire you and transform your space into something amazing. Having a rotating gallery of artwork can be an easy way to bring on a new perspective and can inspire you and those around you. You can’t go wrong with adding some art!

We hope these tips and tricks help you totally transform your space. Let Snell Construction build your house, and let yourself make it a home.
