Bring a little professionalism into your home design

If you are interested for your home to look in the absolute best way possible, there are much worse ways of making sure of that than by looking for a professional look*. Although not everyone wants this kind of look for their own home, a lot of people could benefit from it, and you might be pleasantly surprised at just how much of an improvement it can make to your home. But it’s one thing knowing that you want that look, and quite another knowing how to make it happen. In this post, we are going to look at some of the best guidelines by which you can hope to bring a little more professionalism into your home design as soon as possible.

The three-color rule

If you really want to make it look as though you have hired a professional interior designer when really you haven’t, you will want to know about some of the unspoken rules* which they often design by. One of these rules which you can expect to help you make a huge difference is what you might call the three-color rule. Choosing your colors and shades is obviously always going to be one of the more important parts of designing your interior, and if you get this right you will find it makes a huge difference. Generally, you will want to stick to no more than three colors or shades, although they can be pretty much whatever you want. You want one for walls, another for larger accents, and a third for the occasional pop. Following this rule will ensure that people think you have hired a true professional.

Take a hint from businesses

If you are seeking professionalism, it makes sense to look to businesses for some idea of how to display it, as that is what they are having to do all the time. There are many great ways in which you can hope to use some of the tips from businesses to make your interior look more professional, and you might find it is especially useful and powerful to look to those which have more obvious links to a personal home, such as restaurants and hotels. By paying attention to every little detail, such as what tablecloths* they use and where they get their sheets or pillows, will help you to make your home look more like them, and so more professional in the process.

Keep it simple

A true sign of the amateur is that they tend to believe that over-complicating something makes it more likely to look and feel professional. Of course, quite the opposite is the case. If you really want your home design to look as professional as possible, you will want to focus on keeping it as simple as you possibly can*. The truth is that simplicity is often much harder to achieve than its opposite, as it requires that you know how to choose just the right details for your home. Work on being clear on what personality you want to give to your decoration, keeping the whole thing simple, and you will find this has a great effect.
