It comes as a surprise to many people that interior design actually operates on a basic set of rules. These rules are crucial when it comes to creating a spacious and well-designed room that has a distinct aesthetic and flow.
- Work with Mirrors – Natural light is your ally, remember that well. The best way to make the most of it is by optimizing mirror placement. Of course, many people have trouble placing the mirror at the correct spot. As a basic rule, you need to place it opposite a window so that it can bounce of light. Just remember that it should be at least 57 inches high. This is so that it does not strain the eye.
- Use Rugs Correctly – At the end of the day, the size of the rug will inevitably dictate how other elements will be arranged around it. For instance, if you have an 8×10 foot rug, the sofa and the chairs should be placed in a way that each of their front legs is on the rug while ensuring that their back legs are outside.
These are just a couple of things to remember.
