You have a home or a work space and you constantly want to do it up in new and interesting ways, but are never really sure how to go about it? Well, we are here to help you with that. If you are looking for ideas for your spaces, here is where you can look and what you can do.
Use your Smartphone: There is more to your phone than just the selfie mode. When you step out and happen to see something interesting in terms of décor or furniture, whether you are looking for it specifically or not, take a picture of it and have it handy. When the time for doing something new comes by, you will have a ready reckoner of sorts on hand of all things that caught your fancy, and you can make them work for your spaces. Remember, thanks to technology today, almost every design can be customized to suit a space, irrespective of size. So if you have liked a pattern, or material, or print or even a placement, get trigger happy and snap some photos away.
Head into Stores: The one thing about interior décor stores these days is that they are not only about stocking different elements that you can use in your home. More often than not, they will set up complete rooms, with a range of décor elements, each one that is usually designed by their in-house architects and interior designers. These are designs that are usually relevant and flexible enough to fit into just about any kind of space. Take your time and browse through such stores to get some good ideas.
Start a Scrap Book: It’s always a good idea to go back to things that you did as a child. Start a scrap book of interior décor designs and elements that you come across in print publications. Make separate sections that can be room-wise, décor element type, materials, designs and more. This way you will always have a handy guide on décor.
Get Online: With the proliferation of the Internet, you are never going to face a dearth of ideas to do up your home. For starters, you can get onto interior décor sites that give you a number of ideas, blue prints and even DIY instructions. You can browse through picture sites like Pinterest to find ideas that are great to implement or which can inspire more of your own. You can also head out to the sites of interior décor bloggers, who are usually on the pulse of things and will talk about the latest trends, brands and design concepts, all of which can help inspire you to do something interesting.
Of course if you would rather not take on the hassle, you can always approach an interior designer and get your ideas translated into reality. There are also online sites with ready-made layouts and designs that you can choose and fill in with detailing of your choice and have companies create and install them for you. The options are plenty and you just need to trust your imagination and create happy spaces for you.
