You might have always dreamed of your home looking like something out of a magazine, but you might not be sure of where to start. Interior design can be tricky, but there are a few tricks that you can try if you'd like to enhance your home's interior design. Try one or all of these five tips, and you're sure to be pleased with the results.


Play with Color


Even though neutrals might feel "safe," there's nothing wrong with adding pops of color to your home decor. For example, try painting one wall in a main room in your home in a bright, bold color for an instant change. If you want to repaint the inside of your home, think outside of the box a little bit, and steer away from shades of white, grey or taupe. Instead, try shades of blue, purple, red or other favorite colors to give your home an instant style upgrade.


If you don't want to paint your walls, you can add color in other ways. Adding a few colorful throw pillows to your bed or sofa can make a big, cheerful change, or you can try colorful curtains or lampshades.


Mix and Match


If you look around your home and see that everything matches, you might want to consider shaking things up a little bit. There is nothing wrong with adding in some patterns or even mixing patterns. If you use the same color scheme, your home will feel cohesive, even if everything doesn't match. Plus, mixing and matching patterns is a great way to make your home feel more comfortable and lived-in rather than looking too perfect.


Rearrange Your Furniture


One great way to make an instant change to the appearance of your home is to rearrange your furniture. One common mistake that many people make is pushing their furniture against their walls, but the problem with this is that it can make your home look and feel more "boxy." Pulling your couches and other furniture just a few inches away from the wall can make a dramatic difference. If you've got the time and a little bit of help with the heavy lifting, trying your furniture in different areas can help you get some new ideas and might help you change up your decor.


Use Glass


Nowadays, using glass in various forms in your interior design is a great way to make a statement. Glass is easy to clean, and it can make your home look more modern and spacious. A shower glass door instead of a shower curtain can be a good way to open up your bathroom, and glass cabinet doors in your kitchen can help you show off your favorite dishes. One other good option is to add interior glass doors in various parts of your home to make your house feel more open.


Look upward


One big mistake that a lot of people make is not to pay attention to their ceilings when they are decorating. However, doing something fun like painting your ceiling can be a good way to add some color and style to your home. You can even try playing around with bold looks like adding wallpaper to the ceiling for a truly drastic change.


Additionally, you'll want to pay some attention to your light fixtures. Old, outdated and dusty light fixtures can immediately put a damper on the look and feel of your home. Swapping them out for new light fixtures can be an affordable change that will instantly make a big difference.

Making your home look great is probably important to you, but interior design can be difficult for someone who doesn't have much experience with it. Luckily, by implementing these five tips, you might be surprised by what you can do to freshen up your home decor.
