Whether you’ve just moved or just want to change your whole interior, chances are you’ll be browsing Pinterest or Instagram at some point. We all try to take inspiration from these platforms and bring it to life in our homes. If you’re looking for inspiration or just don’t know where to start, we’ve got you covered! Keep reading to discover our top five interior design tips that will turn your house into a home. Because after all, the most important thing is to feel at home in your own house, right?

1. Create a mood board

After all those hours on Pinterest scrolling through different interior styles, you probably have an idea or two in mind about how you want your home to look. But the tricky part is getting that idea out of your head on the table and bringing it to life. This is where a moodboard comes in handy. A moodboard is basically a board (real or virtual) where you collect all the inspirations you’ve found that might work for you. And don’t just limit yourself to Pinterest, have you thought about flipping through magazines and deleting anything that screams at you? We promise that after creating your moodboard, it will be so much easier to bring your vision to life.

2. Comfort first

Now that you’ve defined the interior style you’re looking for and have a general idea of ​​what you plan to do, it’s time to consider comfort versus style. Don’t we all love a white sofa? They are very trendy at the moment but before buying one it is worth considering if it is practical in your home. Do you have children? Or dogs? Hmm, you might want to rethink that decision then. In modern homes especially, it can be tempting to buy all that neat looking furniture, but remember: a home should be lived in too!

3. Ways to make a room look bigger

If you have smaller rooms in the house, there are plenty of ways to make them look bigger. Add mirrors to the walls, giving the room an extra dimension. Another way to do this is to have neutral, light colors on the walls. While it may be tempting to paint all the walls black, a dark olive green, or a navy blue, these dark colors can make your rooms appear smaller. If you still want a splash of color on your walls, don’t worry because you still can. Try to limit dark colors to one or two walls, instead of going all out and painting all the walls (including the ceiling). It still gives a warm ambience without making the room feel tiny.

4. Sleep is everything

There is one thing we have learned over the past year and that is that sleep is EVERYTHING. Especially if you’re a working parent who’s typically busy from early morning until late at night, getting that eight hours of quality sleep is extremely important. If there’s one thing you shouldn’t save money on, it’s the right bed, bedding, and pillows for you and your sleeping preferences. It can be a big investment, but your neck, back and general well-being will improve dramatically if you buy the right mattress, duvet and pillows. Luxury duvets can transform the way you sleep as it gives you an extra level of comfort. And don’t underestimate the power of pillows! If you’re a back or side sleeper, like many people, invest in a firm pillow that helps align your spine. This will save you a lot of neck and back problems later!

5. Less is more

Finally, less really is more, even in interiors. People who have clean but comfortable interiors generally feel more at peace in their homes than people who have bombarded their rooms with a bunch of decorations. While accessories can make a home more personal and cozy, be sure not to overdo it. Hang pretty prints on the walls, throw cushions on your sofa and maybe you can even decorate a coffee nook with a pretty table, mugs and your selection of coffees and syrups.
