Larger furniture items such as couches and coffee tables significantly influence your interior design, but smaller accent pieces can be just as important. Mirrors and artwork have a charming effect that makes your house feel instantly warmer and more inviting.
If you want to make a lasting impression with your interior design, try the following tips from Green Brook, New Jersey’s All Brand Furniture:
Use Mirrors To Open Up Space
If your living space feels cramped, don't despair—use mirrors to create the illusion of more space. A mirror facing a window adds more light and magnifies the room’s best qualities. You can also position mirrors behind a light fixture to amplify the effect.
When you’re choosing a mirror, don’t be afraid to play with shape. Vertical, rectangular mirrors work great for lengthening a room with lower ceilings, but if you want to really draw the eye in, experiment with different shapes. Starburst mirrors are popular, or try a subtler sparkle with reflective mosaic picture frames.
Make A Bold Statement With Your Artwork
Whether it's a sculpture or a painting, a carefully chosen piece of artwork can completely change a room's atmosphere. You may want to choose wall art that complements the colors of your furniture to create contrast, or achieve a softer effect with a monochrome palette.
Many designers suggest looking for wall art to fill two-thirds to three-quarters of a wall, and if you have several smaller pieces, don’t be afraid to mix and match. The main idea is to highlight pieces that mean something to you—don’t buy art that doesn’t speak to you, or you’ll grow tired of it quickly. As a general rule of thumb, you should have your displays professionally framed to add instant sophistication to your home.
