THE THREE RULES TO ABIDE BY FOR GREAT
1. Get the layout right
If you’ve just bought a house, it’s unlikely the layout will be right for your family’s needs. Try to avoid simply copying previous ideas. If a sofa is originally set in a particular space, don't feel the need to do the same! Think about how you want your house to look and feel.
Too often, I see people buy the wrong size furniture for their home. Don’t just look at style - size is just as important. Many people just impulse buy which often leads to things not fitting in their house and taking it back is too much hassle. Make sure you measure areas of your home that you want to add too.
Lighting and mirrors. Positioning is key and can make a huge difference to the perceived size of the room, and they work brilliantly as great statement pieces. Lights with warm tones give a completely different aesthetic to cool tone bulbs, changing the mood of a room. On an additional note, make sure the lights compliment your colour theme.
