Becoming more design savvy

July 27, 2015 - 2 min read

Whether you’re more of a logical thinker or find it hard to come up with creative ideas, redesigning elements of your home doesn’t have to be difficult! Maybe you’re worried that changing parts of your rental will be too risky, or that your home reno wont turn out the way you wanted? Good news—whether you’re a renter or an owner, injecting your own personality into your humble abode can be super simple, and we’ve found some cool ideas to get you inspired!

In a home design slump? Never fear, here are some really awesome interior design additions that will make any home more interesting.

Swatch door


If you’re looking for something truly unique, then you can’t go past a door full of colour! Similar to a stained glass window, filling your door up with your favourite colour swatches will not only create a funky entrance for your home, but will cast a pretty awesome colour scheme over your floor when the sun shines through!

Fireplace in your coffee table


Wanting to inject a sleek feel into your living room? Why not opt for a table fire pit? Apart from being a bold centrepiece, this addition will bring an up-market mod feel into the room, reminiscent of 60’s glamour. Style aside, you’ll also be kept warm in those cooler months!

Bring the garden inside


If you grow your own fresh herbs, why not opt for a vertical herb garden? Place some shelving on an unused kitchen wall and plant your herbs. In no time at all you will have a thriving herb garden in your kitchen! Just make sure to place them in a location that get heaps of sunlight.

Hang an interior curtain


Curtains don’t have to be for windows! Create an interior curtain to separate spaces in your home. Whether you’d like a quiet reading corner in your living room, or a way to conceal the kitchen, then an interior curtain will perfectly segment a room without having to build a wall.

Give your bed a canopy


Adding a bit of romantic glamour to the bedroom doesn’t have to be cliche! You can create a canopy over your bed by hanging material from the ceiling, or adding pillars around the sides of your bed. Whichever option you choose, you’re sure to be happy with the result.
