A lot of that has to do with how you style the room. Often it can be the little details that make the biggest of difference. Which is why i thought I would share with you some of the ways you can create a designer look in any room. Just by following these simples steps and tips. 

Fresh flowers can brighten up a room

When it comes to designing a room, it can often be the little touches that give it some life. One great way to do this is by using fresh flowers. Placed on a shelf or on a window sill they can instantly catch your eye as you enter the room. The beauty of using fresh flowers is that you can incorporate the colour scheme of the room. Also by using seasonal flowers you can save a fair bit of money too. A great thing to consider would be to head online and use an online florist. Enabling you to get a fresh delivery just as you need to brighten up a living space. 

Think about the lighting

Lighting is key to creating an atmosphere in any room. Whether that is using as much natural light as possible. Or making the mood calmer and more collected using candles and low lighting options. A designer element could be to consider a statement light fitting. Something chic like a chandelier or a more modern twist taking in more metallic elements. It would all depend on the theme of the room itself. Make sure you give your windows the chance to let in that all important natural light for living spaces. A great way to do this is not to dress the windows too heavily. 

Consider the soft furnishings

Any living space, be that a living room or a bedroom has the need for soft furnishings. But this is where you can overdo it if you are not careful. Using different soft furnishings like cushions and blankets are a great way to style up a room and provide its purpose. But the trick is not to have too many where the room can appear cluttered. There are some great tutorials online that offer advice on how to style your home. 

Add a feature wall

If you want to draw attention to the room, then a great idea is to add a feature wall. There are many ways you can do this. Some of the most popular would be painting one wall in an alternative colour. Or choosing something a little more unique by adding a picture collage to the wall. A great idea is to consider black and white photographs to make the wall more dramatic. 

Make a statement with the flooring

Finally, don’t forget the power of the flooring. They can add a real statement to the room. Wooden flooring can be used in many living spaces. Although some people like the feel of carpet under their feet. Whatever you choose don’t be afraid to be bold in your choices. 

I hope this helps you give any room a designer feel.
