What Interior Designers Notice When You Invite Them In
The first rule of design is everyone’s taste is different. But interior designers know so much about trends and style that they can’t help but make some judgments when they come into your home. Here are a few things that Interior Designers notice.
When people walk into a room and they like the ambiance, it’s because the lighting. A room’s design has a variety of light sources, including recessed, sconces, hanging fixtures and more.
Within minutes of walking into a room, designers will already have reconfigured the furniture. If the sofa is against the wall, we’ll move it (in our minds.) Even clients with good taste misplace the sofa.
Interior Designers Notice Flowers.
Small accents can say a lot and designers always takes note. Little touches help a space feel like a home, including flowers by the door, an organized-but-used entry way and a easily accessible bar.
The Pillow Count.
In this case, more is always better. A sofa needs more than two sad throw pillows. More pillows make the sofa so much cozier.
Interior Designers Notice the Organization on the shelves.
How you organize your books says a lot. Books stacked in piles generally show that no one is reading them and they are there as decorative props. Make books looks accessible, read and easy to reach.
The trim, crowns and other millwork casings establish the look and foundation of a room. Be caefrul! Cheap stock trim or casing can’t be unseen.
Interior Designers Notice the Smells.
Candles have their place. Be careful! Nothing is worse than an overwhelming fragrance as you enter a home. Whether it’s too many candles, a powerful diffuser or incense, don’t overpower the room. It looks like you’re trying to hide something.
