Everyone thinks they can do everything themselves, which isn't a bad quality, but professional interior designers have an eye for things that the average Joe doesn't even think about. When decorating small spaces, be sure the furniture you use is versatile. Instead of a sofa, consider using ottomans. This piece can increase the amount of seating in your room while providing a platform for feet. Using things that have two purposes could help you maximize a small space. Try hanging your picture frames at an eye-level, instead of higher up on a wall. Artwork hung too high gives the illusion of lower ceilings. Keeping frames at a lower level also makes them more visible, and keeps visitors from having to look up in order to see your beautiful art. Don't spend a fortune on light fixtures. Sure, putting in new fixtures can make the whole room look better, but many people make the mistake of getting them at ridiculous prices. They can be purchased for much less on various websites, including Amazon. Also, discount stores usually have lovely fixtures. </li><li> 2. Whenever undertaking an interior planning project, it is wiser to choose pieces that are timeless rather than trendy.

A simple overhead light, while it may provide lighting for the entire room, does little for the ambiance so consider adding some accent lights as well.

A great tip for interior design is to layer your window treatments. This will give your room a more elegant look and feel. It also has the added benefit of giving you better control of the natural light in your room as one of your layers can be sheer.

Fluorescent bulbs are often fine for kitchens and bathrooms. For areas like the den or living room, the softer, more subtle light of an incandescent bulb may be the better choice. All your careful interior-design decisions will be overlooked if the room you create is no longer functional. Issues like traffic flow, upkeep and your personal comfort, as well as the room's intended purpose, need to be taken into consideration before any design decisions are made for the most satisfying results. To save on some space, you can decorate your guest bedroom so that it can double as a home office. Rather than having a bed in the room, put in a futon or pull-out sofa. Some dressers can double as desks as well. Use colors in the room that are gender neutral. Get a second opinion before making big changes. If you are planning to redo your living room so that it looks like a disco from the 1970s, you may want to ask others for feedback. While your opinion counts the most, sometimes others can see flaws in functionality and style that you are just not aware of because you like your idea too much.
