At Ferntree Homes, we are constantly in touch with professional home interior designers. Professional interior designers are experts at playing up your house’s strengths, hiding its flaws, and making it appealing.

We talked to several pros across the country to get their tips for freshening up your home’s interior—without breaking the bank.

1 -The Front Door Should Set The Tone

Want to make a great first impression? Why not paint your front door a fun colour or in a glossy hue? In many cultures, red represents safety and sometimes even luck. Other colours you could try are orange and yellow which both are associated with warmth and joy.

2 – Hang at Least One Mirror in Every Room

Mirrors can make a space feel brighter as they reflect light around a room. However do not hang a mirror opposite to a window as the light will be bounced right back out. Put mirrors on walls perpendicular to windows.

2. Keep Wall Colours Light and Neutral

We suggest this as it will help minimalise jarring transitions. Neutral and light coloured walls give you the greatest decorating flexibility, allowing you to easily switch up your accessories. Besides this, painting them the same neutral colour helps them feel larger. 

4. Let The Sun Shine In

If your home gets a lot of sun, opt for light colours that won’t fade in time. The most recommended lightweight fabrics for panels are cotton, linen, and silk blends because they tend to hang well. Also keep in mind that window dressings should be functional and elegant.

3. Make Sure Your Sofa Talks to Your Chairs

The best example that we can provide is of a Hotel. Imagine a nice hotel lobby. The furniture is always arranged in groupings that invite conversation. When you place the furniture in your living room, aim for a similar sense of balance and intimacy. This will always foster a nice home feeling in any space of your home that has furniture.
