Five Interior Design Hacks That Will Have You Living Like a Rockstar

Sure, you can hire an interior designer to beautify your new home. After all, it is a blank canvas just waiting to be turned into something gorgeous. But, what if you want to do it yourself? These hacks will have your friends thinking you hired a professional. Only you will know the truth.

1. For a bigger looking area, place lights and mirrors together. The light reflection will open up the space making it appear larger and more spacious.
2. To make your ceilings look higher, try low hanging pendant lighting. Of course hang these where people won’t be walking. Position them over your coffee table, dining room table or already high vaulted ceilings.
3. Another way to give the illusion of height to a room is to hang your curtains as high as you can instead of in the traditional way, which is just above the window.
4. Paint the town – or at least your ceiling. Consider a pop of color like teal or navy so when you look up, you won’t want to look away. Use this color in your accents in the rest of the room.
5. Splurge on one or two luxurious pieces, whether a crystal chandelier in an unexpected room, think powder room, or a limited edition painting or sculpture.
