How to be an Interior Design Guru or Fail Trying
Most people have an interest in interior design to some degree. Whether they own their own property and are in the process of beautifying it to make it feel like more of a home, they’ve discovered the benefits of good interior design in the workplace and how it boosts employee productivity, or they want to make life at home much more comfortable and enjoyable, there are many benefits to becoming an ‘interior design guru’. What follows are a few tips on how to become a design guru or fail trying.
# Know What You Like
No interior design guru has a love of all design styles and furniture, so it’s very important that each and every one of us develops a good understanding of the designs and styles that we like. Even Perth furniture gurus Webber Furniture had to start by identifying what they like and what doesn’t appeal to them, so it’s always important to get a feeling for our preferences and favourites.
# Learn About Colours
Colours are very important with regard to all aspects of interior design, from selecting beautiful armadillo rugs for the living room (or even the bedroom as they feel great underfoot on cold winter mornings) to workstations and desks for home offices, along with dining tables that seat the entire family comfortably.
# Trends in Interior Design
Scandinavian furniture trends are very important in the modern era and there’s so much more to furniture from this part of the world than what can be found in a local Ikea store. Anyone that’s interested in becoming an interior design guru needs to have a good understanding of interior design trends, including modern and traditional trends.
Without an understanding of trends, it can be very difficult to discuss interior design, what’s currently popular and what went of style yesterday, with any conviction. Offering convincing opinions is all part of being an interior design guru, one that others will look to for advice on a wide range of topics and issues, from using natural light to the reasons behind the use of clean lines in Scandinavian furniture design.
# Read, Watch and Listen
No one becomes an interior design guru by chance as there’s a lot of learning involved. In fact, there’s so much learning involved that anyone interested in becoming a guru must really love interior design to bother making the effort. Having said that, there are many excellent sources of information that can increase one’s understanding of interior design trends and the history behind these trends, so read articles, watch videos and listen to what others say on a wide range of topics relating to interior design. That’s how many people have earned the enviable reputation as an ‘interior design guru’!
In conclusion, becoming a design guru is very beneficial regardless of what one hopes to achieve, whether that’s to forge a career in the industry, to make their home more attractive and appealing to potential homebuyers, or to reside in a home that’s beautiful, comfortable and aesthetically pleasing.
