Pro Tips: Finishing Touches for an Unfinished Room

Without enchanting details and mesmerizing focal points, a space feels rather empty and lifeless. Only when you add those perfectly combined finishing touches does a room gain character, style and a luxurious appeal. So, after the remodeling part comes decoration that will provide you with an opportunity to experiment and express your personality through interior design. And with these pro-inspired tips, you’ll give your home an authentic appeal.

Use a mirror for glamour

A beautiful mirror is always a great addition to a home and you can use it in every room. In the bedroom, you can place a freestanding mirror in the corner of your room, but not directly opposite your bed. If you have a small living room, you can place a vintage mirror on top of your fireplace mantel or above your sofa. Not only will it be a lovely décor statement, but it will also give a sparkle to your living room and make it seem more spacious. Furthermore, you can use a stunning mirror backsplash in the kitchen while an elegant bathtub paired up with a glamorous mirror frame will exude sophistication in the bathroom.

Decorate in odd numbers

If you’re a design newbie, you need to learn about the rule of decorating in odd numbers. Designing with odd numbers will help you create more memorable statements and accent details. It will also provide you with an opportunity to mix different designs, textures and shapes to create a stunning visual appeal. However, you should still aim for a cohesive look, so make sure to link your odd items through one similar feature, such as colour, texture or pattern.

Introduce personal details

Your home should reflect your personality and taste, so you should add a few personal details to your space. From personal photographs to travel memorabilia, personal objects can truly add character to a room. However, in order to avoid creating clutter, you should choose items that you really love and that remind you of cherished memories. Let your personal objects tell a story about you that you would like to be told.

Add texture and depth through vintage design

Not only will different materials create a deep, layered look in your home, but they will also embellish it with enchanting patterns. And with the help of design icon Florence Broadhurst, you can create a lush home with a vintage flair. Transforming your bedroom into a glamorous sanctuary will be easy if you layer soft, lush covers on your comfy bed. In the living room, cosy cushions with lovely patterns will create an ambiance of relaxation and comfort. Of course, you shouldn’t forget to add several soft towels to your bathroom and give it a spa-like vibe.

Create a focal point

Every room needs a focal point, a piece that will stand out and work as an enticing statement. This is particularly important if your home features a monochromatic, subtle colour scheme and design that may come across as slightly monotone. For example, in the bedroom, you can have an accent wall painted in a conspicuous hue while in the bathroom, you can add a lush chandelier above your tub. When it comes to your living room, you can use a beautifully designed sofa or a vintage armchair as the focal point. Having created a focal point, you need to surround it with subtle yet chic decorations that will accentuate it even further.

Don’t forget artwork

Bare walls make a space seem empty and devoid of personality, so you should definitely embellish yours with inspiring artwork. Nowadays, there’s so much inspiration for wall art and all you need to do is tap into your creativity. You can create a mesmerising gallery wall and exhibit your favourite works of art in combination with other lovely details, such as artsy installations and crafts. On the other hand, you can go with a single, statement piece that will stand out as the focal point in a room. For a cohesive, harmonious look, you can use details from a painting, such as colours or motifs, for decorative details throughout your room.

Embrace plants

The moment you introduce houseplants to your space, your home will seem livelier and more open. Not only will plants introduce a splash of vibrant green to your space, but they will also provide you with an opportunity to experiment with different pot designs. From hanging planters and lovely terrariums to stunning vertical gardens, greenery will help you create an atmosphere of freshness, energy and style.

Finishing touches will give your space an authentic charm and help you design a room that truly reflects your style and personality.
