Interior planning for your new townhouse

On a tight budget? It doesn’t matter. Even if you are working to a budget, you can easily create a new look that is personalised and looks like it came straight from a magazine cover.

Check out the below decorating interior tips and ideas that will add some flair to your townhouse development.

Use each room like a blank slate

Be sure to take note of the preexisting features within your home that can highlight your decorating ideas. Look for architectural details like wooden beams, built-in bookshelves, crown moulding, hardwood floors and tile backsplashes that are something you want to add focus to. The details won’t just appear expensive, but they actually are. You want to make these types of features as prominent as you can. Ensure that you keep these features clutter-free, clean and a focal point of your room. You don’t want to be buying something expensive like a lamp if it is trying to compete with a beautiful painting.

Adding pops of colour

Paint is very affordable, and just one coat of paint can make the room. You may need to tone down an existing colour or even add colour to liven up the area. Colour works well when you want to change the overall feel of a room. Having a nice wash of colour won’t cost much more than about $30.00 for one gallon.

Using throw pillows

A simple home décor idea for your living room is to add some throw pillows to the sofa. Throw pillows work well to accessorise and brighten the room. You can make the pillows yourself to match your theme or buy them but ensure they are bright and full pillows. You can layer the cushions and even mix the textures and colours around. In this case, though more is not better. It’s possible to have too many pillows so don’t go overboard here.

Add moulding

If your walls are bare, then you can consider adding some fancy moulding to your baseboards, ceilings and chair rails to help decorate the interior.

Interior design

Hanging artwork on the wall

Another affordable and easy way to decorate the interior of your townhouse plans, artwork. From DIY artwork to your family pictures, having framed works on the wall can make a home feel just right. Before you start mounting your artwork, ensure you have figured out where you want everything to go. This will reduce the amount of damage to the walls from putting holes and hooks in places you regret. It is vital that you check your artwork is the right size for the wall that you are putting them on. You don’t want to be putting a massive piece on a small wall or a small picture in the middle of a huge wall. If you are feeling creative head to the craft store and buy some art supplies and create your work of art.

Creating built-in structures

When you are going for cabinets or bookshelves, you want to make sure that they fit inside your home perfectly. The best way to achieve this is to have the built-in structures extend all the way to the ceiling from the floor. Bookshelves that span across the full length of the wall will look expensive than just having one standing alone against the wall.
