Picture Perfect: Designing A More Instagrammable Home
When it comes to creating a beautiful home, a lot of us turn to Instagram for inspiration. On there we see stunning photo after photo of other people’s picture perfect homes, so it’s no wonder we feel a little jealous at times. Do you wish that your home was an Instagram-worthy space? Don’t worry; you’re not alone – a lot more people than you think feel this way about their homes.
Now, the good news is that making your home more Instagrammable is fairly simple, it’s just as case of smartening it up (inside and out) and working out what the best angles are to snap shots from. For a more Instagrammable home that you can be proud of, here’s what you need to do:
Make maintenance and repairs a priority
Don’t make the mistake of thinking that maintenance isn’t important when it comes to creating a picture perfect home because it is crucial. Both inside and out, it’s important to deal with any maintenance issues right away, firstly to prevent further damage from occurring and secondly to ensure that your property always looks its best.
One area that far too many of us neglect is our roofs, whether you need hail damage repair or are in need of a whole new roof, it’s a cost that’s worth paying for, especially if you want your home to look the part. Believe it or not, the roof of your property plays a big part in its curb appeal and how Instagrammable it is. Other important areas include the interior and exterior paintwork, the garden, and the general smartness of the property. Not sure what needs fixing? Then have a home inspection performed.
The floor matters
When it comes to snapping a shot of a room in your home, including the floor can help to create a more eye-catching image. This means that the flooring in your home matters, and so, if you aren’t keen on the flooring that you have, or it’s old and grubby, it’s a good idea to replace it. Or, at least, invest in some new rugs to brighten the space up.
If you are thinking of replacing the flooring in your home and want something that’s eye-catching and Instagrammable, it’s a good idea to take your time picking the perfect flooring type. Whether you opt for plain marble flooring or patterned Spanish-inspired tiles, it doesn’t matter, just as long as you choose flooring that matches your home’s design style and is well fitted.
Minimalism is key, as is a focal point
When you look at all the most Instagrammable homes, the one thing that they have in common is the fact that they are designed in a minimalist way. So, if possible, it’s a good idea to make your home a more minimalist space – aka somewhere that is clutter free. The key to a clutter-free home is having plenty of smart storage space and being organised about how you store things. For storage solution ideas, have a browse online – there’s plenty of ways you can incorporate lots of storage into your home without impacting the look of the space.
As well as a minimalist space, it’s also important that each room has a focal point. This could be a beautiful fireplace, a unique piece of artwork, an eye-catching coffee table – it doesn’t matter what, just as long as it’s eye-catching.
There you have it, everything that you need to know about designing a more Instagrammable home.
