Have you ever gone through someone’s wonderful Instagram profile where every photo exceeds the previous one? Their home looks stunning Then you look around and there you are, sitting in your cute (but very bare) apartment, just wondering how do they do it? You might think those people who have stunning interiors must spend thousands of dollars on expensive furniture, branded accessories, signed pieces of art and professional interior designers to put it all together. More often than not, you’d be wrong. All it takes is some careful planning, preparation and a few pro tips you can find in this guide. Here are five easy and effective ways you can make your home Instagram friendly.
If you want to always have a good backdrop for your photographs, try to create a theme in your living room or bedroom. In the end, you will surely get a unique room that is a piece of art on its own. It doesn’t matter whether your theme is based on a set of colours or a specific design. It totally depends on you. Just make sure to pay attention to balance. Another good piece of advice is to design your interior starting from furniture and only after you’ve chosen your biggest pieces should you start thinking about wall colours and accessories. If you don’t know where to start, start searching the Internet for inspiration and “steal” a few ideas.
When you scroll through some designer’s photos, you’ll notice that their works focus on a single piece of furniture that simply takes your breath away and makes you want to go online and order it right that second. With that being said, don’t hesitate to invest in a piece of furniture that will serve as a focal point of a room the next time you decide to remodel. For instance, at the moment, interior designers are paying extra attention to extraordinary bathtubs. Their Instagram profiles are full of lovely pictures of bathrooms with these phenomenal pieces. Feel free to take some inspiration from the experts because they know best, but also try to give the room your personal touch.
Bring some nature in
No-one can stay indifferent to seeing a natural element in an indoor space, especially if you spend your days in a big city surrounded by concrete, plastic and artificial things everywhere you look. Find a beautiful big plant that will grace that empty corner of your living room or make your hallway come to life with a fresh bouquet of roses. If your home has a more rustic vibe, you can decorate your work desk with some colorful wildflowers. Plants will not only make every angle of your home Instagram ready but they’ll also make you feel more vigorous, boost your concentration and relieve stress. It’s a win-win scenario!
Hang a piece of art
Walls are where you can really express your creativity. You can hang a huge art piece that will instantly attract the attention of everyone who enters the room. Don’t panic, you don’t need to spend a lot for this to be the case. It doesn’t have to be a painting of a renowned artist. You can opt for everything from professionally printed to framed quotes and motivational posters. There’s absolutely no limit – you can even opt to hang your personal DIY projects. Don’t be afraid to show your creativity to the world. Your walls are your canvas.
Instagram loves good lightning
Let’s be realistic – no matter how beautiful or well-designed your home is, you’ll never be able to fully demonstrate its beauty without some good lighting. That’s why you should try your best to open your space up and introduce as much natural light as possible. Additionally, find a gorgeous chandelier for your living room or bedroom – you’ve ticked off two things here with good lighting and a stand out piece. Don’t forget the decorative candles and lamps either, which will give your every recorded moment a particularly romantic atmosphere.
As you can see, you don’t need to spend a hefty sum or hire a pro interior designer to make you home Instagram-friendly. So, put the phone down and stop scrolling for a moment. Get to work on creating that beautiful space, and once you’re finished, celebrate with a Insta photo session. Showcase your skills and capture your work!
