Living in the dust-ridden, pollution-heavy and noisily annoying city of Delhi? The words, however offensive they may sound to a Delhiite, are unfortunately true. We breathe in the polluted air everyday. We hustle through all of it for what? So, we can finally step into our home to relax and unwind.
But what if your home isn’t equipped for that? What if your home makes you feel even more anxious? You need an interior designer to get in & fix that situation.
Let us introduce ourselves – We’re ANSA Interiors. We’re luxury interior designers in Delhi that consider building relaxing and aesthetically pleasing spaces as our passion. And today, we’re sharing just a few of the many home interior design ideas for Delhi homes that can make it a little bit easier to live & breathe in the national capital.
Keep it simple
Luxury doesn’t mean pompousness. In fact, when you have a limited space, you need to work on the motto of keeping it simple. Sophisticated furniture, soothing colours and a few intricate interior design implementations later – you can have a home that gives you that relaxing feeling that you work so hard for.
How do you do that? Here’s one thing you can do without even hiring an interior designer – decluttering. Chuck out all the non-essential and non sentimental items out of your house. Go Marie Kondo with every space in your room and clear out your homes so that good vibes can enter.
2. Invest in Designer Walls
If you’re keeping everything simple, how do you get that lux factor? There are many ways and one of our favourites as top interior designers in Delhi NCR is designer walls. With an accent wall in your room, you can be design the rest of it very easily. All you need to do once your accent wall is done is to add pieces that are in sync with the theme. That’s just it!
3. Use mirrors
If you feel you can relax more in a bigger space but due to constraint cannot move to a bigger place, you can really make your current space look more spacious. How? With use of mirrors.
Mirrors create an illusion of space & are great for functionality, as well as decoration. Use decorative mirrors in spaces like hallways & even in your rooms for a bigger space.
4. Use decorative lighting
Your existing home has the ability to look something out of an architectural magazine. How? You just need to invest in decorative lighting. Whether it’s a pendant light over your dining table or a unique piece of decorative lamp sitting in your living room, it’s upto you. What’s a given is that it will change the look and vibe of your space drastically.
As interior designers, we take scouring for the most unique pieces very seriously. We work with several vendors to create fully customized pieces, as well. They may seem little but their impact on your home interior design is tremendous.
5. Have a lot of storage space
Like we said, decluttering is the first and foremost task you need to do to turn your home into your sanctuary. What’s the leading cause of clutter in homes? It’s the lack of storage space. While investing in big items like sofas, dining tables and beds, home owners forget about the storage other than the usual walk-in closet, kitchen cabinets and cupboards. We all need a lot more than that!
You need storage space in your bathroom – hidden or incorporated into your decor. You need more storage space in your kitchen than the basic cabinets you’ve seen everywhere. Even inside those cabinets, the structure makes a lot of difference to the amount of clutter that ends up in your kitchen after weeks of use. You need your T.V. console to hide away all the wires and accommodate things like remotes, and smart devices. You need more storage in your hallways which can accommodate basic stuff that you need to maybe, when you go out of your house or when you’re accommodating guests for a Friday night dinner. You get the point. Right?
6. Pick one central theme
If your house décor is all over the place, it’s obvious that you’re suffering through anxiety. As human beings, we crave for synchronization. Imagine if all your rooms & decoration styles come together to define chaos!
Avoid that and you’ll have a home that makes you feel happier. You can do that by educating yourself about various house décor and then committing to one theme. It’s imperative that your house is designed with that one theme, and at the same time, still each room is as unique as it could get.
7. Aromatherapy & greens
Once your home interior design is fully done, there are a couple of things that will require your everlasting use but are extremely beneficial – essential oils and green plants.
Essential oils are basically compounds extracted from leaves of various plants and therapeutic in nature. They help you relax, and unwind. There have been several studies correlating combating stress, anxiety & depressing with aromatherapy. Many of such oils are also anti-bacterial in nature, thus they promote healthier living environment.
The plants help you connect with nature, even when you’re sitting in a tightly shut home environment. With Delhi facing extreme summer and winter conditions, it’s hard to hang outside for a long time. Thus, you need to bring that greenery inside and benefit from that.
Plants in your living room, bathroom, kitchen – all are a big yes. Many of these also act as air purifiers and can be a great healthy addition to your home interior design.
These are just the basics to get started with a healthier living by modifying your home environment. We hope these tips help you out.
