3 Interior Design Tips

YES Communities 09/21/2022

The surroundings in our lives have an impact on our mood and the way we feel. That is why we want to feel comfortable and happy in our homes. Interior design can help create a space that we can come home to and feel relaxed. However, turning a house into a home can seem like a very daunting task. Wither it’s a site-built home, apartment, or manufactured home, these 3 tricks can help make the process seem a little less scary. 

Rule of 3’s 

The basics to understanding the Rule of 3’s is to know that our brains find objects that are arranged in odd numbers more appealing, memorable, and effective than even-numbered groupings. This works in all elements of design. Most commonly people use the rule of 3’s when hanging artwork but it can also work when trying to place lighting, furniture, or elements of color. For example, if you are deciding the color scheme of a room it is a good idea to pick three colors and base the design around those to create a theme. Choosing only two colors can make a room feel flat.  Adding a third color helps to add some dimension 

Natural Light 

Natural light can also play a major role in elevating the interior and is one of the easiest and most affordable design elements you can add to your home. Light always makes a home seem larger and more welcoming. To keep a room minimal and bright, try using shades instead of curtains. Make use of your windows as much as possible, windows allow ample natural light in so that it can bounce around the home. If the home doesn’t have as many windows as you would like, you can always try hanging mirrors or using LED bulbs to mimic natural light. You can also try using lighter/natural colors though out the home to help make certain rooms appear larger. Natural colors can also mimic a minimalist look. 

Less is More

A minimally designed manufactured home can still reflect the homeowner’s style without making it seemed cluttered and over decorated. When getting started with taking a minimalist design approach remember to take it one step at a time and clean as you go. Slowly start to get rid of the extra items you have in your manufactured home. For example, having multiple of the same size pots and pans. Get creative with the space you have, utilize your storage, if storage is limited, find furniture that has multiple functions. It is important to remember that everything in your home should serve a purpose. 

Whether you are renting or buying a home, these tips should give you ideas on how to design your manufactured home. Give them a try and let us know which one helped you the most! Always remember the rule of 3’s, that natural light is your best friend, and less is more!
