Lay geometric tiles in an ombré pattern to bring a modern edge to a room with industrial elements. A small bathroom creates some design challenges. You have to be far more thoughtful about how you use every square inch of space. You often can’t do much about the toilet, shower or bathtub, but you can make a big difference in your bathroom’s look by updating your vanity.

Baskets can be used to store and display books, architectural and decor magazines, toys, towels and blankets to name a few. Place a couple of small wicker baskets on the counter-tops in your kitchen to beautifully display and store your fruit and vegetables.

Whatever it is, choose something that will draw attention. In this room the fireplace and the lighting work together as a collective focal point, bringing your eye right to the center of the composition and anchoring it there.

When you place the furniture in your living room, aim for a similar sense of balance and intimacy. "A conversation area that has a U-shape, with a sofa and two chairs facing each other at each end of the coffee table, or an H-shape, with a sofa directly across from two chairs and a coffee table in the middle, is ideal," says Michelle Lynne, a Dallas-based stager. One common mistake to avoid: Pushing all the furniture against the walls. "People do that because they think it will make their room look bigger, but in reality, floating the furniture away from the walls makes the room feel larger," she says.

In this kitchen seating area, the backsplash is lit, the artwork is highlighted and the cabinet interiors are filled with light. One central lighting fixture would not have had nearly the same dramatic result. Professionals build layers of lighting to create interest, intrigue and variety. In a room where everything is lit evenly, nothing stands out. Pick a focal point and perhaps a secondary focal point and highlight those. Add general ambient lighting and some lower lighting, like table lamps, for interest.

The lovely exception is if you have the opportunity to simply buy what you like and build the perfect room around it.

A good design brief should focus on the outcome of the design. A design brief is often referred to as a scope of works. It includes details on all elements that need to be covered in the project, a shopping list of needs and wants, together with ideas on the budget and timeline.

Study the possible movement patterns on your floorplans – use different colours to track possible routes. Flipping the orientation and configuration of furniture in a room can dramatically improve the experience of how you live within it.
