Do you feel cramped in your home? Well, many people do but then again many people do not know much about home interiors and gardens. There are many home interiors design tips that can remarkably alter the look and feel of a home through some cosmetic changes and leave the same dwelling place unrecognizable to the dwellers.

There are several factors like light, furniture style, arrangement, paint, and minor accessories that affect the appearance of home interiors and gardens in a far more serious way than more people ever think about. That is what keeps home interior design professionals in business.

The most basic thing that you can learn from them when it comes to home interiors and gardens is that beneficial changes do not have to be expensive or difficult. Surprisingly, the first bit of advice for home interiors design is not related to design. Just keep the place neat and tidy. Clutter takes up space and if you are feeling cramped then just close your eyes and think how appealing a bed looks when it is made and how you wish someone would make the bed when it is not.

Well, tidiness is nothing revolutionary or radical, we need order around us and a lack of order is not going to feel comfortable no matter how much it appeals to the laziness hidden within each of us. So get a drawer instead of a counter-top and start storing unwanted items instead of putting them up where they are always imprinting on your retina.

Besides ordinary clutter a big culprit are books that tend to scatter themselves as bread crumbs if you are not careful. Good home interiors design for people who like books is never complete without a bookshelf and use it once you do get it. It is not usual to find home interiors loaded with storage spaces or other accessories that are left unused. This tendency is especially found in people who are hoarders by nature and end up feeling confused to the point of inaction when they must decide what to keep and what to discard. Just close you eyes and follow the one-year-mantra. If you have not used it, worn it, read it, or needed it in the past year then you might as lose it. Despite the fact that Murphy's Laws still hold and that if something can go wrong it will, this is a bit of sound home interiors design advice that you can make use of.

Light is a very important factor in home interiors design. While the plant life in the garden needs life, the room interiors feel more breathable when they are well lit. Darkness is closely associated with claustrophobia so stay away from dark shades and low wattage lighting fixtures.

Finally, furniture placement is not something that involves throwing a chair by the window and the bed against the wall (or the other way around if you prefer). When purchasing furniture for a small square footage always go for height rather than width and always arrange the furniture in a "facing" or conversation placement.
