Every project is a world. That's why the first thing you have to do is think about the use that will be given to a space and plan it with this in mind.

Once you have a clear idea of the use that will be given to a space, choose the materials that best suit it. For example, in an entrance it is better to place a floor that is easy to maintain rather than a carpet, which may be more recommendable in a bedroom that we want to give warmth to.

4. 5. Insulation

If natural light is very important, artificial light is not far behind either.

It plans the points of light to be able to create different atmospheres depending on the needs of each moment. Always place a general ceiling lamp and other support lamps on the tables for more intimate lighting. A booster can also be very advisable.

6. 2. Distribution

Once we have chromatic coherence in an interior, we need a variety of textures so as not to fall into monotony and boredom. Select pieces of wood, natural fibers, stones, with shiny, rough, smooth, metallic, cozy textiles.

Plants cannot be missing either.

9. 9. Harmony

The line between a dreary interior and the "antique shop" look is very fine. It seeks a balance between full and empty spaces.

For example, if you want to place a sculptured lamp or a wallpaper with personality, don't place other pieces that fight for prominence and end up overwhelming.
