If you’re like most people and cannot afford to hire an interior designer every time you’d like to redecorate your house or give a room an upgrade, here are some tips on how to make your DIY effort look showroom quality.

When it comes to buying furniture, do not trust your eyes. Trust your measuring tape. Trying to eyeball a couch or chair to determine whether it’s the right size for a room is inviting frustration. Before you go shopping, carefully measure the space where the piece of furniture will go. Also, pay attention to room size; while a big loveseat might fit, you don’t want it looking out of scale with the rest of the room.

Even non-designer furniture is expensive, so only buy what you need. While stores like to present living room or bedroom sets, it often makes the most sense to go a la carte. Pick and choose what you really want and leave the rest on the showroom floor. Also, in lieu of a matching loveseat consider getting two chairs, which can be used as a kind of decorative accent when clad in complementary colors.

Lighting can make or break a room. The trick is to have more than one light source so that you can adjust the lights to fit the mood you are trying to achieve. For example, overhead or recessed lights tend to show every nook and cranny and can be harsh. Table lamps, floor lamps, and wall-mounted lamps add warmth to a room. If you have artwork, consider investing in small pin lights to better show off the piece.
