By transforming your property into an Instagram worthy abode, you can fill your feed with stunning images, attract new followers and optimise your online profile. To get started, take a look at these top tips and make your home Instagram worthy today:
Declutter Your Space
One of the first things you need to do to make your home ready for public consumption is to declutter the space. After all, you don’t want your feed to be overshadowed by things that are out of place.
To speed up the process, focus on decluttering one room at a time. That way, you’ll have some space that can be used for Instagram shoots while you’re getting the rest of your property ready. As well as discarding or donating items that you no longer need, ensure you have sufficient storage space for everything you’re going to keep so that it can be tidied away and surfaces can remain clean and clutter-free.
Refresh the Paintwork
If your walls, ceilings and skirting boards are painted, it doesn’t take long for wear and tear to show. However, repainting is relatively easy to do, and it doesn’t mean you’ll have to blow your budget either. As well as making your home look better than ever, repainting means you can update your colour palette too.
If you want to create variation in your Instagram posts, think about incorporating different colours into each room. This will enable you to create a variety of different images for use on social media. Similarly, creating a feature or accent wall will enable you to incorporate more colours and shades, as well as giving your rooms a focal point.
Use Strategic Lighting
Lighting a great way to enhance the ambience in your home but it’s also extremely important if you want to take Instagram worthy shots. The right lighting can transform your interior in a chic setting or the perfect backdrop, so take the time to get it right. Natural light is typically the best way to take great photographs, so make sure your window dressings can be opened to increase the amount of natural light that streams in through the windows.
In addition to this, you can increase the amount of natural light in your home by using mirrors to reflect it. This is a savvy way to make your interior even more Instagram-friendly but layered lighting helps too. With a range of spotlights, overhead lights and uplights, you can use lighting as a feature in your home and vary the style of the shots you take.
Update Your Interior Design
Whether you’re a fan of cottage-core or you love minimalism, your interior design should reflect your own personal tastes, as well as the latest trends. Of course, creating the perfect interior can be tricky, so don’t hesitate to get expert advice if you want to use luxury interior design to create an Instagram worthy home. With styling tips and inspiration from experienced designers, your home can be transferred into a decadent environment that’s perfect for photoshoots, content creation and even video productions.
Create a Gallery Wall
If you want to add a feature to any room or space, a gallery wall can be a great idea. Not only does it draw the eye, but it can also be used to personalise your home and create custom décor. By printing in black and white, you can make a gallery wall a discreet addition to your interior, for example, while complementing the colour palette of your surroundings.
What’s more – a gallery wall can be easy to create. By printing your own photos or having them professionally produced and choosing matching frames, you can section off a portion of the wall and create a mock-up first. When you’ve got the layout right, you simply need to hang the frames and enjoy your own handiwork.
Keep the Layout Private
If you’re active on social media, you may be used to sharing your life and your home with hundreds, thousands or even millions of followers. However, it’s important to remember that some things are better kept secret. When it comes to the layout of your property, for example, try not to showcase this on social media.
Similarly, your security features and fittings shouldn’t be public knowledge, so don’t include them on your feed. By keeping the layout of your home private, you can share information and images without putting your security at risk.
Use a Range of Textures
If you really want to make your images pop on Instagram, incorporate a range of textures into your interior design. From interior cladding on your walls to fluffy throws and organic cotton bed linen, there are endless options to choose from. When you incorporate a range of textures into your home, it enhances its design and helps to create a welcoming, warming atmosphere.
This will shine through in any shots you take, and the varying textures will also add a little more depth to your images. As a result, you’ll find that the addition of new textures makes your home more Instagram worthy than ever.
Boost Your Instagram Following Now
Whether you’re a new user or you’ve been posting images on Instagram for years, there are numerous ways you can increase your online profile and acquire more followers. Making your home ‘Instagrammable’ is a great place to start but using the latest features on the social media platform can also help you to keep things fresh and interesting.
Additionally, varying the style of shots you take and posting at regular intervals will keep your existing followers happy and entice more users to ‘like’ your posts. As you begin to transform your property, be sure to keep track of your metrics and see what a difference your Instagram worthy home makes.
