- Keep surfaces & floor spaces as clear as possible:–
In today’s market where square feet area in residence is a big constraint, Keeping the floor space & horizontal surfaces like table tops, counter tops etc as clear as possible will allow more light to spread through each room make the room feel spacious.
- Paint it White:
Major surface areas like walls flooring Ceiling can be painted white. Painting the whole space in the same colour will again add on to the visual space & can be soothing to the eyes. Stick to neutral colour tones. Pop if the colour is common in Scandinavian theme but it is better left to accessories or furnishings.

- Make sure all Items have a purpose or Sentimental Value:
Decluttering is the key, Less is More it all applies to Scandinavian, Posses as fewer items as possible which have a purpose & significant use in your day to day lives or is really close to your heart.
- Accessorize with Lights and plants:
These are both useful items, Lighting is very underestimated design aspect. Good lighting can transform a room & it has a very positive impact on our moods.

- Use textures & Colours in fabric to stop making the house look clinical
As said before the main colour theme of Scandinavian is white & neutral if it is not balanced out with different textures & colours it starts looking very clinical. Materials & Fabrics are the easiest & cheapest way to add cosiness to the room. Rugs throw, cushions, curtains instantly add liveliness to space.
