Decorating a room can be a very difficult job. Not many people have strong design skills which can be used to do this sort of job. Putting the pieces together to make something look beautiful is never an easy feat. Most people find that they are more able to recognise beauty, rather than being able to create it from nothing. So, to help you with your interior design skills, this post will be going through three popular styles and the elements which make them look great. This should give you a good understanding of what it takes to build your own styles.
To start, the first style this post will be going through is a classic one. Imagine having a room filled with wooden and leather furniture. Old, dusty books fill the shelves, with ornate little trinkets and tools surrounding them. The floors are made from bare wood, like most of the furniture, and are also covered with intricate rugs. And, the lamps and light fittings are covered with light coloured fabrics with little smatterings of colour. For a settee, a classic Chesterfield leather sofa will do the job well. And, for tables and chairs, you will have the best luck looking in high-end second-hand furniture stores. The walls in a room like this will often either have wood on them or nice and detailed wallpaper. But, this is the area where you have the most room for creativity with a style like this. Use websites like Instagram to teach you a little more about this sort of look.
In recent years, a lot of homes have adopted a very similar look. Sleek, straight lines are becoming a staple in modern interior design. Furniture is blocky and simple, embracing the textures in the materials it’s made from to give it character. Unfortunately, though, this sort of style is far too often ruined when people buy every item from Ikea. Of course, this isn’t to say a store like this is bad. But, too many people rely on their items. And, this can be boring. Instead, it can be better to create your own minimalist furniture. With a pot of white paint and some bare wood, it’s possible to create a room which looks like it’s popped right out of Scandinavia.
Some people will want to take the modern look a lot further, though. And, one of the best ways to do this is by incorporating tech into it. Imagine living in a home with lights that turn on when you walk into a room. Music can follow you around the home, using speakers which can answer questions and help you with your day-to-day life. And, of course, little things like curtains and windows can be opened and closed at the touch of a button. Home automation is becoming a lot cheaper, nowadays. With options like Google’s Home suite, it’s possible to have loads of the aspects of your home controlled by computers. This is a great way to make your home feel slick and stylish, as well as alive with tech.
Hopefully, this post will inspire you to divert from the norm just a little bit, when you’re planning your next renovation. There are loads of unique styles out there. But, you can’t just copy them. Instead, you should be looking to add a twist or two which no one else will have.
