Are you not sure where to begin designing your home? We’re here to help! We know first-hand how hard it can be, so we’ve rounded up a few of our basic steps to making your home look the way you’ve always dreamed! It’s a lot easier than you may think to design your own space, so follow along!
You can never go wrong with a white room.
White rooms have been all the rage for a while now, and I don’t see that trend ending any time soon. White paint makes a room feel open, airy, and bright, while providing the perfect backdrop for whatever accent colors you choose to throw in. Also, if your tastes change often, you won’t have to repaint to match your latest design choices.
Change out the lighting.
There is nothing worse than feeling like you are under interrogation lights. There are many ways to address this. Adding dimmers to your switches is relatively easy, and do your best to vary the heights of lighting in a room. You don’t want everything on the same plane. Use soft pink light bulbs for a flattering glow. In the picture above of this amazing kitchen, you will notice ceiling lights, pendant lights, and then task lighting under the range hood.
Add architectural interest to the space.
There is no better way to elevate your room and increase the value of your home then by adding architectural details. There are many ways to achieve this look. Adding wainscoting (like you see in this picture), crown molding, or ceiling beams are some great examples.
Choose a variety of seating.
No more matching sets! If you already own a matched set, try upholstering or painting some of the pieces or moving pieces to another room. For example, a night stand can be an end table in your family room.
Browse through home pictures, and you’ll be hard pressed to find one that does not contain some greenery or some fresh flowers. Potted plants add softness, and flowers add life to a room. They change the whole energy in the room!
