Easy Design Upgrades to Keep your House Trendy
Keeping your home stylish and elegant can be hard and expensive. However, if you know what you want, designing your house should be easy. We have put together a list of simple ways to keep your home trendy at a low budget.
Accessorize your house
Accessorize your house to bring a trendy touch to your space. There are many ways of accessorizing your room and still stick to your budget. You can try working with gold. Gold brings out a wealthy look and can instantly create a trendy look, as long as you don’t use too much gold. Use gold-legged tables, gold mirrors, or gold picture frames to bring an elegance feeling into your house.
Throw pillows are an easy way to brighten and accessorize your room. Replace your old throw pillows with brighter ones. You can choose to mix and match your pillows’ colors and texture. Throw pillows brighten the place to bring a lively feeling in your house. You can purchase all these accessories at your nearest trendy shops like Darby’s furniture.
Color-block the wall
Color-blocking is the most remarkable way of the statement in any room without using hang arts. It involves paring up two contrasting colors to create a focal point in your room.
For a proper graphic statement, color-block your wall by painting half of the wall with bold color and the other half with a neutral color. Examples of the universal color blocking shades include pink and green, purple and light blue, blue and white, plus many other complimenting colors. Color blocking your wall will take your color scheming to another level of elegance.
Lighting is a vital aspect of your home design; you can manipulate your house atmosphere by positioning your light and the fixtures you use. Lately, homeowners have shifted to colors such as grey and soft gold lighting since they blend perfectly with almost any décor.
Industrial lighting has always been accompanied by rustic finishes and neutral colors which emphasis on metal. Use the modern retro lighting to create a unique look in your kitchen and dining areas. To enhance the retro industrial lighting style, you can add vintage Edison bulbs to enhance some warmth and beauty. Natural lighting is also crucial to a room; make sure you do not block windows to allow natural lights.
Keep your house clean and uncluttered
The best way of keeping your house trendy and elegant is by keeping it tidy. It would be best if you decluttered your home, dust, and vacuum clean at least every week.
Cleaning allows you to detect any stains and spots on your rugs and taking care of them quickly before they are damaged. Cleaning your windows allows natural lighting to fill the room, which gives a feel of nature in your house.
Getting rid of the things you no longer use makes you feel better about your home. You can donate the old stuff you no longer need, or if they are damaged, you can dispose of them. Decluttering also allows other elements such as throw pillows, lighting, and accessories to stand out.
Use hardwood instead of carpet
Wall to wall carpeting in a house can make it warm and soft, but a hardwood floor will give your room a trendy and elegant look. Hardwood can be pricey as compared to carpets, but its durability cannot be matched.
Before buying your hardwood, you may need to research the type of wood that matches your budget. You will note that cherry is more expensive than oak and birch. Consider going for a dark color to bring out a more luxurious look. You may need to add some bright rugs to bring about the complete natural design.
Treat your windows
Window treatment requires elegant fabrics such as cotton and natural silk, which brings a cozy look into your room. When dressing your windows, avoid see-through materials to create a sleeker look into your house. Creating creative ties on your curtains makes your room trendier and attractive. You can make your curtains more elegant by tying them using a leather belt or a matching string.
Everyone loves coming back to a cozy home after a long at work or out running your errands. Consider using these tips to give your house a trendy look.
