As a homeowner, you will go through periods of transformation, and your house will reflect this. Your tastes will change along with trending current styles. To make your house look classy, you need to transform it from outdated traditional to contemporary chic by considering the following:
Moulding helps complete the look of a room and makes better use of light along with fine drapery. Knowing where to use wooden flooring and carpeting can really tie a room together. Modern designs allow you to incorporate as much space as possible into your layout.
Crown moulding is nothing new. In fact, it dates back to ancient Egyptians and well into prominence by the French aristocracy. Yet as old as the architectural style is, it's proven to be timeless. But, long gone are the days of floral finishes and curved smoothing. Instead, trendy and modern living rooms include crown moulding with an elegant tiered finish. A touch of elegance that works by contrasting light between hard surfaces. Fortunately, you don't have to break the bank for a moulding finish, but you should install the widest trim you can afford.
It's always best to avoid curtains and drapery that are too short for your windows. Short draperies and curtains can make your living room look cheap and outdated. With their flowing nature, longer curtains and voile fittings ooze elegance. Modern living room ideas have provisions for adjusting the rail higher, so the drapery hangs just above the floor. Your windows need to look bigger than they really are to make a grand impression. Plus, longer curtains will trick the eye into thinking there's more light in the available space. Great for smaller rooms.
There aren't many things more comforting than a well-fitted and high-quality carpet in your favourite room. It's a treat for your feet to grace your home with a beautiful floor covering. When chosen appropriately, a rug or carpet will elegantly finish a room. However, wooden floorings are made from versatile and beautiful planks that add a classy finish to any room. Wood is also soft and provides earthy tones and a natural and pleasant scent. However, even cheaper laminate flooring looks impressive when paired with a plush area rug.
When a buyer looks around your home, two of the most influential rooms are the kitchen and bathroom. Unfortunately, outdated eating and bathing areas can prevent a sale. So, if you are looking to sell, you must modernize your kitchen and bathroom later on. However, if you plan to stay in your forever home, it's even more essential. Fortunately, reputable DIY specialists offer a vast range of stylish and contemporary designs to suit any budget. For a small fee or downpayment, you rid your "housebarrassment" and make your neighbours green with envy.
A trending design style that has taken hold over the past twenty years is the integration of functional rooms into one space. Known as open-plan, this is a classy-looking design style that looks to be the hallmark of modernization for the foreseeable future. Living room furniture and kitchen and dining areas seamlessly blend into one large area. Usually, this is accompanied by renovations like skylights for extra natural light and floor to ceiling windows and doors with a backyard view. However, an open plan can become expensive depending on the work required.
Making your home look classy can be as simple as changing the flooring or as complex as making structural changes. At Furniture in Fashion, we offer a stunning range of furniture for every room to match all currently trending design preferences.
