Less is More
Minimalism truly is one of the most popular trends of recent years, and thanks to the media and designers, it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere. To implement this trend, think of ways to maximise useful space and think of only the essentials- the idea is to create a clean and open looking space by minimising clutter, useless objects and opting for more neutral and receding colours such as whites, greys, chromatic silvers and wooden tones.
The outcome of this design is a stunning, modern and luxurious appearing design reminiscent of a modern contemporary design hotel. Minimalism, although a trend also allows for a timeless elegance meaning if you want to invest your money in to a layout that is not going to look tired and need replaced quickly then this may be perfect for you. For inspiration on minimalist design, Joseph Dirand’s architectural work is worth considering.
Find Your Marble
When it comes to thinking of individual parts of a colour scheme or a décor style, it is always worth considering the implementation of marble in your home. This addition not only is more environmentally friendly on flooring but can prove to be one of the most hard-wearing substances when used on worktops and flooring alike. Marble is available in the widest spectrum of finishes, colours and can be sourced bespoke to your own specification so truly is a dream to work with when designing or updating any space.
Marble is a stunning stone which can quickly and easily elevate any room, creating a feeling or luxuriousness and opulence which looks stunning when placed in kitchens, bathrooms and even for an all-over flooring material.
Turn up the Heat
When trying to work to a slightly tighter budget, it is worth considering less-intrusive additions or changes to you home which can truly make a difference in its overall appearance.
One of the most simplistic and less-considered ways to do this is by considering your radiators and the effect updating these could have on your home and indeed on your overall carbon footprint.
For example, when considering a bathroom, if you have opted for a single-tone décor or design, an effortless and efficient way to elevate this is by adding white towel rails, which not only distribute heat inimitably but also elevate the overall appearance of the room. Trade Radiators offer a stunningly priced selection of these.
Socket to me
Another smaller job which can improve the overall appearance of a room is updating old and outdated plug outlets. This job can be done quickly and easily by anyone who is confident with DIY and by for example replacing old white plastic plug sockets to more modern and contemporary ones which match the décor of the room, this will elevate the room and tie the design together.
And so, you have it- a selection of both intrusive and non-intrusive ways to create an effortlessly stylish interior, for all budgets. I hope you have enjoyed listening to some of my tips and remember to keep posted for the next one.
