Interior Designs For Homes

Your Guide To Interior Designs For Homes

Thinking of renovating your home or office, or perhaps building a new space from scratch? You’ll need more than a sense of partition to create a space that’s not only livable but conducive for daily living or working as well. This is where interior design comes in.

Good interior design has three basic qualities: aesthetics, functionality, and cost-effectiveness. Needless to say, your final space must be aesthetically pleasing, functional, and cost-effective on your budget. Is this actually possible, with the high cost of materials, furniture, fixtures, and home accessories? With the right planning (and of course, the expertise of an interior designer), you are bound to have your dream space at a cost that fits your budget.

There are countless interior design styles to choose from. Your interior designer can help you choose, but you can actually pore over magazines and websites by yourself for your preliminary research to give you an overview of common design styles that can be your next dream space.

Space-Based Interior Designs For Homes

The amount and the kind of space you have often determine the most suitable style which will fulfill all design requirements (aesthetics, functionality, and cost-effectiveness). The principle behind this is to maximise the space available so you incorporate everything you need as well as dress up your space properly.

The small space design is perfect for limited spaces. Think about built-in cabinets, full-wall shelves, storage units under the beds, under the couches, and just about any furniture to be used. Sofa beds will be of great use, with the living room doubling as the bedroom, and with little to no full-wall partitions. Strategically placed furniture can serve as partition from one room to another, and big mirrors often accentuate a corner to create the illusion of a bigger, wider space.

The loft, on the other hand, is entirely space-based. In short, you have to have a loft, so to speak. The loft is a facet of modern design and is actually a space saver for you use up your space’s upper portion, usually for your bedroom, and subsequently free up the space below for your living room, dining area, and kitchen.

Theme-Based Interior Designs For Homes

Aside from the amount of space, interior design styles can be all about the design—color, lines, materials, and shapes. It’s all about creating a space whose elements complement one another in all the above respects, bringing together a space that’s unified and cohesive.

Modern interior design is the most popular today. It uses minimal details—also called the minimalist style—and a limited colour palette (usually two to three tones only), with some opting to accentuate with a striking color on just one corner, such as a bright-colored artwork hanging on a wall against all the blacks, whites, and grays of the space. Think about straight lines, rigid furniture, and the occasional bold pattern for accents.

The classic interior design style, on the other hand, is the more traditional type and may use classic, vintage details in furniture and fixtures, such as lighting (chandeliers), tables and chairs, couches, and shelves. In contrast to modern and minimalist designs, the classical design has rich detail to convey opulence, and uses fluid, curly, and curved lines and shapes instead of straight lines.
