If you have been stuck for ideas on ways to spruce up your home in time for the summer, there’s no better way to get the creative juices flowing than by checking the latest trends. With so many interior design concepts out there, however, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed by them all. Making the right choice for your home will always come down to personal preference, but here are some great décor ideas for your home to inspire you this year.
Designer Appliances & Features
What better way to show your taste for design than by choosing appliances and features that are different from the norm. From fridge drawers instead of a standalone fridge unit, to decorative radiators online that come in all shapes, colours, and sizes, to even wow-factor furniture that looks just as great as they are to use. Whilst some designer pieces will cost more, there are still designer choices that do not have to break the bank, so look for similar items from high street brands to achieve a similar outcome and you’ll create a room that is magazine cover worthy.
If you find you’re spending more time at home than ever before, creating multifunctional rooms can be one way to create more space without physically having it. If you work from home more often than at an office, you’ll want to ensure that you have the setup within your home to do so and stay productive. Ideally, you’ll have a spare room to change into an office, but if you don’t have that luxury, then finding a corner of your living area or bedroom you can transform into your home office is much better than working from the sofa or even your bed. Home gyms are also possible if you have enough floor space in a lounge or dining area you can utilise; just keep an equipment setup nearby and you’re good to go.
Earthy Colours & Natural Light
Being one with nature is good for our wellbeing and health in general, but if you find your time outdoors has reduced, then you’ll want to recreate this in your home. Earthy colours include olive or forest greens, sand tones, sky blues and stone greys, all subtle and not too harsh on the eyes in terms of colour. Pairing this with lots of natural light and a natural flow of air throughout rooms can bring the outdoors in, especially if you have patio doors opening up to your own green space. Tranquillity and peace can be achieved following this décor trend. To furnish rooms in this way, you’ll want to find interesting natural wood pieces that also use lighter tones for seat cushions, blankets, and upholstery.
Having a good set of blankets, linens and other useful fabrics around the home will help to make furniture last longer and provide further comfort. Ideally, by choosing durable ones, you can ensure they are easy to clean and maintain when they need to be washed or wiped down, perfect for when you’re spending more time indoors. You can also choose contrasting colours to make these standout, following the theme of the room to pair these fabrics throughout, from sofa and chair covers, to bed runners and fabric curtains. The addition of these fabrics can easily upgrade your home effortlessly.
