How to Elevate the Design of Your Home

Interior design isn’t something that comes naturally to everyone. Although your home may look presentable, and you keep it neat and organized, that doesn’t mean it’s stylish and on trend. There comes a point where people may look around their house and feel it doesn’t properly reflect who they are. 

If this sounds familiar and you’re looking for ways to elevate the design of your home, these tips will help. Use these techniques to improve upon the current design and make your home feel stylish.

It’s About Quality Not Quantity

You’ve probably heard the saying before, but it’s one that often rings true, and, in this case, it applies. When it comes to elevating your home and making it feel more sophisticated, it’s about quality, not quantity. That means investing in furniture, finishes, décor, accessories and fixtures that are high-quality and not worrying about accumulating a lot of ‘stuff’. Granted, it can be expensive to start purchasing quality pieces only, so you can work on one room at a time or focus on pieces that will have the most impact.

It’s All About the Little Touches – Décor Changes Everything

People always say it’s the little things that count, and that couldn’t be truer when it comes to home design. Sure, you may have lovely furniture and a stylish color palette, but it’s the décor that pulls a space together and gives it a sense of uniqueness. 

Take for example a standard table that you’d place in a family room or living room. Why not jazz it up with some trendy table accessories that will make a basic table in need of some attention fresh and new? Installing new table tops on older tables is also a popular DIY project that homeowners can take on to create something fresh and customized looking. Tabletops such as tempered glass, solid wood, and reclaimed wood are all very popular.

The little touches require you to think outside the box and look at how you can elevate basic pieces.

Keep the Design Simple – Don’t Try to Do Too Much

It’s really easy to flip through décor magazines and look at photos online, making note of all the hot interior design trends. While your first instinct may be to copy everything you see, often that can result in a look that is too busy. Instead, look at the trends as inspiration, using small pieces and concepts only. You don’t want to do too much in a space, or it becomes overwhelming, and the design concept is lost.

So, how do you keep it simple? Choose a theme, color palette, or particular vibe you want that can be used throughout the home. This will ensure all the spaces flow and don’t feel disjointed or overdone.

Just because you loved the design of your home when you first moved in, doesn’t mean you’ll always feel that way. As you get older, it’s normal for your sense of design to mature and become more pronounced. Finding ways to make tweaks and updates in the home will ensure you continue to love the space and feel comfortable in it.
