Timeless Interior Design For Your Home


Have you ever looked through older magazines and thought, “Wow, I could see that trend in today’s homes!” Well, you’re not alone; that’s the beauty of timeless design! How is it that some homes look dated and old, while others look up-to-date and trendy? If you’re looking for tips to have your interior design ideas stand the test of time, read on for some suggestions from the team at Lake Hallie Cabinets & Design:

Choose Colors With Staying Power

The first tip we have for you is “staying power.” If you’re looking to have a home with a timeless look, seek out designs, colors, and styles that are “classic” and have been created to last. Black, white, beige and charcoal are examples of colors that not only have staying power but allow for flexibility with accent colors and furniture.

Design Your Home with a Classic Style

One of the keys to having a classic interior design style is steering towards timeless elements. For example, try using natural components such as brick, stone, wood, and natural fibers like cotton. These pieces bring the outside inward and can create an effect that lasts the test of time.

Try To Spot Design Fads

When you’re trying to create a timeless design, pulling from current trends may present challenges. Does it have staying power or is it simply another fad? Of course, there is wiggle-room on how you decide to incorporate your designs. We choose to recommend a balance between designs from the past as well as the present to give your home that classic look. You can even be creative and apply your own unique twists. It is your home, after all.

Your Home’s Interior Should Be Functional

Finally, be sure your design is functional. A key factor is furniture and whether or not it's a practical fit for the room it’s located in. Does it truly have a sense of belonging; is ? You may want to stay away from any furniture that is a fit style-wise but dominates the room with it’s size. Less is more with functional design so try to avoid lots of patterns and tons of decorations– keep it simple.
