When you’re running a busy home, we all know how hard it can be to keep your finger on the trends and styles of the day.
If you’re struggling to keep up with what’s hot and what’s not, there are always a range of décor options that can keep your home fresh and in style for years to come.
Having worked in homes of all kinds up and down the country, we know the best trends and tips for keeping in style.
With that in mind, here are Best at Flooring’s top timeless décor tips:
Understand what you like (and don’t like)
If you’re looking to decorate for the long-term, it’s important to know what you like, what works, and what doesn’t.
This means that even if diamond encrusted chandeliers are in fashion during your redecoration, you don’t have to pay attention to them if they aren’t to your taste.
When it comes to accessories however, try and keep things small so you can rotate them with the seasons or as you fancy.
Clean lines stay clean
If you’re going for a modern effect, clean and clear lines, patterns, and prints are great for injecting character into a room.
To keep things up to date, mix up your patterns with bold chevrons, diamond-patterned pillows, and simple silhouettes.
If you have prints or patterns that are a little plain, let them be the background to more colourful or bright pieces.
Be smart with space
If you’re lucky enough to have just invested in a new floor for your home, letting it shine and stand out is a perfect way of freeing up space.
It’s worth remembering that timeless décor respects the space that it is in, so be smart about where you place furniture and rugs.
For those that are short on space, functional furniture can go a long way and help make rooms feel a little less cluttered.
If you happen to go for a flair rug, remember that you can afford to be brave with patterns, and that it’s often the case that the smaller the rug, the bigger-scale pattern you can enjoy.
Enjoy modern art
With a little modern or contemporary art spread through your household, it will always feel like your interior is rooted in today.
Although too much art can make a home feel a little cluttered, pieces here and there to complement the colours of a room can bring a fresh feeling or purpose to the environment.
Much like the trends we spoke of earlier, remember to only buy art that you really like, and familiarise yourself with an artist whose work you buy so that you can understand (and explain) the context of individual pieces.
If you enjoy getting out and about, try and find local artists in galleries, bars, or markets in and around your local area.
