When remodeling your living space, it can be fun to draw from trends that you see on television and online. Tastefully incorporating trends into your design vision can be hard to master, which is why finding an interior designer can be a great help. If you’re planning your space solo, here are some trendy ideas that can spark your imagination to reach the room’s potential.
Exposed Wood Beams
They’re beautiful and can even help make your house architecturally safer. Exposed wood beams on your ceiling add an element reminiscent of farmhouse living. Often, you can find inexpensive reclaimed wood or opt for synthetic versions that look like the real thing. Both vaulted and cathedral ceilings look great with exposed beams, but you can integrate them into any room.
Today’s trends take homeowners back to basics. Older buildings often have exposed brick hidden away behind dry wall, so before demo day make sure to check for this hidden treasure. If you live in a newer space, you can always incorporate an accent wall or columns made of brick for a rustic feel.
Thick Crown and Base Molding
Creating contrast between the ceiling and floor can help to make the room look bigger. The easiest way to do that is with thick crown and base molding. It doesn’t have to be intricate, but it adds an extra layer of interest to the space. Make sure to keep the color white and have a contrasting color on the walls.
This unexpected final touch came about recently, but gray tones can go modern or rustic. You can play around with the tone of the room, but ultimately it has a classic feel. Even gray furniture can help you complete your look–this gray sofa is the EZ Motion Reclining Sofa with Nails EZ1C01N. There are hundreds of fabric options offered by the England Furniture Company that can help you stay on trend and create a beautiful home.
