Top Interior Ideas and Features for your Home
Perhaps you’ve just moved into a new house and you want to make it your own or maybe you want to give the key rooms in your home a new lease of life? Either way, stand-out design features can be a great way to lift a room and provide a focal point of interest.
Liven up your living room
The living room is the heart of the home and is used to welcome guests in addition to serving as a vibrant family room or a peaceful haven when it’s time to kick back and relax.
Emphasise the importance of this room with living room furniture that really sets it apart, such as a grand bookcase. You can even find great open-backed designs which act as display shelves and bookcases in one.
Opt for a towering bookcase filled with ancient literature, a black ash effect bookcase or a charming modular bookcase with two half doors and it becomes a design feature in itself. Even standard bookcases can also be used as a decorative feature in addition to a practical storage solution – why not display bright plants or colourful vases to add a splash of colour to the room?
Tables are another essential piece of furniture in the living room – but essential doesn’t have to mean boring. Why not try a chunky oak table with black glass inlaid tiles to bestow a contemporary twist on a traditional room or combine style and practicality with distinctive storage solutions? Even something simple like a coffee table with drawer storage can work wonders in a stylish living room.
S-shaped shelving units are another striking living room feature to add as is a stunning fireplace suite garnished with accessories.
Boost bedroom design
Fireplaces also work well in the bedroom, but if this isn’t an option then jazz up the essential furnishings, starting with the wardrobe. Wardrobes in a natural wood finish complement any room but why not opt for something in blue, pink or black to really stand out?
Mirrors are another bedroom essential but once again practicality does not have to translate to a sacrifice of style. Choose a full length wavy wall mirror or emulate French interior chic with a Rococo dressing table mirror that exudes elegance. You can also find a great range of intricately decorated and interestingly designed mirrors if you want a more traditional setup.
Revive a room with accessories
If you want your home to make an impression, visit the Homebase furniture store for a vast array of stylish and practical furnishings; ranging from the traditional to quirkier pieces.
If you don’t want to stray too far from the conventional with big pieces of furniture, why not experiment with accessories? Sometimes it’s the little things that have the biggest impact and unusual wall art or bold wallpaper is a great way to add a splash of colour and a distinctive style statement to a room.
The right stand-out design features can give a room extra style and a unique quality tailored to your personal tastes, helping transform any house into home sweet home.
