Designing your home can be a daunting endeavour. You want a home that accommodates all of you and your family’s wants and needs, and it must look just right. There are many tasks to complete simultaneously along the way, and the process can be tiresome. If you’re going to embark on an interior design journey for your Asheville, North Carolina home, here are some approaches to make sure it’s an enjoyable experience with successful results.
Elevate your Asheville home with these luxury upgrades
Make sure it showcases your personality
Select a style
Working with an interior designer is valuable as they will guide you in your decision process if you’re having trouble deciding. Their job is to get to know their clients so they can help them make the right styling choices. The type of design you are personally drawn to will also depend on the type of property you have. You can incorporate a range of styles into any home, but they may need to be executed differently. Asheville has many contemporary, traditional, colonial, and old-world homes. Each of these will affect how you approach your interior design to ensure it won’t clash with the property’s exterior.
Consider the functionality
Just because something is designed to help you organize your life doesn’t mean it can’t serve a decorative purpose as well. There are plenty of pieces perfect for your space that add elegance and charm while helping you stay organized simultaneously. You don’t want to compromise on this, so start figuring out what you have and what you can buy to help keep everything in order. A clean, decluttered space will leave your home looking immaculate and gorgeous while allowing you to stay relaxed.
Pay attention to trends
These specific improvements will keep your home at the peak of relevance and increase its value. Current trends are essential to keep in mind, but also be aware of what is upcoming. You don’t want to spend the time and resources installing what you believe to be the latest trend only to find out that something else overtook it two months later.
Everything from furniture, materials, home layouts, and colors can quickly go in or out of trend, so do your research, figure out the most popular room styles and pieces you can use, and bring them into your home. If you don’t like a trend or it doesn’t fit with the rest of your home – don’t incorporate it. Only use what works for you and your home. A thoughtful selection of currently trending upgrades will have the positive impact on your home’s value that you need it to.
Commission customized furniture and fixtures
This is a perfect opportunity to incorporate more creative designs into your home through light fixtures. Additionally, installing smart lights is a wise choice as they turn themselves on when needed, while you can also adjust them straight from your phone.
Use color and texture
To cultivate a sense of elegance, tactfully use golds, silvers, or bronzes as accents in your decorations and furniture. Texture can also be added to the walls with different painting techniques or through the materials of your furniture and decorations. This will give your home a sense of depth and make it more visually dynamic.
Hire an interior designer
Investing in an experienced interior designer will make your life easier throughout the whole process. Their job is to make sure your vision is executed while enhancing the aesthetic of your home. They will have connections to architects, furniture designers, and more, so you won’t have to sort through the many options on your own.
A strong interior designer will also compile sketches or digital models of your room so you can see what it will look like and have full approval before moving forward. Asheville and the surrounding areas have a wide variety of interior designers with different specializations, so you won’t have difficulty finding the one right for you.
