When meeting people, first impressions count and the same holds true for your home. When people walk through the door, the feeling they get from your entryway will set the tone for what they expect from the rest of the house. If your entryway is boring, they are not going to expect much when they walk around the corner. Depending on how much space you have, the entryway is the perfect place for a killer light fixture and some art. If you have room for a console or small table and a chair, make sure that you choose dramatic upholstery or statement accessories. No matter what your decor style, this is where you want to elicit a wow from your family and friends.
It might be one of the last things people think about in a home, lighting, however, is critical to a pleasant environment. Generally, bad lighting equals bad design. Relying on one source of lighting like a ceiling fixture is never a good idea. Different types of lighting need to have different purposes: task lighting, ambient lighting and general lighting. Evaluating a space and deciding on what type of lighting it needs is an important design decision. In addition to a ceiling fixture, a room needs mid-level lighting for warmth and tasks like reading. Some spaces way benefit from ambient lighting that helps create a mood. Accent lights are important for highlighting special accessories or art. and, regardless of how many different types you incorporate, placement is also important. Making sure that lighting casts the proper shadows is vital to effective illumination and remember, dimmer switches are your best friend.
While there is nothing wrong with a functional sink in clean, classic white, a distinctive sink can really elevate the design of a powder room or guest bath to a whole other level. Statement sinks come in stone, concrete, wood, colored and textured glass, and a slew of other materials. The design shows off the fine woodwork and grain, and the unusual shape is attention getting.
If anything in the home is trendy, it is accessories and decor pieces. It is fortunate that this is also the easiest part of your decor to switch out in order to get a fresh look. If you are still displaying that lava lamp or have too many mason jars on the counter, it is time to change it up and get rid of the old trends that are on their way out or are already history. Peruse design and decor accessories on line, see what current trends fit in with your style of home and incorporate some of them, retiring the old pieces. This does not mean you have to change everything, just the outdated ones. It is an inexpensive way to move into the current era without breaking the bank.
