Owning your home is one of those endeavours in life that make you feel as if you are truly ‘adulting’. Along with the large burden of responsibility placed upon your shoulders now you have a mortgage to pay, you are now finally able to decorate your living space exactly as you want to.
Naturally, for the stylish amongst you, the ideal would be to combine practicality and a level of affordability with striking and beautiful home design and décor themes to show off your style and design knowledge.
So, with that being said, here are some fabulous home décor ideas that will be on trend for years to come and are perfect for first-time homeowners.
Stone Flooring Features
First and foremost, one of the most timeless and beautiful (as well as truly practical and durable) additions to your homeyou can make is that of natural stone flooring. It is also a design choice that will never go out of fashion and suits a number of different interior design styles.
Reputable and knowledgeable suppliers, such as mystonefloor.com, offer an impressive array of different stone tiles for every room to suit any budget.
Just a selection of the advantages in choosing natural stone flooring for one or more rooms in your home include:
Another huge trend this year (and one set to continue to be fashionable for many years to come) is that of textured worktops in darker colours and tones for the kitchen instead of the more usual white and creamy hues.
Ultimately, jet black is the most striking example of this trend, but if you do not fancy your first home to be so dramatically dark, then you could always opt for worktops in deep navy blues or even darker browns.
For even more style points, choose textured worktops over plain, matte versions.
Sociable Entertainment Spaces
Naturally, if your interior living spaces are slightly on the smaller side, then you may well simply not have the room to create a sociable area within every room of your home.
However, if you are fortunate enough to have that extra bit of space, then braver and bolder style choices in terms of sofas, ottomans and additional seating is an excellent way to create an entertaining focal point. What is more, you could even consider layering different throws and blankets across this additional seating, creating a warm and cosy nook in the winter months and a place to cool down and relax in the summer. Putting a sitting space in your kitchen or somewhere other than the living room can add a touch of elegance to any home.
Embrace curved lines instead of poker straight ones and from your furniture in the living room to the rug or carpet in the hallway, search stockists for curtains and blinds with scalloped edges and most importantly, focus your colour choices around light and darker blues and sea greens.
