The Dos and Donts of Design


Designing and styling your new renovation is the perfect excuse to show off your own unique taste and flair. Here we have put together a few tips to get you started.

Do opt to go with a natural colour palette for larger areas, such as white or beige. Neutral shades make a room feel more spacious, and tend to be less jarring. Bold colours can be used in smaller areas. If you feel daunted at the prospect of choosing a colour scheme, consider getting a professional in to guide you, such as an interior decorator.

Once you have your interior design theme sorted, it’s time to think about outdoors. If your new addition includes an external space, you will want the two areas to be interconnected through the use of complementary colours, styles and architecture. In this way, the area will really open up and make your home appear larger.

When it comes to lighting, many people stint on it. Don’t. Lighting can make or break the overall appearance of your home, so you will need the light fixtures to be to scale with the rest of your furniture. It will also need to light the area effectively.

And finally, don’t be a slave to architectural trends. It’s important to incorporate your own individual style so that you can enjoy your home for years to come.
