interior design tips for a modern stylish home

Building a home for yourself and your family is a massive undertaking. After all, with the time and money invested into your new home building project, you would hope to stay in this home for an extended period of time.

One of the key aspects to give consideration to is the interior design features. There are a whole host of different concepts and ideas that you can choose from, but remembering that certain aspects of the design will be unchangeable is something to keep in mind.

Investing in simple and clean core features is one way you can avoid complications further on in your home's lifetime. According to Noelle O'Riordan, an interior designer for apg homes, keeping your base colour scheme as low key as possible allows you to accentuate other aspects of your house.

"Your basic elements should probably be quite a nice, clean palate. The basics, like your background colour, should really be quite simple and clean, because this isn't something you're going to change every day," Ms O'Riordan said.

"A nice plain colour for your floors and walls then gives you the opportunity to change your furniture, your cushions and your manchester - these things can give you a whole new look. After all, stuff that is less expensive to change is what you should be playing with."

Neutral colours like off-whites, blacks and browns are timeless and can be adapted to any style you wish to achieve within your home. Louder, brighter colours can overwhelm a room and may not age as well in comparison to something more subtle.

Furthermore, factoring in natural light sources can accentuate the space in your home and keep your house feeling vibrant, fresh and modern. Coupled with a fantastic colour scheme and complementary furnishings will ensure that your home fulfils your overall design aspirations with ease.
